X-Men '92 Returns!

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 30, 2015, 12:00 AM
Big news for me this week:  Marvel just announced that X-MEN '92--originally a Secret Wars miniseries--will return as on ongoing series...with covers by me!  www.newsarama.com/26038-x-men-…
Stoked.  I did variant covers for the mini-series, and I'm delighted to return for covers on the regular series.  Love these characters so much--gold star if you can name everyone shown here!  Two gold stars if you can identify the two characters who're conspicuously missing from the Issue #1 cover.  Hmmm....

X-Men '92 continues the adventures of the team that fans remember from the X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon, which aired on FOX in the '90s.
