X-MEN SEQUEL COMICS
Marvel Comics has provided The Continuum with an exclusive first look at two of its upcoming projects tied to the X-Men movie sequel.
X-Men 2 Movie Prequel: Nightcrawler and X-Men 2 Movie Prequel: Wolverine are both 48-page books due in March.
The Nightcrawler book is written by Chuck Austen, with art by Karl Kerschl.
"I enjoyed writing it, and the art looks stunning," Austen told The Continuum. "It's a prequel to the movie, and it deals with how Nightcrawler got to where he is at the beginning of X², some of his time in the circus, and past relationships.
The Wolverine book is written by Brian K. Vaughan, with art by Tom Mandrake.
Here's how Marvel describes it:
"In this prequel to the upcoming X² movie, Wolverine hunts down the secrets to his mysterious past and finds someone looking for similar answers... Sabretooth! Starting where the original X-Men movie left off."
Both books will cost $3.50.

FANTASTIC FOUR'S "UNTHINKABLE"
Fantastic Four #67 serves as the opening chapter of "Unthinkable," a five-part story arc that features the return of Doctor Doom.
In an issue completely devoted to the villain, Doom seeks out a piece of his past - a piece that also holds the key to his future.
"I promise you with no hyperbole - this quest will leave Doom a changed man, redefined for the 21st century," FF writer Mark Waid said.
"Everything has been building to 'Unthinkable', which caps off our first year and culminates in July's extra-sized FF#71 - the 500th issue of Fantastic Four and a shocking change for Reed Richards."
Said editor Tom Brevoort, "We're going to remind everybody why Victor Von Doom is the premier villain of the Marvel line."
Fantastic Four #67 goes on sale March 26.
