PREVIEW: ‘Mekanix #1’

Official Press Release

[Mekanix #1]
Writer Chris Claremont has contributed many characters to the world of the
X-Men, and — if pressed — he just might admit that one of his favorites is
Kitty Pryde. But what has the phasing mutant been up to lately? Would you
believe she’s been tending bar at the University of Chicago? Now, hot off
her appearance in X-MEN UNLIMITED #38, Kitty returns in the pages of
MEKANIX, a new six-issue miniseries by the team of Claremont and artists
Juan Bobillo and Marcelo Sosa.

“Kitty has always been the innocent window through which we saw the
consequences of racism that the X-Men faced,” stated editor Andrew Lis.
“Here, she opens that window on a very human level, showing us not other
galaxies, but the everyday prejudices that we all face.”

If you check out the following interior pages, you’ll see that she’s not the
only familiar face making a comeback! Yes, that cute girl with the dyed
blond hair is the former New Mutant named Karma! All the fun kicks off on
October 9th under a cover by fashion designer Celia Calle!
