Destiny Arrives for Clandestine!

Oh yeah!!  I absolutely love Alan Davis.  I'd have to say he's my second favorite artist.  I even own an original art page from when he was on X-Men.  Looks great on my wall.  He just has a classic touch to his style.  It's so clean and...pretty.  Check out the images below.  I always get excited whenver I hear he has a project coming up.  I just want to see him stay on an ongoing series.  I don't know if it's a personal choice or a stupid editorial decision but I just need to get my monthly fix of his work.  He's one of those artists where if you see even the most basic character drawn, you know it was done by him.

My love for his work goes back to when he was doing Captain Britain.  Then there was the original Excalibur with Chris Claremont (which then later he took over the writing too).  I liked ClanDestine the first time it was out.  I thought the characters and story were great.  Sadly it didn't last.  This made my weekend when I saw it was coming back.  This is definitely a must-have title.  Don't miss out.

Rory Destine may seem like a normal, everyday kid at school…but he’s part of Marvel’s freakiest family—the Destines! Alan Davis’ fan-favorite heroes return in Clandestine #1 (of 5), written and penciled by the acclaimed creator, as their secrets may be revealed to the world! It’s up to Rory and his twin sister Pandora to keep their abilities—and fantastic family history—secret from the public at-large, but when Rory decides it’s time to become the crime-fighting Crimson Crusader, he arouses the suspicions of those close to him! The man who helped launch Excalibur and brought you the thrilling Fantastic Four: The End presents a unique look at the life of the superheroes—and their battle to make the world a better place!

The mystery of Rory and Pandora’s mother’s identity has haunted the twins and now it’s time for them to get their answers! As they embrace their destiny as members of one of the world’s most powerful lineages, what they discover will shock them…and readers!

Just who or what comes calling at the Destine family’s Ravenscroft doorway? And will Rory make his dreaming of heroism come true…or face disapproval from his family? The centuries-old Destine family is about to get shaken up in Clandestine #1 (of 5), featuring the trademark action-packed style of Alan Davis! And just what is the connection between original Excalibur and the Destines?

Plus, don’t miss the Clandestine Classic Premiere HC, collecting the mysterious heroes’ first adventures ever in Clandestine #1-8, Marvel Comics Presents #158 and X-Men & The Clandestine #1-2!
