Yes! This is bound to be good: “Namor: The First Mutant,” a new ongoing series by writer Stuart Moore and artist Ariel Olivetti. I think it’s brilliant that Marvel Comics has finally made Namor the Sub-Mariner part of the X-Men. Afterall, as the title says, he WAS the first mutant (i.e. a mutated superbeing born of human and Atlantean parents).

Now he’s getting this new series by a creative team that is bound to please. Olivetti’s art is always amazing, and Stuart Moore (former VERTIGO editor) has a long track record. As a writer, he’s ready for the bigtime and this is it. This gorgeous cover by Jae Lee is the icing on the cake. The series launches in August. As they used to say in the sixties: Make Mine Marvel!
