The gripping, all-new adventure of the X-men's greatest icon, completely reimagined in the Manga style.

This is not the Wolverine you know.

Logan is a teenage rebel with a real good reason for having a real bad attitude. Ever since being left in a nearby forest–with no memory of who he was or how he got there–Logan (or Wolverine, as his classmates sometimes call him) has been stuck in a martial arts school in the icy wilds of Canada. No wonder he’s bored, restless, yearning. There’s a whole world out there, and Logan can almost taste it. But he’s chained to a past he can’t remember and can’t escape. Now it just may destroy his future.




Marvel's mutants in a radical remix! Kitty Pryde has always been the odd girl out. A mutant, she was born with strange superpowers, magical talents that make her the class freak. But Kitty's world is changed when she's invited to study at Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, a special home for mutant teens. There's just one catch: Kitty's the only girl at the all-boy school, and she ends up just feeling like a freak all over again.

Looks like they're trying to cover both shonen and shojo, kind of disturbing don't you think? I'm not really a fan of american comics, but it's interesting to see what they're trying, might check out the wolverine one if I see it in stores, not sure about buying it though.

Whoa. :O Seriously? I wonder why... It's not like they need to be or anything, right? And I don't know if any fans specially requested it.. wonder why they would turn them into manga? But they looks kinda interesting.. O_o

"The story of X-Men: Misfits actually revolves around Kitty Pryde as the first (and only) female student at Xavier's academy. So no Rogue or Storm, and probably no Gambit or Wolverine."

NO STORM

Lol, well it's clearly meant to be a shojo, brace yourself for yaoi themes.

The name "Kitty Pryde" makes me lol.

idk to be honest I think manga and comics should stick to their roots and not try to reach out to other genres. I'm kinda worried that they're just using the xmen name to get a certain fan base or to suck out as much money as possible from x men
