Marvel: Noir: Intrigued

Sunday, September 14, 2008 Posted by Unknown , , No comments

Marvel has slowly been releasing information about their next X-men event. Apparently, they're going to release small little bits of information along with a really awesome pinup of one of the characters that is going to play a role in the new event.

The new event has been confirmed to as X-Men: Noir, and as the title suggests, it will place the familiar cast of the X-Men books in a very unfamiliar setting--1930's noir.

Here are 5 of the pinups that have been released. I love the style of the pieces using traditional black and white (the monochromatic color choice that is so iconic for the noir genre) as well as choice usage of colors to reveal each character.

Now I'm not 100% sure of each character, but based off of the image here's the educated guess made by the comic community so far: Gambit (top of the article), Magneto, [EDIT] Spiderman[/EDIT], Cyclops, and Rogue.
