Ilyana Rasputin has been a part of the X-Men family for decades, but her most recent incarnation as a member of Cyclops' Uncanny X-Men team has elevated her prominence in the Marvel Universe. She's had an incredibly complicated history, which is often a prerequisite for membership in the X-Men, but to be fair, she really came into her own in the Marvel Now era.
Now, after the success of the the ArtFX+ Avengers line, Kotobukiya has been filling out the roster of the Marvel Now X-Men. To this point, Cyclops and Emma Frost have been fully revealed, with Magik previously only being teased as a prototype at SDCC 2015. This week, Koto officially unveiled the painted prototype of the Adi Granov-designed statue, showing Illyana in her bad-ass splendor.
Not everyone can make it to San Diego Comic-Con to see what's happening in person, but ComicsAlliance has you covered! We know that it's not just about the news that comes out of the biggest con of the year --- it's also about seeing the booths, checking out new collectibles, and putting faces to names of your favorite creators. Thankfully talented photographer Pat Loika is on hand to document as much as he can for your enjoyment.
Scroll down for some exceptional photography of the people, places, and things that SDCC has to offer. Sore feet, aching back, and claustrophobia not included.
While it was a tad controversial when Emma Frost got her new black costume in Uncanny X-Men, she's completely owned the look, as she has with all of her costumes through the years. As one of the most powerful telepaths in the Marvel Universe, her confidence knows no bounds. That attitude is captured perfectly in the new statue from Kotobukiya.
As part of the planned Uncanny X-Men line, which is designed by Adi Granov, the Emma Frost statue realizes the teacher's full potential in 3D form. The line follows a similarly-styled series based on Granov's take on the Avengers from Marvel Now. A complete team including Cyclops (due in October), Magik, Wolverine, Magneto, Beast and Rogue is planned, but so far only the mutant power couple has been shown beyond concept art.
The Cup O' Joe panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday featured one of the biggest announcements of the weekend as Marvel unveiled the creative teams for its first three all-new Star Wars comics. The new books have been hotly anticipated since plans for Marvel Star Wars books were first announced back in January.
Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca will team for a Darth Vader ongoing series; Mark Waid and Terry Dodson will author a five-issue Princess Leia mini series; and Jason Aaron and John Cassaday have been named as the creative team for a Star Wars ongoing series. The three series will launch through the first quarter of 2015.
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we've created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web...
The brilliant scientist Maya Hansen was first introduced in 2005, in the pages of Iron Man: Extremis by Warren Ellis and Adi Granov.

The Fantastic Four are the talk of the town these days, with the exciting new developments in the Fantastic Four ongoing series and their multimedia appearances, and there's no better place to look for FF action than in Marvel's graphic novel collections
