Angel Hits On Angela and Drax and Iceman Do Some Male Bonding In Dale Keown’s ‘Trial Of Jean Grey’ Variants
Coming off the “Battle of the Atom” storyline, the All New X-Men are entering “The Trial of Jean Grey.” A crossover between Guardians of the Galaxy and All-New X-Men, the story features the original X-Men, brought into the present from the past, dealing with an alien race that has decided to put Jean Grey on trial for the crimes of the Phoenix, which she has yet to commit in her own timeline.
For the variant covers to the series, Marvel has enlisted veteran artist Dale Keown. Perhaps best known for his work on The Incredible Hulk in the early ’90s, Keown is not quite as prolific with interior comics art as he once was, but he’s still occasionally producing cover work for Marvel, in addition to his creator-owned comics. For this series, Keown has produced variants for each issue — taking place in All New X-Men #22-24 and Guardians of the Galaxy #11-13 — with each piece spotlighting a member of each team. And, yes, Angel and Angela are paired up, because of course they are.
You can check out the first five covers, courtesy of Marvel, below.
‘The Trial of Jean Grey’ begins in All New X-Men #22, on sale in January.
