With a whole lot of sweet kit available at Uncanny X-force Day retailers, including this variant cover by J. Scott Campbell, I thought it was a great time to plug 'The best Apocalypse tale that just might've slipt past your notice': The Further Adventures of Cyclops and Phoenix.
The sequel to the also awesome Apocalypse hungry mini-series The Adventures of Cyclops and Phoenix, The Further Adventures takes the opposite path to it's futuristic predecessor and flips back to the past to show the part ol' En Sabah Nuh played in turning the evolutionary scientist Nathaniel Essex into Mister Sinister.
Peter Milligan's plot is quite dense, which is a rare find considering this mini sprung out of the mid 90's, but if you don't mind a bit of light tramping it really does give the old grey matter some pretty decent food for thought.
On the visual side, the chief artistic find of the late Milestone Comics, John Paul Leon does a brilliant job of creating an eerie Victorian England - and wait 'till you see the period style armour he's designed for Apocalypse!
So this Uncanny X-Force Day, as you trip down to your LCS to take part in all the fun, keep an eye out for The Further Adventures of Cyclops and Phoenix, so you can enjoy one of the X-Men's greatest foes first appearances, as you brace yourself for what may be his last!
