Marvel's Mystique #7
By Brian Jacks


Buoyed by strong critical and fan reception, the buzz that continues to build around writer Brian K. Vaughan and the free full reprint of its debut issue in last month's MARVEL PREVIEWS #1, the ongoing series MYSTIQUE is breaking out as one of the fastest growing of the MARVEL TSUNAMI 'First Wave" titles.

Sales of MYSTIQUE have risen 3 out of the last 4 issues, and Marvel thinks the 'wave' will continue as readers discover the book when it begins its new, second story arc with October's MYSTIQUE #7, featuring a special 'metallic ink on black' cover.

That issue also serves as the debut of new penciler Michael Ryan, who joins Vaughan as one-half of the series' regular creative team. Original artist Jorge Lucas moves over to IRON MAN beginning with October's issue #73.

In the new four-issue story arc entitled "Tinker, Tailor, Mutant, Spy," Mystique's new assignment from Xavier is to track down a possible new biological weapon - a deadly new strain of smallpox. But Mystique is getting restless following Xavier's orders...and he might not be the only boss she's working for these days. And if that's not enough, there's another mutant who wants to get his or her hands on this potentially apocalyptic bio-weapon.

MYSTIQUE #7, the 32-page opening chapter of the four-part "Tinker, Tailor, Mutant, Spy", goes on sale October 15th with a cover price of $2.99.
