New X-Men series set in San Francisco

Posted By on Thu, Jul 24, 2008 at 1:51 PM


Mutants are bound for the West Coast! In the “biggest-shake up in X-Men History,” Mike Carey, of X-Men and Ultimate Fantastic Four fame, will bring the Marvel franchise to San Francisco in a new series appropriately titled “Manifest Destiny.” Since the fictional home of the group - the X-Mansion in Westchester NY - was decimated, the change of scenery will bring new momentum to the 48-year-old series.

The first installment features original X-Men Robert Drake, a.k.a. Iceman, with a story by C.B. Cebulski and Skottie Young. It hit comic stands on Sept. 3, 2008. -Edward Paik

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
