Marvel have revised their solicitations and have released new covers for December's X-Men #4 and New Mutants #4.

For X-Men #4, Marvel has added solicit text - previously the issue listed the same description as issue #3, which also comes out in December.

The change to New Mutants #4 is more substantial, with a new artist - Marco Failla - replacing series artist Rod Reis, and replacement solicit text. The new text describes an Armor-led recruitment drive for Krakoa gone wrong, while the previous text promised "The explosive return of Cannonball!" Here is that original text:

"The team has reached the Shi’ar Galaxy only to find the empire in turmoil! Deathbird returns and she won’t let Bobby and Sam get in the way of what she wants!"

Here is the updated text for both issues:

When Armor and her team set off to bring their friends home to Krakoa, they thought it’d be an easy sell and a quick trip. Then everything went sideways, and now they’re in serious trouble—looks like it’s time to call in the cavalry. But will that be enough to turn the tide?
