THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF NEW MUTANTS

NEW MUTANTS 40TH ANNIVERSARY

In 1982, X-Men visionary Chris Claremont and legendary comic book artist Bob McLeod expanded the mutant mythos with the first of many X-Men spinoff books: NEW MUTANTS. Introducing the next generation of mutantkind with hard-hitting, thrilling coming-of-age adventures, the series represented a profound shift for the franchise and is celebrated for its diverse and layered cast of characters and its influential, and at times experimental, storytelling. Over the last 40 years, NEW MUTANTS has continued to be a timeless yet contemporary voice for the marginalized youth who must grow up in a harsh, cruel world. This September, Marvel Comics is proud to honor the anniversary of this groundbreaking series with a supersized issue! Crafted by current series writer Vita Ayala, NEW MUTANTS #30 will be a mosaic love letter dedicated to the mutant youngsters who have become the beacon and hope of a new generation of X-Men. Commemorating classic and new characters alike, this collection of shorts featuring artwork by talents such as Alex Lins, Jason Loo, Emma Kubert, and more, celebrates four decades’ worth of the joys and tribulations of being young, brave, and gifted in the world of X.

In honor of the book’s anniversary issue, McCleod has returned to his creation, showcasing the team’s original roster on a new variant cover.

“So many fans have come up to me at conventions and told me what a huge impact the New Mutants had on them in their teen years, and how relatable they were in all of their diversity. Native Americans, African Americans, and Kentuckians, all finally see themselves represented in the comics. It’s been very humbling,” McCleod said of the team’s impact. “Our New Mutants have gone through so many changes over the decades that I often didn’t recognize them as the same characters we created. So I was very pleased to get the chance to come full circle and do a variant cover homage to their very first published appearance on the cover of AMAZING HEROES #16. I hope fans continue to enjoy them for another 40 years!”

The issue will also feature a fourth-wall-breaking short by special guest writer Alyssa Wong, starring one of the most popular characters to debut in the series—Deadpool!

“What an honor to come aboard NEW MUTANTS for its 40th anniversary!” Wong said. “NEW MUTANTS is such a delight. It’s gonna be a party–so of course, I’m bringing Deadpool.”Check out the cover below and stay tuned for more news, including story details and creative announcements, about this monumental NEW MUTANTS issue coming in September!

Michael Jackson’s Thriller album turns 40 via 360 MAGAZINE

Four Decads of Thriller

Sony Music and the Estate of Michael Jackson announced that it will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. The biggest selling album of all time.

The November 18 release of Michael Jackson Thriller 40 is a double CD set comprised of Michael’s original masterpiece Thriller. The second disc will be full of surprises for fans. It will include never-released tracks which were worked on by Michael for the Thriller album. To date, the album has amassed in excess of 100 million in sales worldwide.

In the US, Walmart will have an exclusive version of the original Thriller album with an alternate 40th anniversary cover, while Target will have an exclusive version of the original album with a commemorative Thriller 40 vinyl slip mat.  Both of these will also be available outside the US from various retailers.

Mastered from the original analog master tapes, Mobile Fidelity will also make available the original Thriller album as a One-Step 180g 33RPM LP, pressed at RTI and strictly limited to 40,000 numbered copies as well as a hybrid SACD . (An UltraDisc One-Step 180g 45RPM 2LP set of Thriller will be released at a future date.)

Visit HERE for further information and to Pre-Order.

Several activations are planned between now and the end of the year to honor Michael’s epic creation which won a record setting 8 Grammys, smashed musical barriers and changed the frontiers of pop music and videos forever.  Michael Jackson’s Thriller has spent more than 500 weeks on the Billboard album chart and has sold over 100 million albums since its release on November 30, 1982. The first such activation is the first drop of new merchandise featuring the special Thriller 40 logo which is now available exclusively through the MichaelJackson.com Official Site.

MORE ABOUT THRILLER:

Thriller holds a modern-day record of 37 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard. It was the first album in history to spend each of its first 80 weeks in the album chart’s Top 10, a feat only reached by one other album in the nearly four decades since. During its 112th week on Billboard’s album chart, it became the first title ever to be certified RIAA 20X multi-Platinum (October 30, 1984) and became the first title ever to be certified more than RIAA 30X multi-Platinum in 2015 and since has been certified at 34x Multi-Platinum.  

Worldwide, Thriller went to #1 in practically every country in the world, including the UK, France, Italy, Australia, Denmark, Belgium, South Africa, Spain, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada and apartheid South Africa and remains the biggest selling album of all time with sales in excess of 100 million.  Seven tracks from the album became Top 10 singles, and three, Beat It, Billie Jean, and Thriller, went No. 1. 

The music on Thriller was so singular for the time it defied any definition of rock, pop or soul that had gone before. Beat It was a new kind of pop-rock hybrid and demolished the longstanding segregation between black and white music with Eddie Van Halen’s incendiary guitar. On The Girl Is Mine, two men, one white and one Black, banter about the same girl. On the same album were songs like the African-rooted Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin and the rhythm and blues-based Billie Jean.   

Michael set out to revolutionize how to tell a story and entertain on a grand scale through film but faced roadblocks. Despite the luscious cinematography, dramatic narrative and spectacular choreography of Billie Jean, a fledgling MTV, which was programming white rock artists almost exclusively, refused to play it. Epic persisted. Once the wall came crashing down, MTV’s ratings soared and a door was opened for a generation of African American artists. “He was MTV’s Jackie Robinson,” said cultural critic Touré.

Next, came the unforgettable short film for Beat It, which featured Michael bringing two gangs together through the power of music and dance. And then there was Thriller. Premiered at the AVCO Theatre in Los Angeles in 1983, it sold out every night for three weeks. No other video before or since has generated such excitement and has such a hold on our attention, such that 40 years later we all share it as a collective memory and it remains the only music video to be inducted into the elite National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.

Music from Thriller and other hit albums are featured in the Vegas show Michael Jackson ONE, at the Michael Jackson ONE Theater at Mandalay Bay as well as the acclaimed Broadway play MJ The Musical at the Neil Simon Theatre in NYC, which was nominated for 10 Tony Awards. Michael Jackson One by Cirque du Soleil is an electrifying fusion of dance as well as acrobatics which wows audiences. Powered by his greatest hits in a state-of-the-art surround sound atmosphere. ONE takes the audience on a visual expedition–63 overly artistic dancers engaged in extensive choreography.

Michael has sold more than 1 billion records and remains one of the top streaming artists of all time.

Gucci Watchmaking Fiftieth Anniversary

Half a century ago in 1972, in the watchmaking heartland of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Gucci Swiss Timepieces presented the world with a new horological design proposition—watches combining unparalleled Swiss technical know-how with the best in Italian design. In 2021, Gucci made its long-awaited debut in high watchmaking with a series of Swiss-made designs showcasing technological flair, elevated materials, and unique decorative artistry. Now, to mark the 50th anniversary of Gucci Swiss Timepieces, the House celebrates its next bold step into this mesmerizing universe.

Gucci Wonderland

In 2022, Gucci presents its second high watchmaking collection at the Gucci Wonderland event in Geneva. The mood of this kaleidoscopic collection is inspired by a magical fairground, where the most refined watchmaking complications appear alongside rainbow-like gems and celestial wonders. Entering this enchanted universe is like being catapulted onto a thrilling series of roller-coaster rides. Three new Gucci-designed watch movements are revealed:

Gucci 25H Skeleton Tourbillon: With its impossibly sleek, 8mm-thick case and captivating see-through dial, the Gucci 25H Skeleton Tourbillon arrives with a new Gucci-exclusive caliber flying tourbillon. Because the watch is designed around movement, it creates a fantastic illusion of the mechanics floating above the brushed and polished titanium bridges that cross the base of the dial. With skeleton hands adding a subtle layering effect, the Gucci 25H Skeleton Tourbillon is a feat of craft, style, and extraordinary skill, announced by a flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock. This complication regulates timekeeping while its sparse technical design adds a contemporary, decorative touch. Created in 100% recycled gold—in white and yellow bracelet variations—and in slate-grey titanium with a rubber strap, the Gucci 25H Skeleton Tourbillon becomes a retro-futuristic time machine for the wrist.

G-Timeless Planetarium: A pioneering addition to the high watchmaking genre, with its halo of 12 princess-set gemstones circling the dial, the G-Timeless Planetarium shines a precious light on time’s ever-changing view. It also conceals a showstopping power: the gem-set wheel is activated at the touch of a button, rotating around the dial in a gala of light. This delightful on-off control is made possible by a groundbreaking invention: the Dancing Hours Flying Tourbillon, a new Gucci-exclusive caliber with a hypnotic diamond star at its center. The arrow-shaped watch hands pay homage to high watchmaking’s heritage of fine technical detail, while each turn of the dial is a playful reminder of Gucci Swiss Timepieces’ dynamic fusion of new technology and timeless Italian style. The G-Timeless Planetarium is offered in white, rose, or yellow-gold variations with its rotating wheel of green tsavorite, blue tanzanite, or yellow beryl gemstones.

G-Timeless Moonlight: Gucci takes the carnival of time to the skies with the G-Timeless Moonlight. On the dial, a beautifully decorated moon waxes from a gleaming silver crescent to a pearlescent whole before beginning its celestial journey all over again. Created around the new, Gucci caliber GGV838.MP, the sheer technological precision of the G-Timeless Moonlight allows it to dictate its own time, following the 29.5-day lunar month. A feat of high watchmaking excellence, this timepiece only needs to be adjusted every 360 years. It is presented in pink gold and white gold, with a natural meteorite dial, where fairground planets spin and stellar diamonds shine. 

G-Timeless Dancing Bees

In 2022, Gucci presents new diamond-set additions to its family of G-Timeless Dancing Bees tourbillon timepieces. In homage to historical en-tremblant jewelry styles, where jewels were exquisitely engineered to move in rhythm with the wearer, 12 bees shimmer around the diamond-set dial as the wrist moves. Experimenting further, master craftsmen have heightened the natural, glossy sheen of two rare opal varieties—pink and green—to form rectangular ‘bricks’, from which they have created a miniature chevron pattern on a mother-of-pearl dial. The natural markings of the opals render each dial design unique, while the mirrored caseback allows a personal message to be engraved. Each G-Timeless Dancing Bees marquetry edition is presented either in white-gold and yellow-gold bracelet or in alligator straps variations. 

50 Years of Visionary Watch Design

To celebrate 50 years of Gucci Swiss watchmaking, Gucci Wonderland presents, for the first time, a journey through five unparalleled decades of Italian-born, Swiss-made design. For the very first time, the House has assembled a treasure-trove of modern-era watch creations, from the curious desk-clocks and watch diaries of the 1950s, to the handbag watches of the 1960s and semi-precious stone bangle watches of the 1970s. The golden ‘floating’ penny-dial watches of the 1980s, with circular dial designs in the House’s red and green palette with luxurious lizard leather straps, are a strong reminder of how, through every era, Gucci has seamlessly translated its classic fashion motifs into stylish watch designs. Iconic equestrian symbols, for instance, appear through decades of Gucci watch design in various creative guises. The futuristic 1990s steel watches, some with diamond-encrusted ‘G’ cases, illuminate the House’s pioneering move into fashion watches created with precious decoration and technical artistry. This very special Geneva exhibition underlines the Florentine luxury House’s visionary influence on watch design, from 1970 to the present day.

Gucci 25H 

Three new 30mm Gucci 25H quartz models are offered: stainless steel, stainless steel and gold plated, with a dazzling diamond dial design. 

Also revealed are two gender-neutral Gucci 25H glass dial designs in 38mm quartz variations. Whether in turquoise-blue or pink glass, each dial is designed to light up the wrist with a ray of opalescent color that changes tone with the light. 

Another dynamic, color-coded Gucci 25H design blends pink, blue, and green aluminum with a pink-brass dial. The caseback also reveals a very special touch—the Gucci exclusive caliber decorated with a special wave pattern.

G-Timeless

The G-Timeless with bee motif arrives in new editions, in 32mm and 38mm dial varieties, with a quartz or automatic movement and an 18kt yellow-gold, steel, or bi-metal case. The subtle dial decoration is offset by vibrant material mixes so that light reflects across the metal finishes. Designs include sun-brushed silver and gold dial options, as well as pink lacquer and black onyx dials. The black onyx dials form a dramatic, semi-precious backdrop of 15 golden bees, while the sun-brushed golden dials are accented with harmonious yellow-gold bee motifs. Case and strap variations include all-steel, all-yellow-gold, or bi-color yellow-gold and steel. Each dial is emblazoned with Gucci bees. 

Gucci Dive

A seriously sporty timepiece, the Gucci Dive is reinvented with bio-based materials, housing a Swiss automatic movement with 200m water resistance. Three new designs are presented, each with a case and strap in a new rubber-like material created from plant substances including oil and corn. The Gucci Dive is offered in matte white, aquamarine, and natural moss green.

Grip

In 2022, the signature Grip appears with a highly contemporary yellow-gold PVD dial case, in 27 or 38mm. With its warm, 1970s vibe heightened by an elegant black alligator strap, this new iteration blends eras of style.

Sesquicentennial of Pirelli

“What an original stroke, don’t you think? Look at that P…it looks elastic, like rubber”. These are the words that launched the celebrations of 150 years of Pirelli, with the setting of the Piccolo Teatro of Milan where a theatrical story brought together testimonials, voices, and images to represent a history of industry, culture, tradition, technology, and passion that began on January 28, 1872.

The most significant moments were revisited by Ferruccio De Bortoli, Stefano Domenicali, Paolo Mieli, Renzo Piano, Ferruccio Resta, and Annamaria Testa, alongside the Executive Vice Chairman and CEO, Marco Tronchetti Provera, and Alberto Pirelli, representing the bond between family and company. The event, conducted by Ilaria D’Amico, recounted Pirelli’s journey across three centuries through the things that most distinguish it: international scale, factories, relationship with culture and artists, creativity in communication, presence in sport and motorsport, a constant search for innovation, and cutting-edge technology.

“Today we wanted to take a journey together through history but with our eyes on the future. Anticipating change is what Pirelli has done for 150 years thanks to the solidity of its entrepreneurial culture and ability to be a protagonist of the present. These things have allowed us to reach this milestone with a brand established around the world. We felt it important to share this story with our city, our country, and all the international groups and communities that we work with every day. A thank you to all the 30,000 people who every day at Pirelli build our history”, said Marco Tronchetti Provera, Executive Vice Chairman and CEO of Pirelli.

The History

On stage at the Piccolo Teatro, immersed in a set made up of five large screens, four actors told the story of Pirelli, beginning with its history. Images, videos, and photographs of the past and present alternated with the voices of the actors, who revisited the company’s different moments together with Ferruccio De Bortoli, Paolo Mieli, Alberto Pirelli, and Marco Tronchetti Provera. The dialogue centered on the figure of Leopoldo Pirelli and his father Alberto through the recollections of his grandson. His role in the company’s contribution to the modernization and industrialization of the country was discussed.

A journey, Pirelli’s, began on January 28, 1872, by Giovanni Battista Pirelli, who at only 23 years of age bet on something absolutely new: rubber. In the beginning, the company produced insulators for telegraphs and cables that linked the most distant points of the newly born Italy. It grew rapidly around the world and produced objects of everyday use (from swimming caps to toys to raincoats) and tires for wagons and bicycles. From its birth, it focused on innovation; the company offered products that also become symbols of the country’s progress. But even Pirelli encountered obstacles: the failed mergers in the 1990s with Dunlop and Continental and the plan to integrate networks and content in telecommunications, pursued from the early 2000s through Telecom Italia and cut short by external interference. Crises were overcome restarting from the core business, leading the company to focus on tires. 

The factories

The journey onstage at the Piccolo Teatro continued with the exploration of the company’s industrial tradition. Through its factories, Pirelli put down roots in many countries, currently 12, building plants that are light-filled, safe, and sustainable. They are welcoming places for people working with passion and for industry 4.0 with simulators, artificial intelligence, and robots like MIRS invented by Pirelli itself. In summary, there are 18 beautiful and efficient factories, with Settimo Torinese the model, designed and built by the architect Renzo Piano. 

Culture, communication, and image

On its journey, Pirelli was always in dialogue with artists and intellectuals to keep an eye on society. It did so, and continues to do so, through innovative languages and instruments, such as the “Rivista Pirelli“, Pirelli Calendar, Pirelli HangarBicocca, publications and exhibitions of the Fondazione Pirelli, products of Pirelli Design, World Magazine, and the volumes of its Annual Report enriched with the contributions of artists and writers. The list to emerge from the Piccolo Teatro’s stage is rich and begins with the iconic Pirelli logo, born in New York at the beginning of the 20th century, with that long P which stretches as if it were rubber. The company experimented with new languages, produces tires, and interviews Umberto Eco. It talks with writers, philosophers, poets: from Carrère to Kureishi, from Elio Vittorini to Eugenio Montale and Salvatore Quasimodo. It hosts Luchino Visconti and John Cage and puts Carl Lewis in high heels.

These themes were addressed by Annamaria Testa, Ferruccio De Bortoli, Paolo Mieli, and Marco Tronchetti Provera—recounting different worlds with the underlying idea that when you are involved in the industry with passion you are also producing culture.

Motorsport and passion for sport

What is the passion that makes people excited at Pirelli? Motors. That is an area where technology is fundamental, as explained by Alberto Pirelli. Now, Pirelli is present in over 350 motorsport competitions. The Beijing-Paris of 1907 is particularly memorable. Prince Scipione Borghese, driving an Itala equipped with Pirelli tires, covered 17,000 kilometers to finish 20 days ahead of the team in second place. This was a great success that transformed mobility into innovation and spectacle, and competitions into open-air laboratories. The onstage discussion of the greatest motorsport competition involved Stefano Domenicali, who now heads Formula 1, on the eve of an important change: the introduction of 18″ tires in a competition where, in the midst of Italian flags, there is also Pirelli’s. For Pirelli, however, sport is not limited to motors, but also football, cycling, winter sports, and sailing, with Luna Rossa.

Innovation, research, product

History reveals that Pirelli is a company that always moves with its eyes on the future. “Look inside to understand, to discover new solutions,” was once said Mr. Emanueli, who signed many of the 6,700 patents registered by Pirelli in 150 years. A lesson told by Mr. Emanueli is now known by the over 2,000 people who work in Research & Development, a sector of fundamental importance for the company. Its collaborations with leading universities (over 50) are also fundamental, as explained by Ferruccio Resta, who tells Ilaria D’Amico also about the relationship of reciprocal inspiration that links Pirelli and the Politecnico di Milano.

The “heirs of Emanueli” are involved in managing the acceleration of innovation, as in the case of electric vehicles, where Pirelli is already present with Elect, a package of technological solutions ad hoc to handle the different weight, acceleration, and consumption of these vehicles. Also, new connected products like the Cyber Tyre, with sensors that supply real-time information to the driver, are being developed. 

At the center, as always, there is natural rubber with which Pirelli produced the world’s first FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified tire, testifying to a 100% sustainable supply chain. A great safeguard for the environment occurs, for example, with Pirelli’s participation in the Birdlife project to conserve biodiversity in Indonesia. Thanks to its commitment at the social, environmental, and economic levels, Pirelli finds itself at the top of the most important sustainability indices.

I sincerely thank all the folks up at Marvel, and Disney, who worked for this fortunate re-connection to happen.,” Romita Jr. said. “To add to all this, and I hate to add a third section to my good fortune, is the opportunity to start off with a huge project, which is the 60th anniversary of the Fantastic Four! It is an honor and extreme privilege to be asked to work on this along with a friend and former collaborator, Dan Slott!
