Mike Carey got into writing through comic books, where his horror/fantasy series Lucifer garnered numerous international awards and was nominated for five Eisners. From there he moved into novels and screenplays, while still maintaining a presence in the comics world (he is currently writing two of Marvel's flagship titles, X-Men and Ultimate Fantastic Four). His movie Frost Flowers, an erotic ghost story, is currently in production with Hadaly/Bluestar Pictures. He lives in London, England, about as far as you can get from the centre of the city and still have access to the London Underground train network. His wife, Linda, writes fantasy for young readers under the pseudonym A.J. Lake. They have three children and an implausibly beautiful cat.
In the wake of Messiah CompleX, X-Men founder Professor Xavier was gravely injured. Now he's in for the fight of his life, as he struggles to regain what he's lost, without his X-Men to back him up. Divided He Stands collects the first few issues of the re-titled X-Men Legacy, with Mike Carey (Hellblazer, Ultimate Fantastic Four) at the helm. While the story of Divided He Stands is really nothing new, it does begin the process of picking up the pieces left behind in the aftermath of Messiah CompleX, in a world where the X-Men have disbanded. Not to mention that the tale ends up being pretty harrowing to boot. The real highlight of Divided He Stands are the artwork contributions from Scot Eaton, John Romita Jr., Billy Tan, Mike Deodato, and Greg Land; all of whom turn in excellent work. All in all, Divided He Stands is definitely worth checking out, as the direction of the post-Messiah CompleX X-Men universe begins to take shape.
