Learn what’s to come in some of your favorite X-Men titles this February!
New York, NY— November 14, 2023 — This January, two interconnected series will close out the X-Men’s revolutionary Krakoa era: Gerry Duggan and Lucas Werneck’s FALL OF THE HOUSE OF X and Kieron Gillen and R.B. Silva’s RISE OF THE POWER OF X. These five-issue limited series will present the final battle of Krakoa and see the fate of mutantkind decided in a war across space and time!
The mythos-shattering storytelling of FALL OF THE HOUSE OF X and RISE OF THE POWERS OF X will also impact the current X-MEN ongoing series where the team finally take the fight to the most critical threat to mutantkind, Nimrod. Special limited series like the recently announced CABLE, DEAD X-MEN, and RESURRECTION OF MAGNETO, will tell of the vital missions and epic quests spinning out of FALL OF THE HOUSE OF X and RISE OF THE POWERS OF X. And the frontlines of Krakoa’s last stand are never deadlier than in the pages of X-FORCE which gears up for its milestone 50th issue and the conclusion of Krakoa with a charactering-redefining turn for X-Men icon Beast.
Today, learn more about this pivotal turning point in X-Men history with a sneak peek at what’s to come in these five titles in February.
