THE X-MEN CLASH WITH MYSTERIOUS NEW FOES THIS NOVEMBER IN ‘X OF SWORDS’

X OF SWORDS, the massive X-Men crossover tying into each and every X-Men title, kicks off next month! By November, this sprawling story will reach a senses-shattering conclusion, and the covers for these exciting final chapters were unveiled today.

X OF SWORDS will continue writer Jonathan Hickman’s grand vision for the X-Men that began last year in the hit series, House of X and Powers of X. Hickman and Excalibur writer Tini Howard join every current X-Men writer—Gerry Duggan, Benjamin Percy, Ed Brisson, Zeb Wells, Leah Williams, and Vita Ayala—to deliver the next great X-Men milestone. Featuring breathtaking art by Leinil Francis Yu, Carmen Carnero, Pepe Larraz, Stefano Caselli, Joshua Cassara, Mahmud Asrar, Phil Noto, and more, X OF SWORDS will be an unforgettable saga that will go alongside classic crossovers like The Mutant Massacre, Age of Apocalypse, and Messiah Complex in X-Men history.

“X OF SWORDS is by far the biggest story we’ve done since HOUSE OF X, with every series coming together to tell one tale,” X-Men Editor Jordan D. White promises. “It’s crazy, it’s epic, it’s fun, it’s tragic… you’re gonna love it! I know I do.”

Amidst the dramatic battles and unbelievable twists, fans will get introduced to a host of new X-Men enemies when a mysterious group of swordbearers emerge from the land of Arakko. Get a closer look at these exciting new additions to the X-Men mythos in the newly revealed covers, including their enigmatic leader—a brand-new character who will send lasting shockwaves throughout the world of mutants.
