THE X-MEN WILL FALL
 
This May, leading up to the biggest decision of the X-Men’s lives, Eisner Award-winning writer Paul Jenkins and rising star artists Robert De La Torre and Laurence Campbell sow seeds of this discontent amongst the ranks of the mutant nation in X-Men: Prelude #1 (of 4)! There is a calm before every storm and in the months to come, the Children of the Atom will be faced with a decisive turning point. One that threatens to pit brother against brother, lover against lover, and mutant against mutant.
 
“To understand what is coming in the X-Men, you need to understand what has already transpired” says X-Men Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “The history of the X-Men is a huge tapestry and what we’re trying to do here is sum up the necessary info, while filling in blanks and adding new twists that will set fanboys a-Twittering. In this series, Paul lays out the complexities for the fans so they can see the foundation that is beginning to crack.”
 
The dream that Charles Xavier built – crumbles and what you knew about the X-Men changes here. It all begins in X-Men: Prelude #1 (of 4)!

Everything Changes In ASTONISHING X-MEN This May!
 
This spring, Astonishing X-Men takes a dramatic twist as two amazing pairs of creators team-up for a astonishing crossover event—all in one series! This April, acclaimed creators of Daniel Way , Christos Gage, Jason Pearson and Juan Bubillo set Astonishing X-Men on a monstrous monthly new path! The X-Men split into two teams, each on seemingly separate missions (told by rotating creative teams) that collide with major consequences for the X-Men!
 
“For the first time since its inception, the events of Astonishing X-Men are happening in the current X-Continuity” explains X-Men Senior Editor, Nick Lowe. “Not only are they reflecting where the X-Men are, you will also see the debut of a character that is going to be an important part of the X-Universe at the end of 2011!”
 
Way and Pearson kick things off in Astonishing X-Men #37 as Wolverine, Cyclops, Emma Frost and Armor are all ready knee deep in a giant monster outbreak flattening metropolitan Japan ! When the monstrous Fing Fang Foom attacks, the X-Men head into action! But while the X-Men are fending off the catastrophic beasts of Monster Island , Armor is contending with matters of a more personal nature. Can the X-Men save Tokyo without losing Armor?
 
While that’s going on, Christos Gage and Juan Bubillo step in with Astonishing X-Men #38 for a story that truly shows you’re not always better off sitting it out when it comes to mutant adventuring! Starting this May, Storm, Colossus, Kitty Pryde and Beast will have to pick up the slack as Brood invasion threatens the other side of the Pacific coast in a tale that gives a whole new urgency to the term “meanwhile!” And that’s not all because not only will Lockheed be meeting Kitty Pride for the first time since the silver bullet, but S.W.O.R.D.’s Agent Brand comes back into the X-fold!
 
No fan can miss this truly unique take on serial storytelling as the X-Men take on Foom AND the Brood at the same time! The Astonishing line, bringing fans the top creators in the industry on the top characters, gets even bigger this April as fans get a monthly dose of Astonishing X-Men!

His sharp ear and sardonic wit, combined with his knack for twisty, noir-inspired plots are the perfect combo for Daken to take full advantage of,” explains editor Jeanine Schafer. “We’re ramping up for a blow-out year – Daken has his sights set on a new status as a true kingpin, pulling all the strings, and stopping at nothing to get what he wants. Lots of gorgeous men and women, double-crosses and the constant threat of going over the edge. What more could you ask for in a great noir?”
 
With Williams onboard as new ongoing writer with this introductory POINT ONE issue, a new era for West Coast crime begins as Daken sets out make his own kind of killing in Hollywood! Discover the makings of Marvel’s next great super-villain and his grand plans for the future this May in Daken: Dark Wolverine #9.1!
