Marvel today revealed the covers for X-Men comics shipping in November 2019. November is the second month of the Dawn of X, the new X-Men line announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2019. The line launches following the conclusion of Jonathan Hickman's House of X and Powers of X miniseries. Hickman writes the flagship X-Men series. The other five ongoings are Excalibur, Marauders, New Mutants, Fallen Angels, and X-Force.
“House of X and Powers of X lay the groundwork for a whole new world of X-Men stories for years to come, and the Dawn of X books are the promise of that new world come to life,” said X-Men Senior Editor Jordan D. White when the books were announced. “They are the start of the new era that will change how we think of the X-Men and the kinds of stories we tell with them. It all begins here.”
These new series are said to kick off the first phase of Jonathan Hickman’s massive multi-year plan for the X-Men, redefining the characters and franchise for a new era. They are said to be perfect jumping-on points for new and long-time X-Men fans. Keep reading to see details for each of the six new series.
