Okay, gang, this weekend was an eventful weekend for comic and pop culture fans so today we’ll be rounding up the highlights of the San Diego Comic-Con! (Also a reminder for readers, we also have several articles already written.)
The House of Marvel has shown off all the goods this year so far, bringing in bombshells such as Hickman’s X-Men run bringing in comics spinning out from the House of X and Powers of X; “The Children of the Atom have seized the future.”
“October, new era dawns! The X-Men find themselves in a whole new world of possibility…and things have never been better!”
Jonathan Hickman and artist Leinil Yu bring the saga of Cyclops and his hand-picked squad of mutant powerhouses forward in X-Men! (Cover Drawn by: Leinil Yu)
A new era dawns, a new connection forms between mutants and the magic of the world…and that of Otherworld! Coming in October: EXCALIBUR #1! (Cover drawn by: Mahmud Asrar).
Writer Tini Howard and artist Marcus To join forces to shape a new day! Mutantkind has always been special…as has their relationship with the world—or WORLDS—around them. Can the new Captain Britain forge a new way through the chaos with her companions Rogue, Gambit, Jubilee, Rictor…and Apocalypse!?
Led by Captain Kate Pryde and funded by Emma Frost and the Hellfire Trading Company, Storm, Pyro, Bishop, and Iceman sail the seas of the world to protect those hated and feared as the MARAUDERS! Cover drawn by: Russell Dauterman
Gerry Duggan and artist Matteo Lolli craft a ttale that illustrates how, even in this glorious new dawn, Mutantkind faces hardships and oppression from their human counterparts…
This November, Jonathan Hickman joins fellow writer Ed Brisson and artist Rod Reis for NEW MUTANTS #1
Hickman and Reis continue with issue #2 as the next generation claims the future! The classic New Mutants—Sunspot, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Karma, Magik, and Cypher—get together with a few new friends—Chamber and Mondo—to seek out their missing member and share the good news…a mission that takes them into space alongside the Starjammers!
Not all belong in paradise… And some become FALLEN ANGELS!
Written by Bryan Edward Hill with art by Szymon Kudranski, Psylocke finds herself in this new world of Mutantkind unsure of her place in it… But when a face from her past returns only to be killed, she seeks help from others to get vengeance. Cable and X-23 join Kwannon for a personal mission that could jeopardize all of mutant existence!
The cost of the future isn’t cheap… And that’s where X-FORCE comes in!
Written by Benjamin Percy with art by Joshua Cassara, X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world—one half intelligence branch, one half special ops. Beast, Jean Grey, and Sage on one side—Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino on the other.
In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force. We’re not there…yet.
