Marvel releases an X-Men timeline graphic teasing the introduction of three new Reign of X titles scheduled to debut following the Hellfire Gala.
The release of an X-Men timeline graphic reveals Marvel Comics plans to expand the franchise’s Reign of X initiative with three secret titles in the summer through the fall.
Reign of X’s already announced series’ include Children of the Atom by Vita Ayala and Bernard Chang, April’s Way of X by Si Spurrier and Bob Quinn, and May’s X-Corp by Tini Howard and Alberto Foche. Following the eventful Hellfire Gala in June, three more X-Men comics will debut from creators Gerry Duggan, Leah Williams, Pepe Larraz, Valerio Schiti and Jonathan Hickman.
The graphic teases three new first issues for July, August and September. July will see Marauders, Cable and Planet-Size X-Men writer Gerry Duggan team with X of Swords and Planet-Size X-Men artist Pepe Larraz; August brings a classified comic from X-Factor writer and S.W.O.R.D. artist Valerio Schiti, with Head of X Jonathan Hickman paired with a redacted artist for another top-secret title.
Of course, with the Planet-Size X-Men creative team of Duggan and Larraz working on an upcoming July title, it is possible whatever events spin out of the one-shot will be continued here. Also of note is the logo for the Duggan/Larraz comic is the same as X-Men, which means we may see a relaunch of the title as well. With Schiti pairing with Williams on the classified comic, S.W.O.R.D. may have a new artist going forward. As for Hickman, his previous tenure at Marvel included the prolific writer helming multiple titles that often told the same story but from different perspectives. For example, he wrote both Fantastic Four and Future Foundation, along with Avengers and New Avengers before Secret Wars.
The Hellfire Gala will unfold over twelve titles and twelve stories, all focused on a single night that will not only announce the first team of Krakoan X-Men to the world, but also reveal the startling plans that mutantkind has in store for the Marvel Universe.
