A.X.E. Judgment Day Will Crossover With Everything In July

Kieron Gillen and Valerio Schiti's A.X.E. Judgment Day event begins with a prelude issue Eve Of Judgment this June before pretty much every single Marvel comic book title ties into it in July. Consider this Marvel easing you in to spending your entire disposable income on a series of comic books in July. Maybe they'll do some special variant covers made out of ramen so you can cut your food budget too.

A.X.E. Judgment Day

Kieron Gillen and Valerio Schiti's A.X.E.: Judgment Day kicks off in a special prelude issue this June before taking over the Marvel Universe come July

The pieces of the upcoming event will fall into place in June's A.X.E.: EVE OF JUDGMENT #1, a prelude issue where Gillen will team up with artist Pasqual Ferry to present the first shot of the apocalyptic conflict to come. After that, the saga will be told across six explosive issues in A.X.E.: JUDGMENT DAY, the main event series launching in July, as well as tie-in issues unleashed across the Marvel Universe. An extraordinary odyssey that will leave a profound emotional impact on the Marvel mythology, A.X.E.: JUDGMENT DAY will tie together radical plot developments from the last few years including the X-Men's discovery of immortality, the Eternals' newfound knowledge about their purpose, and the Avengers' assembling a powerful lineup at their base in the body of a fallen Celestial.

The Avengers have become a more powerful global force than ever from their base inside a long-dead Celestial. The X-Men have achieved a form of immortality on their utopian island nation of Krakoa. And the Eternals have begun a new cycle of life as they continue their sworn mission to eliminate the Deviants. But when the Eternals learn that mutantkind itself is a form of excess deviation, a vicious assault on Krakoa ensues – with Earth's Mightiest Heroes trapped in the middle. Years of tension lead to a volcanic eruption as two worlds burn!

"There's a classic metaphor to describe the Marvel Universe – a toybox, which creators take toys out of, play with and put back. I get it, but it's never quite how I've seen it – I think 'play' in another way. I think of a music shop, with all these instruments with their different qualities suggesting different songs, different stories," Gillen explained. "For all the Marvel instruments I've played, I've never written an event. Writing an event is something different. It's not like playing an instrument. It's having all the instruments in the Marvel music shop. That's not like writing a song. That's like writing a symphony. I looked at everything in Eternals and Immortal X-Men and everything else all the X and Avengers writers have done and thought… yeah, this is an event. In fact, an event is the only way to do justice to this."
