And it comes with an interconnecting gatefold cover, as seen above. Fabian tells IGN,

IGN Comics: It's interesting how this will be an alternate take on Age of Apocalypse. Why do that instead of returning to the original world?

Nicieza: Because the original world can't really exist as it was within the parameters of how Battleworld is set up in the Secret Wars storyline. I'm also pretty sure the original world ceased to exist during the original series. The original world of Age of Apocalypse was intended to be a fractured reality that had to be "rewoven" back into the normal timeline.

So anyway, the Secret Wars Age of Apocalypse is, in nearly all ways, an even WORSE world than the original – if you happen to be human or an X-Man!

Both humans and the X-Men are in a far more compromised, desperate state of existence and time is running out for both of them.

AGE OF APOCALYPSE #1

Written By FABIAN NICIEZA | Art and Cover by GERARDO SANDOVAL

His war has been won. The few humans left alive are enslaved, the mutant rebellion crushed. EN SABAH NUR, the APOCALYPSE, rules his BATTLEWORLD kingdom without mercy, but the terrorist X-MEN plan to end his reign. Success means finding one very special mutant named CYPHER and unleashing a weapon that will kill Apocalypse — and possibly all mutants, too!

AGE OF APOCALYPSE #2

Written By FABIAN NICIEZA | Art and Cover by GERARDO SANDOVAL

The hunt for CYPHER brings MAGNETO's X-MEN into confrontation with CYCLOPS & HAVOK's ELITE MUTANT FORCE! Meanwhile, ANGEL has to protect a "flatscan" named JEAN GREY and DR. NEMESIS plans to sabotage DARK BEAST's quest to become APOCALYPSE's newest HORSEMAN.
