EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN #8
JEFF LEMIRE (W) • HUMBERTO RAMOS (A/C)
"APOCALYPSE WARS" STARTS NOW!
Mutantkind is an endangered species once more. But what better way to ensure your people see the future…than to skip ahead right to it? As the mutant race's last hope is jettisoned into the time stream, the Extraordinary X-Men make a startling discovery: the fate of their kind is about to fall into the hands of one of their most formidable adversaries — the immortal APOCALYPSE. Now, the X-Men race into a perilous future, desperate to reclaim what was taken from them…and completely unaware of the horrors that await them.

UPDATE: And from CBR here's the Uncanny X-Men cover also using the same cover reference. Will Newsarama have one for All-New X-Men?
