June X-Men Solicits: Emma Frost Does Marilyn, A Knight of X WILL DIE

To promote a second Hellfire Gala and the next Marvel super-mega-crossover event, Emma Frost recreates Marilyn Monroe's iconic Playboy spread, though with red satin sheets strategically covering everything up. This isn't a Marvel Max title, after all. Marvel has released the full solicits for X-Men comics shipping in June, bolstering the few released earlier this week as part of the Judgment Day super-mega-crossover event solicits. Another notable bit of news: someone in Knights of X will kick the bucket in June… and since it happens in Otherworld, this time, death may actually matter! Well, on the level it does in non-X-Men comics. Which is still not a lot. But more than in the current X-books.

Check out the solicits below:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
