Knights Of X Ends With #5, But Will Return, In Some Form

Writer Tini Howard has written in her Substack on the future of the X-Men comic book Knights Of X written by her and drawn by Bob Quinn, which has had no solicitations listed since Knights Of X #5 – and the trade paperback of the first five issues having no Volume number.

You're all loving the book and I'm loving that you're loving it. I know some people are upset about not seeing a continuation in PREVIEWS, and I get it! This industry is crazy and no one tells anyone anything! So I'll tell you – Knights #5 is the last issue of that book, but we're not done. We're about to take Betsy on maybe her greatest ride yet, and some very special people close to her are coming along too – but to do it the way we wanted involved a big ol' exciting pivot. Our Captain Britain isn't going away, and I'm not done telling stories with her, and thankfully…Betsy and I seem to be permitted to still do so. We're happy about it, thanks for coming. Sorry for the stress. Issue #4 is big, you'll love it, and Bob just turned in what might be the Spread of his Career for issue #5. We love this book.

Could it be Captain Britain? Excalibur? STRIKE? Sir James Jaspers And The Furies? Once And Future? Maybe we'll find out in upcoming Marvel solicitations.

THY CUP RUNNETH OVER!
Merlyn has finally tipped into full-blown madness: He's sent his Furies on a campaign across the realm to burn everything in sight, and only those who swear fealty to the mad king will be spared. But there is still hope! A bargain between a powerful new ally and the Knights of X may just secure the Siege Perilous and the future of Avalon. Elsewhere, Saturnyne forges an alliance with a former enemy. But trust is a fickle thing. Will these new allegiances bring triumph or ruin for the mutants of Otherworld?
