Mutants may be living on their own island separate from the human race, but that doesn't mean they're immune from getting dragged into Marvel's next line-wide super-mega-crossover event. A press release from the House of Ideas today revealed a four-issue spinoff series titled Empyre: X-Men that will be so convoluted it requires every writer currently working on an X-book to make any sense of it at all.
If you've already made your peace with buying upwards of twenty monthly X-Men titles, get ready to be persuaded to shell out for all of the Empyre tie-ins as well! Empyre: X-Men launches in May, true believers!
Check out the press release and solicits for the first two issues below:
It's going to be a battle so monumental that it'll take the entire writing crew of the X-Men to depict it! The intergalactic visitors coming to Earth in Marvel's 2020 event will be arriving just in time to face off against an army of mutant undead this May in EMPYRE: X-MEN. Don't miss the X-Men's strange return to Genosha in this unpredictable series written by all your favorite current X-Men writers. It all begins in EMPYRE: X-MEN #1 written by Head of X Jonathan Hickman and writer of Excalibur, Tini Howard, and continues in EMPYRE: X-MEN #2 written by Gerry Duggan (Marauders), Benjamin Percy (X-Force, Wolverine), and Leah Williams, writer of the highly anticipated series, X-Factor.
