Bleeding Cool has been a major fan of Pepe Larraz's work for a few years now, drawing books like Avengers and relaunching X-Men with Jonathan Hickman to great effect. And he's now the artist on the new X-Men #1, relaunching from Marvel Comics in July, written by Gerry Duggan. And we have a first look at some of his uncoloured, unlettered pages from X-Men #1… with rogue fighting a tentacled xenomorph of sorts… and taking in the local architecture.
A look at the new X-Men in action with Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Sunfire, Wolverine, Polaris and Synch – Rogue already having been punched through buildings.
It certainly is a big bugger, with Rogue forced to play catch.
But Polaris seems to be earning her spot, wrapping the creature in the buildings around them.
But it looks like there may be a psychic assault as well – hang on, a massive alien landing on Manhattan and psychically assaulting its citizens? Is Gerry Duggan and Pepe Larraz's X-Men #1 the new Watchmen?

THESE X-MEN ARE… FEARLESS!
The heroes of Krakoa are here to save the planet! Things might be complicated between the nation of Krakoa and the rest of the world, but to the X-MEN, things are simple – you do what's right, you protect those who need protecting and you save the world we all share. Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Sunfire, Rogue, Wolverine, Synch and Polaris are the chosen champions of mutantkind, and they will not shrink from any battle for their home planet. Writer Gerry Duggan (MARAUDERS, DEADPOOL, UNCANNY AVENGERS) reteams with superstar artist Pepe Larraz (HOUSE OF X, X OF SWORDS, UNCANNY AVENGERS) to chart the course of the X-Men in a world of the Reign of X!
