Ah, surprise? Marvel recently announced at SDCC ’18 that it will be relaunching Uncanny X-Men with a 10-part story titled, Disassembled (seems more like an overused name for a different Marvel team book). At any rate, I’m happy that Uncanny X-Men is returning as a series.
“Welcome to the X-Men, hope you survive the experience!”
Here’s the official announcement:
Writers Ed Brisson, Kelly Thompson, and Matthew Rosenberg join forces with artistic all-stars!
Last month at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Comics announced that UNCANNY X-MEN would return this fall. Today, the creative team was officially announced as well as an official release date for UNCANNY X-MEN #1 — Wednesday, November 14. The new ongoing series is jam-packed with X-talent — all the writers and artists have previously worked on X-Men characters and stories and will be teaming up for more mutant mayhem!
UNCANNY X-MEN will launch with a 10-part weekly epic called “Disassembled.” Where the series goes from there depends on who is left standing! In this “epic tale of mystery and tragic disappearance,” every remaining mutant on the planet will come together in “an adventure so Earth-shattering, it could very well be the X-Men’s FINAL mission!” With stakes this high, it will take an extraordinary team to tell this story.
Writers Ed Brisson (EXTERMINATION), Kelly Thompson (MR. AND MRS. X), and Matthew Rosenberg (PHOENIX RESURRECTION, ASTONISHING X-MEN) will join the equally X-perienced artistic team of Mahmud Asrar (X-MEN RED), R.B. Silva (X-MEN BLUE), Yildiray Cinar (WEAPON X), and Pere Perez (ROGUE AND GAMBIT). Leinil Frances Yu will provide artwork for the covers.
