SDCC 19: Marvel set to blast out 6 new X-titles this fall

Spinning out of this summer’s X mini-series’, Marvel will release a deluge of new X-Men titles this fall. That’ll include X-Force, New Mutants and more.

X-plosion

From a relative drought over the last decade or so, to an absolute flood, Marvel wasn’t kidding when they said they’d be bringing back the X-Men in a big way. Announced at Comic Con this past weekend, there will be a total of 6 new X-titles out this fall.

“House of X and Powers of X lay the groundwork for a whole new world of X-Men stories for years to come, and the Dawn of X books are the promise of that new world come to life,” said X-Men Senior Editor Jordan D. White. “They are the start of the new era that will change how we think of the X-Men and the kinds of stories we tell with them. It all begins here.”

The names are very familiar. Though there’s no X-Factor, pretty much every other “X-team” from Marvel’s history will be represented in this relaunch. Add to that some new teams never before seen, and you have one hell of a big lineup, even though some sound more interesting than others.

Overall, the creative teams working on these books are solid to great too. I say this reluctantly, but it might be time for fans to get engaged again.

Here’s what’s coming this October, in an event Marvel is calling the Dawn of X:
