New X-Men Series ‘Reign of X’ from Marvel Comics
Marvel Comics announced the timeline for the Reign of X titles, as well as three new X-Men titles that are scheduled to debut following the Hellfire Gala. The release of the X-Men timeline graphic indicates that Marvel is planning to expand the Reign of X event into the summer and fall.
Reign of X Timeline
In a graphic that doubled as a release calendar for the Reign of X event, Marvel revealed the transformation of the X-Men universe is already under way at Marvel Comics with exciting titles like Children of the Atom by Vita Ayala and Bernard Chang, next month’s Way of X by Si Spurrier and Bob Quinn, and May’s X-Corp by Tini Howard and Alberto Foche.
Then, in June, there will be a highly-anticipated franchise-spanning Hellfire Gala, during which fans can expect three new series by X-Men creators such as Leah Williams, Gerry Duggan, Pepe Larraz, Valerio Schiti, and the Head of X himself, writer Jonathan Hickman.
The highly anticipated Hellfire Gala is the mutant world’s answer to the Met Gala, and it will have all the bells and whistles, including exciting “Mutant Fashion” as envisioned by the superstar artist Russell Dauterman.
The highly-anticipated Hellfire Gala stories will be told across 12 issues, offering different perspectives and viewpoints of a single night that will go down in Marvel history. According to Marvel Comics:
As the builders of Krakoa began discussing the gala within the pages of MARAUDERS and beyond, the writers and editors began noodling on what the evening could be. At our X-Retreat just over a year ago in Chicago we had some very large story ideas and production plans that were ratified to give our artists the time they needed to collaborate on the designs. Russell has been an important part of the MARAUDERS team from the beginning, and it only made sense to ask that he lead the way. The writers jammed on very simple prompts for a few of the looks, but by and large each character was a blank slate for Russell and our other artists. Our regular series artists were also asked to contribute around a half dozen high fashions, so if you don’t see your favorite character on a cover, you’ll likely see them at the party.
Spinning out of this event, Marvel announced a “classified” series and two other series shrouded in mystery – but what does that mean for the rest of the Marvel Multiverse?
