Coming in May... 'Giant Size X-Men: Fantomex' #1

Jonathan Hickman and 'New Mutants' artist Rod Reis reunite for the new one-shot!

A bred killer who chose the life of a gentleman super-thief, Fantomex has always defied expectations... For example, who would expect him to break into the World, the artificial realm of his creation? And then again? And then…again?

The mighty mag joins previously announced GIANT-SIZE X-MEN one-shots JEAN GREY AND EMMA FROST, NIGHTCRAWLER, and MAGNETO in a lineup of large-scale, standalone stories specifically designed to highlight some of the industry's finest artistic talents. And as Reis detailed to The A.V. Club, the NEW MUTANTS (2019) artist is delighting in the opportunity to embrace the unique kind of story that Fantomex calls for. “As Jonathan Hickman and I were talking about characters for this GIANT-SIZE X-MEN issue," he notes, "I said I was looking for crazy and weird characters that would allow me to play with panel layouts and do crazy stuff. So we decided that Fantomex would be the perfect choice."
