X-Men Creators Present the Final 11 Covers for 'X of Swords'

Beginning in September, the X-Men clash with mysterious new foes in 'X of Swords'!

X OF SWORDS, the massive X-Men crossover tying into each and every X-Men title, kicks off next month. By November, this sprawling story will reach a senses-shattering conclusion...and the covers for these exciting final chapters were unveiled today!

X OF SWORDS will continue writer Jonathan Hickman’s grand vision for the X-Men which began last year in the hit series HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X. Hickman and EXCALIBUR writer Tini Howard join every other current X-Men writer—Gerry Duggan, Benjamin Percy, Ed Brisson, Zeb Wells, Leah Williams, and Vita Ayala—to deliver the next great X-Men milestone. Featuring breathtaking art by Leinil Francis Yu, Carmen Carnero, Pepe Larraz, Stefano Caselli, Joshua Cassara, Mahmud Asrar, Phil Noto, and more, X OF SWORDS will be an unforgettable saga that will stand alongside classic crossovers like THE MUTANT MASSACRE, AGE OF APOCALYPSE, and MESSIAH COMPLEX in X-Men history.
