Experience the Penultimate Month of the X-Men's Revolutionary Krakoa Era

Benjamin Percy's 'Wolverine' run reaches its milestone 50th issue, mutantkind braces for the final battle against Orchis, and more as creators bid farewell to Krakoa.

The Age of Krakoa is going out on a high note!

A period of mutant history unlike any other, the last five years of X-Men comic books has boldly reshaped mutant storytelling forever. While the Krakoan gates might be closing, the spirit and message of Krakoa will live on as the X-Men rise from the ashes this summer with all-new titles!

Just like how it began, the conclusion of the Krakoa is currently being told across two epic interconnected series—FALL OF THE HOUSE OF X and RISE OF THE POWERS OF X. In addition, some of the most pivotal battles, boldest missions, and breathtaking betrayals are taking place in current series like X-MEN, X-MEN FOREVER, CABLE, and INVINCIBLE IRON MAN

Meanwhile, Wolverine has been embroiled in a war against his archenemy in "Sabretooth War." Just in time for the character’s 50th anniversary, this epic storyline and Benjamin Percy’s acclaimed run will reach its riveting—and viciously violent—end in WOLVERINE #50. The over-sized issue will also feature special anniversary stories from legendary Wolverine creators!
