The Third Eye Guide to Dawn of X – the next steps after House of X!
Published September 13th, 2019
DAWN OF X begins a new era following on the heels of HOUSE OF X & POWERS OF X with 6 new ongoing series under superstar Jonathan Hickman!
Quite possibly, one of the most exciting things we’ve seen to come down the pipeline for Marvel in the last decade, has been HOUSE OF X & POWERS OF X!
These two huge series have delivered some of the most exciting, and invigorating takes on Marvel’s merry mutants that we’ve seen in decades!
And, now, as HOUSE OF X & POWERS OF X near their conclusions in their respective issue #6s, the road to what lays ahead for the X-Men is clear: the DAWN OF X!
That’s right: Jonathan Hickman’s far from done with his take on the world of the X-MEN, and is starting off the first season of X-Awesomeness right with DAWN OF X this Fall!
For those of you not yet hip to why the HOUSE OF X / POWERS OF X stuff has been so freakin’ cool — click here to get the full scoop on it with our THIRD EYE GUIDE TO HOUSE OF X / POWERS OF X!
What’s the scoop on DAWN OF X?
HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X reinvented and reimagined just what the X-MEN meant to the Marvel Universe, and the DAWN OF X initiative? This is where Hickman takes the groundwork he’s built in those two mini-series, and begins taking us into the biggest golden age of X-Men comics yet!
DAWN OF X is the official banner that covers 6 all new ongoing series, two of which directly written by Hickman, and all 6 directly overseen and guided by Hickman, that take the world of the X-MEN and make it the most exciting it’s been since the days of Claremont and Lee!
We’ve put together this Third Eye Guide to help dig into why each book is going to be awesome, as well as to help show you a few of our options here at Third Eye to collect the entire DAWN OF X line-up and save a few bucks in the process!
DAWN OF X – X-MEN #1: The flagship of the DAWN OF X line-up!
The first book of the line, and the flagship of the new X-MEN series, is X-MEN, which kicks off with X-MEN #1 on 10/16/19.
Featuring the superstar dream team of Jonathan Hickman & Leinil Yu – this is a MUST-READ, Third Eye Faithful, and will be the biggest X-Men since Claremont and Jim Lee’s X-MEN #1 way back in the ’90s!
What’s the scoop on it?
The X-Men find themselves in a whole new world of possibility… and things have never been better! Jonathan Hickman (HOUSE OF X, POWERS OF X, SECRET WARS) and superstar artist Leinil Yu (NEW AVENGERS, CAPTAIN AMERICA) reveal the saga of Cyclops and his hand-picked squad of mutant powerhouses!
X-Men #1 drops on 10/16/19!
MARAUDERS: The book that breaks all the rules & then some!
In the spirit of X-Men classics, like INFERNO, MUTANT MASSACRE, and many more, the Marauders brings a cutting edge, true to the spirit but looking ahead, approach to the X-MEN, and we’re loving every second of it!
Even in this glorious new dawn, Mutantkind faces hardships and oppression from their human counterparts.
Led by Captain Kate Pryde and funded by Emma Frost and the Hellfire Trading Company, Marauders Storm, Pyro, Bishop and Iceman sail the seas of the world to protect those hated and feared!
Written by SAVAGE AVENGERS superstar Gerry Duggan – this is a MUST-READ!
Marauders #1 drops on 10/23/19!
EXCALIBUR: The X-Book that tackles the fantastic & the future!
EXCALIBUR back in the day was the X-Title that was the home of a unique kind of X-Men storytelling that really focused on character relationships, and fantastic almost fantasy-style storytelling in terms of the worlds that the characters would venture into.
Hickman is bringing the world of the X-Men back to a lot of that bigger-than-life yet heartfelt storytelling alongside writer Tini Howard in this new series, and we are STOKED!
In EXCALIBUR, the Otherworld is rocked by war!
It is a new era for mutantkind as a new Captain Britain holds the amulet, fighting for the Kingdom of Avalon with her Excalibur at her side – Rogue, Gambit, Rictor, Jubilee…and Apocalypse.
Excalibur #1 releases on 10/30/19!
NEW MUTANTS #1 – One of the DAWN OF X titles we’re most excited about!
This is the one of the ones we’re most stoked for, because it takes one of our favorite runs of all-time, which is the early NEW MUTANTS stuff, and pulls the spirit and energy from that kind of X-Storytelling and channels it into the awesomeness that Hickman is doing!
In NEW MUTANTS, THE NEW GENERATION CLAIMS THE DAWN!
The classic New Mutants (Sunspot, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Karma, Magik, and Cypher) get together with a few new friends (Chamber, Mondo) to seek out their missing member and share the good news… a mission that takes them into space alongside the Starjammers!
NEW MUTANTS #1 is in stores 11/6/19!
X-FORCE #1 – The Black Ops of the X-Men world gets their own series!
How can you go wrong with a team that has the trio of BEAST, WOLVERINE, and COLOSSUS as their leadership? YOU CAN’T!
Seriously tho: X-FORCE looks so freakin’ COOL!
THE HIGH PRICE OF A NEW DAWN!
X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world-one half intelligence branch, one half special ops. Beast, Jean Grey and Sage on one side, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino on the other. In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force.
We’re not there…yet.
FALLEN ANGELS – PSYLOCKE. X-23. CABLE. What more could you ask for? This one looks rad as all get out!
PSYLOCKE. X-23. CABLE. Three of our favorite characters — and in one book? You know this one is gonna be awesome!
Psylocke finds herself in this new world of Mutantkind unsure of her place in it… but when a face from her past returns only to be killed, she seeks help from others who feel similar to get vengeance.
Cable and X-23 join Kwannon for a personal mission that could jeopardize all Mutantkind!
