HOUSE OF X #1 delivers the biggest X-MEN title since the Chris Claremont / Jim Lee launch of the early ’90s — do NOT miss this! Writer Jonathan Hickman weaves pure wonder with this one!

Join us on Tuesday night 7/23/19 for our midnight release!

This is IT, Third Eye Faithful! The X-Men are about to reclaim their place as the comic everyone is talking about, and it’s all because of the incredible take that superstar Jonathan Hickman (Secret Wars, SHIELD, East of West, Black Monday Murders) is bringing to the table with HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X!

Not since the era of Claremont / Lee or Morrison / Quitely, have we been this excited about an X-MEN initiative, and we’re telling ya now: it lives up to the hype!

We have to tell you: EVERYTHING about the HOUSE OF X / POWER OF X initiative is pure comic book goodness at its finest — like, this is some of the most exciting stuff we’ve seen hitting the world of both Marvel and DC in forever, and it lives up to the hype in every way possible!

First off — this is an initiative that’s not just being written by Jonathan Hickman, but the entire direction of mutants in the Marvel Universe as a whole, is being headed up by the one and only Hickman, the man who gave you SECRET WARS, AVENGERS TIME RUNS OUT, EAST OF WEST, and so much more!

Secondly, it’s THE X-MEN! Seriously: who doesn’t love a good X-MEN story? C’mon: many of us, and many of you, came into comics because of the X-MEN, and to see them returning back to the top level of the Marvel Universe again is a pretty big deal.

The ideas being put together in HOUSE OF X and POWER OF X are on the same wave length, and even beyond, of classic runs like Joss Whedon and Grant Morrison — but, they’re so much more than that. In fact, there hasn’t been a sense of epic world-building and bigger-than-life UNCANNY comic book energy in the X-Men like this since that iconic X-MEN #1 from Chris Claremont and Jim Lee many years back!

This is the definition of history-making comics, Third Eye Faithful, and we’re so darn excited to share these moments with you as they happen!

So, where do things begin? The fun starts in HOUSE OF X #1, where we see how since the release of Uncanny X-Men #1, there have been four seminal moments in the history of the X-Men. Giant-Sized X-Men. X-Men. Age of Apocalypse. New X-Men.

Four iconic series that introduced a new era for Marvel’s mutants and revolutionized the X-Men.

In House of X, Charles Xavier reveals his master plan for mutantkind…one that will bring mutants out of the shadow of mankind and into the light once more.

Make sure join us on Tuesday night 7/23/19 for our HOUSE OF X #1 Midnight Release and get the exclusive HOUSE OF X #1 Midnight Variant for normal cover price!

Third Eye Faithful – HOUSE OF X is such a big deal, that we had to put together a very special way to celebrate, and as such, we’re hosting a MIDNIGHT release for issue #1, so you can be among the first to get your hands on HOUSE OF X #1!

In addition, as an extra bonus for you night owls who decide to come out and be a part of our HOUSE OF X fun, we’ll have a special LAUNCH PARTY variant of issue #1 that you can scoop for normal cover price at our big midnight release!
