POWERS OF X #1 delivers the companion series to HOUSE OF X, as the most exciting era of the X-MEN since the Claremont / Lee era continues!!

The awesomeness that began with HOUSE OF X continues in POWERS OF X this Wednesday!

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, this week, the awesomeness that began with HOUSE OF X continues in POWERS OF X #1, the companion series to HOUSE OF X from Jonathan Hickman, and it’s every bit as awesome as HOUSE OF X!

in POWER OF X, superstar writer Jonathan Hickman (INFINTY, NEW AVENGERS, FF) continues his revolutionary new direction for the X-Men. Intertwining with HOUSE OF X, POWERS OF X reveals the secret past, present  and  future of mutantkind, changing the way you look at every X-Men story before and after.

HOUSE OF X / POWER OF X are set to change the entire landscape of the X-MEN in the Marvel U, and if you haven’t read the X-Titles in quite sometime: this is the place to get back on board!

We’ve been lucky enough to read both issue #1s, and while we can’t disclose what goes down — we can tell you right now: iconic characters, the X-Men you care about, the bad guys you love to see in action, the Marvel Universe and the X-Men interacting in a way that’s downright fascinating, and a take on the X-Men that’s so fresh — you’ll never see it coming!

Need HOUSE OF X 1? We’ve still got copies in stock to hook you up!

Make sure to visit us on Wednesday 7/31/19 to get first crack at all those awesome POWERS OF X #1 variants!

With something as big as the X-MEN revival that’s happening now, Marvel has hooked us up with a TON of great alternate covers to the issue #1s to make sure you can celebrate this launch in style!

With POWERS OF X, we’ll have all the killer variant covers available on day 1 of release (and maybe some beyond that too, but quantities are limited, so make sure to come see us and get yours, or contact us about reserving yours!) — and we know you’re gonna want these!

We’re HUGE fans of the DARK HORSE horror series, HARROW COUNTY, and when we saw that the team of Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook would be reuniting for a whole new horror spin — we had to give it a big shout out!

Roman Black is the moribund patriarch of a family of powerful sorcerers.

As his wicked and corrupt children fight over who will take the reins of Manor Black and become representative of the black arts, Roman adopts a young mage whom he gifts his powers to with the hope that someone good will take his place against the evil forces out to bring down his family and legacy.
