Beginning: Wednesday, July 24th
continuing every week through September
There are several franchise changing events in the history of the X-Men.
Giant Size X-Men #1
The Dark Phoenix Saga
These stories changed not just the X-Men, but also comics forever! At some point, one of these stories touched you, made you an X-Men fan, and fired up your imagination. You may also have discovered the X-Men through toys or the 1990s animated series or the movies. No matter how you got there, you know what this franchise is like when it’s at it’s best. It’s the backbone of the comic industry and it should be the best comics you read every month.
Now it’s time for the next chapter. We hear you when you say you’ve left the comics behind you. We share your disappointment over storylines that did not resolve or outcomes you did not like or creative directions that did not engage you. Above all, we completely understand when you say you don’t trust another relaunch after so so many.
For more than a quarter century, Paradox has prided itself at being the leader in bringing you the best comics and we’ve always tried to be honest with you. We’ve told you when we don’t like the comics out there and that has earned us your trust. When we are excited, when we do love something, we believe you’ll listen. This is one of those times.
More than a year ago, Jonathan Hickman came to Marvel with an idea about the X-Men. Together, over that year, they have built it. Hickman has researched the psychology of the X-Men throughout the decades. He has studied the franchise from top to bottom. He has convinced Marvel to trust him once again to tell an unforgettable story. This could have only happened at the right time, once Marvel and Disney had the X-Men movie rights back, and that time is now. We truly believe that the commitment that Marvel is making is for the right reasons and being handled in the right way. They have cleared the slate of all existing mutant comics. They have planned this for a year. They have put one of the industry’s biggest talents behind it. We also love something specific about their marketing. They do not promise that the books will be changed forever. They actually say that this launch will be the direction of the books for years to come. That is a refreshing and meaningful commitment rather than the usual hyperbole.
So now we want you to take a chance with us. Your commitment to see whether you want to follow the X-Men again is 12 issues long. Hickman’s run begins with two mini series both 6 issues. The books intertwine with each other, releasing every other week for 12 weeks and telling a complete story.
Here’s how’s you can start the adventure all over again right here at Paradox:
