Share This Post

Today, fans can check out the covers for X-Men titles on sale in July, the month before Fall of X officially begins. These issues represent the final chapters of Krakoa as we know it before it all comes crashing down in X-Men Hellfire Gala#1!

POGG UR-POGG FOR HIRE! Hired for the dirtiest of jobs, a deadly mercenary comes crashing into the X-Men right at their most vulnerable moment in writer Gerry Duggan and artist Joshua Cassara’s X-Men#24! But not just any mercenary – finally, the breakout fan-favorite from X OF SWORDS, Pogg Ur-Pogg, returns!

Writer Kieron Gillen and artist Lucas Werneck turn the spotlight to Doug Ramsey in Immortal X-Men #13 and gives readers a chance to hear from Krakoa directly. Time is running out. Fall is here. Doug is the voice of Krakoa. It’s time for Krakoa to speak.

In writer Al Ewing and artist Jacopo Camagni’s X-Men Red #13, Genesis once again walks the island she ruled for millennia – with the Annihilation Staff in her hand. But what is in her heart? Is the return of the Mother of Arakko to be celebrated – or feared? As the Fall of X closes in, the Great Ring must decide…or risk their own fall from grace.

Writer Benjamin Percy and artist Juan José Ryp deliver the conclusion to “Weapons of X” in Wolverine #35. WOLVERINE. BEAST. Only one of ’em’s left standing after these CLONE WARS. And it ain’t no clone. The brutal finale of Wolverine’s very own CLONE SAGA sets the stage for his next journey and presages some of the major turning points to come for Krakoa!

Alongside artist Paul Davidson, Benjamin Percy’s redefining work on Beast also continues in X-Force #42 Beast’s epic long game plays out in the only way it could – with Nimrod’s ultimate plan successful, Hank McCoy survives and thrives! But what will this mean for mutantkind, and does X-Force still have time to stop it? Beast’s shocking character arc has been one of the most talked about plot threads of the Krakoan age and fans won’t want to miss the centuries-long culmination of this years-in-the-making journey!
