Marvel has announced that Eisner Award-nominated writer Jeff Lemire (All-New Hawkeye, Sweet Tooth) is to join chart-topping artist Humberto Ramos (Amazing Spider-Man) for the flagship X-Men title of the post-Secret Wars Marvel Universe with an ‘All New, All Different’ series entitled Extraordinary X-Men.
“The chance to write the flagship X-Men book is a once in a lifetime opportunity,” says Lemire. “It’s both exhilarating and somewhat intimidating. The X-Men have a staggering legacy and an extremely devoted fan base, so this is not an assignment I am taking lightly. I’ve poured everything I have into making this book something special. I don’t want to write just another X-Men run. I want the work Humberto and I do to stand up with the truly great X-Men runs. ”
Eight months have passed. The X-Men are in dire straits. A cataclysmic event that has altered the destinies of both Mutant and Inhuman. Many of the X-Men have gone missing – including their wayward leader Scott Summers. It will take the remaining X-Men to forge mutantkind into something stronger. Something…extraordinary! Now – Storm, Colossus, Magik, Nightcrawler, Iceman, Jean Grey and Old Man Logan will lead mutantkind headfirst into tomorrow.
Welcome to the new Marvel Universe, X-Men – hope you survive the experience! It all starts this fall as Lemire and Ramos bring you EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN #1!
