Rodrigo: Uncanny X-Men #500
“SFX”, PART 1!
Sentinels? What? And Magneto? And is that the Master Mold? What the hell is going on in San Francisco now that the Uncanny X-Men have relocated there? They’ve got a new Headquarters and a new status quo as the gauntlet is thrown for a new era of mutantkind. It’s all here in the double-sized anniversary issue that sets up the plotlines that will be developed over the next year in UNCANNY. And it’s all brought to you by the hot writing team of Ed Brubaker & Matt Fraction (Immortal Iron Fist) and fan favorite artists Greg Land (ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR, X-MEN: FREE COMIC BOOK DAY) and Terry Dodson (SPIDER-MAN/BLACK CAT, Wonder Woman). New creators, new home. The future begins now.

Las Vegas, 1959. WWII veteran Joe Halliday is enjoying the good life – running Tiki Joe’s Restaurant, courting a beautiful girl, and making time with stead-fast friends – that is, until the local mob moves in with demands for protection money. When the police are unable to help, Joe calls in a few old army friends, and together they decide to pay the mob off… in lead! Tiki Joe is an Ocean’s Eleven-style mystery set in Las Vegas – part murder mystery, part hard-boiled thriller by newcomer Mark Murphy.
