Marvel is teasing the X-Men: Prelude #1 issue with word that the X-Men are going to face a crisis that will “pit brother against brother, lover against lover, and mutant against mutant.”. The four-issue mini-series is written by Paul Jenkins, with pencils by Robert De La Torre and Laurence Campbell.
“To understand what is coming in the X-Men, you need to understand what has already transpired” says X-Men Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “The history of the X-Men is a huge tapestry and what we’re trying to do here is sum up the necessary info, while filling in blanks and adding new twists that will set fanboys a-Twittering. In this series, Paul lays out the complexities for the fans so they can see the foundation that is beginning to crack.”
X-Men: Prelude #1 has a $2.99 cover price, and arrives in May.
