Marvel has announced that the next tie-in issues to the Fear Itself event will be Uncanny X-Men #540 and #541 by Kieron Gillen and Greg Land.
“After the tight, claustrophobic Breaking Point, I wanted something that embraced the epic scale inherent in the modern/mythological world war of Fear Itself. It’s a disaster movie where the natural threat is the supernatural powerhouse,” explains writer Kieron Gillen. “The whole story’s built like a bomb, with each step of the Serpent’s Worthy is like another tick on the clock. “What can stop the Worthy?” is the question, and as the answer starts to become apparent, that’s when the terror starts to bite. A city, waiting to be hit, with nothing they can do to stop it.”
