At last year’s gala, mutants changed the face of the solar system, terraforming Mars and claiming it for mutant-kind. This year will continue the tradition with more game-changing developments, the exciting reveal of the new X-Men lineup, direct lead-ins to the events of A.X.E.: JUDGMENT DAY, and more, all in one giant-sized issue! The future of mutant-kind as we know it begins here! Written by current X-Men writer Gerry Duggan and featuring artwork by Kris Anka, Russell Dauterman, Matteo Lolli, and C.F. Villa. X-MEN: HELLFIRE GALA #1 will also boast stunning covers by the superstar artists Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, Adam Hughes, Arthur Adams, Carlos Gómez, and Nick Dragotta.
For the full scope of the event, fans should pick up upcoming issues of IMMORTAL X-MEN and X-MEN. In Kieron Gillen’s IMMORTAL X-MEN #4, Emma Frost will stop at nothing to make sure the Hellfire Gala is a night no one in the Marvel Universe will soon forget. And in Gerry Duggan and Pepe Larraz’s X-MEN #12, the grand climax of the book’s first epic year, the current X-Men team goes out in style, and secrets are revealed that guarantee the Hellfire Gala will be overflowing with drama.
And if you’re looking for the afterparty, swing over to Zeb Wells and AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #9 this August. Something happens at the Gala that sends Spider-Man and Wolverine on a dangerous mission all over creation! That’s right — the best duo in comics is back, but who are they fighting, and what (or who) are they fighting for? Pick up X-MEN: HELLFIRE GALA #1 to find out!
