Hello there my friends in comic book collecting land, what an exciting time it is to be a fan of this sort of stuff. We’re already in July which means the year is fleeting by us at a superfast pace but that is okay by me with this particular month since it means we only have about a week until the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” film opens up in theaters around the world. Sony Pictures and Marvel had a world premiere the other night but sadly our outlet was not a part of the celebration. Now before I begin with this month’s first issue offerings, please remember that this month, numerous titles will feature “X-Men Trading Card” cover variants (see them all HERE) and the Spider-Man themed “True Believers” titles are also available while supplies last (see the rundown of those issues HERE). Now let’s suit up shall we……as usual the press copy and images from directly from the source but my editorial soap boxing at the close is all me 🙂
ASTONISHING X-MEN #1: ONLY THE X-MEN CAN SAVE US! An ancient evil is attacking the world’s most powerful minds. It will have them by the time you finish this sentence, and a moment later, it will have us all. A band of X-MEN discovers the truth behind the threat, but there is no time left. PSYLOCKE, OLD MAN LOGAN, BISHOP, ARCHANGEL, FANTOMEX, ROGUE and GAMBIT will attempt to save a world that hates and fears them. Why? BECAUSE THEY ARE THE X-MEN.
From blockbuster writer CHARLES SOULE and joined by a roster of superstar artists beginning with JIM CHEUNG. ASTONISHING X-MEN. It’s the X-book you need.
