Marvel announce “Dawn of X” trade coming next year
I think it’s safe to say that it’s no exaggeration that Jonathan Hickman’s groundbreaking House of X and Powers of X have changed and revolutionized the X-Men for years to come. The story was dense yet engaging, taking familiar (and occasionally unfamiliar) concepts dealing with Marvel’s merry mutants and putting a fresh spin on them. Better still, nothing felt contrived; rather, as drastic and bold as some of Hickman’s choices were, they made sense with the story being told.
Now that House and Powers have concluded, the Dawn of X has come with several brand new X-Men books hitting the shelves and continuing the story. Last week’s X-Men #1 was absolutely phenomenal, this week’s Marauders looks like a ton of fun (pirate Kitty Pryde!), and that’s just the first two of, like, eight* books that will be dropping soon. To reinforce how important this “Dawn” actually is, Marvel have announced a trade paperback collecting each of the first issues of this initiative, so you can get your piratey X-Men right alongside your special-ops X-Men, all in one volume. Check out the details below.
