Between all the hustle and bustle of big movies and TV series, I think a lot of us forget that the annual San Diego Comic-Con is…well, a Comic-Con. This weekend past saw plenty of big announcements, but there’s nothing I’m looking forward to now though more than the revival of the children of the atom. Jonathan Hickman is helping to kick off a new era of X-Men this week with House of X, but it won’t be the only series bearing the icon of Charles Xavier and his dream for a better tomorrow.

Here’s a quick look at what’s on the horizon:

X-MEN #1 – October

  • Written by JONATHAN HICKMAN
  • Penciled by LEINIL FRANCIS YU
  • Cover by LEINIL FRANCIS YU

A NEW ERA DAWNS FOR THE X-MEN!

The X-Men find themselves in a whole new world of possibility… and things have never been better! Jonathan Hickman (HOUSE OF X, POWERS OF X, SECRET WARS) and superstar artist Leinil Yu (NEW AVENGERS, CAPTAIN AMERICA) reveal the saga of Cyclops and his hand-picked squad of mutant powerhouses!

EXCALIBUR #1 – October

  • Written by TINI HOWARD
  • Penciled by MARCUS TO
  • Cover by MAHMUD ASRAR

A NEW DAY IS FORGED!

Mutantkind has always been special…as has their relationship with the world—or WORLDS—around them. As this new era dawns, a new connection forms between mutants and the magic of the world… and that of Otherworld! Can the new Captain Britain forge a new way through the chaos with her companions Rogue, Gambit, Jubilee, Rictor…and Apocalypse?!?

MARAUDERS #1 – October

  • Written by GERRY DUGGAN
  • Penciled by MATTEO LOLLI
  • Cover by RUSSEL DAUTERMAN

THE X-MEN SAIL AT DAWN!

Even in this glorious new dawn, Mutantkind faces hardships and oppression from their human counterparts. Led by Captain Kate Pryde and funded by Emma Frost and the Hellfire Trading Company, Marauders Storm, Pyro, Bishop and Iceman sail the seas of the world to protect those hated and feared!

NEW MUTANTS #1 – November

  • Issue 1 Written by JONATHAN HICKMAN & ED BRISSON
  • Issue 2 Written by JONATHAN HICKMAN
  • Penciled by ROD REIS
  • Cover by ROD REIS

THE NEXT GENERATION CLAIMS THE FUTURE!

The classic New Mutants (Sunspot, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Karma, Magik, and Cypher) get together with a few new friends (Chamber, Mondo) to seek out their missing member and share the good news… a mission that takes them into space alongside the Starjammers!

FALLEN ANGELS #1 – November

  • Written by BRYAN EDWARD HILL
  • Penciled by SZYMON KUDRANSKI
  • Cover by ASHLEY WITTER

NOT ALL BELONG IN PARADISE!

Psylocke finds herself in this new world of Mutantkind unsure of her place in it… but when a face from her past returns only to be killed, she seeks help from others who feel similar to get vengeance. Cable and X-23 join Kwannon for a personal mission that could jeopardize all Mutantkind!

X-FORCE #1 – November

  • Written by BENJAMIN PERCY
  • Penciled by JOSHUA CASSARA
  • Cover by DUSTIN WEAVER

THE COST OF THE FUTURE ISN’T CHEAP.

X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world—one half intelligence branch, one half special ops. Beast, Jean Grey and Sage on one side, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino on the other. In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force. We’re not there… yet.

The future looks bright indeed. The new X-era kicks off later this week in House of X, and will feature the rise of mutantkind once again as the X-Men step back into the mainstream spotlight. Which is totes better than that whole Inhumans debacle that turned out to be a flash in the pan. Now onto the best comic book covers of the week!
