“Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the iconic team, creator Rob Liefeld returns to the characters he introduced three decades ago to tell a brand-new adventure featuring these hard-hitting heroes! In this special issue, the man called Cable assembles the combined might of five different X-Force squadrons, each gathered across various points in time for one final mission: to defeat Stryfe once and for all—AT ALL COSTS! Sacrifices, betrayals and revelations await as X-Force attempts their most daring assault ever!”

“KRAKOA COMPROMISED! You’ve seen some action in Benjamin Percy’s WOLVERINE, but never quite like this! It’s a life-or-death protection mission as WOLVERINE goes on the run with his friend C.I.A. Agent Jeff Bannister when a secret surveillance device is discovered on Krakoa—and its owners are willing to kill to get it back! But who would go so far as to betray the mutants? Featuring the return of some unexpected adversaries!”
I can’t think of a bigger week for X-Men fans than this one. Well, not since the X-Men gala, that is. Which titles will you be picking up fro your local comic book store?
