by Olly MacNamee

Another fairly busy week for the X-Men with four new titles available and all out Wednesday 31st August from Marvel:

X-Men #14

Writer: Gerry Duggan
Artist: C.F. Villa
Colours: Matt Milla

“WAS CYCLOPS RIGHT? – Are ANY of the X-Men right? Only one can judge them and the Day of Judgment is here, for good or ill, and the newest team of X-Men must face the truth about themselves and what they have done.”

Knights of X #5

Written by: Tini Howard
Art by: Bob Quinn, Erick Arciniega

“THY CUP RUNNETH OVER! Merlyn has finally tipped into full-blown madness: He’s sent his Furies on a campaign across the realm to burn everything in sight, and only those who swear fealty to the mad king will be spared. But there is still hope! A bargain between a powerful new ally and the Knights of X may just secure the Siege Perilous and the future of Avalon. Elsewhere, Saturnyne forges an alliance with a former enemy. But trust is a fickle thing. Will these new allegiances bring triumph or ruin for the mutants of Otherworld?”

Gambit #2

Written by: Chris Claremont
Art by: Sid Kotian, Espen Grundetjern

“GAMBIT AND ‘RO—ON THE LAM AND OFF THE RAILS! ‘RO is the mutant X-Man Storm, reverted to childhood and trying to retain use of her powers while fighting to find her memories. GAMBIT is the free spirit Remy LeBeau, not yet an X-Man and making his way up and down the Mississippi. What do they have in common? They’re mutants, they’re thieves, and they’re having a blast! But their side mission to escape the SHADOW KING goes off the rails when sudden disaster strikes, and the duo find themselves in the midst of local trouble with ‘Ro’s life—and very essence—in the balance. Can Gambit find the heroic path before it’s too late? Featuring old favorites as well as new friends and enemies!”
