We knew that “X of Swords” the upcoming X-Men crossover was going to be big. The event touches upon every X title and includes a who’s who of creators. Marvel has been teasing it for some time, saying the dark history of Arakko will soon be revealed with the fate of mutantkind at stake. The publisher has revealed some impressive key art for the event from artist Pepe Larraz and colorist David Curiel. Excuse me for a moment as I pick my jaw up from the floor.
“I’m consistently thrilled to see X-Men characters with swords and goblets, alongside dragons and things,” Excalibur and X of Swords: Creation writer Tini Howard told SYFY Wire in a recent interview. “It’s really unexpected, but so fun. These are fantastic heroes and they do fantastic things. Yes, it is super rad to see the X-Men with swords. Thank you all for understanding that.”
The epic action begins in X of Swords: Creation #1 from writers Jonathan Hickman and Tini Howard and artist Pepe Larraz. It’s set for release on September 23rd, 2020.
