House Of X: Wake Yourselves Up With Previews Of All This Week’s ‘X-Men’ Titles

by Olly MacNamee

Quite a busy week for the X-Men this with four titles hitting stores Wednesday 10th February, 2021 from Marvel. We’ve got S.W.O.R.D. #3, Excalibur #18 (probably my favourite ‘House of X’ title after X-Men), X-Force #17 and a rather meaty preview for Wolverine Black, White and Blood #4 (of 5).

Let’s take then in that order and start with a look at S.W.O.R.D. #3 by Al Ewing and a who; host of artists:

“Take a trip with the Everywhere Man! The Void-God has overtaken the Earth. Top-level mutants have been assimilated. Protocol V is in effect. But space is a big place… and a lot of things happen there at once. Walk a mile in the Manifold’s shoes, as S.W.O.R.D.’s Quintician takes a multi-artist journey across the universe and back… and comes face to face with S.W.O.R.D.’s deadliest enemy.”

“The best there us by the best there are! The groundbreaking series continues! Thrill to the Marvel Comics debut of Oscar winner JOHN RIDLEY (12 Years a Slave, The American Way) as he and JORGE FORNÉS bring LOGAN to Japan, where he will question his honor as he clashes blades with the SILVER SAMURAI! Then, it’s back to his X-FORCE days with JED MacKAY and JESÚS SAIZ, as WOLVERINE must stop A.I.M.’s plot for the red planet! And, nothing can prepare you for the unstoppable team-up of DONNY CATES and CHRIS BACHALO as Wolverine has a run-in with…COSMIC GHOST RIDER?!”
