Marvel is proud to announce that newly-exclusive writer Kieron Gillen (THOR, GENERATION HOPE) will join the Eisner-winning Matt Fraction on UNCANNY X-MEN! Beginning with UNCANNY X-MEN #531, Fraction and Gillen pit the X-Men against what may be their greatest threat yet: he loss of their powers at the hands of the Sublime Corporation, as the malevolent force puts into action its master plan!
"For the last 30 years, UNCANNY X-MEN has been super hero comics' truest reflection of the age. That's what I have to live up to and take it into the future, trying to write the definitive twenty-teen take on the X-Men," explains Gillen. "Any less is underselling what the book deserves. Co-writing with Matt seems a worryingly natural development, as we were friends, then were working together creating the five lights for GENERATION HOPE. The exclusive is the proverbial gravy. In the words of Ms. Knowles:' They liked it. They put a ring on it.'"
Fraction adds, "As a writer? This feels like Kieron and I have already been working on the book for several months anyway, what with the ‘Five Lights' story and cueing up what he needed for GENERATION HOPE, so this is a perfectly natural extension of that. As a reader? There's literally no one else in the world I want to read writing X-Men more than Kieron. He's great. He's dangerously great. And he's dying...Dying to entertain you."
A bold new era for the X-Men begins in December as Matt Fraction and Kieron Gillen join forces in UNCANNY X-MEN #531!
