MARVEL ANNOUNCES KIERON GILLEN AS NEW WRITER OF UNCANNY X-MEN

This April, red-hot writer Kieron Gillen (Thor, Generation Hope) kicks off an all-new era for the X-Men as the new writer of Uncanny X-Men! Things kick off in Uncanny X-Men #534.1, as Gillen teams up with superstar artist Carlos Pacheco for a special point one issue, a great jumping on point for new readers! When the public finds out that the former Mutant Menace, Magneto, is not only sitting off the coast of San Francisco, but an X-Man – there will be some explaining to do. Then, fan-favorite artist Terry Dodson joins Gillen for an all new explosive arc, beginning inUncanny X-Men #535! Watch as Gillen and Dodson pit the X-Men against a force they thought they would never see again…inhabitants from BREAKWORLD! With a mission that will strike the lives of star-crossed lovers Colossus and Kitty Pryde, there’s no telling what can happen next!


“When I joined Matt [Fraction] on Uncanny, I believe I said I couldn’t be any more excited. I’ve been proved a shameful liar.” explains Gillen. “I’m even more excited now. When I look at what we’ve got planned, and knowing that I’m going to be writing it, I just lean back in my chair and cackle until my fiancée starts worrying about me.”

Just what does Kieron Gillen have planned for the Uncanny X-Men? And what could the spaceship from Breakworld mean for X-Men and the Marvel Universe? Find out as Kieron Gillen begins his all new X-tenure with three gripping issues in one month starting with Uncanny X-Men #534.1!
