Hard science fiction collides with a comic industry tent-pole in this invigoratingly fresh take on the X-Men. Building off of his success writing Avengers and Secret Wars, writer Jonathan Hickman set out to sprinkle some of his magic dust on another fan-favorite Marvel property. And boy, did he ever deliver.
House of X and Power of X are two separate comic books that are designed to be read concurrently. These comics completely re-invent the past, present, and future of X-Men as we know it. As such, Hickman single-handedly rights the ship on a property that has been mismanaged for years on end.
Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of House of X/Power of X. While you’re at it, go ahead and cancel your plans for the weekend too. It’s a lot to take in.
