First Look: Uncanny X-Men creative team announced

Featuring the creative talents of Ed Brisson, Kelly Thompson and Matthew Rosenberg!

The X-Men panel at San Diego Comic-Con was a blast, but the big finale did leave a lot to be desired. Why might you ask? Because C.B. Cebulski didn’t reveal the creative team on the upcoming Uncanny X-Men series. Yes, he did confirm it was coming, but we were left wanting more.

New York, NY–August 10, 2018–This November, UNCANNY X-MEN returns with a new ongoing series and it all kicks off with a massive 10-part weekly story! X-MEN DISASSEMBLED brings together nearly every mutant left on earth in a story that threatens to destroy them – an epic tale of mystery and tragic disappearance, with an adventure so earth-shattering, it could very well be the X-Men’s FINAL mission!

Following UNCANNY X-MEN’s initial announcement at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Marvel is excited to announce the full UNCANNY X-MEN creative teams! Featuring fan-favorite creators fresh from their own X-projects, UNCANNY X-MEN brings together acclaimed writers Ed Brisson (Extermination), Kelly Thompson (Mr. & Mrs. X) and Matthew Rosenberg (The Punisher, Phoenix Resurrection). The three superstar writers will join forces with all-star artists Mahmud Asrar (X-Men Red), R.B. Silva (X-Men Blue), Yildiray Cinar (Weapon X) and Pere Pérez (Rogue and Gambit).

Starting this November, the new ongoing series will launch with Disassembled, a stunning and spectacular 10-part weekly epic. Where the series goes from there?
