The X-Men will never be the same after X-Men: Second Coming! Marvel has brought together the greatest creative teams in the industry to usher in the return of the mutant messiah, Hope!

Will Cyclops’ leadership be enough to coordinate the rescue of the world’s most important mutant or will the enemies of mutant kind finally triumph? Marvel is also pleased to announce that X-Factor #204 and X-Men Legacy #235 have sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at the retail level) and will return with X-Factor #204 Second Printing Variant ,X-Men Legacy #235 Second Printing Variant and X-Force #26 Second Printing Variant!

X-Men: Second Coming has everyone raving!

“Kyle, Yost and Finch deliver a blockbuster opening salvo in a big way.” – Brendan McGuirk, Newsarama.com on the X-Men: Second Coming One-Shot

“Packed full of story and action and really sets the stage for the coming months. Terry Dodson’s art is fantastic, as always. His figures are all attractive and dynamic, while his settings and background art are expansive and incredibly detailed.” – Jonathan Chuang, BrokenFrontier.com on Uncanny X-Men #523

“I have to commend Zeb Wells and the writing team in general for making this crossover so readily accessible. You won’t miss a beat if this is your first issue of New Mutants.” – Tyler Parker, IGN.com on New Mutants # 15

“Mike Carey distributes the love equally and the characters from all of the intertwined crossover participants get an equal and quality laden moment or two to shine. The development of Cannonball continues here, highlighting Sam as someone who really grabs hold of the reigns and takes command of his teammates.” – Robert Tacopina, ComicsBulletin.com on X-Men Legacy #235

“One-quarter of the way into “Second Coming,” this is the best installment so far.” – Timothy Callahan, ComicBookResources.com on X-Factor #204

“Kyle/Yost did a great job with the script here, as did Choi on artwork.” – Adam Chapman, Comixtreme.com on X-Force #26

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on all X-Men: Second Coming issues, as the series continues to generate significant praise from all corners! Will the X-Men find salvation or ultimate destruction in the hands of Hope? Read X-Men: Second Coming to find out!
