Featuring breathtaking art by Leinil Francis Yu, Carmen Carnero, Pepe Larraz, Stefano Caselli, Joshua Cassara, Mahmud Asrar, Phil Noto, and more, X of Swords will be an unforgettable saga that will go alongside classic crossovers like The Mutant MassacreAge of Apocalypse, and Messiah Complex in X-Men history.

Amidst the dramatic battles and unbelievable twists, fans will get introduced to a host of new X-Men enemies when a mysterious group of swordbearers emerge from the land of Arakko. Get a closer look at these exciting new additions to the X-Men mythos in the newly revealed covers, including their enigmatic leader—a brand-new character who will send lasting shockwaves throughout the world of mutants.
