Marvel Teases War of the Realms, House of X, Powers of X, Absolute Carnage and Something in December at C2E2

This weekend, Marvel unveiled its 2019 Publishing Slate to a hall of fans attending Marvel’s Next Big Thing panel during this year’s Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. Hosted by Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski along with some of Marvel’s biggest creators, the panel recapped some of the weekend’s biggest Marvel Comics news and teased what’s next in the Marvel Universe – pointing to a yet-to-be-revealed story in December.

Since the convention’s opening on Friday, attendees have received thrilling new looks at Marvel’s world-shaking War of the Realms series, written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Young Gun Russell Dauterman; the deadly Absolute Carnage event, written by Donny Cates and drawn by Ryan Stegman; and the next monumental chapter for the X-Men with House of X and Powers of X, written by Jonathan Hickman and drawn by Young Gun Pepe Larraz and R.B. Silva respectively.

Each of these standalone series will introduce fans to groundbreaking new ideas and shocking implications for the Marvel Universe, setting the scene for Marvel’s most iconic and popular Super Heroes later this year.

Starting next month, get ready for some of the biggest stories ever in the pages of Marvel Comics!

This April, Marvel’s War of the Realms commences, featuring Marvel’s greatest heroes such as Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel! The dark sorcerer Malekith wages a war that has spread from one otherworldly realm to the next, razing each one to the ground as his armies move from conquest to conquest. Now there’s only one realm left standing: ours.

This July, Marvel’s House of X and Powers of X will mark the next major milestone in X-Men history. Since their introduction by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby over 50 years ago, fans around the world have followed the extraordinary stories of the X-Men through seminal moments like Giant-Size X-Men, 1991’s X-Men #1, Age of Apocalypse, and New X-Men. Each of these moments introduced a new era for mutantkind – and starting this summer, the world will experience the next seminal moment in the history of the X-Men.

This August, the Marvel Universe will need to survive Absolute Carnage – and no one is safe. Beginning in Free Comic Book Day Spider-Man/Venom #1 (out May 5), Cletus Kasady is back, and he’s deadlier than ever. On a hunt for every Super Hero in the Marvel Universe who has worn a symbiote, Carnage has his eyes on his first victims…starting with some of our favorite Marvel heroes. Everyone is a target!

During Marvel’s Next Big Thing Panel, critically-acclaimed creator Jonathan Hickman announced two new series: House of X and Powers of X, beginning this July!

Ever since Stan Lee and Jack Kirby introduced the X-Men, fans everywhere have followed the extraordinary stories of the X-Men through seminal moments like Giant-Size X-Men, 1991’s X-Men #1, Age of Apocalypse, and New X-Men.

Review: Uncanny X-Men #8

Uncanny X-Men #8

From the Age of Apocalypse to the end of the X-Men…and the dawn of the AGE OF X-MAN???

After the last issue detour which took us to the Age of Apocalypse, things are explained a bit better in Uncanny X-Men #8. The previous issue was a bit disjointed missing some key information and it’s this issue that lays things out a bit better putting the previous into better context. It’s an example where comics need to be judged by single issues as well as complete arcs.

Writers Matthew Rosenberg, Kelly Thompson, and Ed Brisson return us to Earth Prime where the debate that raged last issue continues with the rest of the X-Men. With the younger X-Men trapped with X-Man, is it worth sacrificing them to stop the greater threat? It’s an interesting debate, just like last issue and it’s a bit surprising who does what to resolve the issue.

The issue is a good mix of that moral debate along with the crazy you can expect in an X-Men comic, along with action… like a battle with Apocalypse!? Yeah, things are ramped up this issue leading us closer to the coming Age of X-Man. It’s a bit clearer by the end of this issue how that might come about.

The art too is improved. R.B. Silva delivers the pencils with Adriano Di Benedetto on ink, Rachelle Rosenberg on color, and Joe Caramagna handling the lettering. Silva, and the team’s, style really fits the issue and the action within. There’s a lot packed in with a lot to cover and different concepts and it all works really well. Apocalypse looks fantastic and Bishop too stands out as just looking like his old bad-ass self.

The issue is an improvement over last issue’s side quest and it gets the event back on track. Again, this is a prime example of having to judge the individual issue as well as the arc it’s a part of of. It lifts the previous issue and itself stands out as an action focused chapter of the event. Uncanny X-Men #8 feels like old-school X-Men and ups the excitement for what comes next.

Review: Uncanny X-Men #5

Uncanny X-Men #5

Just when things didn’t look like they could get worse… The ride of the Four Horsemen of Salvation? The coming of X-Man? And…a return to the Age of Apocalypse? The weekly epic that threatens to leave the X-Men in tatters rolls on toward its explosive conclusion!

The X-Men are confused and doing what they can to protect individuals and stop the chaos X-Man is causing. But, what’s X-Man really thinking? Uncanny X-Men #5 reveals a bit more of what’s going on and why he’s kidnapped the individuals he has. Again, it’s an interesting twist to this event which gives a new spin on some old themes.

Writers Matthew Rosenberg, Kelly Thompson, and Ed Brisson have put together a story where you need to question what evil truly is. X-Man wants to create a world of peace, much like Apocalypse, and the two are coming from different directions to do just that. But, is X-Man evil? Is his act of peace an act of war? It’s an interesting concept and the trio make it more so with the echoes of a classic such as “Age of Apocalypse.”

They also up the desperation of this issue. We really feel like the odds are against the X-Men here as they go up against Magneto and Warren and the end of the issue delivers a hell of a turn with a nice horror tinge to it.

All of this is delivered with solid art by R.B. Silva, with ink by Adriano Di Benedetto, color by Rachelle Rosenberg, and lettering by Chris Eliopoulos. There’s a lot packed into this issue with some panels filled with characters and while there’s some slip of detail here and there, overall, it’s a solid issue where the art helps convey the emotion and desperation. Then there’s that last page… the team nailed it.

This is a good issue. It’s the moment of desperation of our heroes as they struggle to figure out what to do. The event continues a slight throwback vibe to it all that’s a nice welcome back for the Uncanny X-Men.
