Marvel Comics has been quite high on bearded wunderkind Kieron Gillen (Thor, Generation Hope) as of late. Today, the publisher announced he will take over head writing duties for Uncanny X-Men on issue 534.1, which will release this April.
With the help of artist Carlos Pacheco, Gillen has crafted a tale involving the public’s reaction to Magneto returning to California as an X-Man. The issue has been billed as a “great jumping on point,” so if you’re a new reader, take note. In the next issue, Terry Dodson becomes the book’s resident artist, and a new arc begins featuring baddies from Breakworld.
Gillen’s a great writer and should do wonders for the book. Will you be reading?
