In Uncanny X-Men #488, the Eisner Nominated Ed Brubaker and superstar artist Salvador Larroca bring you the second chapter of "The Extremists," the newest pulse-pounding storyline that sets the stage for this fall's massive X-Men event. The X-Men have returned from their harrowing journey into space, and with the team still reeling from the events of that battle, now would be the worst time for another crisis-so it's fortunate that Storm has made her return to the X-men! The Wakandian Queen is recruited to help her former teammates investigate a series of unprovoked outbreaks of violence amongst the Morlocks, a situation made even worse by the tragic events of M-Day.

Plus…Magneto's return? After he was caught in a violent explosion in the pages of New Avengers, the militant mutant rights leader was thought to be dead, but Professor X isn't convinced. His search continues for his former friend in the pages of Uncanny X-Men #488.

Aaron Stuave of BrokenFrontier.com says of Brubaker's Uncanny X-Men, "if you're not reading it, you're missing out on something big."

This issue also features the second part of the Endangered Species backup story by superstar writer Mike Carey (X-Men, Ultimate Fantastic Four) and acclaimed artist Mark Bagely (Ultimate Spider-Man), marking the penciller's first new project since finishing his historic run on Ultimate Spider-Man. Follow the Beast as he races against the clock to try to save his species...with some unlikely allies. And don't miss Uncanny X-Men: Ride & Fall Of The Shi'ar Empire HC, collecting Ed Brubaker's first epic storyline and featuring the art of Young Gun artist Billy Tan.
