"X-Men: Messiah CompleX" Chapter 1

Since the events of M-Day, the mutant population has been reduced to a mere handful and no new mutants have been born. But all that changes in the highly-anticipated, extra-sized X-Men: Messiah CompleX One-Shot, from Eisner and Harvey winning “Best Writer” Ed Brubaker and superstar artist Marc Silvestri, when the X-Men discover a new mutant has arrived. But this cause for celebration is tainted by the early arrival of the Marauders and the Purifiers—and with those two groups involved, the X-Men may not find this mutant! But if they do, will this new player prove to be their savior or a harbinger of doom for mutantkind?

A perfect jumping on point for new readers, this special one-shot sets the stage for the jaw-dropping changes to come! This issue features NINE extra pages of hints of what’s to come, drawn by someof the hottest talents today while red-hot artists David Finch and Silvestri provide two stunning covers, with the latter available as the X-Men: Messiah CompleX Poster.

“I cannot wait to get this book into the fans hands,” says editor Nick Lowe. “We’ve been planning this event for so long and I’ve been rejoicing behind the lines as each script and page of art came in. It’s a simple story with knock-out art that is going to remind the comics world that X-Men is the hottest ticket in town.”

Continuing weekly through the X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, X-Factor and New X-Men, Messiah Complex marks the first major X-Men event in over ten years! New alliances will be forged; new leaders will be chosen; friends will become enemies and no one will ever be the same.

“We are dying to get our hands on ‘Messiah Complex,’” gushed Richard George of IGN.Com in their look at can’t miss fall events.

This October, the hunt is on…and the prize is the fate of mutantkind! You can’t afford to miss what will become known as the most crucial chapter in mutant history and it all begins in X-Men: Messiah CompleX One-Shot!
