Official Press Release

Marvel is pleased to announce that Uncanny X-Men #492, featuring Messiah CompleX Chapter Two, has sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at the retail level). Marking the second straight sell-out for the hotly anticipated and critically-acclaimed Messiah CompleX storyline, Uncanny X-Men #492 raises the stakes for the X-Men and their opponents as the hunt continues for the new mutant! To meet the demand for this issue, Marvel is going back to press with Uncanny X-Men #492 Second Printing Variant, featuring Billy Tan's interior art on the new cover.

"This couldn't make me happier,"said editor Nick Lowe. "I think a lot of people viewed this crossover with a lot of hesitance, looking at the last few of the 90's crossovers. This one is so different and so good. I think we're going to see more of this. I don't think we can drive home enough that there aren't any side-issues of this crossover. The story continues in each and every issue, no matter what the title."

Critics and fans agree--Messiah CompleX delivers! "Brubaker has begun to weave a tapestry that is going to have fans buzzing all winter and I can't wait to continue to follow the pattern,"gushed Gabriel Diaz of Comixtreme.Com, who deemed the event, "Uber-recommended."

"I have little reason to doubt the next two months are going to be exciting ones for mutantkind everywhere,"said IGN.Com's Jesse Schedeen. "A must read."

One will be their savior. One will betray them. One will rise to lead them. And only one event will reveal them all--Messiah CompleX! Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on the red-hot comic book event of the fall, as the X-Men are on everyone's minds! Don't miss out on a single chapter of this mutant epic and Uncanny X-Men #492 Second Printing Variant.
