The HORESMEN Ride Again – and Get a New Look Courtesy of a re-vamped Salvador Larocca!!

Mutantkind has been Decimated to the verge of extinction and finds itself in need of a savior. Beginning in X-Men #182, the world must brace themselves for the return of APOCALYPSE! And to help readers brace themselves, Marvel is pleased to offer, at no extra charge, 5 additional pages of backup stories featuring the Horsemen.

Fans know that wherever Apocalypse goes, his Horsemen are sure to follow! Historically, his Horsemen have been mutants willing to make a deal with the devil, and this time his chosen Horsemen will cut the X-Men deeper than ever before! This time, the X-Men will find those they once called friends and teammates on Apocalypse's side.

Sunfire has already been revealed as a new Horsemen, but for a MAJOR hint as to who will be the Horseman Death, check out this unseen cover to X-Men #185.

And Apocalypse isn't the only one who's changed. Superstar X-artist Salvador Larocca has adopted a jaw-dropping new style, just in time for a revamped Apocalypse and four brand-new Horsemen.

"Salva-already an amazing artist-has succeeded in taking his art style to the next level," says editor Mike Marts. "His change in style adds new layers of excitement and energy to the pages. Readers are going to love this."

X-Men #182 kicks off the five-part "Blood of Apocalypse" storyline where each issue will feature a bonus five page back-up story, at no extra cost, explaining why each of Apocalypse's Horsemen made their deal with the devil.

Be sure to pick up X-Men #182 for the beginning of a huge turning point in X-Men history where destruction and betrayal ensure that only the fittest will survive.
