House Of X #1, the beginning of the Jonathan Hickman remaking and remolding if the X-Men and Marvel mutantkind with Pepe Larraz is up for FOC this weekend. Final Order Cut-Off, the final dates that retailers can increase or decrease orders of the book without penalty and a guarantee-ish that they’ll get what they ordered.
With a beginning that seems straight out of Warren Ellis and Jason Howard‘s Trees, and Troy Kennedy Martin‘s Edge Of Darkness, it begins with words spoken by Professor Charles Xavier. As he speaks to the entire planet.
‘HUMANS OF THE PLANET EARTH. WHILE YOU SLEPT THE WORLD CHANGED.’
And it has. Welcome to House Of X #1 and Powers Of X #1. You know that oft-used phrase, ‘things will never be the same again?’ This may have more claim to that than anything since Mark Millar and Steve McNiven‘s Civil War. Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely‘s New X-Men. Chris Claremont and John Byrne‘s Death of Jean Grey.
