Marvel Entertainment has just announced that the Uncanny X-Men title is returning. The first issue of the new volume will be on comic book store shelves on November 14th, 2018.
While not a whole lot is known at this point, we do know that Matt Rosenberg, Kelly Thompson and Ed Brisson will make up the lead of the creative team. We also know that it will kick off with a “10 part weekly” story called “Disassembled” during which (as you can see in the teaser art by David Marquez) that “No One Survives The Experience!” The tag-line is a play on the tag-line from the cover of Uncanny X-Men #139 which read “Welcome to the X-Men, Kitty Pryde – Hope you survive the experience!”
Hot off the excitement of the Fantastic Four title being announced. This is a fantastic news for a comic book fan like me.

Last month at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Comics announced that UNCANNY X-MEN would return this fall. Today, the creative team was officially announced as well as an official release date for UNCANNY X-MEN #1 — Wednesday, November 14. The new ongoing series is jam-packed with X-talent — all the writers and artists have previously worked on X-Men characters and stories and will be teaming up for more mutant mayhem!
UNCANNY X-MEN will launch with a 10-part weekly epic called “Disassembled.” Where the series goes from there depends on who is left standing! In this “epic tale of mystery and tragic disappearance,” every remaining mutant on the planet will come together in “an adventure so Earth-shattering, it could very well be the X-Men’s FINAL mission!” With stakes this high, it will take an extraordinary team to tell this story.
Writers Ed Brisson (EXTERMINATION), Kelly Thompson (MR. AND MRS. X), and Matthew Rosenberg (PHOENIX RESURRECTION, ASTONISHING X-MEN) will join the equally X-perienced artistic team of Mahmud Asrar (X-MEN RED), R.B. Silva (X-MEN BLUE), Yildiray Cinar (WEAPON X), and Pere Perez (ROGUE AND GAMBIT). Leinil Frances Yu will provide artwork for the covers.
