The X-Men have been in print for 50 years! Marvel is celebrating that milestone with a limited series called X-Men Gold that will feature all-new stories from the creators that have made the Children of the Atom what they are today (for better or for worse).
X-Men Gold #1 is an all-new full-length story from writer Chris Claremont and artist Bob McLeod. Claremont has had a rocky return to the franchise over the last few years, but there’s no denying the impact he had on the X-Men and the Marvel Universe in general. There’s also an all-new story from Stan “the Man” Lee! Other stories set at various points in X-Men history are from creators Len Wein, Jorge Molina, Fabian Nicieza, Salvador Larroca, Roy Thomas, and Pat Olliffe.
Check out the preview of X-Men Gold #1 here below.
â€œOver the last 50 years, the X-Men have changed peopleâ€™s lives, myself included.â€ Says X-Men Senior Editor Nick Lowe.
â€œThrough Cyclops, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Kitty Pryde and the rest of the X-Men, the creators of these merry mutants taught us that itâ€™s not only okay to be different, but that difference is to be celebrated! To honor the characters and the creators we wanted to do something specialâ€¦ hence X-MEN:GOLD!â€
X-Men Gold #1 hits store shelves and digital platforms on November 13, 2013 — Pre-order it now.
