Believe it or not, the last X-Men original graphic novel was 1982's God Loves, Man Kills by Chris Claremont and Brent Anderson.
That's about to change, though. A new 128-page OGN titled X-Men: No More Humans by writer Mike Carey and artist Salvador Larroca is set to hit shelves May 7, 2014. It will focus on the ramifications of the recent Battle of the Atom crossover. Specifically, the book will be about an X-Men team faced with a reality in which every single non-mutant person -- including all the other superheroes -- have disappeared.

It's a sad time for misfits everywhere, as Hellblazer is o
So this is pretty neat, actually. Created by Mike Carey and Peter Gross, The Unwritten is an urban fantasy series starring Tom Taylor, a young man who was his famous father's inspiration for a character in a mega popular novel.

Well, some concept art (not the final product, thankfully) culled from the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine feature what we can only assume is one of those three new character
Future X-Men: Destiny players haven't had much more than a few seconds of footage and a DNA-defying tagline to go on over the past few months, but new details culled from the February issue of the Official Xbox Magazine by Stickskills, provide new insights into the kind of adventure would-be mutant warriors may have. Though the Destiny won't li
