Marvel Comics May Solicitations Confirm All Current Titles Will Be Canceled Ahead Of June Relaunch

The Age of Krakoa is very nearly over and Marvel Comics hopes to end it on a high note this May. A period of mutant history unlike any other, the last five years of X-Men comic books have boldly reshaped mutant storytelling forever.

However, while the Krakoan gates might be closing, the spirit and message of Krakoa will live on as the X-Men rise from the ashes this summer with all-new titles and a fresh era which, for now, remains a mystery to us. 

Just like how it began, the conclusion of the Krakoa era is currently being told across two epic interconnected series – Fall of the House of X and Rise of the Powers of X. In addition, some of the most pivotal battles, boldest missions, and breathtaking betrayals are taking place in current series like X-Men, X-Men: Forever, Cable, and Invincible Iron Man

Meanwhile, Wolverine has been embroiled in a war against his archenemy in the “Sabretooth War” story arc. Just in time for the character’s 50th anniversary, this epic storyline and Benjamin Percy’s acclaimed run will reach its riveting – and viciously violent – end in Wolverine #50. The over-sized issue will also feature special anniversary stories from legendary Wolverine creators. 

Aside from Invincible Iron Man, all of these titles will end in May ahead of a “Grand Finale” milestone issue of X-Men in June, setting the stage for a line-wide relaunch later in the summer.

Here’s what’s on the way in May…
