Marvel reveals new details on X-Men series ‘Inferno’ by Jonathan Hickman

Jonathan Hickman’s new X-Men series ‘Inferno’ will be extra-sized with a new artist for every issue.

Press Release

Ahead of its release this September, Marvel Comics has revealed new details about Jonathan Hickman’s new four-issue series Inferno. First off, all told the series is 160 pages long. The series will also feature three artists, which is not dissimilar from Hickman’s Giant-Size series which rotated artists and was collected last December.

“I’m very excited that we’re finally getting to share with everyone the follow-up to House of X/Powers of X,” Hickman said. “The story is 160 pages over four issues drawn exquisitely by Valerio Schiti, R.B. Silva and Stefano Caselli. I cannot wait for people to read it.”

Artists include R.B. Silva, Valerio Schiti, and Stefano Caselli. As you can see from the feature image on this article, Mark Brooks has delivered another fantastic piece of teaser artwork for this latest X-Men milestone.

So what’s Inferno about?

Promises were made and broken. The rulers of Krakoa have been playing a dangerous game with a dangerous woman, and they are about to see how badly that can burn them. Having been denied her wishes yet again, Mystique is ready to follow through on her promise to burn the nation of Krakoa to the ground. Mutantkind’s bright future is threatened like never before as Hickman brings his game-changing plans to a head. Fans can expect more revelations from the lives of Moira MacTaggert, Nimrod’s revenge, vicious power plays, and more in this pivotal chapter in X-Men history. Throughout this four-issue limited series, Hickman will be joined by an incredible lineup of artists beginning with acclaimed illustrator Valerio Schiti. Known for masterfully depicting large-scale action alongside intense human drama, the S.W.O.R.D. and Empyre artist is perfect for bringing this heartbreaking saga to life.

Fun fact, X-Men Monday readers got a sort of inside scoop back in 2019 when Hickman revealed his favorite X-Men event name of all time was, in fact, Inferno.

AIPT: What’s your favorite X-Event of all time?

Jonathan: “Inferno” has the best name. I want to say “The Phalanx Covenant” to be less obvious, but the answer is “Age of Apocalypse.”

Marvel teased the reveal of Inferno last week with the cryptic text that read:

THE BIGGEST MYSTERIES OF JONATHAN HICKMAN’S X-MEN ERA BURN AWAY IN INFERNO!

New York, NY— June 4, 2021 — “There will be an island—not the first, but the last…” Destiny’s foreboding words have stuck with Mystique—and fans—since the very beginning of the age of Krakoa. Now, a day of reckoning is upon mutantkind’s leaders, and the shocking payoff to seeds planted in House of X and Powers of X arrives in mastermind writer Jonathan Hickman’s brand-new X-Men series: INFERNO!
