Marvel Comics has released an event checklist for ‘A.X.E: Judgment Day’ which kicks off its first issue this July. In fact, retailers have until June 20th to put their orders in for the first issue. The series is by Kieron Gillen and Valerio Schiti. This is an updated checklist from the checklist revealed in April.
A few updates to the checklist include Eve of Judgment #1 now coming out in July, as well as the full list of releases in August and September.
So what’s Judgment Day about?
The X-Men have achieved immortality and mutants have taken their place as the dominant species on the planet. The Eternals have discovered long hidden knowledge about their species, including a devastating truth about mutantkind. The Avengers have come into direct conflict with the Celestials and are currently using a fallen Celestial as their base of operations, slowly unlocking its secrets… When the Eternals brazenly target the mutant nation of Krakoa, the Avengers try desperately to de-escalate a potentially apocalyptic war. But this is no simple conflict. The Eternals’ purpose cannot be denied and mutantkind’s future will not be threatened. And after the opening battles, new players and revelations for both sides will emerge as the inhabitants of the Marvel Universe are JUDGED by the greatest power they’ve ever come into contact with.
