Marvel’s X-Men: Second Coming event continues to be a big hit, adding two more sell-outs to the list!
Second Coming continues to amaze and astonish as Marvel is pleased to announce X-Factor #205 and X-Men Legacy #236 have sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at retail level) and will return with X-Factor #205 Second Printing Variant and X-Men Legacy #236 Second Printing Variant!
The future of Mutantkind hangs in the balance at the midpoint of Second Coming! It all starts with X-Factor #205 Second Printing Variant, brought to fans by the prolific Peter David and artist Valentine De Landro, in which the “known-to-be-dead” Bolivar Trask is resurrected! Trask has but one mission: exterminate all of X-Factor!
In X-Men Legacy #236 Second Printing Variant, the rock star team of writer Mike Carey and illustrator Greg Land orchestrate the survive-or-perish showdown of the century! When Bastion encases Utopia in an impenetrable bubble, leaving the X-Men immobile, it’s time for Marvel’s preeminent mutant team to dig in and let the fighting begin!
Second Coming has everyone raving!
“De Landro has always been, in my mind, the definitive artist for “X-Factor,” and this issue showcases that perfectly.” – James Hunt, ComicBookResources.com on X-Factor #205
“The dialogue between characters makes you feel that they are not just a team, but a family that knows each other inside and out. The little jokes between characters and the facial expressions, superbly done by the amazing Greg Land, tell us the deep feelings they have for their comrades and help bring levity to the situation at hand.” – Chris Bushley, Cosmicbooknews.com on X-Men Legacy #236
Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on future Second Coming tie-ins as they continue to fly right off shelves and have fans demanding more! With their backs against the wall (or bubble) and the dangerous forsce bearing down on them, will the X-Men be able to make it through the Second Coming alive? Find out in X-Factor #205 Second Printing Variant and X-Men Legacy #236 Second Printing Variant!
