Today feels like Ed Brubaker Day. Three news articles about the man. So his year-long "epic" is just about over. I know people have had mixed feelings about it. I've enjoyed it. It's been nice to get the X-Men away from Earth and the mansion. I'm still on the fence over Vulcan but I've been diggin' Darwin. I hope he finds his way out of the M'kraan Crystal.
It's been a long year for the team of mutants in Uncanny X-Men, as writer Ed Brubaker has put them through the paces for the last 11 issues, all leading up to this moment! Uncanny X-Men #486 brings readers the conclusion of "The Rise and Fall Of The Shi'ar Empire" and not everyone will be returning to Earth! We've got the M'Kraan Cystal, a psychotic man atop the Shi'ar throne and a girl with the power of the Phoenix Force—what more do you need to know?
Critically acclaimed scribe Ed Brubaker and "Young Gun" artist Billy Tan have delivered 11 action packed issues, with fans riveted by the ride! "With drama, action, and intergalactic adventure the likes of which the X-Men haven't seen in far too long, 'The Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar Empire' has been quite an amazing run," said Aaron Stueve of BrokenFrontier.Com.
Don't miss the pulse pounding conclusion this May, as Uncanny X-Men will never be the same! Not everyone's coming back to Earth and the ones that do will find that the consequences of their actions will carry through to this fall's top secret X-Men event. As one door closes, another opens…let's just hope the X-Men can survive it!
