Steve Foxe, Vincenzo Carratù, Bernard Chang and Jonas Scharf send a group of dead mutants back in time to save their world.
This past weekend brought news on the future — or lack of one — for the X-Men’s Krakoa era, and following the big reveal of three new miniseries that will tie everything up, Marvel has announced a fourth tie-in miniseries — Dead X-Men.
There’s probably a joke to make here about the past three or so years under the Krakoa banner and its resurrection protocols — I mean, aren’t most of the X-Men technically dead at this point, with cloned copies walking around with their memories? But I digress …
Steve Foxe and a host of artists have been tapped for a Terminator-esque story where Professor X sends a group of five X-Men back in time to try and prevent the destruction of Krakoa, as detailed in this year’s Hellfire Gala special.
“Dead X-Men is one of the most complex stories I’ve worked on at Marvel, but also one of purest: a small group of mutants who have to accomplish the impossible, which is the premise that made me fall in love with the X-Men in the first place,” Foxe said. He’ll be working with several artists on the series, including Vincenzo Carratù, Bernard Chang and Jonas Scharf.

The new series debuts from BOOM! Studios in June.
Following the news of Parasomnia this week comes another horror-themes series written by Cullen Bunn — Basilisk, where he reunites with his Bone Parish collaborator Jonas Scharf for a new supernatural horror series from BOOM! Studios.
They’re joined by colorist Alex Guimarães and letterer Ed Dukeshire.
“Basilisk is an epic, dark, fantasy horror story, and I can’t wait for readers to meet the players on both sides of this tale of revenge. Here we have a woman who has absolutely nothing left to lose hunting down a group of would-be gods, each of whom can use one of the five senses to destroy those around them. They’re terrifying in their own way–the heroes and the villains,” said Bunn. “This is another collaboration with the amazing Jonas Scharf, who worked with me on Bone Parish, and I think his work here is even more amazing, even more deific, even more haunting.”
