    X-Men Get ‘Disassembled’ in “Uncanny X-Men” Relaunch

    Teased in July at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel will be relaunching “Uncanny X-Men” with a 10-part weekly arc called ‘Disassembled’ beginning in November. Like most weekly series, a large creative team has been brought on to tell this story. Writers Ed Brisson, Kelly Thompson, and Matthew Rosenberg will team with artists Mahmud Asrar, R.B. Silva, Yildiray Cinar, and Pere Perez for the series. You can check out a teaser for the series below with art from David Marquez and Rachelle Rosenberg.

    “Uncanny X-Men” is the longest running “X-Men” title and has been absent from Marvel’s publishing line since the ‘ResurrXion’ relaunch in early 2017, which ushered in the “X-Men: Gold” and “X-Men: Blue” era. The last volume was written by Cullen Bunn with art from Greg Land and others, and ran 19 issues from 2015 to 2017. The title of the series’ weekly arc ‘Disassembled’ was also the name of a crossover event which kicked off Brian Michael Bendis and David Finch’s “New Avengers” run back in 2004. Notably absent from the teaser above is the newly resurrected Wolverine.

    All members of the creative team are current writers and artists on the X-Books. Ed Brisson is the writer of the upcoming “Extermination” event, which begins next week, that is set to send the original, time-displaced X-Men back to their own time (or kill them). That team is conspicuously absent from the teaser above. Kelly Thompson and Pere Perez were the team on the recently concluded “Rogue & Gambit” miniseries which has carried over into the new “Mr. and Mrs. X” ongoing teaming Thompson and artist Oscar Bazaldua. Matthew Rosenberg was the writer on the weekly “Phoenix Resurrection” miniseries and is currently writing “Astonishing X-Men” with many of the characters in the teaser. On the art side, Mahmud Asrar was most recently the series artist on “X-Men: Red,” R.B. Silva worked on “X-Men: Blue” and “Hunt for Wolverine: Adamantium Agenda,” and Yildiray Cinar has illustrated recent issues of “Weapon X.”

    The weekly series promises that “No one will survive the experience” (a play on the cover of Kitty Pryde’s first appearance) and begins with “Uncanny X-Men” #1 on November 14th.
