For a long time, X-Men comics were just a second thought at Marvel Comics. And then, Jonathan Hickman came.

What are the X-Men by Jonathan Hickman about?

A new era begins for the mutants of the Marvel World. With artists Pepe Larraz and R.B. Silva, writer Jonathan Hickman uses past, present and future to build a new kind of X-Story for the Mutantkind.

Charles Xavier has a plan. He makes an offer to the human in order to build a new Mutant nation on Krakoa Island where all the mutants in the world—good or bad—are welcome. Together, they will take their place in the future and nothing will stop them. It’s a new beginning, but humans may not be ready to accept it.
