All New X-Men Volume 1 Hardcover



Five young and idealistic X-Men have been pulled out of the past and brought forward in time to the present day... and they have discovered that, as far as they are concerned, the future stinks. Their school has been flattened. Their mentor and guiding light, Professor Charles Xavier, is gone. After years of catastrophic in-fighting and apocalyptic battles, mutantkind is more hated and feared than ever. Their future selves have grown up to be total jerks.

These gifted young heroes may not have been planning on making a permanent move into their own future, but they're not about to turn their backs on the disaster their lives have become. These are kids who still believe in a future worth fighting for... and if they have to fight their own older selves to make it happen, then so be it!

The heroes of the past are here to remake the present as the world of the X-Men gets turned upside down! Look for your own copy of the All New X-Men Volume 1: Here Comes Yesterday Hardcover, on sale now at Curious Comics!

He's the best he is at what he does... and this week, what he does is star in awesome comic books!
