IMMORTAL X-MEN BY KIERON GILLEN VOL. 4 (Paperback)
Charles Xavier had a dream - now he has nothing. Orchis' savage strike on Krakoa's Hellfire Gala was more horrifying than Xavier and the Quiet Council ever could have dreamed. Mutantkind has been all but wiped from the face of the Earth - and it's partly Charles' doing! As Sebastian Shaw tries to profit from the tragedy, Exodus steps up to lead his displaced people to a new promised land, but the desert holds many dangers! And Xavier, who swore to stay on Krakoa and defend its memory, is leaving. There must be a good reason he decided to swap one doomed island for another, but dark secrets await him beneath Muir Island! Meanwhile, something is very wrong with Jean Grey - or is it something very right? Being immortal means nothing when you run out of time! Collecting IMMORTAL X-MEN #14-18.
An award-winning critic and journalist, Kieron Gillen wrote for organizations such as PC Gamer, The Guardian, Rock, Paper, Shotgun and WIRED before turning his attention to comics. His previous credits include the critically lauded Phonogram with frequent creative partner Jamie McKelvie, as well as Thor, S.W.O.R.D. and Generation Hope. Gillen relaunched two long-standing Marvel series in Uncanny X-Men and Journey into Mystery before again teaming with McKelvie for an acclaimed take on Young Avengers. Gillen turned his attention to Iron Man for Marvel NOW! and proved the perfect scribe to put carefully chosen words into the mouth of a legendary Star Wars villain in Darth Vader. Gillen introduced Doctor Aphra into the galaxy far, far away in those pages, and continues her adventures in her own series.
