X of Swords: 8 brand-new covers from the upcoming X-Men crossover

This September, X marks the spot — and the start of a brand-new X-Men and Excalibur crossover slashing its way out of Jonathan Hickman’s and Tini Howard’s X-Men and Excalibur titles — X of Swords.

X of Swords will begin with prelude stories in X-Men #12 and Excalibur #12 and lead in to X of Swords: Creation #1 and X-Factor #4, the first two chapters of the event.

A look at the full X of Swords checklist, which will begin with the aforementioned X of Swords: Creation and end with X of Swords: Destruction:
