X-Men Blue #2
Solicit: Magneto has joined the X-Men, but due to their long history, not everyone on the team trusts him – especially not Jean Grey.

Solicit: Back to basics! An all-new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants is rampaging through New York City and there are some surprising familiar faces in their ranks! Can the X-Men subdue their foes and former friends?
Alec: The flagship of the X-Men ResurrXion returns and introduces to us a new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Are they familiar faces returned or new characters embodying the villainous spirit of the Brotherhood?
Saga: Book Two Deluxe HC
Solicit: At long last, it’s finally time for the second hardcover collection of Saga.
