Check out the X-Men: Hellfire Gala 2023 trailer down below.
The special one-shot will be written by Gerry Duggan with various artists including Kris Anka, Joshua Cassara, Russell Dauterman, Adam Kubert, Pepe Larraz, R.B. Silva, and Luciano Vecchio, HELLFIRE GALA 2023 #1 will officially launch FALL OF X, turning mutantkind’s greatest night into their worst nightmare. This year’s Hellfire Gala will leave the X-Men reeling in the wake of shocking revelations, stunning betrayals, horrifying tragedy, impossible deaths, and so, so much more.
Here’s what Duggan had to say over at Marvel.com
“Every year [at the Hellfire Gala], something really big has happened,” editor Jordan D. White explained at Marvel Unlimited’s X-Men: 60 Uncanny Years Live Virtual Event. “The first year is when mutants surprised all of mankind by terraforming Mars in the moment and claiming it for mutant kind, which was a huge thing, obviously. At the second one, they were just kind of doing a little bit of a show off one, but that…it coincided with the world finding out that mutants have the power of resurrection and that no mutants die anymore. So that ended up being kind of not 100% great for them. But overall, okay, still they got some news out there about how great they are.”
“They’ve got their plans for this year, but this year also is the issue that kicks off FALL OF X. So I’ll definitely tell you, things don’t go the way they planned. How bad that is, you will have to buy the book to see,” he teased. “But let me tell you, this is a book you’re going to absolutely want to buy. It is jam packed with the best artists we’ve got working on it right now. We’ve got Kris Anka, Josh Cassara, Russell Dauterman, Adam Kubert, Pepe Larraz, R.B. Silva, Luciano Vecchio, and more. It is going to be a killer lineup.”
And this will also be the book that will introduce the next batch of X-Men to replace the current roster appearing in the X-books right now.
