Spread across 148 fine pages of print, the X-Men are on the cover, and there’s a preview of “Apocalypse Wars” with contributions from creators Cullen Bunn, Jeff Lemire and Dennis Hopeless, alongside a rundown of the 20 best X-Men stories of all time, as picked by author Carl Anka – and a preview of Civil War 2.
