Marvel Announces New X-FORCE Ongoing Series This July

X-Force Ongoing Series Releases on July 31st


Marvel Comics announced an X-Force ongoing series on Monday (April 9th). The new series will be written acclaimed writer Geoffrey Thorne and will be drawn by artist Marcus To. The new series is the latest announcement from the publisher that began last month as the publisher leads the X-Men in a new direction after the events of the Fall of X. The first issue is sure to have a slew of variant covers when it is released. However, the main cover of the X-Force ongoing series will be drawn by Stephen Segovia.

“I cannot believe the reaction to my pitch with, ‘That sounds like X-Force to us,’” Geoffrey Thorne said in the press release from Marvel. “It’s a new vibe and a different mission, but it’s still X-Force. Looking at all the books coming out under this banner, I’ll just paraphrase the prophet, Sheryl Crow, ‘All I wanna do is have some fun,’ and looking at what I’m getting to do and what the others are bringing, I’m absolutely not the only one.”

Marcu To was equally excited. “When Marvel approached me to be the artist for X-Force, I was ecstatic,” he said in the press release. “I was always a big fan of the X-books growing up, and to be a part of bringing that excitement to new and old readers alike was an opportunity I could not turn down. And the chance to draw Betsy Braddock again is icing on the cake!”

From the press release:

This time, this iconic comic book super squad will be built from the ground up by the mutant inventor—FORGE! Accessing an omega-level degree of his unique and complex mutant power to build anything, Forge will bear witness to everything broken in the world. Luckily, he knows exactly who he’ll need to repair it: RACHEL SUMMERS, BETSY BRADDOCK, SAGE, SURGE, and TANK. To save nothing short of existence itself, they’ll jump sword, gun, and fist first into deadly uncertainty, and the only thing getting in their way will be the secrets they keep!


A NEW PATH FORGED! The world is fractured. Forge uses his powers to devise the only fix: an all-new, all-different X-FORCE! Forge leads a custom-made, handpicked team of mutants in off-the-books missions so dire, so integral to the fate of the Marvel Universe, there’s no time to stop for permission! Plus, as Forge detects increasing threats across the planet, he’ll recruit specialists for each target. It’s a revolving door of Marvel guest stars and first up: that regenerating degenerate, DEADPOOL!

X-Force #1 will release to comic book shops everywhere and digitally on Wednesday, July 31st. Stay tuned to The Comic Book Spot for all your news and reviews in the world of comics.
