THE LAST DANCE!
SECRETS WILL BE REVEALED at the Hellfire Gala! REVENGE WILL BE TAKEN. And someone’s number is gone. You never guess from whom.
People from planet Earth. While you slept, the world changed.The now iconic opening line of House of X # 1, the beginning of the radical transformation of the X-Men franchise by writer Jonathan Hickman, foretold the incredible plans mutant kid was about to unleash on the Marvel universe. In June, the X-Men began to change the world again during Mutant Child’s inaugural HELLFIRE GALA.
Yesterday, the first of many exciting new character designs contributed by X-Men artists specifically for the HELLFIRE GALA were unveiled by Weekly entertainment, and the world saw the meaning of “Mutant Fashion” as envisioned by superstar artist Russell Dauterman. Today, readers can view the covers of all 12 HELLFIRE GALA songs and get their first glimpse of the secrets, the battles and of course the fashion that awaits on this unforgettable evening.
Told in 12 issues, these highly anticipated stories offer different perspectives and points of view from a single night that will go down in Marvel Comics history. During the event, fans can expect exciting moments that will shape the future of the X-Men’s as we know it – including the unveiling of the first Krakoan X-Men team, the last member of which was decided by a mega-popular Marvel. com votes.
The HELLFIRE GALA is the result of an epic creative collaboration of all current X-Men writers and artists. Here’s what Gerry Duggan, writer of Looters and the upcoming groundbreaking HELLFIRE GALA one-shot, Planet-size X-Men, had to say about working on this unique event:
When the builders of Krakoa started discussing the gala on the pages of Marauders and beyond, the writers and editors began to think about what the evening might be. At our X-Retreat in Chicago just over a year ago, we had some very big story ideas and production plans that were empowered to give our artists the time they needed to work on the designs together. Russell was an important part of the Marauders team from the start, and it only made sense to ask if he was at the forefront. The writers stuck to very simple prompts for some of the looks, but overall, each character was a clean slate for Russell and our other performers. Our regular series performers were also asked to contribute about half a dozen high fashion, so if you don’t see your favorite character on a cover, you’ll likely see them at the party.
‘We haven’t sent any of these books to the press yet, but I know we have already made a huge mark on the line with this party. The White Queen and House Carnation are looking for a special night like no other, and it will make all the other galas you hear about look like a carnival. Not that it’s a match, but… Krakoa wins. The whole world is watching us now, so we have to be nothing short of fantastic. “
