Gillen, who has not written the X-Men since Creepy X-Men back in 2011, described it like a book “about Krakoa, about the Silent Council and all its muffled cries … It’s great ideas, politics, fights and fashion, lies, creation and destruction, all told across the widest possible canvas, in time and space. ”
