Jonathan Hickman And Russell Dauterman Bring You Giant-Size X-Men
Jay Cochran - October 25, 2019
The plans Jonathan Hickman has for the X-Men arenít just big; theyíre giant-size. Fresh off launching the X-Men into an exciting new era in HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X, Marvel revealed at MCM Comic Con London that Jonathan Hickman will be joining forces with the industryís top artists to craft a stellar new series: GIANT-SIZE X-MEN. Starting in February, each issue will combine Hickmanís captivating storytelling with the iconic art of a different superstar artist to depict grand-scale adventures focused on specific X-Men characters.
And it all begins with GIANT-SIZE X-MEN: JEAN GREY AND EMMA FROST #1! The new mutant nation of Krakoa is the place for fresh starts, and Jean and Emma, known for their fierce rivalry, will unite to rescue Storm from danger. The two powerful telepaths are in good hands as artist Russell Dauterman will be the first to partner with Hickman for the series. Dauterman will be accompanied by expert colorist Matt Wilson.
Known for his acclaimed work on THE MIGHTY THOR, Dauterman is no stranger to Marvelís merry mutants, often providing phenomenal covers featuring character designs that have made him a favorite among X-Men fans. An X-Men fan himself, Dauterman is eager to use his skills to bring Hickmanís vision to life. "Iíve wanted to draw X-Men comics since I was a kid, so drawing this issue of X-MEN is a dream come true,Ē says Dauterman. ďIím so thrilled to be working on this with Jonathan and Matt, and itís co-starring my favorite character, Jean Grey!"
Giant-Size X-Men was first used as a title in 1975 in a legendary special issue by Len Wein and David Cockrum. It not only marked a new genesis for the team, introducing iconic characters like Storm and Nightcrawler, but is credited for catapulting the X-Men into the powerhouse franchise they are today, a legacy that Hickman and others will now honor month after month. Keep your eyes peeled for announcements about other upcoming GIANT-SIZE X-MEN issues and the artists and characters you can expect to find within their pages!

Can't wait for this one to complete my Dawn of X collection....Emma's costume seem to be back to school head, like generation X....wonder when will they bring back the white queen costume (or the black queen)
† I like the design . And yea anything other than the mini dress
I really liked Jeans red and blue. But this is still a nice costume.
Not sure about Jean's new costume, but I'll take anything over the Green Dress

It's good to see Jean in a costume other than her minidress and party mask. One of the details†I've been loving about the Hickman era is that every character is either wearing one of their best historical costumes or an updated version of it... everyone except Jean, who's been sporting her laziest, most dated look. I like this, though. I actually thought her X-Men Red costume was great, and this appears to just be that costume shifted to Phoenix colours. Interested to read†a Jean-and-Emma-try-to-get-along rescue tale!
