Mutants. They are on the verge of extinction. Since the end of House of M, there has not been a single mutant birth and each death brings the mutant population closer to zero. In June's X-Men: Endangered Species One-Shot, another mutant's name gets crossed off the list.

Written by X-Men scribe Mike Carey and featuring the vibrant art of Scot Eaton, this one-shot lays the foundation for everything to come in all the X-Men titles, including this fall’s X-Men crossover event.

“This is an elegy - and a story where, for once, action gets put on the back burner” said Carey. “We're looking at a different kind of courage here, and a different kind of crisis. Everything over the past year has built towards this point. This is like the prelude to a symphony. And the symphony is going to have cannons in it, but the prelude is in a different key altogether.”

This self-contained, double-sized one-shot provides the perfect jumping-on point for fans new and old, defining the current status of the X-Men and thrusting forward into a bold new direction for all of Marvel’s mutants!
