  • Superstar writer Jonathan Hickman teams with legendary artist Alan Davis (X–MEN, EXCALIBUR, AVENGERS) for an eerie tale of adventure! When the X–Men lose contact with the Greymalkin Habitat, it falls to Nightcrawler to lead a mission into the unknown!

With the X-Men now living with the rest of the planet’s mutant population in the new nation-state of Krakoa, the site of Charles Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters has largely been ignored during Dawn of X. However, Nightcrawler’s new mission may have the swashbuckling superhero encounter ghosts from the X-Men’s past as he makes an impromptu homecoming.
