The Trial of Magneto #2

The X-Men have once again risen to become arguably Marvel Comics' biggest franchise in comic books. Their renewed popularity comes, of course, due to the revitalization of the line with Jonathan Hickman's 'Dawn of X' revamp - which has now segued to the next era, 'Reign of X.'

The mutants of Krakoa have entered a new stage that sees them open up for the world this month with the 'Hellfire Gala' event. The nearly-line-wide crossover event will culminate with a new X-Men line-up debuting, a relaunched X-Men #1, a new series titled Inferno by Hickman, and a surprise murder that will result in The Trial of Magneto limited series.

(Wonder who will be murdered? We have a theory on that.)

And outside of just that, Marvel has also begun a multi-pronged effort to have classic X-Men creators return and revisit their most famous storylines - Chris Claremont writing new tie-in stories to both 'Days of Future Past' and his Wolverine limited series, Louise and Walt Simonson prepping to revisit their classic X-Factor run, and Peter David returning for an untold story from his X-Factor era.

And that's not to mention the numerous new X-Men collections coming out at almost a weekly clip, putting recent arcs all in one place and, in some cases, bringing back in print storylines that haven't been available for years.
