Alfred Lord Tennyson said, “It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all” -Someone should tell that to Cyclops! Get your fix on all the heart-wrenching drama in Uncanny X-Men #504! Brought to you by the hard-hitting one, two combination of writers Ed Brubaker (Captain America, Daredevil) and Matt Fraction (Iron Man, Immortal Iron Fist) and superstar artist Terry Dodson (Marvel Knights Spider-Man)! It seemed like a new start in San Francisco is just what the X-Men needed, until an old enemy from the past caught up to them. After the stunning revelation last issue, a red-headed woman from Cyclops’ past appears to have returned from the dead—is Madelyne Pryor alive? But that’s not all: The fallout from MESSIAH COMPLEX rains down on the X-men when the footage of the Alaskan Massacre is leaked to the press! Plus, Colossus encounters an enemy from the Old Country while Angel & Beast discover a hero long thought dormant!

“This book feels both classic, yet very modern…Fraction has been a much needed breath of fresh air and the book seems to have a concrete direction” Paul Steven Brown, TheComicAddiction.Com

“It’s the clarity of the characterizations and the swift pace that make this story work.” -Timothy Callahan,

“Brubaker, Fraction, and Land have managed to really capture my interest and have crafted an accessible book”—Nicholas Slayton, ComicsBulletin.Com

If you haven’t picked up the all-new, all-different Uncanny X-Men this is the place to start! You can’t afford to miss part one of ‘Lovelorn’ the new arc beginning in Uncanny X-Men #504!
