Marvel Comics has revealed covers for “Battle of the Atom” throughout the week, including Art Adams’ covers for “All-New X-Men” #16 and “X-Men” #5 — chapters two and three of “Battle for the Atom,” respectively. And with its September solicitations releasing later today, the publisher has drawn back the curtain on Frank Cho’s cover for “X-Men: Battle of the Atom” #1, which the artist teased earlier this month.
“The first issue of this book stands cleanly on its own, so new readers don’t need to worry about being lost,” Marvel Senior Editor Nick Lowe told CBR in April. “Everything will be laid out clearly herein. But, for those completists out there, ‘Uncanny X-Men’ will show you what Dazzler’s up to post-‘X-Termination’ and why that’s important to the rest of the Marvel Universe. As for ‘All-New X-Men,’ they are absolutely central to the event and there will be some lead up there. And there are some things coming up in ‘Wolverine’ that will impact it, too, actually.”
