Jack Kirby and Chic Stone continue their admirable work on this young series, as the X-Men encounter a being known as the Stranger. First spotted walking in the sky, the Stranger meets Magneto and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and a shaky alliance is formed, meanwhile the X-Men are searching for this odd newcomer around the city. It turns out the Stranger is a powerful being from outer space that is planning to subjugate the Earth, he takes Magneto and Toad captive and disappears, as the X-Men recover from this event Cerebro warns them that there is a powerful mutant threat headed straight for their headquarters.



This near-mint X-Men #11 is QES-certified for its impeccable staple placement as well as the phenomenal coloration.

Artist Information

Jack Kirby is called 'The King of Comics' for a reason, during his career that spanned six decades he gave us many of most iconic characters the medium would ever see. From his introduction of Captain America at the height of World War II it was clear he wasn't your ordinary comics artist. But it was his creative explosion at Marvel Comics in the 1960's that cemented his legacy, over a short period of time Kirby would give us The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Hulk, The X-Men, Thor, Ant-Man and Nick Fury just to name a few. Kirby would then go to DC and create his Fourth World, introducing Darkseid, Mister Miracle, The New Gods and a host of cosmic supporting players. Long live The King.
