In true “X” fashion, Marvel’s favorite mutants can never catch a break. The latest issue of Uncanny X-Men has ushered in the all new Manifest Destiny and kicks it off with a bang! Due to overwhelming demand, Marvel is pleased to announce that Uncanny X-Men #500 has sold out at Diamond (however may still be available at a retail level) and is going back to print with Uncanny X-Men #500 Second Printing Variant. With a cover featuring the interior art of superstar artist Greg Land, this issue is the beginning of a new era in a brand new home—San Francisco! Eisner award winner Ed Brubaker and superstar, Eisner-nominated co-writer Matt Fraction have planted the X-Men deep in the heart of San Francisco and there’s no telling what’s in store!

The reviews are in and everyone’s clamoring for more!

Greg McElhatton of ComicBookResources.com says "Uncanny X-Men #500 feels like the X-Men comics I read many years ago…due to the high level of excitement and fun that they've infused into their comic.”

Ron Richards of iFanboy.com also exclaims “I fell for the fanboy-ish glee I get from an exciting turn in the lives of Marvel's Merry Mutants.”

Daniel Crown IGN.com raves that “Fraction and Brubaker's script has a weird charm to it. They tell the kind of quick-hitting yarn that doesn't exist in the modern world of superhero comics”

Steven Bari Comicsbulletin.com proclaims “Brubaker and Fraction have successfully put these children of the atom face forward with the task of saving themselves from extinction and building a community out of a population smaller than most Midwestern towns. Can they succeed? Who else will stand in their way? It's a great time to be an X-fan!”

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Uncanny X-Men as well as all other X-titles as excitement builds around Manifest Destiny and what the future holds for everyone’s favorite group of mutants!
