The artist will unite with Brian Michael Bendis on the new series, as was previously teased by Marvel Comics.
The former Wolverine and the X-Men penciller revealed artwork (shown above) for the new series on his blog.
"Looks like the cats out of the bag (sic)," he wrote. "It's me an Bendis on a new launch of the series.
"This was a tough one as i was really enjoying my time on WX but Brian asked for me to help him launch the new Uncanny and how do you turn down that offer?
"Launches are tough as there's a lot of ground to cover to get things rolling. Characters are re-imagined, writing styles adjusted to, locations established. Its a tough learning curve that typically takes a few issues to figure out and grow comfortable with. We're still very early into the creative part so hard for me to comment on exactly what to expect.
"The daring part is that the tone of the book - feels like, its early - will be a little darker. Characters powers have been 'adjusted' as a result of the Phoenix five fall out and I was asked to redesign costumes for the entire cast. Everyone. Plus, as of today, there are two 'new' mutants.
"It's a big jump that I'm sure will turn a few off but, we're betting on, that most will welcome and enjoy. One thing that you can count on Is that Brian will always give you something worth reading. He never fails to be interesting. Launch is two issues in February."
Bendis is also writing the new flagship X title All-New X-Men.
Marvel had previously said that Uncanny X-Men would not return under its new initiative.
The title is yet to receive an official announcement.
