In shocking news, apparently the new situation on Uncanny X-Men with Chuck Austen and Salvador LaRocca won’t last long, as Alan Davis as commented that he and Chris Claremont are taking over Uncanny X-Men!!
UPDATED – Marvel has now confirmed this story.
This would be Claremont’s second return to the title after a short lived return that pretty much blew. I still have no idea what the heck happened in that arc, just that one second Kitty Pryde was leading the team, next moment she’s gone.
It’s also Alan Davis first work on Uncanny X-Men, though he did write and draw a few issues of X-Men and he was the other half of the brainchild of Excalibur along with Claremont.
Claremont and Davis jointly launched Excalibur, which was the first comic book I ever read and I loved every issue. So needless to say, if this is true, I’m ultra psyched.
