Comments

  1. KenOchalek KenOchalek says:

    Wow, SIX titles double shipping!

  2. Jesse1125 Jesse1125 says:

    most exciting? Cyke and Storm kiss? Great cover,looks to be an interesting arc

  3. thompsonlive thompsonlive says:

    Wow I had no idea how many x-men books there are. Do all of these really sell that much? I only get Uncanny X-men, Uncanny X-Force, and Wolverine. Cant imagine spending the money every month to get all of these.

  4. mrfrost mrfrost says:

    The Runaways are back! Don’t normally buy Dark Wolverine, but I might have to just for them. Also excited about New Mutants. Betweeen David Lafuente and now David Lopez, that book has been getting some pretty good artists lately.

    • ed209AF ed209AF says:

      Right? i wasnt even aware there was a dark wolverine book till a few weeks ago. I think because i hate daken so much, i was mentally blocking it out. But when the runaways to pop up, i’ll make the purchase.

  5. torippu torippu says:

    Uncool, Marvel, really uncool – double shipping so many of these books. Guess I won’t be trying out as many of these as I thought that I would be.

    Add in the BS that is Fear Itself 7.1, 7.2 & 7.3 all shipping in the same month and I may be skipping a bunch of the Marvel books that I love in favor of some of the new 52.

    • KenOchalek KenOchalek says:

      Yeah, as someone who’s been holding out hope for Fear Itself to really hit a game-winning home run in the ninth, I’m more than a little annoyed that it looks like this thing is going to extra innings. Yeah, 7.1,.7.2, and 7.3 have top talent on them, but with people’s comics budgets so tight these days, announcing it so late in the game seems like kind of a dick move as in “Yeah, I know we told you this was a seven issue event….but we kinda meant ten.”

      I don’t like to bitch (because its only comics) and I don’t usually truck with the “I’m a Marvel/DC guy”, but with all the double shipping books, the unannounced slip to 20 story pages for $3.99, and a bait and switch like this, the only thing keeping me reading Marvel books is the creative talent.

  6. How exactly does Astonishing X-Men fit into the universe? I’ve never really been sure of it’s purpose.
    Don’t see Idie in the Generation Hope cover..
    And I kind of hope it’s Rahne who dies

    • j206 j206 says:

      I don’t see the point of Astonishing either. It’s felt kind of pointless ever since the Whedon run ended.

    • KenOchalek KenOchalek says:

      I think Astonishing has become the X-Men: Creator’s Showcase. A creator comes in, tells one story that is essentially in continuity without truly tying into the other books, then gets out of Dodge for the next guy. Which is kind of what Whedon did, except his story lasted several years and had some impact on continuity.

    • j206 j206 says:

      Yeah, I can see that. But it’s only worthwhile if the stories are good. And from the post-Whedon issues I’ve read along with everything I’ve seen said about the ones I haven’t, the stories have been very uninspiring.

  7. Fett02 Fett02 says:

    I really want to check out the new team on Hope, Pak on Astonishing, Skottie’s Magneto mini, and especially the Runaways in Daken, but every other book I’m getting seems to be double shipping so I probably can’t now.

  8. Firevine Firevine says:

    I hope that cover to Wolverine and the X-Men is indeed the final version, because it’s friggin’ awesome.

  9. Kelly Kelly (@annaluna) says:

    Every time I think “this is the month I start regularly buying single issues of a few x-men titles instead of poaching trades from friends” I read a list like this and my head hurts. It all looks great, but I think i’m headed back to poaching :)

  10. I’m a big X-Men fan, but all of this looks…. really, really terrible.

  11. Conor Kilpatrick Conor Kilpatrick (@cskilpatrick) says:

    With no Greg Land in sight it looks like I’m back on UNCANNY X-MEN…

  12. j206 j206 says:

    Interesting to see Cyclops here with silhouetted characters behind him. The first Uncanny teaser made it look like Emma was the leader of the book with no Cyke looking character behind her. Marvel is being rather shifty with all these silhouette reveals.

  13. CountAbyss CountAbyss says:

    Sticking with Wolverine & the X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, Uncanny X-Force for sure.

    New Mutants is on shaky grounds for me. Legacy might be worth picking up because it’s Carey’s last arc and to see who follows up.

    X-Men and Magneto look cool, but not sure I will get…

    The rest….can’t really say I care…

  14. Bryce31 Bryce31 says:

    I love that New Mutants cover by Pearson. It’s great.

  15. Yea, I’m done with X-Men. Marvel is just taking advantage of their fans when they’re double shipping 6 books. I’m on the lookout for an interesting team book, now. I’m thinking either Thunder Agents or an indie.

    • Batusi Batusi says:

      @nukethewhalesagain if you’re looking for a good indie team book look no further than Image’s The Intrepids! Awesome art, great characters, plus tons of action and humor.

  16. diebenny diebenny says:

    A lot of good has been goin on with the X-Men side of Marvel lately. I’m not getting a bunch of these, but the ones I am getting I am very excited about.

    Also: Who is the new writer on Generation Hope? Gillen got me hooked on those characters so I’d like to keep up with them.

  17. TheFlashr TheFlashr says:

    Just way too many books, do they want us to only read X-universe books? Perhaps Marvel (they’re not the only ones *cough 52! cough*) should take this tip from me; most comic book readers do not have an infinite supply of money.

  18. mikeandzod21 mikeandzod21 says:

    Im amazed Legacy is still continuing after all of this…i mean seriously, you end Uncanny but keep the title that has been struggling for relevance for like the last four years? Strange choice. Also, hurray for Jason Aaron getting amazing artists!

    • KenOchalek KenOchalek says:

      I think they announced that 259 kicks off Mike Carey’s last arc on Legacy — not sure if they’ve said anything about the future of the book.

  19. jackarandos says:

    are these all going digital after schism? if so i will proabbly buy every one except x-factor and astonishing. Even if i have to get the actual issue im getting daken for runaways

  20. y2kkev y2kkev says:

    Why does Colossus have that Juggernaut helmet! What telepath is he trying to keep out!

  21. Dans07sti says:

    I’ll be getting all of these I love xmen !

  22. samlankey samlankey says:

    It is a bit much for xbooks. Looks like no one dies for Schism though.

  23. Neeks Neeks says:

    im for sure on board and continuing with Uncanny X-Force and Wolverine and im also going to start buying Wolverine and the X-men when it comes out. Might have to start reading the new Uncanny X-Men as well but its going to be hard to fit it into my budget

  24. Limitless Limitless says:

    Aaron writing Fat Cobra?! Yes please!

  25. player1 player1 says:

    I’ll be more than happy with Uncanny X-Force and X-23.

  26. thehangman thehangman says:

    waaaaaaaaaaay too many x-books. narrow it down to (at most) four, PLEASE.

  27. stasisbal stasisbal says:

    Looking back over this list it really is too much. I’m sure each book is profitable enough and has a fanbase that would be upset if they were cancelled. There are a lot of talented creators here. The post-Schism setup sounds interesting and I’d like to read more X-Men. But there are so many X-Men team books now. Many are 3.99 and double ship. The line is so bloated I kinda want to avoid it altogether. I’ll probably just keep reading X-Force and X-Factor and ignore the rest.
