I guess it will be a 6 issue mini that reintroduces this new team of X-Men? 
March 5, 2011 10:29 pm I too feel the same way about how DC has much better canon, out of continuity stories. But I'm hoping that Marvel's Astonishing line is what we're looking for. The line seems to be a replacement for the second version of Marvel Knights. It would probably be great thing to have to help lure in new readers.

Anybody that says they want to read Batman, I point them at Long Halloween. But if someone wants to read Spider-Man I don't have a great place to point them to. I would probably end up saying Brand New Day or Slott's Big Time.

Hey thanks for responding to my question. I seem to have sparked some dialog.
Publishing is one thing I know very little about (and grammar). I guess I never thought of them trimming two pages, that the creative teams behind them would possibly be getting a tenth less pay per issue. I don't seem to remember that coming up in any of the press releases.

I guess the smartest thing Marvel ever did was to include issues with each figure from the Marvel Legends toy line. I guess thats the best way to get floppies into new readers hands. 

@devinclancy I guess I never did the math to figure out that losing those two pages would actually really mean droping six additonal pages. So they are basically filling them in with extra ads.

I just wish they would take a more active intrest in getting new readers.
