    Wow, 60 issues. That's pretty good in this era, where it seems like most writers barely make it to 20 issues.

    And of course they feel the need to "relaunch" it.

    It's just a new writer taking over, it doesn't sound like it's gonna be a relaunch.

    Re-number now, and then return to original numbering when Kamala hit's #100.

    I wonder if it will have the legacy numbering like the old-time books do.

    It looks like it will based on the cover they released.

    Oh, OK I guess I was mistaken. The only article I read before my other post was one about G. Willow Wilson's farewell, and it didn't mention the new title or renumber, or if it did I missed it.

    Jonathon Hickman to take over X-Men with two new titles following the current storylines. As his Fantastic Four and Avengers runs (Both essentially culminating in the Secret Wars event in 2016) show, Hickman never takes over a title without a pre-determined plan and a definite story to tell. Frankly, I haven't been this excited about an X-Men title since Joss Whedon's run was announced.

    Can't he just take over the existing title?

    So, one of the worst Avengers writers of my life time is taking over X-Men? Well, there goes one of my favorite Marvel comic lines. Here comes a few years of incoherent bullshit from Grant Morrison jr (seriously, Hickman is as pretentious as Morrison, while somehow being more incoherent). Actually, thats unfair to Morrison, because at least grant Morrison had a few good comic runs before he permanently stuck his head up his own ass. Hickman basically just had a mediocre Fantastic Four run before he just started producing word vomit.

    How does a guy write the most incoherent pile of shit that Marvel has possibly ever produced, and then keep getting more work? Trying to read Hickman's Infinity event and his Avengers run as they came out made me question my grasp on the English language, because while I could identify individual words, it was all gibberish together. The man loathes coherent story telling more then Rob Liefeld hates feet. Just trying to read the wikipedia page for Infinity is headache inducing.

    Outside of Nick "I make everyone a Nazi" Spencer, and maybe Rick Remender, Hickman is the worst regular Marvel writer, and now we're going to have several years where the X-Men line is unreadable. Marvel does this every so often, where the X-Men and Avengers books go through cycles of being written by shitty writers and basically become worthless for a few years. The last cycle was Mark Waid and his baby Avengers making that entire line unreadable, and now since that ended a while ago I guess its the X-Men's turn to be shit.

    I mean, the current X-Men situation is pretty shit already (Oh, mutants are going extinct again, it must be a year that ends in a number), but at least the main book is readable and has a few slightly interesting hooks. Now its going to be Hickman pulling shit out of his rear, and probably bringing back some of his garbage OC's from his Avengers/Infinity run, because god knows no one else has wanted to use them.

    Now that Hickman has gotten the K5 seal of approval, I know it will be an epic run.:guffaw:

    Has anyone picked up Spider-Man: Life Story? I just finished the second issue and it's pretty damn good. Like an extended What If...

    For the past 4 days Marvel has been counting down to a Spider-Man reveal and today we get it, JJ Abrams and his Henry Abrams will be writing a new Spider-Man miniseries which will also feature art by Sara Pichelli, covers by Oliver Coipel and colors by Dave Stewart. The miniseries introduces a new villain known as Cadaverous, and "shows Peter Parker in a way you haven't seen him before" accoring to JJ.
    I'm a pretty big fan of JJ Abrams, so I'm pretty curious about this. I'm not positive, but I think this might be his first comic.

    I actually hated the 1st issue, liked the 2nd issue, and loved the 3rd. I like the trajectory of my enjoyment so far!
