Default OH MARVEL!

Marvel is cancelling Uncanny X-Men and relaunching with a new #1.

Why? Well, Cyclops and Wolverine finally fight over clashing ideology and people get sad.

Still not DC relaunch stupid, but the ball is rolling.

Is this change going to take, or is this another Age of Apocalypse type stunt? And speaking of AoA, talk about something that hasn't aged well...

It had some good moments, and was a sort of solid idea, but you're right when you say the aesthetic is sort of dated.

They're trying to pull a Bendis and spin a brand-new take out of it. Where Wolverine, Blade, Devil Dinosaur, Deadpool, Franklin Richards, Machine Man and Jarvis can be on a team.

That team would actually make me give a shit about X-Men again. Hell, Marvel could stop publishing all their other titles and release 52 titles featuring Wolverine, Blade, Devil Dinosaur, Deadpool, Franklin Richards, Machine Man and Jarvis in all sorts of hijinks, and I'd buy 'em in a shot.

No such luck. I hold Marvel to a higher standard though, as they are able to learn from their mistakes and pull something out of nothing. An ability that DC lost in the Reagan Years and never got back.

That being said...the X-Books are selling about as low as they did in the 70s currently.

Doesn't surprise me - X-Men were riding high for so long, a drop in interest was inevitable, Wolverine or no Wolverine. Plus, so many X-titles with so many concurrent storylines and characters really makes those titles difficult for new readers to get into (how many are there now anyway?).

A few years ago I tried to get back into the books. I bought one issue and decided it wasn't worth the effort. Not at the 4 bucks they were charging for 20 pages of content. Trades are much better.

Generally I don't follow titles anymore; I follow creators. I'm interested in Grant Morrison and maybe Warren Ellis and that's about it right now. Comics just aren't fit to wrap fish in anymore.

Come to think of it, I miss the random weirdness from the 80s, when Marvel used to put out a bunch of different books and different kinds of books. But that was before the industry took a dive and everything got grim'n'gritty. There's just no room for a character like Brother Voodoo anymore.

Same here re: trades. Easier and cheaper to wait a couple of months and snag the trade so I can polish it off in a sitting or two.

I tried getting into some of the recent Spider-Man books, but was kind of "meh" about 'em. Yes, they do recapture some of the pre-marriage feel, but a lot of it just feels like a retread of stuff I read before. Kind of cool to see him as a member of the FF now, though.

Brother Voodoo took over for Dr. Strange for about a year. It didn't work out. Just ended his reign about six months ago.

My main issue with the superhero comic books? It was 20 pages of content where 15 of the pages were huge splash pages. I remember when it took 15-20 minutes to read a comic book because there was THAT MUCH STORY to get through...by the mid 90s, you could read a comic in about 5 minutes. It was ridiculous. I blame Liefeld for a LOT of that.

I enjoyed the Messiah Complex.

But then I'm a disgusting Cable fanboy.

Jimmy and Whilce and Todd and the rest of their XTREME BAND OF AWESOME DUDESHIP are also culpable in ushering in the splashapalooza.
