Now with TWICE the X-Men!
Marvel will soon have TWO X-Men titles:
It’s the old two-for-one gambit as Marvel announced today that it will be replacing the long-running Uncanny X-Men title with two books as the X-Men split into two contentious groups as a result of the Jason Aaron-penned X-Men Schism series, which debuts in July. Aaron and Chris Bachalo’s new Wolverine and the X-Men #1 will debut in October focusing on a group led by Logan with a lineup that, according to Marvel, “no one will see coming.”
The Uncanny X-Men, which will end its 48-year run with issue #544 (see “Uncanny X-Men Ending”), will return in November with The Uncanny X-Men #1 by Kieron Gillen and artists Carlos Pacheco and Greg Land. Gillen, who is writing the final issues of the old Uncanny X-Men, sees the two new X-Men series as the natural result of the events in Schism as the tensions between Wolverine and Cyclops lead to a Civil War-like split between the various members of the group.
