Good Gods!!

I just pulled up some lists to see what the X-Book count is going to be up to by the end of Summer.

Uncanny, Adjectiveless, New, Excalibur, Exiles, Distrct X, Cable/Deadpool, XM: The End, Wolverine, X-Statix (Cancelled, thankfully), Madrox, Rogue, Gambit, X-Force, Jubilee, Ultimate X, Emma Frost, Mystique, Alpha Flight (Now a Marvel Heroes title), Astonishing X-Men, Weapon X, Starjammers, X-Men Unlimited

So, even not counting X-Statix and Alpha Flight... Heck, let's knock off X-Force and Madrox, since they're just limited series here... That's STILL 19 books.

Yeesh.

Lack of Jubilation

I think the "Jubilee" ongoing series is the straw that is breaking this X-Fan's back. I'm long past buying every X-related title, but this one finally has me shaking my head and asking why.

I love how the writer has Jubilee moving to LA, in California, and how she must "adjust to this new environment". Yes, being absolutely, completely clueless about the most basic thing about Jubes gives me big chunks of faith in the writer of her ongoing series.

Not to mention I find the art to be crap, but my manga/anime hate is well-documented at this point in time. Look! She's inherited Reed Richard's stretching powers, or lost a few ribs, and all the organs in her stomach! Although, this is far less annoying than the standard Marvel Manga.

I'm probably just bitter Jean never even got a limited series all her own. =P

Quick Replies

Those new quick reply boxes that LJ is using?

I like 'em.

This seems to be a minority opinion, and they definitely need some work to be done, but overall, I enjoy their presence, and hope they tweak them further to solve the issues I *do* have with them.
