Re: Official (adjectiveless) X-MEN Discussion Thread
I'm hoping the second story arc for this title turns out to be good, but if fans dislike the vampire story enough, this title might go the way of Young X-Men. It launched on the heels of a big Messiah crossover, sold really well for its first 3 or so issues, turned fans off with its crappy first storyline, and sales dropped so low that it couldn't make it past the 12th issue.
However, this is being launched as a core X-Men title. Fans might buy it on principle. There's no telling which way this will go, but something tells me this will be a very shaky new title.
The Doctor: "SHOUT?! I DON'T SHOUT!! People who have to resort to shouting to get what they want are merely demonstrating the inherent paucity of their argument! It's something THAT I NEVER NEVER--"
Peri: "ALRIGHT, DOCTOR!!"
The Doctor: "Point made, I think."
