Re: X-treme x-men
Agreed, it is pretty strange. I'd put it down to them all being in the cheaper 2.99 range however I think there's a few of those in the NOW line-up as well.
Who knows how marvel make these sort of decisions. I'd hazard a guess that the .1 issue mentioned above will have a NOW logo smacked on it and advertised as the new jumping on point. Avengers Assemble #9 is being advertised in a similar way, the only difference being the change in creative team I guess.
I'm rambling now, it is very strange anyway.
