^^Yeah right....

Unfortunately there seems to be no sign of an Art Of Days of Future Past book or any other DOFP related merchandise for that matter.

However, i did see this interesting looking book that Rowman & Littlefield Publishers are releasing in April which has the following description:
Quote:
X-Men and the Mutant Metaphor Race and Gender in the Comic Books

Pages: 208
Size: 6 x 9
By Joseph J. Darowski

First appearing in 1963, The Uncanny X-Men comic book had a rough start, lasting until 1970 when the series was cancelled due to low sales. Following a relaunch in 1975, however, the comic book found new popularity thanks to intricate plots by Chris Claremont and the artwork of John Byrne. Within a few years, The Uncanny X-Men was one of Marvel comics’ bestselling series, and over the decades has become one of the most successful and popular franchises in comic book history. Spin-off titles, mini-series, multi-media adaptations, and a massively expanded cast of characters followed. One of the reasons for the success of the X-Men franchise has been the powerful “mutant metaphor” which enhances the stories with cultural significance and explorations of themes such as societal prejudice and discrimination.

In X-Men and the Mutant Metaphor: Race and Gender in the Comic Books, Joseph Darowski provides a thorough analysis of The Uncanny X-Men. In this volume, Darowski provides the historical background of the comic, dividing the long-running series into distinct eras. Each chapter includes a discussion of the creators and general storylines, followed by a thorough look at principal members of the X-Men as well as a close reading of key stories. The final chapter includes a statistical look at the literal use of race and gender in the entire series, rather than the metaphorical or thematic ways such issues have been addressed in stories.

For this study, the author interviewed several comic book creators for their insights, and dozens of images from the comic books are used to highlight analyses throughout the book. Of particular significance are statistics the author provides about the race and gender of every hero, villain, and supporting character that has appeared in the comic book series. By delving into the historical background of the series and offering close examinations of characters and stories, X-Men and the Mutant Metaphor illuminates an important aspect of this popular culture phenomenon

If they want to follow the footsteps of The Avengers, then they should release action figures of different sizes.

Hey, so the good news is that Marvel Heroes is releasing Magneto to tie in with the film. As somebody who doesn't collect action figures, I could care less.

I can say with near certainty that this will not happen. Figures take months to produce and hit shelves, if they were coming any time soon we'd have heard about it.

Well correct me if I'm wrong but the name "X-Jet" is only being used in the movies.
