Looks good. Cautiously optimistic...

Thats true, looking at Gambit's treatment .... I could have done without Mr and Mrs X. The mini got lame in the end leading to that solo.

Not sure how Iceman is fairing.

Is the teen versions of the original five gone? I hope so but I haven't been keeping up.


Iceman got an 11 issue ongoing, a five issue mini and a one-shot. IMHO he would have been better off without all of them. There was some good stuff early on, but it got less and less as thing progressed. Best thing for me as a fan of the TRUE-Iceman was how obvious Sina Grace made it that current-adult Iceman and the one fans had been reading about for decades are two different people. Fans either didn't notice that stuff, or if they did concluded Grace didn't know Iceman's history or how his powers worked.

Teen Iceman was returned to the past back in the Extermination series. Since Angel had gotten cosmic wings in the Black Vortex story, the current KID version of Cable amputated Mimic's wings and grafted them onto teen Angel to get him back to something approaching how he was. Teen Iceman got his Iceform in the Black Vortex story, which is what he should have had before he was brought to the present anyway if he was the TRUE-Iceman. All of the TD05 had their memories of the future blocked before they were sent back, and then those blocks faded in the present so now the adult selves remember their adventures in the future.

Bunch of crap.

I only care about the eventual return of the TRUE-Iceman now, I have finally given up on the current iteration. He's just used for comic relief and gay stuff, and the fans the character has left seem to only be interested in the gay stuff, or at least that's 99.9% of what they talk about.

No sign of a NEW Advent Calendar again for 2019... but those for 2016 and 2017 both get bumps and stickys!

Magneto is getting another one shot.
As is Jean Grey and Emma Frost.

Sigh. My capacity to care about 'Dawn of X' is declining rapidly. I almost subscribed to both the 'main' X-Men book and Marauders coming out of HoX/PoX and am now glad I didn't. I read the first two issues of X-Men and dropped it like a hot potato. Marauders was better but the characters are too off for me. Only 'Dawn of X' book I have realy liked that I have read, I decided to give the second issue of Fallen Angels a shot after liking the  preview art. It was good. Especially the Kwannon stuff. Right now I'm not pre-ordering anything. I went into HoX/PoX hugely excited and now I just hope this event is over sooner rather than later. :|

Even if it all eventually results in the huge reset I am expecting/hoping for I am not enjoying the journey to getting there. It's funny, I expect that the fans that really like all the HoX/PoX/DoX stuff will likely not like the ultimate end result, and the fans that would like it will probably have dropped most of the books before it gets here. :P

Sometimes I think I'd like to remind Marvel that they actually have other characters in their collection than the ones that are constantly getting attention.

:)
Seriously. But then they eventually remember that and do give those forgotten characters attention... Usually the bad kind.

Happiest of days from the Drakes.

Unused Iceman Issue 8 cover.


I didn't care much for a lot of Wada's covers, but this would have been a good one.

A shame. As a fan and collector they have been an invaluable resource to me and I know many others. I hope they get something comparable up and running soon.
