Marvel Says: FINAL ISSUE!

It’s time to raise a glass to Dani Moonstar, Sunspot, Cipher, Warlock, Sunspot and X-Man in this series-ending issue!

Vince Says: The New Mutants have done some serious growing up under Abnett, Lanning and their predecessor, Zeb Wells, with two of their members (Cannonball & Sunspot) set to join the actual Avengers. It was great to see these fan-favorite characters back together and I look forward to seeing where they go in this new era.

Wolverine & The X-Men #19

Marvel Comics
Story: Jason Aaron

Marvel Says: The second year of the most talked-about new X-Book starts here!

One of the students is on death’s door and the faculty must 1) try to keep them alive and 2) find who did it!

With one of the teachers on the outs, a new one must be hired. Who will it be?

Who is the new student at the school?

Vince Says: Jason Aaron is a monster. And we all love him for it.

X-Men Legacy #275

Marvel Comics
Story: Christos Gage

Marvel Says: THE END OF AN ERA!

Last issue, Magneto made Rogue a daunting offer. In this FINAL ISSUE of X-MEN: LEGACY, Rogue faces the repercussions of her decision!

Vince Says: It took several decades, but this comic finally made me like Rogue as a character. Also, despite numerous retitlings, the comic that started as (Adjectiveless) X-Men in 1992 has run for 275 straight issues without renumbering, a feat we may not see again for a long time, if ever.
