So I'm reading the new X-factor boom and loving it so far. 1 thing bothers me though. How is Northstar's husband allowed on the island?? Thought it was mutants only and as far as I knew he was human.

They made exceptions for Northstar's husband and Jubilee's adopted son. IIRC the rule is that humans can come to Krakoa as long as they are chaperoned by mutants.

Does anyone know where one can find a spoiler-free reading order for Hickman X-Men post PoX/HoX?

I think these two more or less covers everything through X of Swords? They also have the Empyre and King in Black events, which include the X-Men books a little, so you might end up wanting those, as well.

Just read Planet-Size X-Men that they made such a big deal about...
Spoiler! :
So just a few months ago we suddenly had millions more mutants on Earth due to Arrako. This just seems like someone said "We have no [email protected]#$ idea what to do with all these." and another person just said "Toss them on another planet so we can forget about them." "Brilliant!" says another person. [email protected]#$ stupid IMO.

I was pretty blown away by Planet-Size X-Men. It was one of my favorite issues of the year, at least. But I am a sucker for new powerful mutants, Magneto doing cool shit, and Hickman-inspired ideas.

I'm still reading Cable, Hellions, Marauders, New Mutants, SWORD, Way of X, X-Corp, X-Factor, X-Force, and X-Men.

I dropped Children of the Atom, so it joins Fallen Angels, Excalibur, and Wolverine on the shortlist of current X books that didn't make the cut.

I'm meh about Marauders, New Mutants, and X-Corp right now, so I'm playing those titles by ear.

Agreed, Planet Size was cool af to me. I love seeing the mutants finally get to flex instead of constantly being on the verge of extinction. The whole Krakoa era has been such a great time so far, definitely going to end up in my top 3 X-Men runs when all is said and done. I dropped Children of the Atom, Wolverine, and Cable, but am still reading the rest. Excalibur is still pretty bad but I still want to know what's happening to those characters.
