I'm really sad that the best title in the current X-Books is being cancelled. Hellions was one of the best books I've read in a while. I had high hopes for New Mutants, X-Force, X-Factor... but none of those really held my attention as much as Hellions did.
I'm curious to see what is coming next for the X-Men, as Hickman starts to exit the books.

Kieron Gillen is coming back to the X-Books, which is fantastic news. His run on Uncanny is so underrated, and I love the work he's been doing on Eternals. Also, Inferno #3 was amazing. I'm sad Hickman is leaving but he's going out with a bang so far.

Marauders annual had Brimstone Love from X-Men 2099 in it! No mention of 2099 but if we could get Skullfire in 616 proper... I'd lose my shit!

I've been pretty down on the direction of the X-books lately and only just started getting caught up on the couple of issues I cared to check out and you guys...

YOU GUYS!

Anyone that knows me should know how [email protected]#$ out of this world stoked I am right now. An Otherworld/King Arthur/Mordred story. With the first ever team up of Shatterstar and Kylun! And Rictor is there. And they're being called Knights. In a whole fantasy adventure storyline.

Are you [email protected]#$ kidding me? I don't even care if this story ends up being total garbage. It's pure joy for me right now.

I'm not reading as many X books after the relaunch. Just X-Force, X-Men, Immortal X-Men, and X-Men: Red.

Immortal and Red are fantastic, though.
