UNCANNY X-Men: First Class

Post by Somebody » Sat Feb 28, 2009 11:57 pm

New verse, same tune :). Scott Grey (the Fin Fang Four writer) is writing, Roger Cruz on art, set "soon after the M'Kraan Crystal saga in "Uncanny" #107-108".

We've known that for a while.

And since your namesake is still writing, I'm about as disinterested as a disinterested thing on a disinterested train going to Disinterestedville.

I'm more interested, however, as to whether we see Cap v5 #51, or Cap #600 - and what happens if, as seems likely, they go for the latter...

"we" have? Hell, first official word I've heard.

Let me have my moment of happy, before the numbing realization that the 600 figure JUST DOESN'T WORK sinks in...

Probably too early for S.R. to return as one might expect from such a monumental milestone, but, hey, wanna bet he's coming back next year on the 60th anniversary?

The policy of including the pre-heroic issue numbers when renumbering a book, but NOT counting POST-heroic issue numbers, is driving my little OCD self crazy. ;)

Marvel included Journey Into Mystery #1-82 when they renumbered the current Thor series at #600. But they DIDN'T include Journey Into Mystery #503-521!

And now, it looks like they're counting Tales To Astonish #1-101 ... but not Incredible Hercules #112-present...

(And hey, it looks like they're also not counting the original Incredible Hulk #1-6! Wacky.)

Man, I haven't been this bamboozled about how re-numbering works since they changed Strange Tales into Dr. Strange for issues #169-183, then years later went back and published Strange Tales #169-188...

I need to get outside more often. ;)

At the very least, he'll be back in time for The First Avenger: Captain America, which is theoretically due for release in 2011.
