Marvel Comics has released new previews of upcoming issues of "X-Men" and "Uncanny X-Men." For more previews of Marvel Comics, check out our recent set of Marvel previews, which includes a preview of "Uncanny X-Men" #477. Once you've had your fill of previews, come discuss all things X-men on CBR's own X-Books Forum.
New creative teams have taken over Uncanny X-Men and X-Men and the fans and critics are in agreement: X is where it's at for great stories and eye-popping art. Uncanny X-Men #475, by Ed Brubaker and Billy Tan, and X-Men #188, by Mike Carey and Chris Bachalo, have knocked readers out with their debut issues and the reorders for both books have been coming in at a Civil War-like pace.
Upon learning of the stellar reader reaction to X-Men #188, Mike Carey says, "I've got to admit, I was really nervous about how my first issue was going to be received - even more nervous after Ed's spectacular open on Uncanny last week. You get so close to your own stuff, you never know whether it's any good or not: but now I can breathe again. It's really beyond cool that so many people have given us this vote of confidence. Now we're going to live up to it."
On how he feels, Ed Brubaker admits, "Overwhelmed, is how I feel. I never imagined I'd be writing Uncanny X-Men, even as a kid - I wanted to pencil it once, but that's another story -- so to suddenly be here, and getting such a great response from both fans and retailers is really humbling. And seeing how much people are digging Billy's art is a real bonus. I think Billy will go down as one of the classic X artists by the end of this arc, because all the stuff I've seen from upcoming issues looks even better. We've only scratched the surface of this story, and I can guarantee you, no one sees what's coming up, especially not the X-Men."
