THE CHILDREN OF THE ATOM ARE BACK!
New ongoing series kicking off with a 10-part weekly epic, the flagship X-Men series that started it all is back and better than ever! Starting with a mysterious and tragic disappearance, the X-Men are drawn into what might be…their final adventure?! X-Fan favorite writers Ed Brisson (EXTERMINATION), Matthew Rosenberg (PHOENIX RESURRECTION) and Kelly Thompson (MR. & MRS. X) and all-star artists Mahmud Asrar (X-MEN RED), R.B. Silva (X-MEN BLUE), Yildiray Cinar (WEAPON X) and Pere Pérez (ROGUE AND GAMBIT) join forces to bring you…X-MEN DISASSEMBLED?!
ISSUE #1 – 72 PGS./Rated T+ …$7.99
ISSUE #2-3 – 32 PGS. (EACH)/Rated T …$3.99 (EACH)
tl;dr – issue one costs a fortune at cover price then goes up with the variants while Uncanny X-Men # 2 and # 3 will return to $3.99. Sounds like a steal but also at the same time, it feels like we’re being robbed. But then again, I didn’t complain when Action Comics came out or when Amazing Spider-Man # 800 came out so yeah, let the good times roll I guess.
Let’s track back a little though and look at the covers for Uncanny X-Men’s issue 2 and 3.
Issue 2 features Jamie Madrox aka Multiple Man, who “died” during Death of X but looks like he’s alive and kicking once more (note to self and readers, clues may be found in the ongoing Madrox book).
Issue 3 features several long missing characters like Legion (because he’s busy with his TV show), Pixie ad Rockslide from “New X-Men”.
Despite the price hike, will you still be picking up Uncanny X-Men # 1?
