I don’t know about you, but I’m a little tired of only hearing about DC after the last week and a half, so Marvel has seen fit to release a bit of news themselves. Unfortunately, it’s not necessarily the kind of news I want to hear.
On Thursday, Marvel revealed that they would be ending one of their flagship titles when Uncanny X-Men comes to an end in October with issue #544. The issue will be written by Kieron Gillen with art by Greg Land and will tie into whatever happens in the upcoming X-Men: Schism event.
Chapter one of the Dark Angel Saga begins in June in Uncanny X-Force 11!
X-Force is Wolverine’s elite hit squad of mutants now in chaos due to Warren Worthington giving in fully to the darkness and becoming the Arc Angel. In an attempt to find a cure the team finds themselves in the Age of Apocalypse! No cure for Worthington will be found before the X-Force does battle with the Amazing X-Men though.
All of this sounds pretty melodramatic huh? Everything old is new again in the Marvel U these days. Hopefully the story will be entertaining enough to make it worth it. Rick Remender will be writing with art by Mark Brooks and Dean White. Check out these early images and if you’re so inclined grab Uncanny X-Force 11 on June 6, 2011.
