SDCC 2010: Marvel Comics ‘X-Men’ Panel

X-Men fans united on last weekend for the Marvel Comics X-Men panel at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, where the comics company discussed what will happen in the X-Men titles in the next few months.

Of course being that Second Coming just finished, the consequences of the event were discussed as well as the upcoming event Curse of the Mutants and a little bit of what is involved in this event.

The biggest thing that Marvel wanted to talk about was the reboot of all the Wolverine family books. Wolverine is starting over at issue #1 and the Wolverine Weapon X writer Jason Aaron will be writing it. Oh I know what you’re going to say, what is happening to Daken? Well, don’t worry, Dark Wolverine will be a separate series starting over at #1 as well. X-23 will also start a new ongoing series as well which has only been miniseries thus far and Marjorie Liu will be working on it as well.

Comic Review: X-Men #1

By Jedi of Doom

X-Men #1
Written by: Victor Gischler
Art by: Paco Medina
Cover by: Adi Granov
Marvel Comics
Price $3.99
Release Date: July 9, 2010

This new series is penned by Victor Gischler and drawn by Paco Medina. The artwork in this issue done by Medina reminds me a lot of the artwork done in Uncanny X-Men and in X-Men: Legacy.

My main problem with this issue, the first in the “Curse of the Mutants” story arc, is the story done by Gischlerm which involves the X-Men learning about a new threat to San Francisco, vampires. The book opens with Pixie and former X-Man Jubilee in a café in Union Square where a mysterious man takes his shirt off and begins to smoke and then proceeds to explode covering 24 people with blood, including Jubilee. So it becomes the mission of the X-Men to find out why this event happened.
