Wolverine and the X-Men is Cancelled at Issue #42… Sort of

Wolverine and the X-Men, which I think had the longest running volume at the moment, has been mercifully cancelled at issue #42…

Kind of. Sort of.

Because really, they are just rebranding it and Wolverine and the X-Men #1 came out this week.

Wolverine and the X-Men started off with a bang, even if the premise is kinda fucking stupid (Wolverine as a headmaster? I only kinda buy it when it started and didn’t buy it at all in the end). Unfortunately, around the time of AvX, the series went to complete shit and was generally a big waste of time.

I honestly do not know why I bothered reading it. Maybe because it was a flagship title? I mean, I kind of liked Quire and I wanted to see more of Evan/Kid Apocalypse but all in all the series pretty much blew.

It continues Jason Aaron schizo ways with books. He jumps from fucking epic (Black Panther Secret Invasion Tie in, Thor: God of Thunder) to terrible (WatXM, AvX) so frequently that it is hard to get a handle on him.

The new WatXM has a new writer so I will probably give it a chance and probably be disapponted. Aaron has moved on to Amazing X-Men which is off to a good start.

So… Wolverine and the X-Men Volume 1… RIP
