Yea id pretty much rather have Silva on art than Yu. Not that I dont like Yu, I just dont think his art fits as well as Silva's did.

Either way, hope this isnt a sign of what we can expect for the future. Just make the book a monthly release if need be. I dont have the cash to shell out for all these damn X books lol.

They should get someone better than Yu.
it's honestly kind of ridiculous that they chose yu in the first place. they're clearly investing so much in this series. and they pick yu to relaunch the #1? and ongoing? especially when they have so much talent floating around. gotta wonder if this was a hickman decision that he just blew or something.

Goddamn. I'm okay with this considering I'll probably be down to 3-4 X books a month, but it's still bullshit. Yu has gone waaaay downhill and the art doesn't really fit X-Men anymore. Maybe X-Force, but even that is barely better.

Absolutely. Before they announced people on the Dawn books I was holding out hope that Dautermann was on X-Men or Uncanny.
At least Silva is coming back to do art.
When is this happening? My dream is Larraz on X-Men followed by Dautermann but Silva is a damn good alternative.

Why are people blaming Yu when the article implies it was delayed due to changes in the story?

Y'know for all the talk of King getting fired off Batman (which iirc only came from BC) who wants to bet it's actually just so King can give his run the ending that he wants while Tynion can lead into 5G/NuCrisis. Like King and DC can do what they both want without stepping on each other's toes, especially since BatCat will now probably be released alongside that stuff with the delays.

Think its issue 5 or 6.

It says it was changed on one issue, 4 I think. Not saying it is for sure Yu, just joking around personally. I mean they have multiple artists on the book going forward.

Mainly because King was wanting to do 100+ issues on the actual mainline Batman book (not a spin off), AND there was a story like a few days before that about how he finally got his ending approved from DC that was a hard sell.

I mean, I do feel like BC was right on this one. I dunno if fired is the right word, but he was clearly moved off the book and given Batman and Catwoman as a replacement.

That's kinda the same thing. King being kicked off Batman so they can go a different direction while he gets to finish up his story in limited series. It's just now we have a better idea of what DC might be doing through them hyping up the next Crisis and other rumors.

I also think I might have picked the wrong book to start the Metal reading order. Let's see, going in anyway.

i can't speak for other folk but my comment had nothing to do wit hthe delay. i'm always fine with delays. im more just generally critical of the decision to have yu as the main series penciller in general. i'm not a fan of his modern work. i think he's middle of the road at best anymore. and dont take me wrong. middle of the road is A-OK. just not on the best selling comic in the best month for comics in years, if you catch my drift.

I'm clowning Yu because I knew he wouldn't be able to do an ongoing and his art isn't good enough for this book post Silva and Larazz. The dream is Larazz rotating with Dautermann. Damn.

It would be pretty evil to have Larraz go straight from HoX to X-Men lol. He's going to do more X-books though.

So I went to a audiology clinic yesterday to test out my hearing in both of my ears. I had to go before I could see an ENT specialist as it was required so *shrugs*. My audiological eval report came in the mail today and it turns out that I have "mild to severe conductive hearing loss". It's not too bad and it's treatable and there's a chance that my hearing can be fully restored (or at least back to normal levels) so yay for that. On top of that I have an infection behind the ear drum, and I'm in constant pain and I have no antibiotics or ibuprofen to stabilize it. Oh well. Oh and tinnitus sucks.

My journey to full recovery continues.

Hey, this actually sounds like an improvement after the last prognosis! So silver lining I guess...

I'm betting he's doing the first big X-Men event.
God I hope so. That would be glorious.

I think I only have 1 issue left of Fatal Attractions and it's amazing how big of a dick Professor X is. I always knew he was but it's almost like he's going out of his way to have Kitty saying "ok boomer" unironically. He's hugely worthless and when he does pop it's just to tell everyone what they've messed up even if a couple issues before he fried Magneto's brain.

I think part of it was that WB/ATT want movie material.

Tynion will probably start off well, but he doesn't have a new #1 or the power of a Rebirth/New 52 behind him.

I wasn't aware books lived or died by their praise in this very thread, huh TIL.
Overrated and underrated are terms that have such a are vague and largely meaningless critical terms.

Hideo Kojima is the Tom King of video games.
Or the Japanese David Cage
Hey now at least the music might be dope

But yes RIP Moon Knight

seriously if this had been done under anyone other than Feige I might have hope for the Moon Knight show to go for it in the way his best comics go for it, but this is a creator who already has a track record of successfully turning big time comics into the usual premium online television streamable puzzlebox #content, working under the producer that turned Marvel boring

At the very least Dautermann appears to be doing a series of single character focused one-shots w/Hickman, so that’s something
