If people are interested in checking out Mike Carey's awesome run, Marvel just released a Complete Collection a few months ago called X-Men Marauders. Its got probably my all time favorite X-Men roster. After that he started X-Men Legacy, and a fun little Alt U mini event called Age of X.

Praying for an X-Men sale while the CMXU 50% off is still going lol.

This was during the dark ages for me when I stopped reading. I’ll catch up with this.

Thanks for this! I had no idea where to start with his run. Added it to my wishlist, and will be waiting for some kind of sale.

New Hickman Interview!

He doesn’t say much about the books, but I do like his comments on process and he hard confirms the story is not about an alt-universe nor is it time travel.

What’s really interesting and relevant though is the preview pages...



So we have Moira (during what I’m guessing is the 1960s, going by the clothing) reading Tarot cards and then looking pensively at someone (Charles, I would guess.) Ots interesting that a geneticist would be interested in divination, eh?

The two major characters from that first teaser are on the cards, as you see. The lady has a fleur de lis as the symbol on hers, and that can and does represent all kinds of stuff in history/Catholicism. Speaking of flowers...



We see Storm, Colossus, Iceman, and Armor planting/picking what I still think are Stargazer lilies or a fictional version Hickman came up with for this story.

Exciting times!

Ditto to X-Men Marauders. Mike Carey had the second longest consecutive run on the X-books after Claremont and it’s gone criminally under appreciated in recent years.

In an interview earlier this week, Hickman gave that run high praise and said it was one of his favorites. Elements of the run like the Children of the Vault, The Corridor, and Angelfire Project that Carey came up with sound like something Hickman is going to echo in a way as he’s mentioned things like the Kardashev scale.

Pretty sure that’s nightcrawler and not iceman. Look at the fingers, blue pants, and posture. Plus nightcrawler could get to the moon a lot easier then iceman could.

I like how that interview is mostly them trying to get spoilers from Hickman. Those questions are not very good.

Of course he refers to Mike Carey (my favorite writer, check out his Felix Castor novels and The Unwritten, truly awesome stuff), Supernovas was such a great run.

Man my penis can get just so erect, bring me this book already!

Finished Well's New Mutants - what an amazing run.

Going through the first 30 or so issues of David's X-Factor and then will do a quick re-read of Supernovas.

That feels like some substantial x-catch up before Hickman.

Very much interested in this. Hype's rising. This new run will probably be the first time I've read X-Men comics since the 90s. Well, besides some X-Force and Deadpool. Some very interesting concepts in those preview pages, and I love the art.

So I started reading the Mike Carey stuff. At least X-Men Legacy, never read that before.
How is it so far? I know it starts out more focused on Prof. X, but then switches to a team book with Rogue as the leader.

Ive always wanted to read X-Men Legacy, just havent gotten around to it. I did read the crossover that takes place around the middle of Legacy and loved it.

I’m liking it a lot and see why Hickman likes it, lots of secret history/recontexualize the past Along with a healthy dose of Sinister.
