    Yeah but there’s definitely an Anglophile seam that ran thru the original volume. England was seen as lovely, warm, quaint, intelligent and ordered, and fun. Doubly so when Davis has full control. Ellis changed a LOT, but he’s Ellis, doing Ellis things. Later volumes that pulled the Anglocentricity out of the book felt awkward and... dirty(?). That’s not to say I don’t hope this new volume will be good, but I share the others’ fears and distaste for cutting the original seam out in favor of what appears to be X-Men: Purple.

    Because only British writers can write British characters well.

    That’s why I love a comic series like Preacher. A good old American writer writing good old American characters in good old Texas.

    There's literally only one British team member with a cast of 6. Do we need multiple writers on this book ala Disassembled, to represent each ethnicity?

    Seems like a good reason as any to not put a British writer on this book.

    Saga is a finite story being handled by a single writer: Brian K. Vaughan. The X-Men will go on forever. Even if Tini writes a great tale about super-heroes being parents (a role I, particularly, have no interest in seeing neither Rogue or Gambit playing), as soon as she moves on, the risk of Rogue being sidelined or getting stuck in a one-note dramatic function is high. I don't want all the kids gone, I just don't care for this particular subplot when it comes to Rogue and Gambit and that doesn't mean I have a limited viewpoint. That's a bit condescending.

    I can't tell if this is a joke?

    The TECHNET's newest leader is the prime minister of a country that's lovely, warm, quaint, intelligent and ordered, and fun:

    Brian Braddock would've probably voted for the Tories.

    And I would 100% love to see a fully unleashed Garth Ennis take on the X-Men at some point.

    I cant wait till we start getting more Excalibur variants.

    Also IF they were to bring a British writer on board I think the only ones that could be as high concept as Hickman would be Mike Carey, Si Spurrier, or Keiron Gillen.

    But thats all wishful thinking.

    Though not exactly the same humor, definitely some humor with Jubes and Gambit around. Oh man, Jubilee and Apocalypse could be gold.

    Thank goodness you get it Peach. We can't go making characters seem all complex and multidimensional and lifelike. That's way too confusing for us. We need to punch all the things and get all the bad guys. And we can't do that with all these weird human attachments and emotions. Ick. Gross!
