    Default Is it me or do the Dawn of X titles look like a hot mess?

    The covers and solicitations for issue 2s look incomprehensible. Enjoying HoXPoX but Iím concerned where this is going. Is it possible itís all a fake out?

    They all seem fine. New concepts Hickman is trying. It's welcome after the lull the franchise has been in for the last 10+ years.

    Nothing jumps out at me as a must read right now, but I see no red flags on any of the titles.

    For those who aren't impressed yet, there's a Wave II and III coming in 2020. When they'll start announcing is anyone's guess.

    If we do get books as early as Jan., then we'll hear something in Oct. But it may not be until Summer of 2020 for all we know.

    It's just a matter of wait & see on it, while hoping there's something in it for you.

    I don't see anything wrong with then, they probably just trying to reveal as little as possible before House/Power are done. I had to say that the only titles that interest me are X-Men by Hickman (because is obviously the main one) and Excalibur by Tini Howard (know nothing about the author, but i like the premise and the characters well enough). I'm only going to read X-Force because of Wolverine, Percy is a mixed bag and i don't know what to expect from him. But

    They're visually and stylistically distinct while having cohesion and clearly operating in different parts of the same mythos, which is what you want in a comic franchise's line of titles.

    I think they are very meh, it may be because they are revealing too little and will look better after reading.

    Also the fact that they're withholding as much information as they can since they can't reveal too much about how HoX/PoX end.

    Gold star! I was about to type this out a lot less concisely.

    hoxPox has barely gotten off the ground, of course the solicits and concepts may not make much sense yet..we have no idea where Hickman plans to take the franchise

    Mods, move this into the extant 'Unpopular opinions' thread

    The only thing I'm concerned about is that I think it would be better for the main title in the long run if it wasn't being marketed as a Summers family title in these first few issues, but it's alright

    Do you mean the mastheads? The font's pretty terrible. Not a fan.

    Agreed. Three issues and no Storm. Really, really bad.
