    why do you say that?


    so we may get an announcement of this storm book sometime before april or the book may even be released in April so we would hopefully hear something before then.

    From bleeding cool:

    Dawn of X started with six titles: X-Men, New Mutants, Marauders, Excalibur, X-Force, and Fallen Angels. Deadpool isnít part of the Dawn of X, but I count it as an X-book anyway. Gwenpool Strikes Back was revealed to also be an X-book, but it was a mini-series and itís over. Fallen Angels is ending, but February will introduce two books to take its place: Wolverine and Giant-Size X-Men, along with the four-issue X-Men/Fantastic Four crossover. In March, Cable and Hellions launch. And we know that in April, weíll at least be getting X-Factor by Leah Williams and David Baldeon. Thatís twelve individual X-Men series shipping in April, and undoubtedly some will double-ship. Thereís also the possibility we learn what X-Book featuring Storm that Vita Ayala is writing, and/or learn when X-Corps is coming out, announced for artist Carmen Carnero for February launch and then pushed back. Could we get either of those in April too? Or perhaps theyíre one and the same?

    Whatever the case, we should be up to a minimum of five books weekly by May. FEEL THE X-BLOAT!

    I feel like, while it has been nice to see the X-Men with a bit of a push after so long of being on the margins, Marvel is ramping them up too much too fast. The sales can't hold forever(it looks like other than Hickman's X-Men, the sales are already settling to pre-DoX levels).
    Let the flames destroy all but that which is pure and true!

    yes you're absolutely correct. I was making this point to a friend earlier. what do you think the drop is sales is due to? is it the stories people are not liking?

    I mean, the traditional comics market has kinda been shrinking for decades, so while X-Men as a franchise was done dirty due to the whole Fox thing, it's like, too late to undo that. People have moved on. Comics are kinda expensive for a story you can read in a few minutes(although, I will say Hickman's data pages, and stuff like his #4 were great reads, and easily worth it considering how much a drink costs in a bar, for example).

    I was just at my friend's apartment the other day, and saw he had an "Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters" placard on his wall, and not too minutes later he spoke about how he doesn't read comics or watch cartoons anymore because he's busy working. It's like, even if you're into these things conceptually, do you really want to dish out $4 or $5 bucks per title, per issue?

    There are so many films and shows and video games and streaming options these days, traditional comics are just not what they were back in the 60's or 90's even. Then you have to consider how drastically Hickman et al have changed things, so the old heads who do buy anything and everything might be turned off by some of this drastic change(and to be fair, so might the younger crowd who just want their faves as they were).

    I think your assessment is unfortunately spot on. the world in which now live comics are simply not as viable a medium as other forms of media.

    do you think it can in any way be turned around? I had this argument maybe a few weeks back that just because the numbers cor Hickman were good does not mean it will be able to sustain the high numbers it initially did due to the current times we currently live.

    Let's be real, Marvel/Disney are being extremely ambitious/greedy with this X-Men push. While HoX/PoX were a great tour de force, it was also a lot of books being put out week after week. It trained the audience to keep coming back for more. And then DoX has doubled down with more of(let's be real) less polished material. In this economy, of course the sales weren't going to keep up(I feel for the LCS owners who actually have to order all these books).

    I think ultimately the market will show that comics just won't sell the way they did in the 90's anymore. It is true that the comics market as a whole has grown since then, but DC and Marvel are loosing market share. There's a glut of indie comics. None of them will ever break Claremont and Lee's X-Men #1 sales figures, but if there are 8000 books out there selling 1000 copies each on their own little websites, it's still the same amount of books sold. Comics these days are really only for a niche audience, at least until they are adapted into series/films, but then that audience will barely go out to seek the actual comics.
