    Default Leinul Yu leaving the X-Men title...

    He states on Twitter that his run on X-Men is ending and that he's taking a break.

    Oops I spelled his name wrong. Sorry.

    Do you guys think after Swords of X there will be a reshuffle of writers and artist on the x-titles?

    I wouldnt mind Pepe Larraz or Russell Dauterman on the main X-Men series.

    But Larraz will probably need a break after the Swords of X event.

    What do you guys think? What would you like to see?

    I don't think there's gonna be a reshuffle, especially not of writers. I think that if we're getting some big status-quo changing stuff, it's gonna be on the previously hinted on December event(that's definetely not gonna happen in December anymore, RIP).

    Asrar may take Yu's place for a while again, at least Asrar drew Krakoa like an island covered with real vegetation lol.

    Let's hope we get somebody like Jim Lee on the main X-book.

    Or some artist like X-Force artist.

    I think an artist shuffle for some of the first wave books is likely , just because a year seems to be a pretty standard art-run length. but lots of the artists have been getting positive rec for their work so maybe they'll want to hang on. I hope To and Cassara stay

    Yu did some great work and I'm excited to see his Empyre issues. If Asrar takes over I'll be psyched

    I miss times where you could have the same (good) artist at least one year in a row, with no turn over, no guest artists.
    It's bad that Leinil is leaving when his work was getting better. But he's not my favorite, so I don't mind more than this.

    Great artist. He seems to bounce around a lot from one big thing to the next. I was bummed when he left the current Captain America book too, as he was the launch artist on that as well.

    I'm hoping we get a combination of Asrar/Silva/Larraz/Buffagni team.

    I forgot about Buffagni! Yes yes and yes please
    I feel like they're gonna save Silva and Larraz for important/special issues because they know we want it so bad

    Yu will be greatly missed. big fan of his work since his early days on wolverine OZT and UXM magneto war. i think issue #13 is his last one

    I do believe Mahmud Asrar from his recent tweets will be taking over after X of swords event on X-Men title.

    Sad to see Yu depart. It was a bit of a rough start in X-Men both story and art wise but it turned around completely for me by issue 3. Best wishes for Yu.
    You brought back Wolverine

    X-Men Red's artist. Won't be complaining if that's true.

    Agreed. Been a fan of his artwork ever since he helped Erik Larsen reunite Logan with his adamantium...

    when was that? Because fill in artists have always been a thing. A 12 issue/12 month stint is quite rare
