    Giallo means "Yellow" in italian and is the name of a style of literature focused on murder misteries.. Is a play of words on the tone of the story and Cortez department colour.

    Also, Scot Eaton is drawing that issue of Wolverine and I really liked his work on Wolverine Origins, despite not thinking much of that series. His Logan is bulky and stout, like he should be. Really enjoyed when he killed Omega Red in that series...

    Not sure how he came back actually. During Remender’s Uncanny X-Force someone created three versions of Omega Red from his remains. One of them looked like a skinnier Arkady actually and went by Omega Red (in addition to Omega Black and Omega ???). But not sure how the real deal ended up coming back. Anyone recall?

    I hope this thing of skipping some books every month is not because the X-line has many titles and they are doing this to make the line smaller. Because if that's the case, I'd prefer fewer books.

    Cable's cover looks like the kind of cover for a last issue. I hope it is the case and we have OG Cable back. I'm tired of this twink.

    Very excited for all the rest, quite honest. I'm very happy with the X-franchise and almost everything looks cool.

    He was brought back to life in X-men Gold 9-10, by Guggeinheim. I don't remember what happened, just that it was a very horrible arc. The title was very bad and this was one of the worst stories for me, so don't lose your time reading it lol.

    Agree wholeheartedly.

    Disappointed that X-Factor is taking more time off. I understood why during XOS but this is kinda frustrating.

    Hopefully Jean steps back into the spotlight (even if briefly) in X-Force.

    Hoping she steps into the spotlight in the new X-men book after Hellfire Gala. I’m guessing launching sometime this summer, perhaps coinciding with other changes... hmmm... like someone else major returning perhaps? Could be awesome.

    I can already see the 90s tastic Brett Booth cover in my head. Ha.

    Looks like just S.W.⨂.R.D. and X-Men Legends for me.

    Wait is this a new ongoing or one shot or mini?!?!?
    In the real world i would be BOTH pro registration and Pro mutant rights. Xavier and Trask were both right.

    I believe it was mentioned somewhere (AiPT?) that there are missing months to re-align the stories, concurrently.
    I would say it was XoS that threw things off, as ongoing plot threads had to be stopped and rescheduled in order for the books to tell a cohesive event-story. Not covid-19.

    At this point, I think Callisto has had more development in the book than either Iceman or Pyro, so they may as well make her a main cast member. I've enjoyed her presence in the book, so I'm glad to see more of her. And maybe Bishop will get to do something? Maybe?

    Way of X looks promising. I love the idea of seeing Nightcrawler take a more prominent role in an X-Book. I think this is and overdue boost.

    Everything else looks solid. Feels like things are going to be just settled enough for the next big event, whatever that might be.

    I loved Vita's Marauders XoS issue and her recent New Mutants so I'm actually going to give CoTA a looksee.

    This is correct. They are published by Mondadori... the cover is a clear homage:
