    1. COTA #5 / New Mutants #20 - This is Vita Ayala's month. Their books have been killing it and the Shadow King stuff is picking up. I can tell the COTA kids are going to grow on me once we get to know each of them individually. The solo focuses so far have been really helpful!

    2. S.W.O.R.D. #7 - This creative team is reliable. 'Nuff said. I will enjoy this no matter what characters appear because the script, pencils, and colors are bound to be superb.

    3. Hellions #13 - Sinister is Wells' best character so this will be hilarious and horrific for sure.

    4. Wolverine #14 - I don't usually read this book, but I'm here for more Solem.

    5. Marauders #22 / X-Men #1 - Hoping to be impressed by Duggan.

    6. X-Corp #3 - Not super jazzed about a Jamie issue tbh. Tempted to skip this one.

    X-Factor is most likely a skip month, I think you guys are worrying for no reason.

    i'll be getting them all. X-factor is probably jst taking a break so Leah can adjust the story now that Polaris is on the main x-team.

    Not sure why it would take longer for her to adjust the story than for everyone to write their gala books where it happens or for Duggan to write X-men 1

    Writing a new book and inserting a character is a bit more simple than changing an entire plot and replacing a character when you may not have thought they would have won the vote. Lorna was the only one in the vote tied to a book i believe.

    No, Rogue was on excalibur. Leah already knew that Lorna was on X-men months ago

    Yeah, that was annoying - Unbeatable Squirrel Girl had two #1 issues in the same calendar year, which they joked about on the second #1's cover. They shouldn't have forced everything to restart from #1 after Secret Wars. If it kept the same creative team like Squirrel Girl and Ms. Marvel did, it should've carried on as it was.

    It works though. Action Comics, Superman and Flash all just relaunched without renumbering - and all three were outside the top 50 for March. In short, they flopped. Action and Flash both have legacy numbering, and Superman didn't bother renumbering because it'll be doing so in July when it relaunches as Superman: Son of Kal-El (Jon's taking that title over).

    That's why i noted voted on if Rogue was chosen by Duggan which seems to be the case, Tini would have had more time knowing that Rogue would no longer be in the book whereas Leah had to wait until at least after the vote closed.

    Works at what? It can get retailers to order extra copies that they may or may not sell, but we have all seen that 4-5 issues in things return to the old numbers as retailers adjust to people not buying the book. Often relaunching can lead to lower numbers after the dust settles, and even the spike in retailers orders is lower than it used to because retailers know it does not 'work'.

    Also, Justice League and Detective did not renumber and they are pretty high up there. While not a March change, Batman did not renumber either when Tynion took over.

    I doubt it has anything to do with adjusting the story, most likely the artist just needed some time.

    Leah know for a long time that Polaris was voted on X-men team, writing on comics happen with months on advance.

    that seems more believable, but the book could get a fill in artist

    Good observation. Sometimes pointless relaunches make the book bleed numbers faster.
