    And the fact that Leah has a new book coming is not making me optimistic. Hoping X-Factor can at least get to issue 12.

    Marvel has used the phrase “a love letter to the character and the fans”. Putting Gambit in Excalibur and then keeping him is the opposite of that. It’s a prolonged middle finger to his fans.

    Frustrated for X-Factor. Every other book but X-Factor and New Mutants (which switched creative teams) has had 12 issues from July 2020 to July 2021, plus SWORD which has had 7 with 5 less months (about the same rate of release) and the three new titles which haven't skipped a month. X-Factor and New Mutants have had 10 each.

    Hellions - 12 issues
    Excalibur - 12 issues
    Marauders - 12 issues
    X-Men - 12 issues
    Wolverine - 12 issues
    X-Force - 12 issues
    SWORD - 7 issues, minus 5 months

    X-Factor - 10 issues
    New Mutants - 10 issues

    The X-Book pull list for me is getting shorter by the month.

    Amazon lists the second trade as issues 6 - 10.

    Which i can imagine is not going to convince critics from thinking the book is a lost cause.

    Though his presence could be interesting if one of the kids does suddently become a mutant, but also gets one of the less fortunate powers (i bring this possibility up a lot i admit) and then ranting about not getting the cool powers right to his face.

    It would be like a mini version of Cortez ranting about his family suffering to Magneto in this month's SWORD issue.

    That would indeed be odd. From the last sales data Excalibur hung at the lower end of doing okay (it has likely dropped further since then) and it's not uncommon to hear stories from shop owners complaining about unsold shelves of Excalibur issues.

    While X-factor seems to suffer the same low sales issues, why should it get canceled so soon while Excalibur keeps comming?

    Unless Excalibur is allready on the chopping block for october and they want to finish the last run for the trades. Just some pondering.

    Yeah the renumbering gets tiresome. Where are the days volumes went at least to 50 issues?

    Last week of June the last X-Factor issue comes out, so probably the next will be 1st week of August.

    Seems Gloriana is stepping in for Rogue in Excalibur.

    This solicitation is giving me major "one of the kids becomes a mutant" vibes.

    Not too reliable. Going by the trades on AMAZON, Pak's episode X ends at issue 26, and leaves 27 out all together.

    So Lord knows.

    The second X-Factor trade is solicited in this month's solicits too and says 6-10, so that's confirmed. The first volume collected through 5 though, and 6-9 are an arc with 10 as a standalone gala issue, so not really sure that tells us something either way.

    Is that Lourdes Chantel on the cover of Marauders #22? ,Is she resurrected from the dead as well? Many might not know her as she only appeared in UXM for one issue back in the 80's I believe. Also do note Harry Leland of the Hellfire Club is on play on the chessboard below, so will he return as well?

    My sentiments exactly.

    Let's reward the book with the most boring ploding plot, worst dialogue, no express purpose as a team and an inability to use the majority of the supposed "central cast" in any meaningful way.

    Yet drop the book that consistently has used every member of the cast as essential to their team, has great character moments, a well defined purpose and legitimately tackles the central questions around the resurrection protocols?!

    You can hear my facepalm from space.

    If Tini wants to write a Braddock family drama for those OG Excalibur fans then more power to her, but can Gambit and Jubilee at least go somewhere where they're more than furniture? Or at least where they can be cool and fancy furniture?!
