    Yeah, I agree; but one can wish

    No argument with this! X-Factor had too much potential and even started off kind of okay. Eyeboy still triggers me.

    This is pretty true, but there are interesting things happening in the “side” books.

    Is there a reason for this? X-Men has always had too many books, just go back the Regenesis days (post Schism) and there was probably a dozen books. But Generation Hope being a low seller kept alive due to editorial mandate did not drive anyone off Uncanny X-Men. A 'solo' Nightcrawler title in Astonishing X-Men did not driver anyone off Wolverine and the X-Men (and I know not to be so absolute, but my point stands). So are these people who just are not sold on X-Men in the first place just finally getting burnt out, or is it something in the way they think Marvel is marketing the books, particularly with one overarching story and many of the books being described as exploring the details of this era and picking up the plots Hickman teases in X-Men?

    I checked it out. It was okay, but probably not buying issue #2 honestly. Just donít care enough about the cast honestly, and the art was pretty average. The concept is decent, but the bookís just not worth shelling out for each month IMO.

    At this stage Iím buying X-men, X-Force, Wolverine and Cable: Reloaded. Thatís it. I dropped Marauders now that Storm is gone, but Iíll start picking up SWORD again too if this is where adult Cable is going to appear from now on.

    Way of X is doing fine. Iím with you on the rest. It goes with what my local shop I work at believes as well. so you are mostly right but yeah.. a lot of the sales are concerning. The local shop here isnít concerned about Way of X. It is the others. So yeah I believe Way of X will last as long as Hellions at least. Which Iím shocked is still going. I dig the book.

    Yeah, I get the dropping of books - the double whammy of the most interesting bits of storytelling wrt to Krakoa seeming to spin their wheels plus the delays and skip months have just lead to a loss of momentum and a lot of storylines feeling a bit too drawn out, and I went from buying everything except Wolverine and X-Force to just X-Factor and Vita's New Mutants (and now Way of X). I don't get the oversaturation complaint - buy the bits you get something out of, drop the ones that aren't doing it for you, and leave Marvel to balance their wallet for themselves. If Marvel cans Way of X, for example, it's not going to get me to pick up Duggan's X-Men.
