    I'd rather hold onto Big Xaddy Blue but since he's unavailable...Hope will have to do. Just keep the cocktails flowing. LOL

    Ram V would be the only way Neal Shaara Bollywood realness finally returns to the X-Books. DC's probably got Ram locked for a year or so though.

    Ram V is working with Ewing on the new Venom run.


    Honestly, I'm excited for that book.

    This is so disappointing. I like to be optimistic but this turn of events has killed my anticipation for Inferno, mainly because I think it will be of little consequence since Hickman is not allowed to finish his story. I know he's trying to be diplomatic by saying its the writers, but everything always comes down to money. Marvel/Xmen must be making a significant amount off the Krakoa era and the gazillion titles around it, and they want to milk it for all its worth. I was really looking forward to the Phalanx/Galactus elements being brought back later, truly a gut punch if there ever was one.

    Isn't he saying that all those plans are still there if the other writers want to use them, if they wish? It's just that he won't be writing it.
    He tries to reassure us and yet...

    Yeah, nothing Hickman said here warrants all the negativism and fearmongering on the thread... People are making tons of assumptions. I guess some people just think Hickman really just needs to be here forever or it's all shit.

    It's hard to do character and plot development when the rest of his team don't want to further said plots or characters.

    The problem is that no one else in that writing room is as good as Hickman, when it comes to planning and plot. Hell, writing period.

    Hickman is what brought in the interest. Let's see if they can prove the naysayers wrong and still continue what he started. Most just won't bet on it, and half of those peoplemight just stop reading.

    If there's a drop in sales following Inferno, just don't act surprised. It would make sense, given the name that brought the sauce is now leaving...with said sauce.

    I think it has a less to do with that in the more to do with the fact that they wanted Hickman to actually finish the story he was writing in the manner in which he chose. Hickman being on X-Men was a joyous occasion for me his writing is some of my favorite in the entire industry. I was looking forward to something similar to Fantastic Four and New Avengers. HoX/PoX was monumental in how it changed the X-Men and thag was only the beginning of his plans so to hear they had to he wasn't allowed to finish the story the way he wanted and that some of his plot threads are going to be picked up by other writers is a bummer and I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels that way.

    I just hope Ewing stays on long enough to tackle the Dominion plot because he's the only writer I trust to do that plot thread justice.

    Yeah, Ewing is the only writer close to his level left. He's can do grand and complicated, so hopefully he does something with these threads.

    Agreed. Iím hoping to see a tighter, more focused book from Ewing in the relaunch. Getting dragged into multiple events really killed the momentum of SWORD, even though I thought the writing was solid and he balanced a massive cast quite well.

    But Iím definitely most excited for whatever heís doing next (and I hope it still has Cable and Storm in it).

    I could see Xbooks editorial not trying to have any head of x with the post inferno books just so fans don't get attached to any particular writer's story this time around. I see the closest thing to something like Hickman again is just whoever is writing the main x-men title like Duggan.

    I would say its UNLIKE Hickman to do incomplete stories and write books for other writers. Plus its also true that he wrote several other books under a long spell rather than just 2 years with incompleting his stories. He already said that his initial idea for introducing these books was rejected.
