    After a few months of not so much exciment for me, April will deliver! These solicitations are on fire, all new books look interesting. Excited to read all. I just have to be pacient now.

    If Gillen brings the quality he is delivering in Eternals, Immortal X-men is going to be phenomenal. Loved the cover and seeing Selene.

    X-men Red with double shipping is everything for me. Let's make the book start with a bang. Excited to see how Al will deal with all these many characters and plots, because he is certainly capable. Happy he is in a title with X-men in it, I think he'll get more attention now. Excited for Storm, Cable, Magneto, Sunspot, Vulcan, Brand and the Sword characters. Yes, everyone!

    X-men by Duggan is hard to get excited by the solicitations. March's issue looked great with the Orchis cover. This one looks boring and another filler issue focusing on a character with lazy characterization, as he did in the Polaris focused issue. I really hope I'm wrong and he gets Laura right and also moves the plot of this slow book. Cool to finally see Lady Deathstrike in this era.

    Can't slow your feeding rate if Selene has already fed on and killed every mutant on the island. And I would not put it past her.

    Not too familiar with all of that, but, as a character who has lived for thousands of years and is one of the oldest mutants ever i think there is a lot of story potential to work off of with Selene.

    This is my exact list haha. Seeing the bright side of saving money over the next 3 months cause the X-Office is going to own my wallet in April.

    I honestly think that Maddy would be much more trustworthy, and bring much more drama.

    Getting everything but Carol, X-Force, Wolverine, Patch and Thunderbird. But I'll probably read Thunderbird anyway, if I see it get good reviews here. I like how X-Men Red isn't the only book tackling Arakko lore, so that's pretty neat. Also, "Kicking off with a hunt for a missing Arakkii god" = time traveling Hellion theory confirmed, maybe.

    I'm looking forward to living the pre-Hellfire Gala life, when I had 2-3 books to read every week.

    April is lit. That Marauders cover is amazing and Selene coming for a QC seat? Give me all that drama!

    I'm pretty much getting everything.
    Krakoa and Arakko forever! Justice for Hellion!

    It would be nice to get consistent plot, but I think it's still monster of the week. I hate to have any expectations here, maybe he seen comments and tries harder with her characterization.

    Yes, that should be her


    I think I'll get Marauders, X-Men Red and Immortal for sure, despite my better knowledge I might get X-Men, LoX and KoX I'll need to see reviews first.
    Rest is hard pass.

    Yeah. Rematch of their fight in Messiah Complex I guess.

    God that scene where Logan, Laura and the rest of the newly formed X-Force unit comes to Cable and baby Hope’s aid against Deathstrike and the Reavers was so great.

    I have no faith whatsoever. In fact I'm sure Deathstrike will completely forget she and Laura have ever met (including Laura kicking her ass the first time, that they were on a team together in Wolverines, and that Laura pretty much saved her ass when the Orphans of X came for them).

    I doubt it will even be mentioned, if he couldn't bother to run a five second Google search about X vs. Taskmaster for Devil's Reign. In fact, I bet the fight will be triggered when Yuriko impales Synch and Laura loses her shit, and Duggan will unironically think he's doing something unique with her character that's never been seen before.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Are those Donald Pierce clones on the Wolverine cover? I'm getting the feeling the explanation for Danger's absence is going to be some creep keeping her captive. Again.

    Selene HAS TO BE on the council. It will be so much fun!!!

    Although I think she has really no place there at all.

    ---

    Immortal X-Men and X-Men Red sound like heaven to me! Wished my fave Jean Grey would be part of one of those books and not stuck with boring (but beautfiul) X-Men........
