MarvelNOW! teases new book XX

January 7th, 2013 by Marc Comments

MarvelNOW! released this teaser today for a new book from busy as hell writer Brian Wood and artist Oliver Coipel. I’m assuming this is for a new X book given the title.

I know it would be hard as we’ve seen just about all there is when it comes to the X characters, but I’m really hoping Marvel blows my mind here. With all the double shipping and $3.99 titles, MarvelNOW! is looking more like a big money grab and not an actual attempt to refresh their characters like DC had with the New52. So with that being said, I’m hoping XX will bring us something original and creative. One thing I do trust in is that Brian Wood knows how to write a good story, so with that I rest a little easier. It does seem though that the X book universe is getting a bit crowded.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
