Oh wow, maybe May?  What a Spring this could turn out to be!

Long shot, but I would love to see this book come out on a biweekly
basis at least for the summer. I remember them doing it for Spider-Man
when McFarlance was working on the book.

From what I saw on the internet The X-Men are now dealing with a younger version of Cable... What a good story it must be!

I don't read those series (Uncanny? Amazing? Red X-Men? I can't even figure out what's going on with these titles...) but what about putting at last a great X-Men book on the shelves?

Thanks for your answer JB ! So it will come out ultimately ! Now if May was first suggested but is now not doable anymore, would the book be pushed back to September ? I don't know if ii's also the case in the US but in France, publishers prefer September- the back to school / back to work season...

When I spoke to CB Cebulski in August, he suggested May—tho that’s getting tight for dealines, now.
----------------------------------------------------

With Uncanny 129 (the start of the Dark Phoenix saga) being originally released in January 1980, I wouldn't even mind waiting til January 2020 to make it a nice round 40 years.  Maybe Marvel can do monthly reprints of 129 through "Untold" to set the stage and build up excitement

I lean away from anything that ties this series too closely to the publishing timeline of the original. We know there will be plenty of people counting on their fingers and toes. “This is the sixth issue, so it corresponds to X-MEN 143, so THIS should have happened/be happening...”

Uhm... no.

JB, how comfortable are you while pencilling the characters now? This did all start with a bit of flexing.

As I noted in my SYFY interview, I was surprised how readily the characters dropped out of my pencil. As if they had been waiting, just off-stage, all these (choke) decades.

I don't mean to read into anything... but it's starting to sound like Marvel is going to publish it...

True, but even back then they were streets ahead of ninety percent of the rest of the industry.

With that being said, are there any characters that you're revisiting that you've been having trouble "reconnecting" with?  Either writing or artistically?
