Today sees the release of Marvel Now!'s relaunched X-Men series, starring Jubilee, Storm, Rogue, Kitty Pryde, Rachel Grey, and Psylocke as an all-female X-team. I don't think I need to tell you that we've had our eyes on this one for a while. We had the chance to speak with Marvel Editor Jeanine Schaefer about the new title: Its origins, its art, its characters, and how she dealt with some of the negative reactions to this groundbreaking new series.
Today in things that make us scream incoherentlyA comic book from Marvel titled simply X-Men, starring an all-female cast, was a breath of fresh air for us. Not only did it have a talented creative team,(Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel) behind it but it carried with it the historic title, giving the characters the respect they deserve. But not everyone sees it that way as you can see from one of Wood's tweets earlier today. There's one more after the cut.
SupergirlyLast week, Marvel revealed a teaser for a new title from Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel. We surmised it was going to be a title with X-Men characters, specifically women, because of the double helix and XX logo. We had assumed this was going to be a completely new title and while we were partly right on that we're happy to say we were also partly wrong. Wood and Coipel's new title is not a "new" title but the relaunched Marvel Now X-Men series starring Jubilee, Storm, Rogue, Kitty Pryde, Rachel Grey and Psylocke.
