Matthew Rosenberg Says Goodbye to Uncanny X-Men

Matthew Rosenberg Says Goodbye to Uncanny X-Men

Posted by May 15, 2019 Comment

It seems like just last year when we were all getting ready for the big relaunch of Uncanny X-Men. Actually, that’s because it was just last year. November, in fact, less than six months ago, is when Matthew Rosenberg, alongside Kelly Thompson, Ed Brisson, and artists Mahmud Asrar, R.B. Silva, Yildiray Cinar, Mahmud Asrar, Mark Bagley, and Mirko Colak, kicked off the 10-part weekly X-Men Disassembled event that brought the beloved series back. After that, Rosenberg stayed on to write Uncanny X-Men on a bi-weekly schedule with artist Salvador Larroca, while Thompson continued to write Mr. and Mrs. X, ending in June, and Brisson launched a new X-Force series, ending, alongside this latest incarnation of Uncanny X-Men, in July.

After that, Jonathan Hickman will be relaunching the line, starting with a 12-issue weekly run consisting of two titles, House of X and Powers of X. Hickman will write the “flagship” X-Men title after that, but we don’t yet whether that will be another Uncanny X-Men, or something else. We’ll also likely get several other series, as we know Marvel likes to publish 4-5 X-Men comics per week. When Uncanny X-Men ends in July, it will be after 22 issues in 8 months, which is longer than many series last at Marvel, a company whose answer to pretty much everything is to relaunch with a #1 issue.

Rosenberg took to Twitter, which he quit several months ago, to say his goodbyes:

Of course, before he goes, he’s got five issues left, as he notes. And as he’s previously noted, two more characters to kill. We hear that Hickman’s favorites are Sunspot and Cannonball… could Rosenberg be planning the ultimate revenge? We’ll find out by July.

Uncanny X-Men #18 is in stores today.

Matthew Rosenberg Talks the End of Uncanny X-Men

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
