Marvel Will Ship 15 X-Men Comics in April, But None of Them Twice

It looks like, despite Jonathan Hickman's protestations, Marvel has heard the grumblings that they may possibly be putting out more monthly X-Men comics than any fan can reasonably afford. Yes, there will still be fourteen X-Men books out in April (fifteen if you count Deadpool, which we do), but in a remarkable show of restraint, Marvel only plans to ship one issue of each that month.

Of course, they've got to make up some of that lost revenue somewhere, so both Children of the Atom #1 and X-Factor #1 will be oversized issues that cost an extra dollar, as will X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills Extended Cut #1, Marvels Snapshot: X-Men #1, and Giant-Size X-Men: Nightcrawler #1. So if we're being technical about it, that's really fifteen X-Men comics and change in terms of how much they cost (sixteen if you count Deadpool, which we do).

Sixty-one dollars worth of X-Men comics. To be clear.

Check out the solicits below, and Marvel's full April solicitations here.

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.
