Rogue Wakes Up Feeling Blue in Excalibur #5 [X-ual Healing 1-8-20]

As Marvel does its best to return to pre-HoXPoX levels of market saturation, last week had five X-books for fans to choose from, so we hope you applied for one of those DC credit cards.

Six X-books hit stores last week: New Mutants #4, X-Force #4, Marauders #4, Excalibur #4, Fallen Angels #4, and one surprise book no one was expecting.

Recaps of three X-Books as Marvel continues to ramp up its X-Men publishing schedule: Marauders #2, Excalibur #2, and Deadpool #1.

Okay, okay, I know that the Island of Krakoa under new mutant rule is bringing back many of the undead mutants.
