Well, I am currently reading four X-Men books (sometimes all five if the mood strikes), and after these titles end and THESE
new titles start, in "Spring of 2017", it looks like I will be reading five of the new ones. At least I think I will. Creative teams may influence me to add more than that or may do the opposite and allow me to cut more than I thought, or of course make me have some mixture of the two.
What I plan on getting, pre-creative team announcements are:
I just have no interest in Cable (never have), though I may try the first couple issues to see if he grabs me
Jean Grey is just another female lead book starring a character I have no interest in. There seems to be a lot of Female lead books currently (Black Widow, Gwen-Pool, Hellcat, Jessica Jones, Mockingbird, Moon Girl, Ms. Marvel, Scarlet-Witch, Squirrel-Girl, Silk, Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman, Thor, Wolverine and the just canceled A-Force) as Marvel tries to reach out to the female audience and get more double x chromosome readers
. Some of them I really enjoy but most I ... just no. And the bad news is the sales for most of them are just not there, with only Thor, Spider-Gwen and Wolverine having sales over 30k and Ms. Marvel and Gwen-Pool being the only remaining titles over the 21k mark. (Black Widow was there last month at 24k, for August's sales, but don't see her in Septembers sales.) 6 out of 15 does not equate to a great demand for the books.
(Even though comparing those "Female" lead books alone in a vacuum does not equate to anything really, as Marvel has plenty of "Male" lead books well below those numbers too.)
But back to these x books ...
Some of these look to be pretty much the same book that is currently being published now, but maybe not. I mean from the look of it, X-Men Blue could very well just be the All-New X-Men book (with the original X team) while X-Men Gold seems to be a mix of Uncanny X-Men, but more Extraordinary X-Men mainly. The Weapon X book looks to be just like the current Wolverine, but hopefully more extended in characters. Maybe.
What scares me is there may be more titles to come and Marvel will push me out of the X-Books once again. I just can't keep up with 11 X-titles a month. I just can't. And no, I couldn't keep uo with even 4 Inhuman titles, so don't go there either Marvel.
