• Kyle & Yost To Take Over Amazing X-Men *UPDATE*

    Marvel.com have broken the news that the former New X-Men/X-Force writing team Craig Kyle & Christopher Yost are to take over Amazing X-Men starting with June's #8.

    Chris Yost has confirmed to AF.net on twitter that Northstar will still be a part of the team and that he has a big part to play in the first arc:

    Yost has had experience writing Jean-Paul before in 2010's X-Men: Hellbound limited series.

    Also; the cover, by returning series artist Ed McGuinness, appears to feature some very Wendigo/Sasquatch-esque looking characters...


    The June Solicits have been released today and Christopher Yost has confirmed on twitter that Alpha Flight will be in the issue.

    • Wolverine takes a trip back to Canada…
    • But when he discovers that an old friend is missing, his visit soon transforms into a hairy situation.
    • New writers Craig Kyle and Chris Yost!

      The same as the chances of anything coming from Mars.

      haha yeah very unlikely.

      Flashback has made random cameos and even his kids appeared, but doubt he will show.

      Marvel.com: Which other X-Men do we see in the story?
      Monty Nero:Mainly Wolverine, Beast, Nightcrawler, and Firestar as it turned out. You see the whole team at some point though.
      So probably a Northstar cameo in the annual then.

      And on that note:


      • In addition to Monty Nero, Amazing X-Men Annual #1 (APR140721, $4.99) will now have Kristen Bennett as a writer.

      Nrama: Who are the X-Men joining here in this trip to Africa?
      Nero: She's fighting alongside Wolverine, Beast, Firestar, Iceman and Nightcrawler. I wanted Logan and Kurt there because they were there when she started and bring that emotional connection. And we see the other characters from Amazing X-Men too.

      The preview for the Annual names Jean-Paul, but doesn't show him: http://www.newsarama.com/21243-new-m...-annual-1.html
      Hopefully he's in it later but I'm now starting to think it's unlikely...
