Over on his Tumblr blog, writer Brian Wood has confirmed that his run on adjectiveless X-Men – otherwise known as ‘Steve’s favourite comic with X-Men in the title’ – will end with issue #37. His run, with David Lopez and Roland Boschi, featured a female-dominated cast including Pixie and Storm, and was essentially a politically-leant spy-series.
The new creative team for the book will be writer Seth Peck and artist Paul Azaceta. Peck confirmed the news on his twitter, revealing that the first two issues of his run will feature a guest-appearance from Daredevil. And! Azaceta has revealed a first look at the story:
Issue #38 will be released in September. And it’s also worth noting that Wood will still be writing Ultimate X-Men, and doesn’t discount the possibility of a return to the ‘616’ at some point down the line.
