Two of the stronger X-Men titles during an incredibly strong period for X-Men titles in general, April will sadly see the cancellation of both Greg Pak’s X-Treme X-Men and David Lapham/Robert De La Torre’s Age of Apocalypse.
This comes as the finale to a crossover event between the two books and Marjorie Liu’s (safe) Astonishing X-Men series, called X-Termination. It looks like both books will wrap up their long-term story goals during the event, leaving this as a conclusion rather than a pair of dropped storylines.
Both books were fan favourites rather than best-sellers, with Age of Apocalypse receiving consistently good reviews with each issue. And of course, X-Treme X-Men was the book which put Dazzler back in the spotlight, where she resumed her long-running status as the best X-Men character of all time. The last two solicitations for the books are below:
