    I am in the market for a New Mutants #98 graded around 9.4 and Amazing Spider-Man #129 around the same.

    If you are selling either let me know.

    Everytime they killed Cyclops is just stupid.

    Ultimate Universe, shot giving a speech after Ultimatum

    Regular Series, tries to call down Beyond Omega lvl mutant, gets Nuked to death

    Secret Wars, somehow he has a Phoenix Egg? and basically becomes the Phoenix, crushed in a second by God King Doom

    I hate Cyclops. I was very satisfied after reading Death of X #4.

    X-Books slowly headed in the right direction ... in April:

    Marvel Reveals X-Men Blue, Gold Teams, Shipping Info

    Announced via IGN, “X-Men Gold,” written by Marc Guggenheim with art by Ardian Syaf, will star Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Old Man Logan and Rachel Grey, with Kitty Pryde as team leader.

    Yes, Kitty will no longer be a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Guggenheim explained to IGN that the ever-popular character is returning home where she’ll lead her new team in a battle with a new incarnation of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

    “X-Men Blue,” written by Cullen Bunn with art by Jorge Molina, stars the time-tossed team of Cyclops, Iceman, Beast and Angel, with Magneto as their mentor-figure. Jean Grey will be present as well, but in “Blue,” she’s taking on the mantle of leader for the first time.

    Both series will ship twice-monthly, meaning X-Men readers will be treated to four issues per month between the titles. “X-Men Blue” and “X-Men Gold” debut in April 2017 as part of Marvel’s ongoing ResurrXion initiative.

    New local comic book shop just opened literally right next to my office.

    Buying weeklys is such a waste of time and money but i'm getting that urge again.

    Is Marvel still replacing all their heroes with black transgender muslim women?

    Yes. Everyone is either a minority or a kid until they fix the X-Men in the spring, but even that there's plenty of reason to be dubious about.

    Glad to hear I'm not the only one that felt that way. What a waste.

    So has this change to diversify Marvel comics helped sales? I think it's dumb to change them all, but if they're selling more books...

    It's all free online, no idea why folks would consider spending cover prices for this garbage....

    Comics are now just adds for movies, where the real Money is made.

    Only good thing to come out of Civil War II is new She-Hulk, they have a good look for her and I'm interested in seeing Jen maybe finally get the spotlight she deserves as a character.
