Not content with just relaunching Uncanny X-Men, Marvel has a new X-Men event coming our way with Age of X-Man Alpha, the new starting point for, you guessed it, the Age of X-Man miniseries that will be hitting in the next few months.Fortunately, this event isn’t following in the footsteps of Age of Apocalypse and taking the place of the X-Men series that Marvel currently produces.

Marvel’s been pushing this book like crazy, and they’re predicting this to be one of the top-selling comics of the past few years. Thankfully, it’s damn good. In fact, it’s better than good; it’s pretty damn awesome actually. Read the rest of this entry
