As noted on Bleeding Cool, it looks like DC isn’t the only company axing some books in April. Hot off the heels of the X-Termination crossover, both “Age of Apocalypse” and “X-Treme X-Men” will be cancelled in April. Here are the final solicits:
AGE OF APOCALYPSE #14
(W) David Lapham (A) Roberto De La Torre (CA) Greg Land
PART 3 of X-TERMINATION! — FINAL ISSUE!
– The multi-verse is being consumed!
– No one is safe as our heroes split up to fight a war in two universes.
X-TREME X-MEN #13
(W) Greg Pak (A) Andre Arujo (CA) Kalman Androsofsky
Part 4 OF X-TERMINATION — FINAL ISSUE!
– With the rift into the AOA widening, the only chance might be to step into the void-but at what cost?
– Kid Nightcrawler makes the ultimate sacrifice
I suppose it makes sense, to pull three of the lower tier X-Books into a crossover and leave two of them behind in its wake. It is a shame, though, for fans of the book to see them go. “X-Treme” was particularly quite fun, reminiscent of the cancelled “Exiles” comic and equally full of whimsy.
On the other hand — Dazzler in Wood’s “X-Men” perhaps? She is free for other engagements, now. Perhaps its time for a tour.
We’ll bring you more in depth solicit coverage next week.
