In an effort to contain writer Jason Aaron, Marvel announced that writers Chris Yost and Craig Kyle will once again team up and wrest control of the Amazing X-Men title (perhaps to get rid of that pesky Nightcrawler again?) from him.
The Kyle/Yost run will will contain the same core X-Men team that started the title. The writers were elusive about any new characters, though they do have a fondess for Colossus.
"Craig Kyle: We love the all the classic X-characters and yes! They [classic X-Men] will absolutely be the core of our team moving forward. That said, we’ve had a chance to work will a lot of the up and coming X-Men and we love them too. It’s too early to discuss specifics as to who will or won’t be on the team I can tell you Chris and I both love Colossus and he’s someone we both feel needs to be on this journey with us."
When asked what their "arc" will consist of, they were even more tight-lipped:
"Craig Kyle: We plan to tell big, surprising, fun and emotional rides for the characters that hopefully the fans will want to read again and again. That’s the plan anyway. Wish us luck.
Chris Yost: The first arc should give people a sense of the scale we’re going for here."
So anyway, the team starts this June with Amazing X-Men #8, after Aaron gives up the reins on issue #6. Kathryn Immonen will be the writer on issue #7, Artist Ed McGuiness will continue on art duties.
