IGN announced this morning that Marc Guggenheim, best known as one of the executive producers of CW's Arrow, will be taking over X-Men from departing writer Brian Wood as of this August. Guggenheim, who previously wrote Young X-Men for Marvel, wrote a pitch for the company while on the set of Arrow and plans to take the all-female team into space. No artist has been announced for the series.
While I'm sure some fans will be disappointed about Wood leaving the book, it does free up more time to do portfolio reviews, so I'm sure we'll hear an announcement about a new series soon.
The X-Men books in general will be changing a bit in the coming months. Jason Aaron is set to depart Amazing X-Men, Storm is getting a solo series this summer, and Greg Rucka's Cyclops series began its Eisner Award campaign this month. Wolverine is also getting ready to die, which has fans more excited than waterfowl at a bread factory. Also, Marvel recently hinted that the X-Men would be involved in some sort of fall event called Axis, which will probably be an awful attempt at equating Cyclops with Hitler.
Stay turned to the Outhouse for more stuff as we find it out.
