Age of X

Anyone excited about reading this? Honestly I was gonna buy it anyway but after reading a Mike Carey interview in Generation Hope #3 I got really interested.

Here is a brief summary of what it's about.

It will run in X-Men Legacy and New Mutants for 3 months I think. Plus a one shot to open the series and 2 anthology issues fleshing out the world.

This sounds like a wanna-be Age of Apocalypse. But not as good.

I like the look of it, I just cant be arsed to buy it in singles, may wait for the trade. I am taking a break from X books, probs a bad time but I usually time it badly when I drop books its a bad habit.

To be honest, that was my first impression.  I'm getting all of the titles anyway, and Carey's interview has me hopeful that it won't suck...and to be fair, Age of Apocalypse was awesome, so not being a good as that, can still be pretty darn good.

It'll be kewl to see some of the mutants get their powers back like Chamber. Really never cared too much for House of M. And yes, this series does sound like AoA.

How many times have they done this now?

It depends how you count.  Then again, all comics recycle the same stories.
