Sal still manages better in a sketch than most artists since have on the finished product.
Eaton's was good too.

So true.

Love this sketch.

Looking at it I can't help but imagine where XXM v1 would have been today if not for ridiculous editorial decisions, such as breaking up Chris & Sal. Comics are becoming more and more inaccessible and shallow I haven't bought any in over two years. Not even slightly tempted.

It would have been rebooted at least 3 times already. Marvel doesn't series going beyond their 20s. And given that Psylocke was in it, Remender and his Apocalypse stories would have likely taken over.

My readings were down to X-Factor, Astonishing and Captain Marvel. All of them cancelled. I used to read Avengers Academy too, which was the best X book of the past 10 years, despite what the cover said. But, you know...cancelled.

I meant if it were allowed to run undisturbed entirely till today. smiley

Yeah, it's better to just stay away from their books, Marvel has no commitment to anything anymore (except to releasing 5 crossovers every year.) Xavier's Excalibur ended with tons of loose ends, and many great characters flushed into limbo. Tentacles Callisto was so cool.

I'm still wondering who the glowing redhead was. As far as I know, CC never mentioned her again, not even on boards as he did with some of his other dangling plots.
I'm not sure how much advanced warning he was given that XXM would be cancelled, but if it was enough, maybe she would have been better left out and her page devoted to something else.

As for XXM continuing undisturbed...I wouldn't have minded Sal staying on until the end, but given how I didn't really like anything from the Fury arc in UXM onwards and CC's Exiles made me want to hug myself and feed the issues to the cats, I think I would have dropped it a while ago.

i think the constant cancellations takes a toll on the quality.

Because each time he has to start essentially from the beginning: coming up with a concept or a frame story for the series; coming up with years worth of plots; and characters; again and again and again, with no proper closure (like Xavier's Excalibur.) I think it adds up and has to have an effect.
