So Mike Carey will be replacing Peter Milligan on "X-Men". I like Carey all right... and he certainly doesn't suffer from the same stylistic problems Milligan does when writing in the mainstream.

The rosters, as near as I can make out, will be as follows:

Joss Whedon/John Cassday (Astonishing X-Men): Cyclops, Wolverine, Colossus, Shadowcat, Emma Frost and Beast.

Mike Carey/Chris Bachalo (X-Men): Cable, Mystique, Sabretooth, Rogue, Iceman and Cannonball.

Ed Brubaker/Billy Tan (Uncanny X-Men following up on Deadly Genesis): Marvel Girl, Nightcrawler and Havok are confirmed, the rest are unknown.

And now I'm realizing that, come the summer, I'll be reading all three core X-books, at least on a trial basis.
