It's most likely pre-HoM, meaning we know how things will be at the end so they link up with HoM or CW. Either that, or AXM will run sorta like 616b in the future.
...which doesn't make a lot of difference. Like we knew already that Emma was going to end up good, Scott will need his visor back, etc. because of what's in Civil War. Although I've got to wonder how they place it, given that I don't remember seeing any of Sentinel Squad O*N*E, the 198, missing students, etc. in issues #13+...vintsukka said:The first year, meaning # 1-12, were pre-HoM, issue 13 and onwards are post-HoM but pre-CW.
Whedon is pretty much writing around it so that ASM is a pretty self-contained story, but there are references, for example issue 13 starts in the Danger Room with Wolverine sparring the young students and he's talking about how a lot has changed and a bunch of students gone.jtg3885 said:Although I've got to wonder how they place it, given that I don't remember seeing any of Sentinel Squad O*N*E, the 198, missing students, etc. in issues #13+...
I would say AXM does more character development than anything. Like right before the HoM, they make reference to a rift between Xavier and Scott. In the same thread, Brubaker makes reference to the rift between Xavier and Scott having started with the Danger storyline.vintsukka said:Whedon is pretty much writing around it so that ASM is a pretty self-contained story, but there are references, for example issue 13 starts in the Danger Room with Wolverine sparring the young students and he's talking about how a lot has changed and a bunch of students gone.
But that self-contained thing does also mean that he can't make any changes, which was your point. I'm not arguing here, I just clarified about the placement.
Newsarama said:JQ: Nam, JR has three projects on his docket that follow Eternals. One of which you may or may not know is Fantastic Four: The End written by Stan Lee. Johnny only has a few pages left and we will hopefully be able to talk more about it sometime after Eternals. But, immediately following The Eternals, Johnny will be drawing our big summer blockbuster story for next year. While this will not be a massive line wide crossover like House of M or Civil War, it's a huge story. Let's just say that there's going to be more punching and hitting than any comic perhaps in recent memory.
ProjectX2 said:It's already been announced that Alan Davis is writing and drawing Fantastic Four: The End, so... wtf?
And another summer blockbuster story? I'm summer blockbustered out.
And you all said I was crazy! :crazy:"Iceman Geek" asks: Hey, Joe, how's it goin'? I was wondering about something I know Hitch had mentioned sometime late last year, I believe. He said he was working on a new project, that was going to come out in a year (so end of 2006) and that it was going to be announced during this summer, but I haven't read anything new that Hitch will do after The Ultimates vol.2. So when will we hear about this mystery project?
JQ: One project at a time, Iceman, we'll be talking about Bryan Hitch and his new project in due time. I hope you're saving your money.
Q - Iceman Geek: Hey Joe. Been wondering when we would see Sean Chen with his next project. He is still working for Marvel right?
JQ: Yo, Iceman Geek, yes, he is absolutely still with Marvel. Sean is currently working on issues #32-34 of Sensational Spider-Man and here is some of his amazing art, hope you dig ‘em!
Q - The Skoot: Given recent events, is the current arc on Astonishing X-Men pre- or post-Civil War?
JQ: Hey Skoot, I went in to Editor Nick Lowe’s office to get the answer directly from the source. Well, Nick isn’t really the source but he does speak to the source or “The Whedon” as we like to refer to it. For some reason Nick isn’t anywhere to be found, his office mates said he just ran out like he was afraid of something, but he did leave this note.
Post! It takes place when the last issue comes out. At that moment in continuity. Please don’t hurt me- NL
Well, there you have it!
