Wow. This is actually pretty good news. I've met Kirkman, and he's a hilarious and clever guy. I predict that he'll do well on the title.

What else has Kirckman done? I've heard good things about him but don't know what he's done. I'm gonna miss Vaughan :(
He's the writer for Marvel Team-Up and Invincible (Image). And of course, he's going to do Marvel Zombies.

Great news!!! Kirkman is a really good writer, and he's great with a big cast, as proven with The Walking Dead. I'm all for him in this title!!

He's a good follow-up to Vaughan. We shouldn't lose any steam with Kirkman on the title. And the artists are nice picks, as well.

There's confusion here.... So is Kirkman going to fill-in before Singer, since Singer's name is not mentioned at all. I don't mind if it's Kirkman though.

Yes. Kirkman is doing two arcs before Singer comes on.

You know what sucks? Millar off Ultimates and Vaughan off UXM. Do these guys have boards and Q&A's?

Does a writer honestly need a message board to be a good writer? :?

I'm glad Loeb and Kirkman are the new writers. I enjoy both writers' work.

I thought he was doing three arcs.

first arc: Raney
second arc: Dillon
third arc: Raney

And high five indeed, ice!

Oh, sorry. Yes, three. Was thinking of something else, my bad.

YESSSSS!!!! Best news of the week!



I was really not looking forward to the end of BKV's run on UXM (I still am gonna be sad when it's over, though), but KIRKMAN is freaking awesome, and I can so see him doing well on this title. Dillon and Raney, in my mind, go well with Kirkman's writing, too. Wow. This PLUS an FF crossover PLUS Singer/McNiven (whenever the hell it happens) : UXM is my favorite book now. :D



Oh, and: BUY MARVEL TEAM-UP. :roll:
(It's kind of a no-brainer)
