NEWS: Liu, Perkins Take Over “Astonishing X-Men”

Astonishing X-Men by Mike PerkinsMarvel announced that Marjorie Liu and Mike Perkins will be taking over Astonishing X-Men starting with issue #48.

This will be Liu’s first true team book at Marvel, having written past series like X-23 and Black Widow that featured a solo character but as well as a recurring cast of secondary characters.

The book will not feature Mr. Sinister or Gambit’s ties to the Marauders despite them being the main antagonists. X-23 will not be present because of her membership in the Avengers Academy.

As for the book’s focus, X-Editor Nick Lowe had this to say:

 “This is the book that’s on Wolverine’s side that doesn’t give you the classes. That’s the role that this book plays. It gives you the non-school-centric team on Wolverine’s side.”
