Marvel Launches X-Men Milestones TPB Line With Dark Phoenix Saga, Fall of the Mutants, Mutant Massacre

As part of their "finally giving the X-Men the respect they deserve again" initiative, Marvel has announced a new series of trade paperback collections featuring the X-Men titled X-Men Milestones, the mission of which is to allow readers to "relive the X-Men's best and the biggest storylines as their adventures remind you why the X-Men have been a cornerstone of the Marvel Universe for decades." The line will launch with three titles announced: Mutant Massacre, Fall of the Mutants, and the Dark Phoenix Saga. Will that last feature the first collection's foreword from Stan Lee? And will Chris Claremont's inclusion on all three of these "cornerstone" books finally convince Marvel to let him write something regularly? We'll find out soon, true believers!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
