Marvel To Issue More X-Men Licenses For 2017

img_5408Panini have the license to republish Marvel Comics titles in Europe, both on newstand and collected in bookstores.

Marvel UK/Panini have a wide range of trade paperbacks for sale, sometimes differing from the US versions, but they have very few books with the word X-Men in the title. There's a couple of monthly comics, but as for collections, they aren't allowed to, though Deadpool, Wolverine and AVX  snuck through. Regular readers might have an inkling as to why.


Well, I hear at MCM London Comic Con, that next year that is changing. And Marvel UK/Panini will once again be able to publish X-Men collections of next year. Just in time for ResurrXion.


Along with these Funko Pop vinyls, it does seem to be a sign that restrictions that saw posters, statues, T-shirt and other licenses removed in the way of Marvel's contre temps with Fox, are on the wane.

Marvel Comics are pushing an X-Men publishing relaunch in the spring of next year and have promoted Fox's upcoming X-Men TV shows in a way they haven't done for Fox's X-Men movies – which they all but ignored.

This also comes at a time with the Marvel company is divided against itself, with the Marvel Studios film brand separated from the rest of Marvel, reporting directly to Disney instead.

It appears that the enemy if my enemy is, once again, your friend.
