Three Hundred Skottie Youngs?

skottie-youngMarvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso revealed the makeup of last week's Marvel Retreat to CBR, made of up writers "Brian Bendis, Dan Slott, Jason Aaron, Matt Fraction, Jonathan Hickman, Mark Waid, Rick Remender, Kieron Gillen, Sam Humphries and, making his debut, Skottie Young."

So naturally people are wondering what Skottie might be writing for the Marvel Universe.

I'm told, as ord starts to leak out of the retreat, that it's an X-book launching in March or April.

It might even be a revived X-Men Legacy, launching in March or April, with issue #300.

I'm guessing he may also be doing a variant cover for it.

And I'm sure Bleeding Cool's owners Avatar Press will also be grateful for Axel's plug about departing X-Men Legacy writer, Si Spurrier. "Si's a terrific and versatile writer — those 18 and older who aren't squeamish should definitely check out Si's "Crossed: Wish You Were Here" webcomic which is available free online — and he'll be flexing a lot of the same muscles on "X-Force""

Sadly, CBR chose not to run a link to the webcomic in question. Well, here you go – and Si Spurrier's new webcomic Disenchanted, while you're at it.
