Fear the line-wide crossover Itself

Looks like Marvel is really intent on burying themselves this time, with a company line-wide event called Fear Itself, and even the X-Men won't emerge unscathed this time:
"In 'Civil War,' the X-Men sort of opted out. In this, they don't have the luxury of opting out," Alonso told CBR. "As the X-Men group editor, I'm champing at the bit to get them more integrated in the Marvel Universe, and they will be in a major way here. They brokered a deal in 'Civil War,' so [their absence] was as simple as that. But they're going to be involved in a big way in 'Fear Itself.'"
They may not have the luxury of opting out, but we the audience do. Mainly because even if the books involved aren't 4 dollars, the cost of only so many books together will make it very UN-luxurious. This is clearly their slap in the face to anyone who thought Marvel was really going to avoid raising their prices any further than they already were.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
