Posted Friday, November 24, 2000, 7:56AM CST by Franklin Harris
Marvel Comics has finally announced which of its X-Men-related comics are getting the ax:
"Bishop" (last issue No. 16, now on sale)
"Gambit" (last issue No. 25, on sale in December)
"Generation X" (last issue No. 75, on sale in March)
"X-Man" (last issue No. 75, on sale in March)
"Mutant X" (last issue No. 32, on sale in April)
"X-Men: The Hidden Years" (last issue No. 22, on sale in July)
Meanwhile, two new X-Men series are in the works. One is the previously announced new title to be written by Chris Claremont, and the other, written by Judd Winnick, will revolve around a team of mutants led by Blink.
The surviving current X-titles are: "X-Men," "Uncanny X-Men," "Wolverine," "X-Force," "X-Men Unlimited," "Ultimate X-Men" and "Cable."
Marvel's 'Mutant X' comes to television
Posted Wednesday, November 29, 2000, 7:20PM CST by Franklin Harris
It was reported all over the 'net today (including Cinescape Online) that Tribune Entertainment ("Andromeda" and "Earth: Final Conflict") has picked up Marvel Comics' "Mutant X" as a TV series for the Fall 2001 season. Tribune has already cleared 60 percent of the U.S. for at least a two-year run. Philip Segal, best known for producing the Paul McGann "Doctor Who" telefilm, will be developing the series. (He was recently hired by Tribune to oversee scripts for all of its sci-fi series.) Ironically, Marvel announced last week that it was cancelling the "Mutant X" comic.
