Pete love!

SQUEE

Paul Cornell, of the 'Wisdom' mini-series is going to be taking over New Excalibur (sayonara Claremont!) and Warren Ellis is going to be taking Astonishing X-Men. I AM IN FUCKING COMIC HEAVEN.

Newsarama: ...is there anything specific that fans can be looking forward to reading when they read Warren Ellis' Astonishing X-Men?

Warren Ellis: Oh, the usual, you know. Raping your childhoods, using my position to destroy everything you love, displaying opinions you may not agree with and writing with my own voice and personality. All the things people hate in commercial comics these days. And yet, all the things I am specifically hired for.It's a funny old world.

I think, once this comes out, I will be able to die happy. <3 Does anyone know where Joss Whedon's run of Astonishing is at right now? I want to know who's died, who's alive, that sort of thing. I can't wait to find out who will be the team when Ellis picks them. And I'm expecting, if Kitty's part of his team, she might even MENTION Pete Wisdom actually EXISTS. SHOCK!! PSAG!! NO WAI!!
