It must be close to new solicitation time (and prep for San Diego Comic-Con), as Marvel is announcing a number of new comic projects. The latest sees the return of Ice Man from writer Sina Grace and artist Nathan Stockman.
The new series follows Iceman as he adjusts to super hero life after being a part of the X-Men…which isn’t as easy as he expects. “Iceman got to try his hand being a leader in the pages of X-Men Gold. While he’s fine enough running a team, he knows it’s not where his strengths are best put to use,” Grace told Marvel.com. “He’s still sorting out how he fits in this world when he discovers that morlocks are disappearing in the sewers. What he uncovers in the catacombs is far more terrifying than he could have imagined. From there? Things get really bad.”
This announcement from Marvel seems to have set off a small group of Internet peoples who aren’t happy this series is returning. If that is you, there are a couple of things you can do. The first is to not buy the comic. No one is saying you have to buy every X-men book published by Marvel. Of course Marvel would like you to buy everything with the X-Men on it, but that is also what caused a lot of problems for publishers (both Marvel and DC) in the 90s as they zoned in on the “it” thing and didn’t allow for a variety of characters and stories to be told. The second thing you can do if you aren’t a fan of this book is to move on to something you do like and embrace that.
Iceman #1 is scheduled to arrive on September 12th, 2018.
