NO - NOT THE COMIC BOOKS! But I made you panic for a second, didn't I?
I thought this was a bit ironic (taken from newsarama.com)
"Thursday Marvel Comics held their latest press conference, this month to promote the start of the upcoming second year of Joss Whedon and John Cassaday’s Astonishing X-Men, beginning with February's #13. In attendance were the usual Marvel suspects, along with Joss Whedon himself, who joined the call a few minutes after it began. "
Hmm... Joss Whedon was late? Come on. I can't believe it! He would NEVER be late...
Oh hang on... yes he would.
Wait, there's more: "...noting that this new run will be 12 issues, and be bi-monthly for issues #13 through 17 (February - August), and then monthly thereafter."
So, after several months of taking a break, the series will only be able to come out every other month. Well, I guess it's better to just say that up front than try to promise a monthly and not be able to deliver it.
Anyway, if you are an Astonishing X-Men fan, it is worth it to read the article (linked to at the top of the page) to find out about the plans for the next 12 issues.
