  1. Hi Lindsay! First, it’s great to see you guys back over here. Hope you’re ok. 🙂

    Second, I’m totally looking forward to Marjorie Liu writing NYX. Just to say, it’s not a “re-release” of the comic book. It’s a brand new mini-series which re-launches a team of young mutants in the X-universe. It’s the first time Marjorie’s actually written a Marvel comic book.

  2. Hi Karen!
    You’re right. It’s a RE-LAUNCH, not a RE-RELEASE. The wording is poorly handled in the article, especially with info like this:

    IGN Comics: Will this new volume be a limited series? When will it launch?

    Barber: Right now, we’re just looking at the first six-issue story arc, launching in August.
