Uncanny X-Men ends in October...

Looks like Marvel's following DC's lead (again) by ending one of their signature books and hinting at the possibility of a reboot...

As posted in Newsarama and Marvel.com, this October will see the end of Uncanny X-men, with the long running series capping off when issue #544 hits comic stores and retailers that month. Obviously it has something to do with the fallout of Schism, the new X-event and storyline that ends around that time and acts as the X-men's version of Civil War, with Cyclops and Wolverine standing on divided fronts and duking it out. The cover also shows a disappointed Cyclops walking off the distance, with a big X on the background showing the original 5 members of the X-men (including Cyke himself) in it. No other info is attached in the teaser other than stating that it's "The Final Issue". For more info on the story, visit Newsarama and Marvel.com.

Oh yeah, I smell reboot again, and numbering no longer seems to be an important factor in comics. Gone are days...

As The Escpist's Bob Chipman says...

"COMICS ARE WEIRD."

I can't agree more with that sentiment.
