I have pretty much no interest in this event -- Logan isn't really even in anything I'm reading -- but any excuse to feature X-23 will get my attention (unless Hopeless is writing it). Doubt I'll buy the whole mini, but I will definitely pick up her spotlight issue. Hope they actually read up on the relationship between the two of them.

I pity Brian Wood. There is almost no conceivable way he can live up to what Ellis has been accomplishing here (and the art team will have a heck of a job as well).
I picked this book up from the first issue knowing nothing whatsoever of Moon Knight and he has rapidly become one of my favorite people in the Marvel U.
And guess who turnes up in the next issue? Peter freakin Parker. *yawn*
First arc is just fine on the basis of its shock value, but I wonder what Bendis'll come with after killing off that Parker. Whole Miles Morales' career as Spider-Man was an uninspiring waste of both Marquez and Pichelli's talent (at least for me).
is that confirmed to even be "peter"
No. Not only is it not confirmed, but the absurdity of it being Peter is all Miles has really talked about, and he has several times basically told himself "it's gotta be a clone or something." If it turns out to really be Peter and Osborn, Miles is going to want an explanation just as badly as any reader.
Well, that Magneto cover's a shoe-in for one of the week's best.
Anyone have any thing to say about the All New X-Factor?
It's one of my favorite Marvel books running right now. Ships twice a month. Great team, and Peter David is one of Marvel's best writers.
Considering that these books are being announced in EW, my guess is they're already trying to target a non-comic-reading demographic here (especially with Academy). Not to say these won't be good for comic fans but I'm sensing more of a mainstream appeal here.
Anyway while I agree that the Batman-centric publishing model from DC is a bit ridiculous, this is the 75th anniversary so they're allowed to go a little overboard right now. IMHO.
I think I'd be okay with this event if it weren't Remender, but unfortunately his style is just way too violent (and arguably misogynistic-- though I'm not going to bother with that fight right now) for my tastes. Ever since his book pulled Rogue out of Wood's (with, by the way, no explanation or apology...though I guess that's on editorial as much as anyone), I've been annoyed by the power he has within the company.
So hopefully it's good and worth reading but I've gotta say I'm pretty relieved that (at least for now) none of the actual X-Men books are part of this.
@danhimself: I have quite the backlog of things I should "try to get my hands on," haha. Not least of which being X-Factor, which I've not read but have quickly regretted not reading thanks to how much I'm enjoying ANXF.
