I just posted exciting news that Robert Kirkman’s Invincible is being turned into an animated series (hurrah) and now I bring sad news (boo).

Marvel Comics’ X-Men: Gold & X-Men: Blue comics are being cancelled.

According to Newsarama, both titles will come to an end in September once they reach issue #36 respectively. Sister publications, X-Men: Red, Astonishing X-Men and Weapon X will continue.

X-Men: Gold‘s final issue will hit shelves on Wednesday September 19th, with the final issue of X-Men: Blue arriving a week later on Wednesday 26th.

As a reader of both titles I’ll be sorry to see them go. X-Men: Gold in particular has become a firm favourite, so I’ll be sad to wave goodbye to Kitty and Co.
