"I hope people are realizing that this is a new era for the X-Men," said editor Nick Lowe. "We started the ball rolling with Endangered Species, kicked it into high gear with Messiah CompleX. Now Divided We Stand is showing the effects of both of those and leading to something even bigger. We're just getting started and it's a whole new

Editor John Barber explained, "It's great to see everybody-retailers and fans alike-this excited about all the pretty bold move, and it's a great book. That doesn't always mean a series will sell so well, but it's gratifying when it does. Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost put together a powerful story, and Clayton Crain's art is something to behold. It shows you can take chances with these comics, and people will take a look."

"Next month: Cable," said X-Men Group Editor Axel Alonso. "Get there early."

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on all Divided We Stand tie-ins, including the upcoming X-Men: Legacy #208 and Cable #1, as the x-titles continue to garner immediate sell-outs and growing critical acclaim!
