So, Wolverine and the X-Men has always been collected in hardcover first, and trade paperback further down the line. But as of Volume 5, it looks as if the series will start being collected in paperback form first. It's not just Volume 5, but Volume 6 as well. It's not a huuuuuge deal, but most series that are collected in paperback form first are the ones that don't sell as well as the ones that are collected in hardcover form first. For Wolverine and the X-Men to be downgraded, it must not be selling as well as Marvel hoped/it used to. It's no critical darling either.
Notably, Uncanny X-Men Volume 1 will be collected in HC, as will both first volumes of All-New. Has Bendis (eight issues in) already not only dethroned Aaron but pushed him to the ground and forced him to lick his boots? Will All-New X-Men end up absorbing Wolverine and the X-Men?
Is this the beginning of the end?
Personally, I'm sad because I don't want to collect the paperbacks. It'll ruin my collection. q___q
