Marvel.com: Allan Heinberg and Olivier Coipel play in the x-sandbox! If the fallout from “Second Coming” wasn’t enough to make you buy Uncanny X-Men #526, then how about a bonus story by two of the best talents in the industry? Allan Heinberg may be the busiest man in the world, splitting his time between television (“Grey’s Anatomy”) and comics (Avengers: Children’s Crusade, Young Avengers) but he couldn’t pass up an opportunity to write Cyclops, Magneto and Wolverine.

What does Magneto learn that sends him down a path that the rest of the world would rather he just stay away? And what does it mean to his relationship with the X-Men? Oh, and did we mention that the artist of Marvel’s Siege event was drawing it? Olivier Coipel’s first sequential work since illustrating the Sentry’s death and the new formation of the Avengers is in Uncanny #526. Don’t miss it!

So this looks like the set up for the cliffhanger in the latest issue of Avengers: Children Crusade. I sort of wished that Heinberg did a backup every month the title didn’t ship (Children’s Crusade is bimonthly) to keep the momentum going but I guess that is too much to ask for from him. I really do think Children’s Crusade will suffer from being bi-monthly. I mean seriously, 18 months to tell a 9 part story is all kinds of crazy.
