I am, well, kind of excited.
I have been waiting years for this! Now if only they would release a little bit more information...
Yes, I know I am crazy :D

How are things going over in the X books? The only one I read is Astonishing, and that's not even going to be a part of the crossover. What's this Endangered Species story all about? I might actually pick up the X comics for this crossover.

To sum up the last few years.
House of M. Wanda Maximoff says "No.More.Mutants." and whaddya think happens?
roughly 200-300 mutants left, and that number has dwindled even further(killings, and attacks, etc.)
Rouge and her team(Cannonball, Cable, Mystique, Iceman, Lady Mastermind, Sabertooth, and Karima(Omega Sentinel)) have been facing dire threats, including Exodus, and some new acolytes.
X-men 200 and The Endangered Species One shot are the prolouges to a 2-tiered crossover (Think Phalanx-Covenent)
Part 1. Endangered species wiill run as backups in X-men, X-factor, Uncanny and New X-men from July till October.
Part 2. "The Messiah Complex" will run in all 4 titles for 3 months. It will involve the birth of the first mutant since M-day, as Multiple Factions(Including X-men, Purifiers, Sinister and gang, and more) Seek to use the event to their own ends.
And maybe some food for thought. Uncanny X-men will be at 494 when this crossover ends. Can you say smash-bang 500th issue next year?

The X-Men titles have really been hitting on all cylinders, lately, I think.
Ed Brubaker's first arc (Rise and Fall of the SHi'ar Empire) was a little over-long I think, but solid.
X-Men has been decent, but not great. Still solid , though, IMO.
New X-Men is an iffy one for me. The stories are good and it feels like it has its own identity, but there are so many deaths in that title that it can be a bit of a downer.
X-Factor, is, hands down, the best X-title right now IMO. While Peter David has never been mu favorite writer, he crafts an intriguing story, great characterization, and unpredictable twists that don't always involve the death of a major character. It s well balanced in both light moments and darker ones. Severely underrated.
