Haven't had time to read them yet though. I guess i should probably look into Uncanny X-men too. Do you have any trouble keeping storylines straight when reading both? Do you have a subscription, or do you go to a shop each month?
They're mostly self-contained storylines that are about different teams/characters, so it's not hard to keep them straight.

The newest 'X-Men' run is about an all-female squad of the mainstream X-Men who are now led by Wolverine. Some members are Psylocke, Storm, Rachel Grey, and Jubilee. Uncanny is about a militant splinter cell that is run by Cyclops, and has people like White Queen, Magneto, and Magik.

A loose analogy would be that Wolverine is the new Xavier and Cyclops is the new Magneto, if that makes sense.

I have a local shop I usually go to for my can't-miss titles, but other stuff I try to wait until an collection or an omnibus comes out.
