[Jason Powell wrote this in a comment last week, and I wanted to elevate it to its own post:]
I suppose now is as good a time as any to say this, since others have asked me. (Which is, on the whole, very flattering, that people apparently are enjoying this blog-series enough to ask about future ones.)
Most of Claremont's latter-day X-Men stuff just isn't interesting enough to me to want to review them individually. X-Men: The End is dreadful; GeNext is a mess; Exiles was bland; Forever started out being at least fun, but is swiftly becoming a bore; as for his returns to the mainstream X-Men universe ("Revolution," X-Treme, the brief Alan Davis-Chris Bachalo run) ... I simply haven't read any of that. (Sorry, Jeff.)
I don't actually think Claremont has "lost it" to the same degree that the internet consensus has settled upon. Even as recently as 2003, he was putting out some entertaining material. But his work on X-Men is consistently uninteresting to me.
Obviously that still leaves a lot of stuff to look at: The New Mutants, Excalibur, the first ten issues of Wolverine ... but the other thing is simply time. This has been a very demanding longitudinal project. I am eternally grateful to Geoff for basically forcing me to do it and see it through to the end (Not to say that he's been a stern taskmaster or anything like that, but just knowing that I had a deadline -- and was writing for someone other than myself -- has kept me on task in a way that would not have happened if I'd been doing this on my own blog ... I would have stalled out long before now). I'm real proud of having produced so many words on a subject that I love.
But, frankly, I'm burnt out. I've given thought to other stuff -- my favorite non-X-Men Claremont works; the Claremont X spin-offs that were published in the golden window from 1975-1991; or another favorite longitudinal run, the Peter David Hulk -- but ultimately, I don't want to write about comics anymore, or at least not in such a demanding, long-term way. I'd really rather devote my time -- and what can laughingly be referred to as my "talents" -- toward other subjects. In particular, I'm keen to get away from going on at great lengths about other people's creative ventures, and start producing more of my own.
I guess that's the long answer. The short answer is, I'll do Claremont and Lee's X-Men #3, then probably a summary blog (like Geoff did at the end of his Morrison X-Men examination), and then I'm retiring from comics-blogging.
[But given people's interest in Post-1991 Claremont X-Men, this is the official call. If you think you have what it takes to pick up where Jason leaves off, and cover Claremont's X-Men post 1991 in an issue to issue capacity, send me a sample and Jason and I will pick a successor for Jason's freakishly large shoes. You can go at in any way you want as long as analysis outweighs summary.]
