Secrecy is apparently a thing of the past. Mere hours after Marvel sent out their May solicitations to retailers, the entire text listing found its way online at various sources which were linked to over at the Millarworld discussion forums.

The fever pitch surrounding the publisher’s X-Men Reload event resulted in the embargo date of February 25 being ignored in favour of revealing that the rumours of Joss Whedon and John Cassaday teaming up for a new Astonishing X-Men series in May were true. Also amongst the May solicitations are details of the new Excalbur and District X series’, New X-Men reverting back to adjectiveless X-Men, New Mutants evolving into New X-Men: Academy X, a new X-Men Reload-themed edition of the Official Handbook of The Marvel Universe, and more.

Without further ado, here is the solicitation text foir Marvel’s X-Men titles in May. Look for the complete solicitations, including preview images, online here at ComiX-Fan on Wednesday, February 25.
