Astonishing X-men #12 cover art. Don't look back in anger?

And here's the standard Marvel blurb for this issue that comes out in June:

"This is it. The stunning conclusion to Joss Whedon and John Cassaday's year-long run on ASTONISHING X-MEN. As "Dangerous" draws to a finale readers will have to see to believe, the lives of the X-Men will NEVER be the same."

I'm guessing this finale will somehow tie in with "House of M". And presumably there will be a break of several months, and then #13 or Astonishing X-Men Vol 2 #1 will come out.

It's like Anton Corbijn's famous picture of Joy Division in the tube station.

Which means the guy looking back is gonna buy it.

(Keep in mind I have no idea who these characters are and I've never read X-men.)
Yes I can see what you mean. There is a shockling strong similarity between Cyclops' posture and Ian Curtis'.
Caroline - do you mean this photo? (Somebody hit me with a link if not.)
Nice Cover. Reminds me of a couple New Teen Titans covers.

Anyway if someone wants to check the complete rundown of Marvel titles being released in June you can check it here.

wren I was going with this pic, same photo session as your pic (I think).
Ah, thank you Simon. That's what I needed. Quite similar, indeed.
Awesome. Bonus points for the Joy Division tie-in. /sigh On a similar (and still offtopic) note I got to see New Model Army after waiting for about 12 years. Full band that is. Incredible. Sad that I didn't get to see them while Heaton was still around, but still... just wow.
Wow. It looks like Wolverine's put on a few pounds...
New Model Army, zeitgeist? Wow, that takes me back. I remember standing in the rain on a nice summer's day in Leeds about 15 years ago listening to them and Attila the Stockbroker play some protest gig in the town centre. Can't remember what we were protesting, but I do remember the NMA fanbase's eccentric fashion sense - combat boots and mullets, I think it was. Happy days.
Good catch on the Joy Division similarity.

This does not bode well.
Never fear, no one ever truly stays dead in the Marvel world.
For long anyway. :)
