“New Exiles” variant cover revealed

“Exiles” wrapped up its run today with #100.  The story will continue in “New Exiles” No. 1 by Chris Claremont and Tom Grummett. Marvel revealed the variant cover by Michael Golden today.

Information from Marvel:

Marvel is proud to reveal legendary artist Michael Golden’s new variant cover to the highly-anticipated New Exiles #1, ushering in a new era for fan-favorite team! Written by iconic X-Men scribe Chris Claremont, with art by Tom Grummett and a standard cover by superstar Greg Land, New Exiles #1 assembles a brand new team of heroes to protect the Omniverse. With new leaders, new worlds and new adversaries, this team of Exiles are about to face their greatest threat yet—that is, if they can survive each other first!

It’s an all-new, all-different group of Exiles—let’s hope they all survive the experience in New Exiles #1, featuring stunning covers by Greg Land and Michael Golden!

 I remember in one of Tom Brevoort’s editorial simulations on his blog that “Exiles” had been a remarkably stable seller throughout the run.  I wonder if this relaunch means the sales had been flagging slightly.

(I also seem to remember Dave Sim saying “Cerebus” sales peaked at No. 100, and while there’s certainly little “Exiles” had in common with “Cerebus,” there could be some conventional wisdom that relaunching after No. 100 may be a way to get two semi-artificial sales spikes.)
