    A very good conclusion to Whedons run Amazing story telling with awesome artwork I really loved his portrayal of Scott in this one

    It took a few years but I finally have my second volume of the Astonishing X Men hardcover completing Joss Whedon’s and John Cassaday’s twenty five issue run in the titleThis hardcover collection like the one that precedes it contains two story arcs with the last culminating in an oversized “giant sized” issue The first story “Torn” features the return of a new incarnation of a classic X Men nemesis the Hellfire Club or is it? With psychics one can never be too sure how much your perception of reality is twisted in the presence of one Kitty Pryde gets her Wolverine moment here With the mansion seemingly invaded and losing control over her phasing powers she falls miles underground but manages to compose herself enough to stop in an underground scream Wading in hip deep water she turns around makes her statement to her foes declaring “My turn”Kitty mounts her counter attack only to find the rest of her team out of commission Cyclops and Colossus are comatose; with the Beast chasing deer with his mind devolved to that of his moniker a beast Wolverine though his mind was regressed to that of pre teen James Howlett a wimpy sissy boy is a adorable personality than the tough guy persona he usually projects Emma Frost appears to have finally showed her colors and betrayed the teamIn “Unstoppable” the X Men just moments removed from the aftermath of their harrowing encounter in the previous arc are whisked away by teleporter and appear on the bridge of a spacecraft Agent Brand and SWORD need superheroes and have enlisted the X Men to help stop the rising danger of imminent destruction to two worldsThere is a feeling of déjà vu reading this collection I have read this before This is Whedon channeling the Dark Phoenix Saga without Jean Grey or the Phoenix Like the original story the team is tested body and soul by the Hellfire Club and abducted from the scene of their last battle to find another one in an alien world and be judged by an alien race It also ends with the sacrifice of one the X Men’s numberWhedon end his run on the title with an oversized issue allowing Cassaday extra pages to draw as much Marvel’s New York’s finest superheroes as he can possibly fit in the panels He does not disappoint he draws a beautiful two page spread of Spider Man in mid swing over the Manhattan skyline enough to draw your breath awayWhedon’s and Cassaday’s run of twenty five issues of Astonishing X Men is a modern classic of X Men storytelling Well written and well drawn Whedon moves away from the socio political commentary reality television shows and mutant gang warfare He just writes comics the way they are supposed to be and that is to astonish

    Pretty much eual in uality to the first two arcs Torn is a bit weird and works better on a reread Unstoppable is probably my favourite arc and does an admirable job of tying all the threads together Whedon does an especially good job of exploring Cyclops and Emma and personally I think no one has ever written their relationship as well as he does The ending is bittersweet in a way that really works and thoughtfully leaves in the ways to undo it My only real complaint is that cyclops gets his visor back with no real explanation I would have preferred he remain able to control his abilities for awhile longer

    In sharp contrast to my avengers forever review this was a fantastic series The storyline was always compelling the characters well developed and some excellent twists and revisiting of the X Men's history A great adventure that I couldn't put down The difference in my reading experience between this and the avengers collection was like night and day A great bookI also loved seeing the emails between Joss Whedon and his publishers when the project was still in development

    JesusAstonishing X Men by Joss Whedon ladies and gentlemen Here it is The conclusion to one of the best comic book creator runs in the history of comic books It really doesn’t get any better than thisThe first act is heavy with the confusion That might seem intimidating but rest assured it’s deliberate and all of your uestions will be satisfactorily answered After the second coming of spoiler villain we push into what serves as the main story This is where the whole series comes full circle And man it really doesEveryone’s personal journey is so important here It all matters The “main character” is the X Men as a whole although the MVP recipient may surprise you We get to know our whole cast in ways that other X titles simply don’t even breach John Cassaday is a god among men I’m not even going to debase his work by trying to describe it It’s simply perfect The thing that really stands out to me about Whedon’s now legendary Astonishing X Men run is the top notch character writing It speaks to my heart but also my sense of sarcasm His characterizations are so grounded and personal Their interactions remind me of how actual people who know each other interact Whedon knows that real people don’t litter their interactions with exposition and perfectly constructed sentences They just “talk”This is a very human work It won’t disappoint

    Oof thanks for once again traumatizing me Joss Whedon Aside from that there was a lot of the clever word play humor you'd expect and content wise some definitely adult situations Worth reading for sure if you're a Joss Whedon fan and you can tolerate the content

    See review of vol 1 but damn Joss Whedon I forgot how much you love to hate your fans as things come to a close


  8. says:

    Wow this was kicking around a 4 to 45 star book until Joss Whedon hits a grand slam with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninthwow What a great storyteller

    I hate it when a fantastic book ends on a cliffhanger and you just want to carry on reading I could not put this down
