    I'll go ahead and stop this review here, since I'm afraid what else will come out if I keep going. I was sorry to see this anthology bomb as badly as it did in my eyes. Even though I liked the start of the Punisher/Wolverine story, it isn't enough for me to go back next month. The other "to be continued" stories aren't intriguing enough for a next months viewing. Disappointing, Marvel. Very disappointing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Feb 8, 2009

    Paul O'Brien's sales chart analysis of the last "Marvel Comics Presents" that ended in August 2008 showed the book shedding 70% of its sales over those 12 months. I'm a little surprised that Marvel's giving the ongoing anthology title format yet another try, and so quickly at that. If this is the best that Marvel's going to offer up, I suspect that "Astonishing Tales" will not astonish anyone with a swift cancellation. This is a book that felt like it was full of old inventory stories, and that's not going to end up being much of a draw for anyone. Read Full Review
