From peculiar to just plain bizarre. Emma Frost's erratic behavior has the X-Men spinning in a non-stop downward spiral. Will an unlikely union be the final straw?

    There's a method to Whedon's writing that has been explained to me by friends who have watch Whedon's Buffy and Angel television shows. While that may or may not be true, Whedon keeps readers entertained and captivated. There's a level of intelligence to this issue and to this series in general because of Whedon's ability to tell a compelling story. This issue shows that you don't need non-stop action and adventure to tell a good story. Sometimes a good story comes from inside the characters and I think that even on a bad day, Whedon understands that and excels where many writers in the industry fail. Astonishing X-Men is probably the best developed and executed book Marvel, or any other company, publishes today. Read Full Review

    Of course, John Cassaday's artwork is phenomenal. Cassaday is just sick. I love his art. You couple Whedon's great writing with Cassaday's wonderful art and you have a mega-hit title like Astonishing X-Men. Read Full Review

    That final scene is meant to be a shocking cliffhanger, but it loses its potential impact. It makes no sense. Fortunately John Cassaday and Laura Martin provide their usual gorgeous artwork, and though mediocre, the story's far better than the last tale: Danger Room come alive and gone amok.
