    In all, Astonishing X-Men Annual #1 is a solid X-Men comic, filled with entertaining character interactions and featuring an ending that somewhat turns on its ear the notion of what readers have come to expect from an X-book. It made this casual X-fan want to read more. What more can you ask of a comic? Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 14, 2018

    Astonishing X-Men Annual #1 is a unique read. It tries to tackle some complex ideas regarding tone, presentation, and handling the difficulties of ones life. It reflects on itself and the current state of X-Men comics, and it does so in an intriguing manner. Its not perfect and comes close to contradicting itself in parts, but its a compelling read, helped a lot by the artwork of Travel Foreman. This one earns a recommendation. Check it out tomorrow.
