    If you can get past the ridiculously high price for so few story pages, you'll find a lot of interesting ideas and fantastic visuals packed into this comic. But its brevity adds to its feeling of incompleteness, and I don't know what Ellis has planned for the second (and final) issue, but I hope it does more than just provide intriguing windows into alternate superhero realms.

    Most glaring of all is the fact that neither story carries much of an X-Men flair. Switch out a few familiar faces and the stories could easily be taking place in another Ellis book like Planetary. Is that all Ellis' Astonishing run is going to amount to - a series that seems culled from unused plot points in other books? His work carries an inherent charm regardless, but I expect a lot more given the pedigree of Astonishing X-Men in the past. Read Full Review

    All-in-all, this is a disappointment and I wouldn't really recommend you spend your money on it unless you have the overwhelming desire to keep your Ghost Boxes Collection complete. Read Full Review

    I can't really recommend this book to anyone but the most hardcore fans. While it is fun seeing the other alternate universes, there is not enough substance or story to justify the $3.99 price tag. Read Full Review
