    Default Whedon's Astonishing X-Men Mega thread

    i am very late in the game on this....nonetheless....

    i picked up the first collecting of Whedo's Astonishing X-men...issues 1-6.....

    wow.

    There was character development, great interaction, a sense of humanity mixed with heroics, and quotable lines on almost every page.

    The other X titles sorta pale. New X-Men is the only other one with a voice as unique as this, and it is getting the can.

    If all the X-titles were as inspired as this....we would be prosperous...i say!

    Here's a tip, stop with #1-#6. It all goes downhill from there. Dangerous is especially bad.

    Yeah despite what some whedonites may say Astonishing x-men is a big disapointment, that has the occaisional kewl moment, but is mostly crap on a stick.

    i haven't read the rest of the series.

    Nonetheless, the first six issues should set an example for how a comic should be made.

    Warren Ellis...i like New Universal a lot....who knows what he will do.

    Interesting how the comic is not even in contiuity.....the other titles are a big blob of clones, action, alternate realities, children from alternate realities, and so on.

    The craftmanship was perfect on these issues. New X-Men had a lot of unique inspiration also...i will be sad to see it go.

    X-Factor also has an interesting concept, tho i have not been able to warm up to it as quickly. i do love Layla.

    Of all the comics, i really found Uncanny...the flagship of the rest...to be the weakest. Anyone else feel this way?

    Where are you getting that the book isn't in continuity?

    Well it is....but it acts quite separate from the other titles. Not as much blending...if that makes sense.

    I'm not a Whedonite, have never watched his shows, but I enjoy it just fine.

    That's pretty much true of most books. Unless a crossover is going on.

    It's a conceptual clusterfuck... Whedon's not fit to lick Morrison's bootstraps, much less feebly try to follow his genuis.

    Poor Kitty & Lockheed. :(

    That's a bit much. It's not the greatest thing since sliced bread, but it's better than most of Morrison's stuff.

    I think it is definitely worth reading the rest of the 24 issues, especially since you don't have to wait months between each one. I enjoyed each arc overall, and there are so many moments where I just cheered on the characters.
    wow.
    paft.yaiekes!.
