  1. Is this series still being made? I coulda sworn the last issue was printed on vellum and distributed by a Carrier Pigeon riding a Dodo.

    I think I am hintin in my subtle way that the delivery of this series may be a tad slow.

  2. Fine by me, I much prefer this artwork to the stuff in Xenogenesis.

  3. Really? Well, ok.

  4. @cubs I totally disagree with that. I think the art in Xeno is what kept me reading.

  5. "Is this series still being made?"

    Until this arc is over, yes. 

  6. @vadamowens  To each their own; I find on Xenogenesis that Emma Frost looks like Ms. Piggy and the overall style is a significant departure from what I want to see on this book.  Jimenez is more classic and at least harkens some back to John Cassaday’s run on the book

  7. That’s exactly why I like it.  Never seen anything like this on an X-title.

  8. It’s been half a year since the last issue? ASTONISHING…..

  9. …oh come on, it was only December.

  10. Meh, at least it’s only $2.99.

  11. Yay, my girl is on the cover!!  As far as Kaare vs. Jimenez it’s apples & oranges.  I like both of their work, but for totally different reasons.  

  12. Finally!  Astonishing #31 was the first actual comic book that I bought in issue form.  I loved it and the subsequent issues.  Jiminez’s art is awesome.  The plot hasn’t been too deep, but the action was great.  The training and teamwork of the X-men is showcased extremely well.  The scene with Beast fighting the Sentinel with the Blackbird’s harpoon… awesome!  Very enjoyable overall… then the 6 month wait.  But it’s finally here.


    Kaare’s art on exogenesis is different.  Aside from Emma, I like it alright.  But Emma is drawn so funky… like the guy said, it’s like she’s miss piggy.   Storm looks amazing though.

  13. @zattaric Don’t get me wrong. Jimenez does fantastic work.  I think I just really dig the feel of what Kaare is doing on Xenogenesis.

  14. So yeah, I really loved this issue. It had everything–great art, awesome fight sequences, great interactions with each of the team-members, interesting plot…and I understand what’s going on. It’s everything I want in an X-comic.

  15. I’d much rather have Simone Bianchi back than Jiminez or the garbage that is Xenogensis.

  16. @femzy lol. nice

  17. Bianchi suck asses! I can’t believe he’s still working in comics.
