He’s given his life to designing the death of the mutant race and with the X-Men at his doorstep, he’s preparing to unleash one more genetic nightmare upon the world before his time runs out.

  1. It seems like only a year ago this story started…oh wait…it was

  2. I so don’t care about this storyline anymore.  What’s the next arc about?  I hope it’s better.

  3. Nice art. Boring story. I’m out!

  4. I have to read this even though I really don’t want to;)

  5. @ctrosijr- I think you’re joking, but perhaps not.  but the third issue of the next arc should be out any week now.

  6. The sad thing is Astonishing was like the one subscription I have left. Quite a value, that one, a two year subscription that has run like 6 years.

  7. @ABirdseysView: No, I was serious.  I guess I should clarify.  I don’t consider the mini-series, "Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis," the next arc because, well, I get a subscription to "Astonishing X-Men" and Marvel is not sending me copies of the mini-series, so they clearly don’t think its the next story arc either.  Now, the answer may be that there are no plans for Astonishing proper after this issue.  I have to admit that I haven’t seen (or looked for) any "Astonishing X-Men" solicits recently.  I was just wondering if there were any plans out there for this title not related to the mini-series.

  8. I hope that they just end this series with this issue and continue to do mini-series like Xenogenesis.  That should help with delays (if they have it all in the can first) and people can jump on or off depending on the creators / storyline


  9. I think the series proper is over after this.  "Astonishing" became a line of minis.

  10. Wow, i completely forgot about this.  I wonder if I’ll get this from DCBS or if they dropped it from my list due to how long its been like they did with Red Mass for Mars #4.  Either way, i don’t really care at this point.

  11. Is this cover an homage to Contest of Champions #3 (1982)?

  12. I actually liked the end of this story. The last page was rubbish, but the idea of a villain that was basically a normal world mutant who was pissed they weren’t an attractive X-Men I thought was pretty cool. It reminded me a lot of Grant Morrison’s run.

  13. Well, that happened.

  14. Not worth the wait at all but I still like Warren Ellis’s characterisation. 

  15. Did the guy ever think about just getting plastic surgery? Come on!

  16. So, is this title done or what? If not, I hope someone other than Ellis is writing.
