I hae to agree with everyone about this one. Honestly the worst astonishing xmen book i have read. The part where forge comes into play deserved to have words behind it. Also the ending was horribly done.

Merideth says: This book, the first in the Astonishing X-Men relaunch without Joss Whedon, falls squarely in the "good not great" catergory. Ellis takes the story into a much more morally ambiguous place, with the much diminished X-Men, with a change in mission since mutants were virtually wiped out by the Scarlet Witch (House of M). It was interesting to see the team dynamic with a newly returned Storm, and see how the lack of mutants has changed the X-Men. This story delved a little bit too deeply into the X-Men backstory for me, but Ellis is an excellent writer, and managed to keep it accessible. Bianchi has a moodier style that former artist Cassady, but it fits with the newly grim X-Men.

I'm a big fan of Warren Ellis, which is why I picked this up, but this is one of his most generic efforts. The story is nothing special, and the dialog has little of Ellis's usual sparkle. If I hadn't known it was his I would never have guessed. Bianchi's draftsmanship is gorgeous, but the page layouts are often poor, and the action sequences difficult to follow.

Warren Ellis and his work have always been hit or miss for me in the past. I have loved some of his work while hating others. Here, sadly its much closer to hating it. His X-Men don't read like they've been the last two years or forty years for that matter. The villain's reveal was out of left field but not in a good way and the team's reaction to him and his demise was troubling. Simone Bianchi's art The characters looked ugly and dark but its just personal preference. Overall, this certainly doesn't live up to the hype.
