One of the all-time best superhero runs!
Written by Joss Whedon (Creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly, director of Avengers) with art by John Cassaday (Planetary, Star Wars, Uncanny Avengers).
Although there’s a seemingly-endless lineup of mutants in the Marvel Universe, Whedon condensed his team to a manageable strike force of Beast, Emma Frost, Cyclops, Colossus, Kitty Pryde, and Wolverine for his critically acclaimed Eisner Award-winning 24-issue run on ASTONISHING X-MEN. By completely avoiding interference from Marvel’s giant crossover events, Whedon was able to tell exactly the kind of story he wanted. This series introduced now-mainstay characters like Special Agent Brand and Blindfold while also bringing back some long-dead fan favorites. It has everything you’d expect from Whedon: snappy dialogue, incredible action set pieces, and some serious heart. We guarantee you’ll be breathless with suspense on AT LEAST three occasions.
