    Wonderful to see Comics come to the Nook Color

    The nice feature is that with the Nook Color or Nook Tablet and the new 1.4 software update, you can open and view these comics without the need for any other software application. Outside of that, the Marvel Comics continue to be well written. This one is for the Astonishing X-Men volume 1.

    Gelati's Scoop

    The number of words in this post is going to be few. I am at a loss to adequately describe what I got to be a part of .The X-Men have been a big part of my collection from the number one issue. They were one of the cornerstones of the collection I had till I had to let it go. That being said this graphic novel is probably one of the best executed graphic novels I have ever seen. It is just that good.
    The team of Joss Whedon and John Cassaday just blew me away. The story lines were intense and the artwork not only matched that but took it to a new level for me. Cassaday's artwork is some of the best I have ever seen in a graphic novel and the words and art fit like a glove. This is two masters of the genre at the top of their game; I loved every frame and every word. The team they have constructed headed up by Cyclops is nice and tight, the subplots are intense and the continuing action is amazing. I enjoyed the cameo by the Fantastic Four, it was brief but felt right and was a good addition. The attention to the smallest detail in both characters and artwork took this to a new level.
    Unfortunately the comparisons I will make in my head about the graphic novels I look at for a while will travel back to this, Astonishing X-Men. To try to grab the same heart, emotion, intensity and quality of Weldon's writing will be difficult. The artwork will probably stay atop my charts for many months to come; it just fit the story frame for frame so well. The quality contained within these pages is rare and exciting to hold, don't pass this up. If you are a big X-Men fan, this is a must read, if you enjoy reading at all and want to hold a stick of dynamite, this is for you. I don't hesitate to recommend this to anyone, put this on your Goodreads and Shelfari -to read- list and move it to the top.

    Whedon & Cassaday astonish!!!!!

    Joss Whedon does what Grant Morrison never did, and that is understand the X-Men. Beautiful art by Joohn Cassaday makes this book almost excellent. New villians are shown here and are interesting and uncomplicated without being simple. Really fantastic stuff that whets your appetite for the rest of their run.

    I Also Recommend:

    Best of Whedon

    This is one of the best books written by Joss Whedon. Whedon is a highly talent writer on television and film, and he brings his unique style to a great group of characters. His ability to make you laugh in even the most serious of moments will keep you wanting more. I highly reccomend this for any X-Men fan as well as fans of Joss Whedon's other work (Buffy the Vampire Slauer, Angel, Firefly/Serenity, Runaways, etc.).

    Great story!

    Great story. I haven't been this excited to pick up X-Men since Age of Apocalypse. The drama between this team is great. Also the story has many twist and turns, surprises and guest stars.

    Good book

    Not a big x-men fan but i enjoyed this story and its art. I always thought kitty was a 2nd rate hero but if you think about her powers she is pretty unstopable.
