Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Everyone's favorite mutant superheroes are back in Astonishing X-Men Volume 3, a visually stunning collection of Marvel's "Astonishing X-Men" comics (#13-18) that continues the saga of X-Men like Wolverine, Cyclops, and Beast as they battle for their very existence against a mysterious group who call themselves the Hellfire Club.

The X-Men are adept at taking on and defeating all types of formidable villains -- but what happens when the enemy comes from within? Emma Frost, headmistress of the Xavier Institute, has been secretly communicating with members of the newly formed Hellfire Club, a group of criminal masterminds whose mission is simple: to destroy the X-Men. Among this assemblage of supervillains is Cassandra Nova, a supremely powerful entity who may have ulterior motives for defeating the X-Men. But as the Hellfire Club's brilliantly devious scheme is set in motion, only one lone X-Man stands in the way: Kitty Pryde, a woman whose ability to pass through solid objects may mean the difference between the X-Men's survival and their extinction. Meanwhile, a terrifying alien assassin closes in on the X-Man who is destined to destroy his homeworld…

As has come to be expected from Joss Whedon (creator of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly), his Astonishing X-Men story line is innovative, intense, and filled with innumerable wild and unexpected plot twists. This new incarnation of genetically advanced superheroes will impress X-Men fans of all ages. Two thumbs -- or more appropriately, two retractable adamantium claws -- up! Paul Goat Allen

    Confusion reigns in the 3rd trade!

    I was all on aboard for the first two trades from Whedon & Cassaday. Here however, I was taken aback by inclusion of confusion, runarounds, and conflicting ideas. It was all over the place. The only thing keeping the from being rated lower was Cassaday's art. A step back.
