Expectations were high when Joss Whedon was announced as the writer of the new Astonishing X-Men series. With Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Whedon had created one of the most popular TV shows of the 1990s; now, teamed with superstar artist John Cassaday, he was taking on the best-selling X-Men. Their storyline took inspiration from the classic sagas of the '70s and '80s, while forging ahead with a thoroughly modern take on the mutant team.
From the opening pages of a Sentinel attack to the unexpected return of a beloved X-Man, Whedon and Cassaday kept fans breathlessly awaiting each new chapter of their epic story. Now, the complete saga -- acclaimed as "Series of the Year" by Wizard magazine and a "Must Have Gift" by TV Guide -- is collected across two softcover volumes.
Collecting the Astonishing X-Men (2004) issues #1 through to 12, written by Joss Whedon, pencilled and with cover artwork by John Cassaday.
