X Marks the Spot

Before I get to today’s review, I wanna let y’all know that I’m expecting work to be a bit busier than normal, and I’ve got houseguests coming over next weekend — so blogging may be unusually light until next week.

Anyway, on to the review:


Astonishing X-Men #24

The team splits up, with Cyclops and Emma Frost staying back with Colossus at the site where a prophecy and/or a blueprint says he will destroy the Breakworld, and Beast, Wolverine, Shadowcat, Armor, Danger, and Agent Brand heading out to stop the planet-killer missile aimed at Earth. So is Peter actually going to decide, for some reason, to go ahead and blow up the Breakworld? And what’s the awful secret of that big, bad missile?

Verdict: Thumbs up, nominally. As always, good dialogue by Joss Whedon and gorgeous art by John Cassaday. But I ain’t at all sure about some of the weird plot twists in this one. Yeah, I know cliffhangers have to be pretty big to be effective, and maybe it all comes together in the end, but it really seems a bit senseless right now.
