Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of newer comics, however given that it was X-Men, I gave it a shot. It’s about par-for-the-course for standard Marvel comics. The storyline was somewhat original, and the characters were quite familiar. The only things that irked me were the portrayal of Beast and Emma Frost. Still, as it was, I still enjoyed it quite a bit, as it was fairly well written and kept my interest for about an hour and half.
Astonishing X-Men Ultimate Collection, Book 1 includes issues #1-12.
