Astonishing X-Men #25

Writer: Warren Ellis
Art: Simone Bianchi

Not too much to say here. I wasn't disappointed really, just kind of sad that Whedon's run is over. Warren Ellis had a really tough job to follow up on that, and I thought he put in a good effort. It just didn't really click, like what we were used to. Ellis did provide some good lines and some laughs (Frost calling Wolverine a ferrett that itches its privates), but there was just nothing that happened in this issue. They basically sat around and talked about stuff, and Beast got into some crazy theories about genes that always throws me off. I still feel that the characters are established enough, that you feel a certain chemistry, despite the dialogue not being up to par as Whedon. There was just not enough here to really rave about. It was solid, and its still one of the better X titles around, but I am waiting for something substantial to happen. By the way, Armor is a total scrub. The best part about here is that part where Wolverine said, thats like me being called Claws. She is no Kitty Pride though. This gets a very low

Basically what he said except I hated the dialogue [more] and thought it came across as forced. He was trying to create that Whedon chemistry with the banter and all but it didn't work, it just seemed frivolous.

SKIM IT
