    Is Whedon's run on Astonishing finished? What issue does it end? I only get the TPBs and I don't see vol. 4 listed on Amazon anymore. :confused: Vol. 3 came out back in February.

    It's not over yet but this is the last arc for this creative team. It ends at issue 24 I think

    Really? I like Runaways. I think Joss will be a good match there. Joss loves writing strong-willed, but, emotional wreak female characters. If that isn't Runaways I don't know what is. :mamoru:

    Yeah, it's 24 and they're taking their time. Runaways has been pretty good.

    It's not the first installment of Astonishing X-Men, but I guess you're talking about the current run.

    Joss Whedon and John Cassaday started with 12 issues, then expanded it to 24. They ARE taking their sweet fucking time, finishing up this last arc. The last book came out in like the beginning of June I believe.

    And the series will continue after 24, when Joss and John leave. They'll be replaced by Warren Ellis and Simone Bianchi. So, I think that's pretty fucking sweet...but I'm not sure. Ellis has never done the X-men before...and Bianchi's only marvel work was wolverine, which was AMAZING, but I'm excited to see how it'll look.
