Astonishing X-Men Saga

™ and © 2006 Marvel Characters, Inc.

Missed the critically acclaimed and fan-favorite first year of Joss Whedon and John Cassaday’s X-Men run? Never fear, this one-shot brings you up to speed by recapping all 12 issues, with selected art and text, so that you’ll be all set for issue 13’s release, some six months after issue 12. What’s Kitty doing back? Is that Colossus, back from the dead? Who’s Ord? Can Emma Frost be trusted? And has the Danger Room evolved into something far beyond its humble beginnings? All your questions are answered here.

Those who bought the issues might enjoy this recap, which features reproductions of all the original covers as well as background information on all the heroes and villains. Mostly, though, the ad-free comic gets new fans ready for the next year of Whedon-Cassaday stories.
