Astonishing X-Men: Ghost Boxes Is A Hit!

Warren Ellis does it again! This time the legendary scribe teams up with superstar artists Alan Davis and Adi Granov to bring you into the stone cold psyche of Subject X. ASTONISHING X-MEN: GHOST BOXES #1 (of 2) is a nonstop romp through dystopic Marvel universes where the sadistic Agent X-13 has completed his mission. Not only does this director's cut style issue have two awe inspiring stories, but it also provides a unique look into the creative process behind crafting these tales with a look at Warren Ellis' script! "Editing Warren Ellis is like being handcuffed to a jumper...who leaps onto the downiest pillow ever," said Executive Editor Axel Alonso. Critics and fans agree-ASTONISHING X-MEN: GHOST BOXES is a hit! "Any fan of the start of Ellis's run on Astonishing, or even of his other works like Planetary and even his straight sci-fi work should feel right at home," said Lucas Siegel of Newsarama.Com. "A great read with great art, this is worth the read for all fans of the X-Men, hardcore and casual alike. I can't wait to read the second issue." Timothy Callahan of ComicBookResources.com raved, "You'll find a lot of interesting ideas and fantastic visuals packed into this comic" Alex Rodriguez from ComicsBulletin.com exclaimed, "The art is beautiful, reminiscent of futuristic period films such as Steamboy. What the art team does with the X-Jet is incredible. The use of off colors with rich browns and golds give the entire section a very rustic and industrial feel that suits the X-Men perfectly." As the mystery of Subject X unfolds, the X-Men get closer and closer to figuring out just how the Ghost Boxes work. Just who was Agent X-13 working for and what is the goal they're working towards? With other Marvel Universes seemingly in ruin, is there any hope for our team of mutants? In ASTONISHING X-MEN: GHOST BOXES #2 (of 2) sees Ellis teaming with two more superstar artists-Olivier Coipel (Thor) and Kaare Andrews-as the limited series concludes with a bang!
