  • The first in this series is still my favorite, but I plan to at least read the last of Joss Whedon's volumes I don't know if I'll read the whole series.


  • The X-Men are betrayed by someone close to them as a series of psychic attacks leave Cyclops in a coma, Beast going feral, Kitty phasing to the center of the earth, and Wolverine acting like a cowardly 19th century gentleman. Meanwhile, the alien from Breakworld who has future knowledge that an X-Man will destroy his planet has broken free of government custody and is on his way to the mansion to make a bad situation worse. All of which is a pretty average Wednesday at Xavier’s School for Gift [...]


  • Volvemos al nivel de la primera entrega, aunque entiendo que de nuevo estamos ante una nueva historia. No me ha terminado de convencer: demasiados frentes abiertos y traiciones a las que les faltaba lógica, y que no se terminaba de explicar. Me han gustado los giros de personajes como Scott, también el hecho de descubrir más mutantes y que algunos de los jóvenes estudiantes tuvieran sus escenas para brillar. Sin embargo, me he sentido confundido gran parte del cómic con parte de las tramas. [...]


  • WrensReads Review:MY GOODNESS, my head hurts.So the X-Men are comfy. They have fought of the two evils from the last book and they are finally bunking down and getting back to what they have been trying to do since they got together: teach the next generation.Well, little do they know that the real danger is among them and someone is about to betray and hurt every last one of them. Again, little do they know that pushing off the last two evils may bite them in the tush with a big, giant BANG.Bas [...]


  • Maybe not quite as amazing as the first two volumes, but still really, remarkably good. The Emma subplot is finally played out, and Well, I'm not entirely sure that the Big Reveal can hold up. That said, the whammy on Kitty was just wrenching, and I enjoyed every moment of Logan as Christopher Robin. Another fun collection, even if I'm not exactly looking forward to X-Men in Space, Take 176.


  • Review is also on: Rabbit Ears Book Blog Flashback:After finishing the second volume of the awesome “Astonishing X-Men” series “Dangerous,” I was definitely looking forward to reading the third volume of this series “Torn.” Imagine my pure delight after I had finished reading this volume since I was totally blown away by the twists and turns in this volume and I am sure that X-Men fans will enjoy this volume as much as I did!What is the story?Emma Frost has been acting strange ever s [...]


  • the most emotionally confusing volume of the whedon/cassaday run, in this reader's hearte basic concept, as in the second volume, is fascinating (if a bit similar to the concept in the second volume itself): what if someone played fantastic mindgames with the x-men, forcing them to become upsettingly-plausible alternate versions of themselves?but the engine behind that idea makes no sense. cassandra nova is alive? except she isn't? and she's been living in emma frost? except emma frost isn't emm [...]


  • After really enjoying Vol. 1 and 2, it was a little exasperating that the clarity takes a hit in Vol. 3. A lot of wacky stuff transpires to the team - and I don't mind twists to keep things interesting - but at times it was hard to follow who / what was doing who / what to who / what. (What? Exactly. LOL.) Yeah, it was "twistin' my melon" as Steve McQueen once said to director Norman Jewison. Still, complaints aside, it was still reasonably entertaining and I want to see what happens next to Kit [...]


  • The campy-named Hellfire Club and its roster of oddball villains sashay up to the Westchester School for a showdown with our heroes. But there is a turncoat among the X-Men, the once-villainous-turned-good-now-turned-bad-again Emma Frost who it seems has been helping Cassandra Nova regain power slowly to come back and defeat the X-Men once and for all. Throw in SWORD, the quasi-government agency from the future/another dimension (I forget) who are looking to save their world from destruction by [...]


  • Emma's true allegiance is shown: she is secretly on the side of the Hellfire Club who attack the mansion and take out the X-Men. Their goal is a highly secured box that contains an item that is vital for one member of the Hellfire Club, Cassandra Nova.The story jumps rapidly from one thing to another, so I won't even try to summarize it. (view spoiler)[Most of it is in their heads anyway. (hide spoiler)] It's too fast paced for what it wants to do and the multiple twists, instead of being fun, m [...]


  • I feel like I might be overzealous in my praise of this series, but I'm really, really loving it. None of the small annoyances from the second volume are here; this one is back to high bar established by the introductory volume. Whedon’s run on X-Men makes me feel like the reckless fanboy I used to be when I first discovered the X-books during the Claremont years.This story arc begins with the faculty and students of Xavier’s school recovering from the hard-fought battles and somewhat pyrrhi [...]


  • Collecting Astonishing X-Men #13 through #18. Emma Frost and a new Hellfire Club (Sebastian Shaw, Cassandra Nova, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Perfection) take advantage of a lull in the action to divide and conquer the X-Men. Emma manipulates Cyclops, Cassandra handles Beast and Wolverine, Colossus and Shaw tussle, and NTW gets in Shadowcat's head. Meanwhile, S.W.O.R.D. has calculated exactly which mutant will soon destroy Breakworld, which also becomes known to those on the planet.The takedo [...]


  • Tercera parte de la más que digna continuación de los increíbles New X-Men de Morrison. La mayor desventaja con la que corrió Morrison en su etapa -el eterno baile de dibujantes- acá se ve subsanada gracias a la lenta pero constante pluma de John Cassaday, que deslumbra en cada tomo. Una muy buena continuación de una muy buena etapa de un grupo de "superhéroes" que de vez en cuando tiene historias muy buenas. Además, los guiños para los fans de la etapa de Morrison, son varios, están m [...]



  • More of what I've come to expect from Mr. Whedon's little X-Men run. Top notch. Honestly feeling pretty upset about there only being one more volume in his run.


  • Baya heyecan yaptım bir sonraki cilt için. Özellikle Scott sahneleri 👌🏽 Her sahnesinde bu kafayı bulsa dedim. Aslında üç ciltten beri sır üstüne sır ilerliyor ama en azından bir soruya çözüme ulaştı. Galiba tüm olaylar ilerki ciltte patlayacak. ARTIK PATLASINDA NE OLURSA OLSUN. 3 ciltten beri herkes dram halinde herkes dokunsan ağlayacak *ki gene bir şey değişmeyeceğine benziyor*


  • This series is so fucking good I need to buy every single one of the comic books!!! I never want this to end, I'm honestly thriving, they are feeding me so well


  • Whedon steps up his writing in these issues compared to vol. 1 and 2. These bound issues are a fine example of how good of a read comics can be.


  • This volume was on a different playing field than the first two. Kitty has to jump in and be the main player. Emma is obviously evil but her soul and heart are starting to get weird and feely. The Hellfire Club offers up new and different obstacles. And the mind fuckery is so insane that it's both absolutely hilarious and a major major set back.So the best and worst part of this is Emma and Nova working their shit to convince the X-Men that they are the opposite of themselves (or in McCoy's case [...]


  • This trade collects issues 13-18 of Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-men.**Note: Torn directly continues events started in Volume 1 (Gifted) and continued in Volume 2 (Dangerous). It will be impossible to follow if you don't read those first and this review by necessity will contain some spoilers for previous volumes. **Vol 3 of Joss Whedon's X-men story builds off the revelation shared with readers at the end of Vol 2. Emma's secrets and odd behavior pays off as The Hellfire Club returns to p [...]


  • Took me far too long to get to Vol. 3, so I just read 1-3 in a row again.This is where things get ratcheted up a notch. There's enough mindfucks here to confuse you, but enough good stuff to keep you guessing and going along with everything. Emma Frost has turned to her evil ways, helping Cassandra Nova, and with the 2 powerful telepaths, the X-Men are in serious trouble, especially when the Hellfire Club accompanies Frost and Nova. Joss Whedon loves Kitty Pride, and here she really shines, whic [...]


  • Good stuff. Several neat moments. I love it when Cyclops appears to waste the whole Hell Fire Club with a pistol. They all turn out to be psychic projections, which works for me. Of course in the years since Scott has made exactly the same choice (to kill the enemies occasionally even pre-emptively) using the new "X-Force" as his weapon, so I guess "character development" for Cyclops in the last few years has been totally inconsistent with who he is/has been since 1963, but oh well. The ending i [...]


  • The copy of this I picked up has no indication of where it might come in a series. I was sure it was probably in the middle of something anyway, but I thought I'd give it a go, see if X-men is something I'm interested in following ('cause you know, it's not like I'm following enough already).If you're already invested in the characters and know what's going on the story, then I think this would be a gut punch of a volume. There's some amazing stuff going on with Kitty Pryde, and all of the X-men [...]


  • This third volume of Astonishing X-Men was a mixed bag for me. Like the previous volumes, Whedon channels the characters extremely well. The inner conflicts that all these characters have is without a doubt the highlight of this Joss Whedon run. He just creates a personality for these X-Men and villains so well. My biggest issue with this run is that the plot just doesn't really have much clarity. I feel that maybe I missed a lot in the previous X-Men run before the Whedon run, especially a lot [...]


  • Astonishing X-Men continues. There's trouble in the X-Mansion. Things aren't right with Emma Frost, and the all-new Hellfire Club finally make their move.I can think of exactly one good thing about this arc, and that's the sequence where Wolverine gets regressed to the mental state of an eight year-old. If that doesn't scream low standards, I don't know what does.Seriously. This arc was just dull. The dialogue remains fantastic as ever, but the plot has stilted. Somehow Whedon manages in this ar [...]


  • Great, creative storytelling here - putting the balance all out of whack, giving us a while new way to look at the team. But even without a good story, I would celebrate this whole book for just the hilarious twist they put on our favourite hairy Canadian. Satisfying story, still-great art, and leaves us wanting to see where the team is headed next. Yes, I'm really intrigued and dying to get into the next (and for Whedon, the last) book.


  • La explicación final de cómo adquirió Emma Frost su forma diamantina se encuentra en este volumen. Empieza el combate contra el "Club del Fuego Infernal" y los X-Men. Emma Frost de manera sorprendente traiciona a Cíclope y hace el papel quizás que mejor le cae cuando es villana. Esto hace que aparezca como un nuevo apoyo "Armor", Hisako una estudiante muy aplicada y valiente que se ve envuelta al final de la derrota de Casandra Nova en un viaje hacia Breakworld.


  • I love Joss Whedon's writing, and the fact that he brought about a story that faced a problem that the fans probably were having a hard time dealing with for a while, I know I did, can we really trust the White Queen? The art is great, and I love that Whedon wrote for the fan based which are not 9 year olds anymore, but are gown-ups, and he put them in grown up situations. It's really refreshing that after so long someone is taking the X-men seriously.


  • This is probably my favourite volume of Whedon's X-Men, or any other X-Men for that matter. It feels like watching some of the best episodes of Buffy (it actually conceptually resembles "Tabula Rasa"), only with X-Men as main characters. I love Logan as a little child. I love Scott "Making a statement". I love Kitty kicking Emma's ass. Gahd, I love this comic book. I am so happy it exists.


  • Oh dear. Roller coaster-ride to say the least. Went from heartbrokenly sad to mad to giggling my daily use of giggles away. Hilarious. Emma/White/Cassandra (I'm a liiiittle bit confused here tbh) did a terrible horrible thing to my Kitty. Katya is mine and don't you dare hurt her in any way that's even close to somewhat permanent.
