    Wait, are you sure this isn’t X-Men by Gaslight? Or, perhaps League of Extraordinary X-Men?

    Seriously … when did the Astonishing X-Men suddenly arrive in the early 1900s?

    I really don’t like tie-ins; specials; one-shots; just fit into the regular chronology of the series! When I look back on my comic book collection in 20 years, am I going to be able to remember to be reading this two-issue limited series simultaneously as I read issues 26-28, or whatever… I probably won’t and there will either be parts of the story missing when I read my Astonishing X-Men collection or the story will read fine rendering this mini useless and a waste of money in the first place.
