One of the best comic series of the past decade or more is, undoubtedly, Astonishing X-Men, by Joss Whedon and penciled by John Cassaday. Together they created one of the most comprehensive, cohesive and controlled pieces of comic literature weâ€™ve seen in a long time. Whedonâ€™s story was breathtaking, and Cassidayâ€™s art was better. So letâ€™s see how long it takes before it all comes crashing down. Why? Because Warren Ellis and Simone Bianchi are now on the book and they arenâ€™t no Whedon and Cassaday.
