First I've heard of that.

I'm wondering if Ellis's Astonishing arc has anything to do with the New X-men arc with Nimrod.

It could be one of those forgotten Claremontism's like Gambits' telepathic 'charm' ability.

Maybe that's because AXM is one of the most boring comics I've ever read? I got the first two issues and that ghost boxes thing and said 'fuck it.'

probably a good call. i got the first two issues, then got ghost boxes #1 for free, but didn't bother with #2.

i'm glad i got axm#3, though. things start to pick up, but it's been one lackluster beginning to a new arc.

I was ready to drop it until issue #3 came out. It was just good enough to keep me interested. Everything up until then has sucked.

Jza, I thought it was the best Ellis issue of AXM, whatever that means.


I thought that as well. I was about to drop it.

I'm thinking you may be right. Because, remember back all those years ago when he invented the Neutralizer that rendered mutants powerless...? I vaguely remember them not being worried about him building another one after they destroyed the first because he simply couldn't. Or maybe I'm thinking about X-MEN: THE ANIMATED SERIES, something I heard there.

I was interested in Ghost Boxes but I'll be damned if I'm gonna pay $4 for 16 pages of story.
