Astonishing X-Men: Ghost Boxes Is A Hit!

Postby LOLtron » Fri Oct 31, 2008 11:37 am

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 beinghandcuffed to a jumper...who leaps onto the downiest pillow ever," saidExecutive Editor Axel Alonso.

 

Critics and fans agree-AstonishingX-Men: Ghost Boxes is a hit! "Any fan of the start ofEllis's run on Astonishing,or even of his other works like Planetaryand even his straight sci-fi work should feel right at home," said LucasSiegel of Newsarama.Com. "A great read with great art, this is worth theread for all fans of the X-Men, hardcore and casual alike. I can't waitto read the second issue."

 

Timothy Callahan of ComicBookResources.com raved, "You'll find a lot of interesting ideas andfantastic visuals packed into this comic"

 

Alex Rodriguez from ComicsBulletin.comexclaimed, "The art is beautiful, reminiscent of futuristic period filmssuch as Steamboy. What the art team does with the X-Jet is incredible. The useof off colors with rich browns and golds give the entire section a very rusticand industrial feel that suits the X-Men perfectly."

 

As the mystery of Subject X unfolds, the X-Men get closer and closer tofiguring out just how the Ghost Boxes work. Just who was Agent X-13 working forand what is the goal they're working towards? With other Marvel Universesseemingly in ruin, is there any hope for our team of mutants? In Astonishing X-Men: Ghost Boxes #2 (of 2) sees Ellisteaming with two more superstar artists-Olivier Coipel (Thor) and Kaare Andrews-as thelimited series concludes with a bang! And don't miss out on moreDirector's Cut-style extras!
