    Short summary describing this issue.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Not all monsters are easy to spot -- some of them live among us, undetected or long forgotten. Some of them live inside us, in the dark corners of our hearts, feeding on our secret fears of loss. But in the Marvel Universe, most of them live on Monster Island. Or, at least, they did. A mysterious exodus is underway; monsters spilling onto nearby shores – with catastrophic results – and it falls upon a small group of X-Men to both save the population from destruction and to solve an imposing riddle: What are monsters afraid of? New series writer Daniel Way (Deadpool) is joined by superstar artist Jason Pearson to bring you a widescreen, mega blockbuster story filled with classic Kirby monsters, heart-stopping revelations and over-the-top action!

I think Way did a good job with t...

I like the attention being focused on Armor in this book. As a fairly new character I think it's important that she get stories about her, so that readers get to know her and hopefully like her. I feel like she is becoming more and mo...

    Not Feelin' It 0

    The only story arc in Astonishing I haven't read yet is Exogenic.  I am really not liking this one.  I know this is the first issue, but I've also read the third one due to when I got into Astonishing.  I really, really hate this art style.  It just looks weird and almost like a super deformed (in the manga sense) version of the X-Men and I don't think it fits with the previous art style or tone of the book.    I'd have liked a little more info on what happened to Armor's family, the reason they...
