Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men finally comes to an explosive close with Unstoppable, as Cyclops, Wolverine, Emma Frost, Beast, Kitty Pryde, Colossus, the vengeful Ord, and the murderous Danger all find themselves on an intergalactic trip to the Breakworld: a land that Colossus is prophecised to destroy. Marred by shipping delays, these last issues of Whedon and John Cassaday's run on Astonishing X-Men features an ending that will come to no surprise to anyone who has been keeping up with the other X-books (someone doesn't make it back) but this matters little just based on the fact that Whedon's Astonishing X-Men, along with Grant.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Serenity creator Joss Whedon's much beloved (and much delayed) run on Astonishing X-Men comes to an end with these two storyarcs, chronicling his second year on the book. In "Torn", we witness Cyclops, Emma Frost, Wolverine, Shadowcat, Colossus, and Beast enjoy some downtime; which naturally doesn't last long as a newly formed Hellfire Club attempts to take them apart by the inside out. Or so you may think.

Strap yourselves in, folks! It's Joss Whedon and John Cassaday's final arc on Astonishing X-Men! After the shocking and brain-smashing events of recent issues, the X-Men are off to protect the Earth from its destruction at the hands of the Breakworld. And when it's all over, nothing will ever be the same! No, really, we mean it! Whedon and Cassaday prove they are more than Astonishing: They are unstoppable!

  • Ok! What can I say, it's the X-Men, & Whedon. Enough said, good read and as always fantastic illustrations.

  • This volume wraps up the Whedon/Cassaday run and is almost as good as the previous volumes, but there are two problems: there are a few dangling plot threads (which is forgiveable in a comic IF the later writers pick them up (which, since I don't have the next set, I don't know if they do)) and as you look on the cover, you might be thinking to yourself "Guest stars! Yay!" Well, no. The guest stars don't really add much at all to the story, apart for some humor from Spider-Man.

    Other than that, though, very well done.

  • Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men finally comes to an explosive close with Unstoppable, as Cyclops, Wolverine, Emma Frost, Beast, Kitty Pryde, Colossus, the vengeful Ord, and the murderous Danger all find themselves on an intergalactic trip to the Breakworld: a land that Colossus is prophecised to destroy. Stunning revelations are abound, and everything comes together as the TPB races to a stunner conclusion that unites all of the X-Men with nearly every Marvel hero on the planet in an effort to save the world. Marred by shipping delays, these last issues of Whedon and John Cassaday's run on Astonishing X-Men features an ending that will come to no surprise to anyone who has been keeping up with the other X-books (someone doesn't make it back) but this matters little just based on the fact that Whedon's Astonishing X-Men, along with Grant Morrison's prolific run with New X-Men, are the absolute best X-Men stories in a decade plus. The Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Serenity creator provides more snappy and smart dialogue, and Planetary artist John Cassaday provides more spectacular artwork. All in all, X-Men stories rarely get any better than what you'll find here, and here's hoping that maybe one day Whedon and Cassaday will make a return to this title that both of them managed to revitalize.

  • Astonishing X-men has been one of those series that is hard to stop reading. It's so intelligent and entertaining that I feel smarter after reading it. Whedon has an incredible talent for cinematic storytelling and I bet by now all of us wish this could be directly translated into a film. The characterization and interaction is so well structured and utilized, that we love every character. So when all the characters split up there is no difference in entertainment between each of their paths. It's all astonishing!

    The ending to Whedon's story is very profound and impressive. I do want to read the whole series over for clarification, but you should be able to graps the main components of the story. Vol. 3 and 2 got a little complex, but I think this one wraps it up very nice and neat. When I read, I can tell Whedon is having fun throwing in twists and foreshadowings, so that I may feel anxious for the next panel. There are times when a piece of dialogue makes no sense, and then at the turn of a page there is a huge revelation to that line. I was blown away by how original and powerful that method had been used. The creators of this comic series know how to be different from all the others, and yet be just as entertaining if not more than the rest.

  • I am going to miss Whedon and Cassaday's run with 'Astonishing X-Men.' During the 1980s and 90s X-men stories got so convoluted it was difficult to follow all the characters, much less explore the complex relationships between them. But Astonishing X-Men, from the very start, solved those problems by focusing on only a few team members: Cyclops, Emma Frost, Kitty Pryde, Colossus, and of course Wolverine. The interactions of these characters, particularly Frost and Pryde are at the heart of the new series, which also features Agent Brand of Sword and a new X-Man, Hisako, aka Armor.

    This final story arc from Whedon cannot be read independently of the first three. 'Gifted,' 'Dangerous,' and especially 'Torn' are required pre-reads before tackling this volume. Without revealing any spoilers, the plot involves the X-Men on the Breakworld, the world Colossus, it is prophesied, will destroy. One plot twist follows another every couple of pages, but even careful readers will be surprised at the ending. Both the Breakworld and Earth are saved, but by who and how this review will not say. Suffice to add, Blindfold's vision, at the end of 'Torn' is fulfilled and one of the X-Men will not return. Saddened as I am by the loss, I hope Marvel will not allow another unbelievable "back from the beyond" scenario. Even the greatest (and most sympathetic) of heroes need to rest in peace.

    'Astonishing X-Men,' perhaps more than any other series, has captured the essence of the original comic: heroes who, for all their power, are all too human. Marvel, of couse, has made considerable money with 'Astonishing X-Men' from readers like myself who have returned to comics long after I thought I was "over" that phase. The series will, of course, continue under the title 'Astonishing X-Men: Second Stage' with writer Warren Ellis working with artist Simone Bianchi. But these keepers of the flame will have a difficult task on their hands. 'Unstoppable' was as close to perfection as one can get in the comic format. It is hard to see how it can be matched.
