    Default Astonishing X-Men To X-Club For 99 Cents From ComiXology Tomorrow



    Coming down the pipe... If you are enjoying Si Spurrier's run on X-Men Legacy, then his five issue miniseries X-Club will be 99 cents an issue tomorrow on ComiXology. Along with the post-Joss Whedon Astonishing X-Men #25 to #51, better known as the Warren Ellis-to-gay-marriage years, as well as the Xenogenesis and Ghost Boxes spin offs...

    X-club was hilarious, people. Read it!

    Oooh oooh. Can I pay more for less content, just like the people who bought Ghost Boxes did?

    I was so disappointed by Ellis's run on the book. I think he's brilliant, and I think Bianchi is insanely talented, but they didn't see to be particularly interested in doing an X-Men book. I feel like you could have swapped in any other characters into that first arc especially and it wouldn't have mattered. I could feel his boredom as a writer coming through each issue. That was a paycheck, pure and simple.

    Lol. I think 99 cents is just about the fair amount an issue of Ghost Boxes should cost. Most blatant rip-off Marvel ever pulled, before they raised their Hardcover and Trade prices.
    PLEASE CONSIDER putting SilverSmurfer on ignore due to his factually incorrect and hysteric claim that "Uber" is a "historically revisionist nazi fantasy," and that we should boycott Avatar for it.
    Thank you for your Considerations.

    ...Still overpriced at 99c if you ask me.

    Naturally, since Ellis is on your hack-list.

    Didn't feel that way with the second arc, where his contempt for the X-Men franchise couldn't have been clearer.
