    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.

    ...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.
