I just finished reading Astonishing #2, and must admit (after some hesitation upon first hearing about the concept) that Buffy-Boy Whedon can write a very nice X-Book. Thought provoking, interesting, a new villain and a new long-term subplot all in 32 pages - very good book. Cassaday's art also extremely nice. I'm excited about this book right now, and for good reason. Should be interesting to follow Dr. McCoy through the next 10 issues.
