Astonishing X-men #24 is the last of the regular sized issues for Whedon and Cassidy and it ends well. There were a few times I felt as though Cyclops was channeling Whedon’s Mal characther from Firefly but that was in no means a bad thing. A- and I’m ready for the Giant sized Finale.

Went to see American Gangster last night. A very good crime flick and one of the only movies I’ve seen this year that feels like an oscar movie. Denzel Washington should get a nod and the direction of Ridley Scott is focused soley on the story he is telling. Very very good.
Picked up Hellboy Darkness Calls #6 today and it ends the story for baba yaga yet again. It was a very good Hellboy story overall and I really really love the coloring in this book.
Also got Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-men # 23 and it was o.k. but not as emotionally charged as the past few issues. Give it a B.
Astonishing X-Men #22. Wow. that last three pages just hit so hard. If Joss Whedon doesn’t get back to scripting film soon then it’s a real shame. This book is the most cinematic the X-men have ever been and they all just feel so right. Seriously, when Whedon leaves comics, which all indicators point to soon, the film world better be ready. John Cassady’s art is superb as well. APLUS best single issue I’ve read in quite some time.
