Publisher's Summary

Cyclops and Emma Frost re-form the team with the express purpose of "astonishing" the world. But when breaking news regarding the mutant gene unexpectedly hits the airwaves, will it derail their new plans before they even get started? 

As demand for the "mutant cure" reaches near-riot levels, the X-Men go head-to-head with the enigmatic Ord, with an unexpected ally - and some unexpected adversaries - tipping the scales!

This GraphicAudio® Production is adapted from the graphic novel by Joss Whedon and John Cassaday.

Great graphic audio adaptation

This is a great graphic audio adaptation of a wonderful comicbook. I read the comic years ago and when I saw it had been adapted in this format I jumped right on it. I was not disappointed. Joss Whedon's signature style comes through loud and clear in this version.

In case you're unfamiliar with graphic audio: this is not an unabridged book of any kind, it's a radio drama. Complete with a full cast of voice actors, sound effects, and music.

As someone that read the original

I really enjoyed it. It instantly took me back to the cartoons. The cast and performances paint the perfect picture. Some of the dialogue is questionable but nothing that can't be overlooked.

I didn't know who would buy this over the comic but the cast is worth it alone and the story has alot less filler.

Pretty Good, worth a credit

Good story, performance was pretty good as well. Whoever voiced kitty pryde went a little too over the top at times, especially one time that seemed to last forever and almost became humorous. Story is in continuity, which I like.

Hope they adapt the rest of the Astonishing X-men

This adaptation of Astonishing X-Men adds a lot of scenes that take place between the panels of the comics. Highly recommend if you were a fan of the X-Men.
