Astonishing X-Men #22 Reviewed. The latest Astonishing X-Men has been reviewed by Tyler. Minor spoilers included.

You can find (and read) the review about the latest Astonishing, written by Joss and illustrated by John Cassaday, at the Nexus - or at Leave Your Spandex at the Door.

The review comments on what is, reportedly, the issue we've all been waiting for, and contains a few minor hints about the ending of the storyline.

Go check out what has been said about what has been written, by my own favourite Joss commentator!

The last two pages were among the most incredible I have seen in a long while. Bravo Joss for making Scott a character I look forward to every month (or every two months as the case may be). And of course Cassaday is the best penciller in the business now or ever. (I am awaiting Planetary #27 on pins and needles.)
Notional Spoilers (and the "Real" Kind) Follow:
A great issue and yes those last two pages were amazing. It really doesn't get much better than this. Does anyone know when the next issue comes out?
#23 was originally scheduled to come out a week before #22 actually came out.

#24 has not yet been solicited, which means December at the very earliest.
Amazon has the Unstoppable TPB, which is to include issues 19-24 plus Giant-Size Astonishing X-Men #1, slated for Jan. 30, 2008, release, though publication dates are not set in stone (unlike Breakworld prophecies).
I do agree that something seems off, Pointy.
