Here's the full solicit:

Written by JOSS WHEDON
This deluxe hardcover collects ASTONISHING X-MEN VOL. 3: TORN and ASTONISHING X-MEN VOL. 4: UNSTOPPABLE by the chart-topping super-team of Joss Whedon and John Cassaday, plus extras. In TORN, things go from peculiar to just plain bizarre! Emma Frost's erratic behavior has the X-Men spinning in a non-stop downward spiral. Will an unlikely union be the final straw? After secretly lying in wait for months, the new Hellfire Club makes its move! Plus: The X-Man destined to destroy the Breakworld stands revealed! Who is it, and what will be their fate? And in UNSTOPPABLE, the X-Men are off to protect the Earth from its destruction at the hands of the Breakworld. And when it's all over, nothing will ever be the same! No, really, we mean it!

Final Order Cut-Off 10/30
Astonishing X-Men Vol. 2 HC (On-Sale 12/3/08)

The two available covers are here and here (the second being a similar design to the Runaways hardcover recently released).

Oh, Joss Whedon wrote this? I couldn't tell by the cover. ;)
The name of the writer should never be bigger than the name of the title.

Buying it anyway.
For some reason, no matter how many times I've asked them to get it, my comic book store still hasn't gotten me a copy of Vol. 4... it is out, yes?
Vol. 4 was released (link is to buy on Amazon) on July 16th.
Does anyone know anything about an Angel tpb in the works? I assume they have to be bringing one to market.

I've misplaced a couple issues and dont want to read it without issues 3 and 4.
Hmmmph. I thought as much. I'll ask them what's going on next time I'm there, then I'm going elsewhere for it. Very strange...
As cool as this collection is, I'm holding out for the inevitable full-run omnibus that Marvel will release. Why get the story in two editions if I can (hopefully) get it in one?
I've been waiting forever for this volume, so I'm glad the release date is finally in sight. Marvel hardcovers are the best way to read these, and it'll go nicely next to my Runaways HCs and the first Astonishing HC.

Because these Omnibus HCs are more expensive and their thickness makes them difficult to read. I have the Captain America Omnibus by Brubaker and my arm hurts after 15min of reading^^ And there is no guarantee that there will be one at all.
