Two more reviews of Astonishing X-Men. By 411 Comics(link above) and Chud.com

Good grief.....it's an existing property of 40 years old. And it was a first frikkin' issue, mostly dipped in Grant Morrisson's run. Give it a chance!

BTW I thought it was a very fine issue myself but if I didn't I still wouldn't understand this. It was a first issue! Let's finish out the first 6-issue arc and THEN judge okay? And there's really only so much you can do with this stuff, unless you completely turn it on it's head, which is not what Marvel or the fans want anyway. Joss is already taking the story back to the characters and I can't wait to read more.
Not really understanding why these are labelled as negative reviews. Is irony all the rage today?

Um.....EdDantes, did you read the links or my comments under the links, or were you being ironic too?
Ah..........that's funny. I clicked on this link again, and yeah this review is positive. And not the one I read. So here I am all confused. But then I was doing 5 things at once at the time with 12 windows open and the article I read and responded to was actually one I had found myself in an earlier search.

Ookaaaay.

But yeah, honestly, why is this called 'negative reviews'? Bit of a wrong label. Kinda missing the irony....
I was making light of the previous post that had the guy just bashing whedon. And also under the links i said, "Oh, and when I said negative, I meant perfect scores."

So you did. Have to confess I hardly ever read the extra stuff under there, hehe.
Please keep in mind your headline will be read out of context in dozens of places. People read our rss feed. I've changed the wording.
