Astonishing X-Men motion comic to get big (like, three stories big) premiere



This morning’s New York Post reveals some of the details for the Oct. 28 premiere of Marvel’s Astonishing X-Men motion comic in New York City’s Union Square Park.

The company will transform the former Virgin Megastore into a three-story outdoor screen to show the adaptation of the bestselling comic by Joss Whedon and John Cassaday.

Astonishing X-Men is Marvel’s second motion comic. Spider-Woman, by Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev, debuted in August.

The premiere will serve as the centerpiece for the first “Marvelfest” in Union Square Park, which will feature appearances by creators, a costume contest and giveaways. The event begins at 6 p.m.



I’ll just stick to my own glorious omnibus.

I just picked up the omnibus and it is awesome- it’s scary how right Joss Whedon was for X-Men. I understand a lot of the complaints I’ve heard about the stories he told, but I think the dialogue is pitch perfect for every character.
