Weekly Comic Book Reviews For 7/21/08

Writer: Marc Guggenheim
Artist: Phil Jimenez
Publisher: Marvel

Astonishing X-Men #17
Writer: Joss Whedon
Artist: John Cassady
Publisher: Marvel

Whedon’s story continues its meandering pace this issue, though it does look like we might be getting close to a conclusion of some sort. The art is of course as good as ever, but this is a storyline that has just gone on too long.
