Astonishing X-Men Deluxe Hardcover Collection


I only own the two first volume written by Joss Whedon and drawn by John Cassaday.

These slightly oversized books (7.5 x 11.5 inches, 19 x 28 cm) comes with faux leather hardcovers and dust jackets. The stories are printed on glossy paper just a little thicker than the original comics.










First volume published in 2006 by Marvel (ISNB 0-7851-2301-6, cover price 29.99$) containing Astonishing X-Men #1-12 (322 pages) and displaying all the original regular covers in virgin form.




There is 22 pages of extra material printed on a blue frame:
- a 2 pages introduction written by Brian K. Vaughan,
- 12 pages of Wizard covers, variant covers (sometimes with layouts) and the saga cover,
- 4 pages of John Cassaday's character designs,
- 2 pages of Joss Whedon planning emails transcription,
- 4 pages interview of John Cassaday by John Rhett Thomas (Marvel Spotlight).







Second volume published in 2008 by Marvel (ISNB 978-0-7851-3561-6, cover price 34.99$) containing Astonishing X-Men #13-24 and Giant-Size Astonishing X-Men #1 (almost 350 pages) and displaying all the original regular covers in virgin form.





There is 7 pages of extra material printed on a blue frame: 6 variant covers and the saga cover already reprinted in the previous volume).
