Astonishing Whedon

Joss Whedon confirms continuing run on X Men comic.

Speaking at a WonderCon panel on February 20, Joss Whedon confirmed that he and artist John Cassaday will be writing twelve more issues of Astonishing X-Men for Marvel, plus a "Giant-Size" annual.

Whedon's twelve-issue run on the comic has been greeted with acclaim by fans, and unusually for the Buffy scribe, has appeared on time.

"We're going to take a brief respite and then come back with another 12", said Whedon, who has also been working on a Firefly comic.

Called Serenity, to tie in with the upcoming film, the three-issue prequel will be co-written with Brett Matthews, and drawn by Will Conrad. The story centres on Serenity's captain, Malcolm Reynolds. Issue one will come out from Dark Horse Comics in July.
