Wow. Back on the pull list. This was an astonishing issue, indeed!...

Astonishing X-Men #33
http://marvel.com/news/comicstories.10604.preview~colon~_astonishing_x-men_%2333


Its one of those issues where there is so many good things that its a lot simpler to just say READ IT, ENJOY IT. The brilliant art, storyline, characterizations, visuals, great one-liners, monster battle, master (presumably introduced)villain, optic blast - just to name everything were great! Including good scenes balance with EVERY member in a TEAM BOOK for a change - even Armor!

And THIS would have been a much more believable reason, shown, that Hank would leave the X-men than that odd Dark Beast panel presented this week in Uncanny 519 which must occur later.

Only nitpick OTTOMH, besides the cover image choice, is why the heck would Wolverine think all the Brood were dead?

Also to save me a trip to Wiki, who is Damien Hirst and how clever was that (presumably realworld)tidbit? Will have to check the Marvel bio on PARADIGM too - first time reading of him also.

Read it. Enjoy it. Here's another 1000 words worth of compliments to add to 'astonishing'...

Damien Hirst is an artist (and British, too, I think. My memory isn't what it was), who gained notoriety for creating a piece of art that was solely composed of half a cow floating in formaldehyde.

You're right there he is British. Big in the Mid 90's, one of the YBA (young british artists)Charles Saatchi is/was one of his biggest patrons.

Technically (though i could have this backwards it's been a while since Saatchi's warehouse burned down) it was half a sheep; and then he produced both halves of a cow and calf in separate tanks (4 tanks total. He also did crossections (think that was a cow again)and a whole, intact shark. He was up for the Turner prize a couple of times, i think, but i don't know if he won it. Pretty sure the Tate own the cow/calf but don't think it's on permenant display in the Tate Modern as Emma implies.
