Whedon’s ASTONISHING X-MEN Motion Comic Coming to DVD

Joss Whedon & John Cassaday’s work on the “Astonishing X-Men” motion comic will be coming to DVD on September 28th, 2010.  It had a fantastic run earlier last  year and then it performed pretty decently with the iTunes released version that carried the story arc titled ‘Gifted.’

I caught some preview clips of the motion comic from Whedon and it was pretty good as far as I’m concerned.

If you missed the freebies or the iTunes airing, you will be able to pick up the DVD with the motion comic run in late September.

“Astonishing X-Men” Product Description:

Dream-team creators Joss Whedon (TV’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) and John Cassaday (“Planetary,” “Captain America”) present the explosive, all-new flagship X-Men series – marking a return to classic greatness and the beginning of a brand-new era for the X-Men! Cyclops and Emma Frost re-form the X-Men with the express purpose of astonishing the world. But when breaking news regarding the mutant gene unexpectedly hits the airwaves, will it derail their new plans before they even get started? As demand for the mutant cure reaches near-riot levels, the X-Men go head-to-head with the enigmatic Ord, with an unexpected ally – and some unexpected adversaries – tipping the scales!
