Too big for a normal issue, the conclusion to Joss Whedon and John Cassaday’s groundbreaking X-Men epic arrives in Giant Size Astonishing X-Men #1! This double-sized issue brings Spider-Man, The Avengers and Fantastic Four into the battle with Breakworld—but will they aid the X-Men in their time of need? And even if they do help, how can the X-Men’s newest enemies be defeated in time to save the Earth? Cyclops and his team must put it all on the line—and one of the X-Men won’t be walking away from this fight. With a gorgeous wraparound cover by John Cassaday, featuring the Marvel Universe’s greatest heroes, and loaded with extras, Giant-Size Astonishing X-Men #1 is the X-Men comic that no X-Fan can afford to miss!

Wrapping up all the plot threads introduced in the series that changed the comic industry, one of the best selling creative teams of the decade bids farewell the to X-Men in Giant-Size Astonishing X-Men #1! But just who will make it back from this final battle…and will they ever be the same again? Plus, don’t miss the Giant Size Astonishing X-Men Poster, in stores now!
