Lee Bermejo Covers Astonishing X-Men #25

How is this title going to be now?  Yes we get the brilliance of  Warren Ellis' writing skills.  Lee Bermejo is an extremely talented artist but...it's almost a bit much.  It's almost too detailed.  I mean look at Wolverine's veins about to pop out of his biceps and forhead.  The detail in Beast's fur is amazing.  It's just such a drastic change over Cassaday's style.  Change is good, right?  It's just going to take some getting used to.  Plus I'm still pissed about what happened to Kitty.  Maybe that's souring me towards the next issue.  We'll see.

Marvel is proud to unveil superstar artist Lee Bermejo’s cover, premiering at Comic-Con International in San Diego on July 23rd, to the hotly-anticipated Astonishing X-Men #25, as the red-hot team of legendary scribe Warren Ellis (Thunderbolts) and acclaimed artist Simone Bianchi (Wolverine) begin the second stage of the top-selling X-series! With a new home and a new mission, the Astonishing X-Men welcome a familiar face to the team—Storm—as they enter uncharted territory in a story that’ll shake them to their cores as part of X-Men: Manifest Destiny!
