Comic Book Resources is reporting that Warren Ellis and Simone Bianchi will be the new creative team on Astonishing X-Men, for at least 24 issues starting with issue No. 25.
Interviews with both creator from Newsarama can be found HERE.
The cast of the book is yet to be announced, likely tying in closley with the outcome of X-Men: Messiah Complex, the fall crossover.
I've never loved Ellis' stuff too much, but if he gets the books out on time, it will be a plus. I mean, damn, there is a 3 month gap between Astonishing No. 21 and 22!
