The Astonishing X-Men Vol. 1, by Joss Whedon and John Cassaday

Joss Whedon moves from the Slayer-verse and the world of Firefly to the mutant storyline of X-Men as he tackles the story and gives it a bit of a new face. Starting out, he centers on Cyclops, Emma Frost, Beast, Kitty Pryde and Wolverine, who are heading up the school in Professor Xavier's absence. Going beyond the fact that Cyclops and Wolverine are in conflict (as usual), there's also a touchy situation that has arisen wherein a "cure" for mutants has been discovered. The art in the book is spectacular, and there are certain little touches throughout that make it quite clear that this is a Joss Whedon production. While I'm not necessarily a big comic reader unless the book is unique or different, I found myself thoroughly enjoying the world Whedon created and looking forward to the next books in the series.
