Giant-Size Astonishing X-Men [conclusion of Joss Whedon's arc/s]

"Giant-Size Astonishing X-Men" just sounded kind of surreal, so I didn't actually get to purchasing it until today.

I don't actually have much to say about it, actually.

I really like the line, "There's so much conflict, so much pain...  You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize this is it.  The dust is your life going on."

I thought Brand was joking when she told Hank she was attracted to him -- that she just said that to get him to leave her alone.

I love Hisako and Logan, though.  Hisako punches him and says, "I'm sorry, you were about to become poetic, and I thought we'd both prefer you didn't.  You want to grieve.  And I need to train."

"Disappointed, Ms. Frost?"
"Astonished, Ms. Pryde."

I've now read likeadeuce's posts on the issue.  Anyone else I should be reading?
