Joss Whedon John Cassaday's Astonishing X-men motion comic

Netlfix streaming and youtube have Joss Whedon and John Cassaday's Astonishing X-men motion comic. It is a good sci-fi story that was originally published in 24 issues. The motion comics work well with the artwork. The story line relies a little too much on many years of X-men history, so if you're only familiar with the movies, you might be a little lost. The voice acting is good. The only thing that is annoying is that Netflix and youtube break up the story into 6 episodes and so you have to watch the 1 minute long opening credits each time or fast forward. Netflix also has added a bunch of Marvel animated series and motion comics. The Iron Man Extremis, and S.W.O.R.D. are worth checking out.
