(It is unclear, however, whether this is accurate for Astonishing X-Men as the publication listed at the top of the statement is "Amazing Spider-Man," and all publication-specific information [e.g., editor, circulation] exactly matches the Statement of Ownership published in Amazing Spider-Man #513 [December 2004]).
