Description

The Uncanny X-Men: Beyond The Farthest Star. Paul Smith, Chris Claremont, Dave Cockrum. The Uncanny X-Men: Love and Madness. The Uncanny X-Men: Legacy of the Lost.

The Uncanny X-Men: Beyond The Farthest Star. The Uncanny X-Men: The Gift.

Writer Chris Claremont was in peak form and would write this series for another 100 issues. The pencilling is handed from Dave Cockrum to Paul Smith in this volume. At first one feels shortchanged but Smith comes into his own quickly. The stories collected here are mostly the second part of what has become known as the "Brood Saga". Claremont serves up a couple of well thought out alien cultures for the X-Men to cope with/relate to/fight. The psychological issues are also deftly handled. This is Claremont at his best. The book is rounded out with some solo tales that appeared in various reprint books. Outstanding here is Kitty giving Illyana a tour of the mansion and grounds.

The Uncanny X-Men book. The story itself was still good but I was a bit confused. Collects The Uncanny X-Men 169-175. Also Rogue joins the team in this book which was cool - however with her I'm so used to the 90s cartoon version that I struggled to like this version of her. She's meant to be quite young here and yet I think she was drawn much older so really my mixed feelings come down to the art style rather than the choice of stories.

A look back at Claremont's landmark run on 'Uncanny X-Men' that began in the 1970s. But working with such amazing artists as Dave Cockrum, John Byrne, Paul Smith, and John Romita J. Claremont elevated the X-Men to a lofty, loving spot in fans’ hearts. His near-obsession with detail, characterization, and a scripting approach more at home with prose novels still sets him apart today, and tells a rags-to-riches tale of an uncanny legacy in comics. UNCANNY X-MEN (1963) Ask any X-fan to tell you one of Chris Claremont’s greatest impacts on the mutant team and the probability’s high that they’ll cite his creation of and focus on female characters.

This is a great omnibus. There are some great story arcs here. My favorite was the brood saga. They look like the creature in aliens and the story line is similar in nature. Can the Xmen survive an attack from within. The Claremont run on the Xmen is very well known and deserves its reputation. There are included a graphic novel God loves and man kills and some hard to find mini series like Magik featuring Colusses sister.

Too much to describe and you would need to spend a boatload of time and money to find all these issues individually.

There seems to be some overlap right now with the days of future past story arc and the Xmen omnibus part 3. So I will review both and keep till corrected.
Days of future past is a two issue story arc that deals w the issues of racism and genocide amongst other things. There is more of this in the comics than the movie. There are themes that are similar to events in WW2 if you know what I mean. I give 5 stars on each. I encourage you to check out both. They are very good reads.

Some of the best Xmen stories of all time. Chris Claremont and John Byrne churned out some amazing in-depth and entertaining comics. They took depth and personality to comic book characters in ways that has not happen until then. They gave each and every Xmen, and villain their own unique personality and made them more real.

Part of the reason I bought a Kindle was to slowly but surly reduce the physical space my comic collection takes up (kids will do that to you...that and living in Southern California where I'll never own a home due to housing costs haha). I've always know the basics about the Days of Future Past storyline but never actually owned the TPB.

Happy to say this was a great buy on my Kindle. The panels looked good and were easy to read. There were only a few that must have been 2 page spreads from the originals that weren't able to resize but overall everything was great.

The story line itself was very 80's and I loved how it's very "super hero" in the sense that the characters explain their powers before they use them. Just an interesting observation looking back on how comics have changed. Also it's funny how random some of the stories are leading up to the main event (Nightcrawler in Hell for example).

Great book, great price, great piece of comic history!

The aftermath of the Dark Phoenix with Cyclops leaving and Kitty Pryde moving into the school. Wolverine and Nightcrawler visit Alpha Flight. And no time to rest with the infamous Days Of Future Past. Also includes a Christmas story. Does not include X Men Annual 4 which was a team up with Dr. Strange that happened between issues 138 and 139.

Sort of the end of the beginning. The last issues with Cockrum as penclier, the first with Byrne. I can remember as a 12 year old seeing this strange title with even stranger characters. It is a decent story arc Clermont's story telling is evolving with his characters. The creative monster that would become Claremont and Bryne is born at the end this compilation.

Although this book is full of action and thrills, the major trait for Chris Claremont's run is the warmth that he brought to the characters and their relationship with one another. I recommend that anyone interested in The X-Men should pick up as much of his work as they possibly can.

Much of the dark doings in the X-Men books these past thirty years go back to that infamous two-issue arc way back in 1980. "Days of Future Past" was only a few issues removed from the tragic "Dark Phoenix" saga, so you can make a pretty solid case for this stretch of stories as writer Chris Claremont cresting to his absolute peak. His exceptional artist and co-plotter John Byrne, well, his heyday would span plenty of years beyond Claremont's. For those trying to unearth back issues of this classic adventure, you can find it in the trade paperback X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, which collects issues #138-143 as well as X-MEN ANNUAL #4. For X-Men fans, this is a must get.

The trade opens with Jean Grey's friends and family attending her burial and a grief-stricken Cyclops reminiscing about Jean. Along the way, he manages to summarize the entire X-Men run up to that point. Cyclops' abrupt leave of absence would herald Ororo's assuming the leadership role.

The annual (illustrated by John Romita, Jr. and Bob McLeod) tells of how the X-Men and Dr. Strange storm Hell as they attempt to rescue Nightcrawler. This issue also brings to light a very dark secret from Nightcrawler's past (and this on his birthday, too).

Next is a two-issue story featuring Wolverine and Nightcrawler's eventful visit to Canada and their team-up with Alpha Flight as they take on the Wendigo.

This takes us to issues #141-142 which comprise the pivotal, very influential "Days of Future Past," an arc that is as significant as Jim Shooter's "The Adult Legion" story in LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES (issues #354-355, 1967). In the horrifying dystopian future of 2013, where Sentinels run rampant and super-heroes are a thing of the past, anti-mutant hysteria has brought mutants to the brink of extinction. In a last ditch effort to alter the past and thus turn away this future, the consciousness of a middle-aged Katherine Pryde journeys some thirty years back and inhabits the body of her 13-year-old self. Her mission hinges on preventing the assassination of a senator at the hands of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. But first Katherine, in her teenaged form, must convince the X-Men that she isn't delusional, and keep in mind that at this stage Kitty was the team's newest and younger member, and an unproven one, at that. The X-Men save the senator, but was Kitty's mission truly successful? Can the future truly be altered? X-Men writers are still figuring this out.

Inarguably, "Days of Future Past" created road maps and sign posts for future story arcs. It's inspired much of the current X-Men mythology. This story blew my mind when I read it decades ago. The groundbreaking stuff that Claremont got up to in those pages - such as killing off the X-Men in the future - are nowadays pretty commonplace, but back then, it resonated like a mother. It, in fact, was so groundbreaking that, in a lot of ways, it's painted the X-Men franchise into a corner. You'll find that a lot of X-Men stories since then can't seem to get away from this bleak dystopian future. "Days of Future Past" is THE TERMINATOR before THE TERMINATOR came around.

This run of issues also bears added historical weight, and it's not because Angel decided to rejoin the team or even that we note a costume change in Wolverine or hear him being called "Logan" for the very first time. No, what happens is that Kitty Pryde officially becomes the newest X-Man, and her presence immediately re-injects that breath of fresh air. It's appropriate that the last issue in this trade is Kitty-centric, as well. "Demon" is the holiday issue. It finds Kitty alone in the Xavier Mansion on Christmas Eve, a night in which the newest X-Man must outwit and survive the demonic N'garai. It's a hell of a rite of passage and demonstrates the qualities that make Kitty such a strong, endearing character. It's no wonder that she partly inspired Joss Whedon's creation of one Buffy Anne Summers.
Forget everything you ever knew about this storyline from the recent film. The film is good, but the book, as they say, the book is so much better. Chris Claremont and John Byrne are at their creative peak, and this storyline is the swansong to their epic run on X-men. It's as grim and gritty as story as any, and its a time travel story done in realistic manner. Byrne is one the best artists ever, Claremont one of the best writers, and this was a wonderful time to read and collect Marvel Comics.
