This classic volume of Chris Claremont s Uncanny X Men run was a blast to read It had so much packed into 9 issues and 2 Annuals.We have the first appearance of Rogue Guest appearance by the Fantastic Four, Tigra of the Avengers , and Jarvis the Butler.There is a Freaky Friday kind of body swap, space adventure with alien invasion, fairy tales, swashbucklers, Dracula, and even a Cyclops, I am your father moment that could have come straight from the Star Wars films This set of issues also starte [...]
Ugh Talk about filler Coming off one of the greatest comic book arcs of all time The Dark Phoenix Saga must have been hard for Claremont and Cockrum and it shows.This entire volume is total filler, I don t particularly care for the X Men in space Sure the Dark Phoenix Saga was magnificent but I don t need to see the X Men return to space every 5 issues There s also one intermission issue and it basically tells the reader it is a filler issue Really awful volume I wish I had skipped it entirely K [...]

I really loved this whole masterworks series of the Uncanny X Men They were incredibly well put together.
