Mods, please delete this if it's not allowed, but I do feel this is relevant to the interests of the comm.
When I started reading comics, I avoided superhero comics because I was intimidated by their complex histories, but I promised myself that one day, I would read X-Men, because I love the movies.
Then I started reading Marvel superhero comics and I discovered that X-Men comics alone were an even greater undertaking, one I didn’t have the energy for. But X-Men: First Class the movie has revived that urge again, and I decided to go for it.
I have decided to start not at the very beginning, but at what we would now call the reboot, when Chris Claremont, Len Wein, and Dave Cockrum took over with Giant-Sized X-Men #1/X-Men #94 (though I may go back and read some of the earlier issues later.) And in the proud tradition of Tom vs. The DCU and Mark Reads, I’ll be blogging
about these books issue by issue, and am also planning on reading the major spin-off series (New Mutants, Excalibur, X-Factor, Generation X, Adjectiveless, and Astonishing)I've already done 4 issues,
and invite you all to follow the rest. I'm reading all of X-Men so you don't have to!
For legality, let me show you a panel I looooooved from Uncanny X-Men #96, the latest issue I did.
