    This is probably the weirdest, stupidest, comic I’ve ever read. It’s just such a mess with a mash up of characters that don’t belong together that then transform into other random creatures. Best taken as a curiosity, this comic will only really appeal to hard-core comic book fans. Reading classic old school comics from the 50s and 60s is amusing at the best of times; they ooze with melodrama and a certain lack of imagination verging on simplicity when gazing at them through a lens of modernity.

The writing did improve with age, as did the artwork, but sometimes one comes along that is so laughable and just so ridiculous that is goes beyond being entertaining and is just, well, plain ridiculous. It started with “Sauron” and ended somehow with Bigfoot after a few spreads with a werewolf. I have nothing else to say: it's garbage.

    В 1970 году комиксы про Людей Икс были отменены по причине слабых продаж. Сценаристы франшизы узнали об этом за много месяцев, поэтому все же успели под занавес добавить в историю немного кислоты и контраста, а также вернуть с того света профессора Ксавье. В ашеттовский сборник «Люди Икс: В тени Саурона» вошли последние семь выпусков оригинальной линейки перед её отменой - с 59 по 66. Плюс легендарный сингл Amazing Adventures про Зверя, где Маккой наконец становится пушистым. И слава богу, что л В 1970 году комиксы про Людей Икс были отменены по причине слабых продаж.

В ашеттовский сборник «Люди Икс: В тени Саурона» вошли последние семь выпусков оригинальной линейки перед её отменой - с 59 по 66. Плюс легендарный сингл Amazing Adventures про Зверя, где Маккой наконец становится пушистым. И слава богу, что лавочку прикрыли. Очень квёлое и нежизнестойкое чтиво. Отношения в команде - как в десятом сезоне плохого ситкома: вымученные и неинтересные. Антагонистов снова целая пачка, но необходимость сливать каждого за двадцать страниц убивает всю интригу. Да и сами антагонисты - сплошное недоразумение. Расскажу только про Саурона. Энергетический вампир работает врачом-психиатром и регулярно подпитывается от своих пациентов. Однажды он решает кормиться от мутантов, но присосавшись к Хавоку получает такую дозу энергии, что превращается в разумного птеродактиля-гипнотизёра, который называет себя в честь персонажа Толкина. Разумного птеродактиля-гипнотизёра - ох. Немного тривии: энергетического вампира Саурона изначально хотели сделать гигантским нетопырем, но хейсовская цензура запретила, поэтому летучую мышь заменили на птеродактиля. Занавес.

    Otro tomo desparejo en el que lo que más sobresale es el arte de Neal Adams, con viñetas fuera de lo común y una narrativa mucho más dinámica que otras cosas de la época. Me gustó particularmente la historia con los Z'Nox a pesar de que tiene partes un poco ridículas (el desenlace probablemente se lleve el premio). Al final del tomo se incluye la historia de como Bestia se convierte en la Bestia peluda que todos conocimos y amamos. La historia es horrible, pero nunca antes la había leído así que Otro tomo desparejo en el que lo que más sobresale es el arte de Neal Adams, con viñetas fuera de lo común y una narrativa mucho más dinámica que otras cosas de la época.

    The last stories of the original X-Men are a curious bridge between the hyperbolic stiffness of the 60s and the creative highpoints of the 70s. Roy Thomas’s stories are standard superhero fare but they’re immeasurably enlivened by Neal Adams’s energetic art. There’s a pleasing early example of an ongoing story, although the convoluted twists show it often being made up on the hoof.

    Classic X-men stories, the last several actually before its cancellation. They knew from poor sales the comic was going to be axed so they pulled out all the super punches and apparently sales did begin to rise but it was too late for the original team. There is some really good stuff you'd expect, lots of action, Sauron is a good bad guy, Magneto makes an appearance. Does seems a bit dated now and simple compared to some of the stories you get.

    I read these stories in the original comics and, like a lot of people, was impressed with the dynamic look of the figures and panels of Neal Adams artwork. However, in my opinion, the stories never really lived up to the artwork and so I wasn't sad to see the end of the original team when it came. One for the history buffs.
