    I decided to go all the way with the X-men. I want to know everything from the very beginning. People talk a lot about jumping in points for comics and I'm the type of reader who needs to know everything so there was only one place to jump in; X-men issue 1, released in 1963. It's silver age comics, so don't expect the stories to hide how silly they are like with today's comics. The stories are very upfront about their nature. Super bad guy has super evil plan, let's stop him and dump huge amount I decided to go all the way with the X-men. I want to know everything from the very beginning.

It's silver age comics, so don't expect the stories to hide how silly they are like with today's comics. The stories are very upfront about their nature. Super bad guy has super evil plan, let's stop him and dump huge amounts of exposition text while we do it. It's very theatrical in a way, very verbose and over the top. On the first 30 issues you get a lot of "firsts" as you might expect. First appearance of the X-Men, of course, first appearance of Magneto, first Blob, first Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, the Sentinels, Juggernaut, Banshee, Lucifer, Quicksilver, the Scarlet Witch and others. There are very good stories in here, my favorites are: X-Men first visit to the Savage Lands. "The Coming of Ka-Zar!" (#10) An alien codenamed Stranger takes Magneto to a space zoo. "The Triumph of Magneto" (#11) First appearance of Juggernaut and the Crimson Gem of Cyttorak. "The Origin of Professor X!" (#12) The whole Sentinel saga starting with "Among Us Stalk... the Sentinels" #14, #15 and #16 Magneto's attempt to build a mutant clone army in "If Iceman Should Fail..!" #18 Prof. Xavier going solo to Lucifer's underground base in "I, Lucifer..." #20 Some times it gets repetitive and/or boring but looking back I can honestly tell it's well worth it. I created an attachment to the characters I wouldn't have if I just jumped these early issues.

    I was THIS close to just giving it 2 stars. To just be honest and even tho I hated to do it. The fact is, it is very tedious to get thru. I can like Silver Age books. But this was rough at times. It's just best to skip to the Neal Adams tpb. And there's a one shot called X-Men: Mythos. Re tells the 1st issue. There's a series that's retells the 1st year! 'Prof X and the XMen' 1-18. ( not to mention the "First Class" series) But there's just too much in this that's good. 2.5 stars if I could. I was THIS close to just giving it 2 stars.

    It's hard to give a rating to such a large collection of comics. Some in here were 5 star efforts, some only 2, but 4 seems fair as an average. It's hard to give a rating to such a large collection of comics. Some in here were 5 star efforts, some only 2, but 4 seems fair as an average.

    Middle in the road for Silver Age comics? As of this post, I haven't read too many Silver Age comics, but it's definitely not as great as some others I've read from the Silver Age like Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, or even Doom Patrol. In the beginning the art is lacking, but the Lee/Kirby run did give us The Blob, Magneto, The Sentinels, Juggernaut, and Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. The following run with Thomas/Roth are fun but mostly forgettable with villains like Dr. Hopper, the mad scientist Middle in the road for Silver Age comics?

The following run with Thomas/Roth are fun but mostly forgettable with villains like Dr. Hopper, the mad scientist that recreates the movie "Them!" but with Locusts and the like. More than 60% of the Silver Age X-Men is the Thomas/Roth run which, was the stuff that slogged the X-Men's sales and popularity from the 60's. These early stories were fun for me but I don't really recommend it unless you're a hardcore X-Men fan or a collector.

    The worst flaw is it's long windedness. It's super corny and dated. Still, it had me coming back for more and it got better with time as characters developed. One character though, "developed" so fast that his/her name changed overnight with no explanation at all. Reconned just like that! Speaking of exclamations, I suggest u use ur own punctuation....unless u like constant screaming. Enjoy, pussycats! The worst flaw is it's long windedness. It's super corny and dated.

    Se ve que este libro lo readeé hace mucho pero creo que nunca llegué a leer los treinta y un capítulos que lo componen. Con mucha suerte, la mitad. Cuando lo corrobore veo si lo paso a to-read o trato de leerme los capítulos que faltan.

    Didn't finish the whole thing. Read about 15%. It's a BIG book and it's all the old school stuff. Didn't finish the whole thing. Read about 15%. It's a BIG book and it's all the old school stuff.

    X-Men Omnibus was a fun read. The stories are in a simple, classic style but overall a lot of fun.
