    One thought on “The Uncanny X-Men Omnibus Volume 1”

    1. It s hard to believe in these days of a dozen X titles, but there was once a time when the X Men weren t popular Despite a well liked run by Neal Adams revamping the original team with new costumes, the book fell into reprints and from there, cancellation Almost A young upstart named Chris Claremont, fresh off smaller Marvel books like Iron Fist, came in with artist Dave Cockrum and created a completely new team, ditching all but one member of the original team They added minor, unknown characte [...]

    2. Going back to something that you loved from your childhood can be a daunting experience If you ve ever tried to re watch an old episode of Thundercats or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and you re not deluding yourself into thinking that they re still good , then you ll know where I m coming from As such, it was with some hesitance that I approached this Marvel Omnibus Chris Claremont s legendary 20 year run on Uncanny X Men is considered the most influential period in the franchise s history but, [...]

    3. You know how you can read something that you know is a classic, you can see why it s great, but it s obviously old And might be hard to get thru at times.Well this isn t it This is not only classic, it s fun, it s epic, it s entertaining in every way For some reason or another after a couple of years ill end up rereading it from the start Maybe there s some issues in the end I never got to, I mean it s a pretty big book And rereading it, it just doesn t get old I started reading X Men in 95 when [...]

    4. I apparently bought this for sixty bucks back in 2006, according to records I would guess this is one of the smartest things I did that year.

    5. This was an amazing read I m a person who enjoys a lot to see the beginning of things, and for the X Men, this was the perfect way to do that Sure some of the stories are a bit outdated, but some of them were really good, the Phoenix arc was a space trip, the savage lands, the beginning of the dark phoenix story, the hellfire club, plus the introduction of amazing characters such as Wolverine, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Storm, Kitty PrideGreat stuff.

    6. These are the original X Men stories from the early 70s They are equal parts fun and frustrating fun because they are campy and cheesy and embrace this completely One of the most interesting aspects are how, on the one hand, the X Men are a metaphor for every discriminated minority, and yet on the other how oblivious the writers were to the casual sexism and occasional racism At one point in the first issue, no less Professor X race shames a Native American mutant named Thunderbird to stop helpi [...]

    7. I give it a 3 only because of the old campy start and inconsistency of the story The uncanny xmen start and develop from beginning but the writing explains obvious details and the commentary is cheesy golden era or Adam west batman feeling Once Byrne starts on art half way it rapidly changes to allow the story carry itself without the hand holding or I just got used to it Story and character development occurs right from the beginning with a rapid handover from the old team and parsing so glad s [...]

    8. I borrowed this off a buddy Thanks, man WHERE TO BEGIN In 1975, Chris Claremont begins his long and prolific run on The Uncanny X Men, a struggling Marvel title that had been in reprints for like 5 years The CHILDREN OF THE ATOM need to be reinvigorated So Professor Charles Xavier recruits new X Men for his fake school real superhero team They would form a POP CULTURE JUGGERNAUT that would dominate the world of comics for the next, hmmmmmmm, maybe 20 odd years Well, the juggernaut is formed here [...]

    9. I love the slow burning story of the Phoenix Saga ovee most of the issues in this omnibus It includes many classic stories that were adapted in the 90s X men animated series.

    10. Una grande rilettura.Le storie sono decisamente dei classici, scritte grandiosamente da Chris Claremont e disegnate prima dal compianto Dave Cockrum e poi da un John Byrne giunto all apice della forma, apice che manterr per oltre un decennio Diversi inchiostratori all opera, tra cui spicca Terry Austin e i sempre eccellenti colori di Glynis Oliver.Qui, tra la fine degli anni 70 ed i primi anni 80 del secolo scorso, nasce e si consolida il mito degli X Men con storie che ancora oggi sono capolavo [...]

    11. I used to read this title when I was a teenager it was translated to french in the 80s and I have to say it did not age well.Still some of the stories are pretty good like the one involving Proteus or the one introducing the Hellfire club.

    12. All epoca fu una scelta molto coraggiosa e rischiosa, a port a trasformare gli X Men nella pubblicazione trainante della Marvel per vent anni.

    13. I can write a thousand words and it won t be enough Thousand words won t even begin to cover it.Have you wondered how all those children s comics from the 60s turned to complicated and rich stories in the 80s Well, it all started here.Chris Claremont reinvented the X men, he reinvented Marvel, he reinvented the superhero genre He is a true genius, no one could deny that He turned the X men into the complicated, political story we know and love today He created and introduced some of the most bel [...]

    14. The beginning of Chris Claremonts classic 17 year run, and start of my love for the X Men A team with Banshee, Cyclops, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Collosus and storm to name a few, this Omnibus has it all Starjammers, a fight with the classic X Men team, Alpha Flight, the set up to the Dark Phoenix Saga, a trip to The Savage Land, and appearances of alot of Marvel characters like Spiderman I got nothing but love for this omni, and i can recommend them highly to everyone who likes Marvel Superheroe [...]

    15. Great book Definitely worth picking up if you have any interest in reading the X Men The stories get better as the book progresses.

    16. I m going to change my rating from 4 to 5 stars This is a fantastic omnibus that gives the reader probably the most important run in the franchise, Thanks to it booming in popularity as it was on the brink of cancellation Despite being four decades old at this point, the writing holds up surprisingly well, It can be melodramatic at times and has that old comic book cliche of Oh your optic blasts can t effect me because I created a specific shield to counter that etc etc It s really the relations [...]

    17. First of all, I m new to x men comics I loved the 90 s x men cartoon as a kid, and I played the Sega Genesis game all the time I remember being impressed by my Marvel loving cousin growing up, who seemed to have a handle on the vast array of characters and plot lines I was fascinated, but I never got into the comics myself because of the vastness of the history and the expense of staying up to date Enter the Podcast Rachel and Miles X plain the X men , which provided exactly what I needed to get [...]

    18. I bought this omnibus edition to replace the original comics I sold years ago I looked at replacing them with the Marvel Masterworks series but they would often go in and out of print and the prices, at times, would sky rocket After a bit of investigating I decided that best way to replace my much loved and regrettably sold Uncanny X men comics was a Marvel Omnibus edition I was reluctant at first because of the size but in the end I was not disappointed The binding is sewn and there s no gutter [...]

    19. It is hard now to think that this was once Stan Lee s worst title There really wasn t much to say about the Xmen then Kirby deserted the book quickly and with rare instances the art was nearly as bad as the stories True, guys like Roy Thomas and Neal Adams did a great job, but really the book wasn t going anywhere Really the guy who saved it was Chris Claremont Taking it up after Len Wien came in and did one issue, another rat leaving the sinking ship, Claremont really turned it into something T [...]

    20. The second wave of merry mutants has always been my fav There s this magnificent mix of stereoty I mean, nationalities which makes for a very interesting team dynamic And you learn some Russian on the side, da The plots are magnificently campy, but have that underlying symbolism everyone loves the X Men for Claremont does often forget he has an artist who is very much able to show what is happening, and that the consequently doesn t have to have the character SAY what they re going to do in the [...]

    21. I don t really think it s necessary to review this book you either see it and want it immediately as I did or you re not sure what it s all about If you re in the first group, then buy it Please note that it stops after issue 131 which is cheating and Marvel knows it s cheating, but you should still buy it Then buy a used copy of The Dark Phoenix Saga because screw Marvel that s why there is no reason to buy the second Omnibus If you re not sure what it s all about, then just get a used copy of [...]

    22. As far as super hero books go this run has just about everything you could ask for space pirates, mutant pterodactyl vampires, space bird people, the X Men in a giant pinball machine, the list goes on It takes a little while for the book and characters to find their feet but that s also kind of the point, this is the new X Men becoming a team and by the end we re left with a book and team that s really firing on all cylinders This part of Claremont s run is a bit overshadowed by all the great st [...]

    23. A great slice of history Some characters that have lasted decades get their start here, and even from the beginning they are built to last The art is always good if not amazing in these issues There is some 70 s silliness to be sure, but overall I am not surprised that this became Marvel s flagship series after reading a foundation this solid read on Marvel Unlimited

    24. It takes almost 400 pages for the new team to hit their stride art and story wise So slog through the early and tough days and it s worth it I have most of these original comics and it was a shock how crude the first phase of a team that would come to define modern comics was But how weird it was at the time is still impressive.

    25. The start of one of the best comic book runs ever published The long term story really pay off The only comics from The Big 2 with this kind of storytelling is Avengers and New Avengers by Jonathan Hickman Sadly Hickman s run is focused on plot than characters something Claremont almost never forgets.

    26. Great collection I gobbled it up The pages are nice and heavy and glossy I read this collection because I was only familiar with the newest X men and not with the UnCanney X Men I would like to read the originals that came even before this collection The evolution of the X men is a topic that fascinates me.

    27. I dont actually own the Omnibus edition but I read the originals when they were out 94 145 was just amazing The Paul Smith era that followed was very good too but Byrne and Claremont were on another planet at the time.

    28. Classics in ever sense This idea of mutant superheros was all but done with flagging sales when Chris Claremont took over and began his long run of X men story telling that made the X men into one of Marvel s best selling books That story run begins here.

    29. Though not as polished as modern day comics, these still remain gripping They re also impressive for the raw creativity that continues to influence the comics today, including creations such as the Shi ar, the Imperial Guard, Alpha Flight, the Hellfire Club, and of course the new X Men themselves.
