Essential X-Men, Vol. 2 by Chris Claremont

This is perhaps THE most iconic story in the entire history of the X-Men. I read it as a kid, The Dark Phoenix Saga collected in a trade. It was interesting but a bit hard to follow, as a kid, disconnected from the rest of Claremonts run. Reading it now, for the first time, in the context of his legendary run? It was fantastic. I particularly liked reading The Phoenix Saga first and then seeing how it led to The Dark Phoenix Saga later. I will admit it is a bit of an abrupt shift, to see the Phoenix Force go from this liberating vision of Jean Greys power to the demonic force of corruption that possesses her. However reading these issues in conjunction with Ramzi Fawas BRILLIANT The New Mutants: Superheroes and the Radical Imagination of American Comics explains with depth and insight both the larger themes within the work as well as the cultural forces that helped shape the narrative.

The X-Mens greatest author and his most iconic storyline of all time - it was fast, fun, and there is SO MUCH MORE going on here than I got as a kid (obviously :) ). How was I not going to enjoy this? Again, its worth noting I read this digitally on Marvel Unlimited but Ive picked this edition because it incorporates the issues I read,

Essential Marvel is a line published by Marvel Comics that reprints vintage comic book material in paperback format. Each black-and-white volume reprints approximately issues of a classic Marvel title mostly from the Silver Age or Bronze Age. Each Essential contains between and pages, printed on coarse, matte -quality paper. The decision to skip the original X-Men in favor of starting with the more well known "All-New, All-Different" X-Men was controversial, [ citation needed ] though Marvel ultimately went back and began a new collection of Essential volumes, titled Essential Classic X-Men , to collect the earliest X-Men stories originally titled Essential Uncanny X-Men.

  1. We sure waited a long time for Volume 2 of the "Essential Classic X-Men," not to be confused with the "Essential X-Men" (which is now up to Volume 7), since.
