Essential X-Men, Vol. by. Chris Claremont (Author). Find all the books, read about the author, and more. In the following tales we see the X-men grow from an ordinary book into one that is amazing in the scope that comics were not back then. This is a great collection, but one must purchase Essential X-Men Vol 2 to finish reading the Claremont/Byrne run on the title. The material and stories are top notch and it is a much cheaper way to get these stories as the back issues are going for top dollar. 1 book. Essential X-Men lays the groundwork for the X-Men being Marvel's top franchise for a couple decades afterwords. Jean Grey becomes the Phoenix. Wolverine, Colossus, Storm, and Nightcrawler join the team. He is a tad prone to the overdramaticized yelling that Neal Adams and others enjoyed doing as well. There was also some creative paneling.

Essential X-Men Vol. 1 collects the first 27 issues of the revived comic . When Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum revived the title in 1975, after "X-Men" had been reduced to a reprint comic, I was not overly thrilled with the decision to jettison most of the original group. The new X-Men are put together to rescue the old X-Men, at which point the question becomes: what do you do with thirteen X-Men?

This is the X-Men as I remember them and as they were meant to be!! The current incarnations of the X-Men and indeed the whole of the Marvel Mutant-verse pale in comparison! This was Marvel at its' creative best!! These were the issues that started it all. Packed with action...every issue delivers! There is also intelligent dialogue to read, something which is sorely missing from all comics today!! Waiting a whole month between issues could be a nail biting experience as we impatiently waited and buying these comics back in the day off of the rack at 7/11 or the corner market was a thrill and we would hurry home to read them, not just have pretty pictures to look at. They even inspired us to write and draw our own comics in high school!!

Len Wein, Chris Claremont, John Byrne and, let us not forget, the inimitable inks of Terry Austin, created a truly unique super-hero team that ruled the heap for 5+ years with truly great storytelling through word and art with truly emotional content. (That is until the X-Verse became so convoluted with subpar characters and confusing and diluted cross-over story lines). The death of Thunderbird, the tension of Wolverine's feelings for Jean, the return of Magneto, a glimpse that Cyclops' father still lived, Jean Grey/Phoenix saving the universe (a small glimmer of the power that would soon manifest itself darkly), a prehistoric Savage Land adventure and Wolverine's first encounter with's all here in this first volume of the Essential X-Men and they are just as thrilling as the first time I read them nearly 40 years ago!! They reminded me of what I loved about comics...FUN!! This is something that comics have lost with writers that use dialogue VERY sparingly and have turned comics into psychological diagnoses of the characters and not to mention the run-of-the-mill (insert any name here) artists whose styles all seem similar. We once had Jack "King" Kirby, Gil Kane, John Byrne, John Buscema, George Tuska, Gene Colan, John Romita and sooo many others who we all knew their names because of their style!! When we discuss comics...everyone always talks about the classic writers and artists because they stood out.

So...when all is said and done...should you purchase this first volume of the Essential Classic X-Men? HELL YEAH!! The issues collected here are the greatest!! But don't stop here...oh no...keep collecting with the next three volumes. With the four volumes you will have all the best collected issues of the X-Men!!

Happy Reading to all!!
To me, this is where the "real" x-men started (sorry if I'm stepping on any toes). The x-men I knew from the 80's were Wolverine, Storm, Colussus, Nightcrawler, Rogue, Cyclops and Sprite. This book starts with issue #100 which is where the first four of these were originally introduced - Marvel had discontinued the series completely until Chris Claremont agreed to take it over, and pretty much got rid of all the old characters and started over from scratch. My only complaint is that all the comics printed here are presented in black and white... I'd gladly pay a few dollars more for a color reprint (I mean come on guys, the originals sold for $1 each in color!)
For less than $14 plus shipping you can get introduced to the essential Uncanny X-men. This is a five star deal. Yes, the comics are not in color. Also, the comics are printed on plain paper, little better in quality than news print. However, you're getting a graphic novel that would cost over four times as much if you got it in color and on good paper. This is a nice way to get into the X-men universe at an inexpensive cost.

The reader is introduced to the new X-men. It's over 31 years since the "retool" date and many of these characters are going strong. There are Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, and Nightcrawler in this comic. All have been in the recent X-men movies. It gives great praise to Chris Claremont that his writing has stood the test of time.

The comics go from the inception of the new X-men to the start of the Phoenix saga. The X-men annual of 1975 introduces us to the new X-men. Some of the mutants have been around, like Cyclops, and some were the bad guys, like Banshee. They form a new team to save the old X-men from a new evil.

Where the comic books gets real good is in the new Uncanny X-men comics. At that time this reviewer was a kid and really enjoyed the "James Bond" like setting in the comic Warhunt. The X-men must save America from nuclear war. The result is the X-men win but at terrible costs.

After a rather slow single story the retooled Sentinels return. Dave Cockrum's art work is second to none during this time. This is the time the buyer of the book wishes it was color. However, this is where you get what you pay for.

The end of the Sentinel story goes straight to the beginning of the Phoenix saga. What is really strange is Marvel's X-men comics were putting out stories that were years ahead of any thing science fiction books were doing. Indeed, it's a wonder that a special Nebula award was not given to Chris and Dave for the wonderful work on the uncanny X-men.

The Dark Chrystal and "end-of-the-universe" stories take up the bulk of this book. However, there is an very good comic on the re-introduced Magneto. Only one X-man can "check" Magneto, not beat him.

Now, on it's "debit" side there is a poor story on "Warhawk". This was when Marvel was having producting problems in 1977 and Dave Cockrum was unable to make a production deadline.

John Byrne takes over the art from Dave Cockrum at the end of the Starjammers/Crystal story line.

I highly encourage any buyer to get the Essentials X-men Vol. II for the Phoenix saga.

This comic series is a sample of the "art" form in the late 1970s. The X-men under Dave Cockrum, John Byrne, and Chris Claremont was as good as any comic ever written. Now the X-men have fame the equal of Batman and Superman. It was all due to the work of those three individuals.

This graphic novel is worth five stars. It deserves six.
Essential X-men volume 1 is really good! It has the same issues the first printing has but also has some character profies,sketches,and background material. This book reprints Giant-Size X-men#1 and Uncanny X-Men 94-119! I like this book more that the first Edition because the book has material and has a better cover. these are the stories most comic books fans know as All New, All Different X-men, with Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Storm, Colossus, Banshee,joining Cyclops, and Professor X. The only thing I am not happy about this book is the it is Black & White. There is no color on the pages because It is Newsprint. B
