Book Review: Essential X-Men by John Byrne - Reviewed by Patrick (09 Jun 2010)
The X-Men are one of Marvel's most popular franchises and this collection shows why. The X-Men are outcast from society simply because they are different. Their goal is to protect a world that often fears and hates them. They are not simply a superhero team but a family.
This edition collects some of the most classic comic issues, not just in regards to the X-Men but comics in general. The Dark Phoenix Saga is arguably the greatest comic book story ever told. And the Days of Future Past storyline is another fan favourite. Legendary X-Men writer Chris Claremont is at his peak here as is artist John Byrne who pens most of the issues included. The comics are printed here in black and white which keeps the price low and it does not hurt the art in anyway. A must for any fans of the X-Men, comics in general, or a great starting point for someone keen to enter comics.
