Format: Paperback
This is a great book, but it's important to note that it doesn't include the ENTIRE Dark Phoenix saga. It includes Uncanny X-Men issues #132-140, while the Dark Phoenix saga begins in issue #129. The first three "prelude" issues of the story arc, including the introductions of Kitty Pryde, Emma Frost and the Hellfire Club are introduced in Volume 4. If you want to read the entire Dark Phoenix saga in one book, then you should probably purchase the Dark Phoenix compilation.

Nevertheless, this is still a really nice volume, particularly if you are a completist like myself who prefers to read all the comics rather than just selected arcs. Some of the earlier issues in Volume 4, even before the ones in the Dark Phoenix books, include some important set-up points to the story. After first reading the Dark Phoenix as a stand-alone book, I re-read it in Volumes 4 and 5 and definitely preferred reading the complete lead-up.

Besides the final six issues of the Dark Phoenix story, Volume 5 includes four quite different subsequent issues. The series caught its breath a bit with the "Elegy" issue (summing up the history of the X-Men), followed by a cracking stand-alone annual centered around Nightcrawler, and then a 2-issue story arc with Wolverine in Canada retangling with Wendigo. These last stories are quite good in their own right - containing good back-story on Kurt and Logan - but of course tend to get somewhat lost, squeezed between the iconic Dark Phoenix and Days of Future Past arcs.

Unfortunately, this volume ends just prior to the 2-issue Days of Future Past story line, which is available in its own title volume, spanning issues #138-143 and the annual.

This collection of past issues of the Uncanny X-Men is wonderful for variety of reasons. First, the introduction of Sebastion Shaw and Emma Frost of the Hellfire Club. Second, you get the entire Dark Phoenix saga wich includes argueably the best comic book cover ever, issue #135! Third, Kitty Pryde (Shadow Cat) is recruited and eventually joins the X-Men. And if you have ever played the X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse video game, you must kow that there is a unique Green Item: Wendigo's Fist. Well, these Uncanny X-Men battle said Wendigo in issue #140! Great, great collection of comics because you certainly can't beat the price.

Mild spoilers ... though nothing you can't see from the cover ... and if you've seen anything X-Men (the 90's cartoons, the movies, etc.), you've probably seen SOME version of this classic comic story ... but this is how it originally happened, and why that story has been so beloved ever since.

I collected X-Men comics back in the 80's. When I could, I even looked for good prices on back issues. The death of Phoenix affected the story arcs I started reading and lasted for hundreds of issues ... even after Jean Grey was reborn (maybe a few times ... :). The action with Wolverine at the Hellfire Club was also something often referred to in later comics (I won't say how) ... the iconic end shot of issue 132 and then issue 133 is somewhat the birth of the brutal but effective style Wolverine became famous for, whereas before this he was more of just a cocky jerk who not even the writers or artists seemed to like very much.

I read this edition with my kids, who had NEVER heard this story before. They loved the action with the Hellfire Club leading up to the final conflict. They were somewhat impressed with the ultimate reveal of the villain behind the mysterious dreams Jean has (we've also read some VERY early/classic X-men with that particular character in it). We all were drawn in by the darkness that overtakes Jean Grey and moved by the moral weight of what the X-Men had to deal with, standing by a friend who had been corrupted by great power. One strength of this story and that particular double issue in general is you get to see the ethics from each of the x-men's viewpoint as they decide wither to stand by their friend who has been put on trial by combat for the slaughter of ... well, maybe I'm saying too much ...

Some of the best stories in Marvel Xmen history. The Day that Jean Grey died. A story thread that still effects Marvel today!
