Sewn binding is very sturdy.
S. H. Wells
If you love the Marvel age (silver age of comics) and enjoy the stories of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby then I would suggest this collection.
D. L. Haynes
When I bought it I was a little hesitant just because it is so much for a book.

I am partial--I love the Omnibus series. Large hardcover books that look nice on a bookshelf (don't have to hide comics in large comic book boxes like a kid). This one has spectacular cover art, includes the original X-men 1-31 as well as the editorials from the Masterworks editions AND the letters to the editors and bullpen notes from the originals. Face it, most people will never get to own X-Men #1. The stories are corny, but they are also classic. Great little glimpses into the early years of the X-men. I love it. Looks great on a shelf. Sewn binding is very sturdy. Pages are thick, glossy paper. Looks great, well-crafted. Let's just hope Marvel continues the series and doesn't leave us hanging like they did with the Masterworks editions.

These were better than I expected, they held up great- and Stan Lee is such a great writer. Highly recommended, the introduction of the Juggernaut, wow! I love the fear he creates for the villains at times, where you really sense the danger the x men are facing. As always, Stan brings so much to these and that's why they stand the test of time!

I do detect a slight ungluing of the binding on the top of the book, but hopefully it won't continue. As long as the bindings are sturdy on these omnibus editions they are truly the most amazing way to experience the comics you knew and loved.

Give us full runs, Marvel! Still waiting for Thor, Doctor Strange, Uncanny X men vol 2!

The Omnibus series is great, reprinting the full comics. I read the whole series as a kid as we had all the comics (I have X-Men #1 framed on the wall, still a really cool cover), and was a big fan of the original X-Men, (liked them much better then the new X-Men). BUT, when reading them now, they just do not hold up as well as FF, Spidey, Daredevil, Iron Man, Hulk etc... Kind of like how some cartoons you loved as a kid are still good, but others you look at and wonder why you liked them...

The original X-Men was always a 2nd tier comic for Marvel. That's why they got very little of the top tier villans, and heck, ended up going into repeats before the big 'reboot' that brought us Wolverine and all (and made X-Men far more popular). They are just not as good as the other silver age Marvel comics.

If you know what you are getting, the Omnibus is great. But if you are a new X-Men fan, new comics or movies, or maybe read some of the other silver age Omnibuses and are getting this because you could never afford the real comics before, you might be dissapointed. These stories just do not hold up over time as well as others.
