I am certain many X-men fans are scratching their heads and wondering why there is still no Uncanny X-men vol 2 omnibus. I am one of those fans. In the meantime Marvel has decided to publish the first of 2 announced X-men omnibus books highlighting Marvel's mutant adventures in the early 1990's. This collection reprints Uncanny X-men issues 244-269. Jim Lee gets top artistic billing but Marc Silvestri actually penciled the bulk of the book.

This omnibus follows the adventures of the X-men following the events of Inferno, the groups's transformation after the seige perilous, the introduction of Gambit and the ultimate revamping of the X-teams. The art varies. Marc Silvestri fans have plenty to be happy about. I loved his take on the X-men, his pencils were gritty and loose - a sketchy style that gave the book a kinda rough, edgy look. His art was only ruined by poor inkers that cropped up from time to time. There are some guest pencillers on a few issues but the real treat is the work of Jim lee. Jim Lee's first X-men issues with long-time collaborator/inker Scott Williams obviously sought to impress as the 3 issue arc transforming Psychlocke from boring British telepath to edgy ninja vixen is simply stunning. The first 2 issues of his uncanny run as regular penciler (268-269)end the omnibus but they are amazing! Jim lee draws a tough Captain America and its easy to see why Marvel has used the images from this book of the captain in so many promo pieces over the years.

Marvel includes lots of extras in the form of Jim lee sketches, covers he did for other Marvel titles (alpha flight, Wolverine, Punisher) and some nice promo art I had only seen in defunt mag Comics Scene.

The book itself is the typical omnibus format from Marvel with dust jacket and sewn binding.

A little marketing put into the title on Amazon. The book cover bills itself "Chris Claremont, Jim Lee, Marc Silvestri" Jim Lee pencils a few issues in the book but it is predominantly a collection of the post Inferno X-men run up to the Gambit intro/Wolverine, Cpt. America, Black Widow classic one-shot. You do get some Jim Lee, but you get as much Silvestri and other assorted artists (a Rob Liefeld!)

If you were into the X-men during the early 1990ish boom you will love this collection. If you are really just a Jim Lee fan looking for his breakthrough work you may want to look elsewhere.

I received my X-Men omnibus today. Once again Amazon packaged a 7 pound book with no packing materials in an over sized boxed. Thankfully the damage was limted to some slight crunching of the bottom corners of the book. Not really enough damage to return this time. Chris Claremont was my god back in the day. To this day he is still the best writer ever to grace the pages of the X-Men. This book is billed as a Claremont and Lee Omnibus, but in reality Jim Lee did the art on maybe 7 issues of the 25 issues included. The only questionable thing in my mind is why Marvel decided to include X-Men Annual 13 which has neither Claremont or Lee, especially when they are putting the "Atlantis Attacks" annual crossover in it's own Omnibus. In my opinion, the annual is the only low point in the book. The rest is a big chunk of Uncanny X-Men goodness. Printed on oversize archival paper, the pages are just beautiful. A great addition to my collection and I'm already looking forward to Volume 2 early next year.

What can I possibly say about this collection of the fabled Chris Claremont's seventeen-year-run on Uncanny X-Men? If you're still reading by this point in the series, you're a fan. Rereading these tales for the first time since they originally debuted over twenty years ago (WTF?!), I was honestly expecting that they'd have lost their luster since they were late in Claremont's run. Alas this was not so...this picks up after Inferno (when multi-book X-events were still fresh and welcomed) and quickly breaks down the team's status quo, giving way to an unconventional team. I remember agonizing over how long it took a more classic roster to come back to together but looking at this now it's undeniably a fresh take on the title. It's great to see some of these characters fleshed out and allowed to shine (remember when Forge was more nuanced and not just the X-Men's 'tech guru'?). As it is, this is unquestionably a great read and if you love the X-Men this is is a must own book for your collection.

This is the start of the great transition from the late 80s era X-Men to the 90s Gold & Blue teams, and also contains some great art from an up and coming Jim Lee along with an always solid Marc Silvestri. Here we see the leaving of Dazzler & Longshot, the first appearances of Jubilee & Gambit, a reborn Psylocke, and the beginnings of the Wolverine and Jubilee as a duo.

There are some weak spots. Although this volume mostly take place over a year of publication, there are 20 something plus issues here. This was a time when X-Men was coming out bi-monthly, and sometimes even tri-monthly. Very few artists can keep up with that pace, and many substitutes were brought in on issues, some to little success. The inclusion of the X-Men annual that ties into the Atlantis Attacks storyline was also jarring, as it has nothing to do with the continuing storyline and opens with a team member in a switched body with a Captain America villain, something that isn't clear at first.

Over all, I have to give this collection 5 stars, because the quality is amazing, and honestly I just wanted something of high quality that would stand the test of time for my collection. I'd give the stories contained within, odd annual and sometimes inconsistent art included, about 4 & 1/2 stars. It's a great read for anyone interested in the era, though it would be best to also buy Xtinction Agenda and Volume 2 to get the full story.
