Format: Paperback
In the early1990's the X-Men were the best selling comics around, and that had a lot to do with superstar artist Jim Lee. Lee's stylized and action-oriented artwork was the perfect counterpart to Chris Claremont's dynamic characters, and he soon became the definitive X-Men artist, as well as one of the decade's most imitated. The X-Men: Visionaries - Jim Lee trade paperback collects every single issue of Uncanny X-Men that Jim Lee worked on, including:

Uncanny X-Men #248 - This throwaway Nanny story was really only significant for being Lee's first issue on the title.

Uncanny X-Men #256-258 - This killer 3-part series, which was part of Marvel's Acts of Vengeance crossover, brought Wolverine back to Asia, completely overhauled the Psylocke character, and put our heroes up against the Hand and the Mandarin. This story, which drew inspiration from the best Asian cinema, was one of the most memorable Claremont/Lee collaborations.

Uncanny X-Men #268 - Still regarded as one of the best single-issue X-Men stories of all time, this issue chronicled the first meeting of Wolverine and Captain America, and brought their adventure full circle 50 years later. The Black Widow also plays a major role.

Uncanny X-Men #269 - This issue features Rogue in a solo adventure that takes her all the way to the Savage Land to encounter none other than Magneto. This one sets the bar pretty high for all future "hot chick in the jungle" stories!

Uncanny X-Men #273-277 - This storyline is focused on two major events. The first features Rogue, Magneto, Ka-Zar, and Nick Fury in the Savage Land against the new mistress of magnetism Zaladane. The second finds the rest of the X-Men sent to space to encounter the Shi'Ar, the Starjammers, and their mentor Professor X.

Format: Paperback
This book should be titled "How to draw the X-Men by Jim Lee". Seriously. The stories here are nothing to shout about though the Claremont wit is to be seen in many panels. The real draw of the book is Lee's art which is gloriously reproduced here. For those of us who grew up in the 1980s, we felt this revolution firsthand. Comic books would never be the same again after Lee. The impact of his hyper-detailed, solid-bodied art hit comic-readers the way Neal Adams did in the 1970s. Lee understands the iconism and sexiness of superhero comics and display his knack for capturing both with his pencils (aided by inker Scott Williams).
The highlights:
1) Lee draws the best one-page splash Captain America EVER!
2) Psylocke's transformation from English lady to sexy Asian assassin.
3) The Crossing storyline - see Jim Lee draw cosmic! Shiar, the Imperial Guard, the Starjammers, etc.
4) The Magneto/Rogue Savage Land storyline - Jim Lee's Magneto is unbelievable. Regal, majestic and sexy at the same time. This is a Magneto that a girl will fall in love with - and literally does - the girl in question, unlikely as it is, Rogue! See also Jim Lee's drawing of Nick Fury, the SHIELD helicarrier and Kazar.
Get this volume and the following volume, "X-Men: Mutant Genesis" for the greatest X-Men eye-candy in history.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent x-men paperback. It explores one of the hottest x-women's orgin, psylocke, and how she came to be a
beautiful asian "action junkie". There are two things that i did not like. Number one, I don't know who picked out that cover but it had nothing to do with the entire paperback. Another down side to this comic is that after 303 pages they didn't even finish off the ending. Other then that it's worth every penny to purchase this paperback!

Format: Paperback
This is a really fun little graphic novel, loaded with great artwork and a decent storyline. I wouldn't recommend it as a first-time read for anyone unfamiliar with the X-Men - taken out of context from the overall series - it might be a somewhat confusing introduction. But for those who know the characters and have a general idea of what is going on, believe me, this one delivers the goods.
In the past, I have generally hated the X-Men's adventures in the Savage Land, or whenever they would go to outer space or get into really super sci-fi type situations. I always felt the X-Men stories worked much better when they were grounded in very normal, down-to-earth settings, because it made the X-Men themselves stand out and seem that much weirder. But this book is an exception to the rule. It's a big, crazy, larger-than-life adventure, part of which takes place in the prehistoric Savage Land, and part of which gets hyper technological, and it works out OK.
The artwork is tough and gritty. Jim Lee draws a mean, shadowy, ugly Wolverine who kills lots of villains and looks like he needs to take a shower very badly.
And Lee's women - whoa. This book contains more gratuitous cheescake shots than any X-Men graphic novel I've seen, but it's all very pleasing to the eye. Especially the scenes with Rogue, whose bare skin can kill anyone she touches and thus, understandably, was always the one major female character who kept herself completely covered at all times. This was the first storyline in the series where they finally drew her as a scantily-clad, sexy heroine. A real treat for male Rogue-fans who'd been reading the series patiently for years.
