As for the writing and artwork, they are both excellent. Claremont really does a great job redesigning the X-men team and slowly building up the Pheonix story arc. As for the artwork, much of it is done by Byrne, who is becoming one of my favorite artists. His pencil work is great and looks amazing still after almost forty years.
As for the book itself. The new Marvel omnibus editions are somewhat different. First, the cover has a different look and feel. I liked the older version's look better, however, the new look doesn't take away from the final product in any way. It still has a sturdy sewn binding and plenty of extras, with my favorite being the letters to the staff. As for the paper quality, it is thinner, however, the ink soaked into it perfectly, and made the artwork look excellent.
If you like classic stories and/or Claremont's writing or Bryne's artwork, pick this up. Even with the new look, this is an excellent collection and worth your money.
With superb ART and STORIES crafted by CHRIS CLAREMONT, DAVE COCKRUM and master talent JOHN BYRNE, the narrations, the dialogues, the trials, the sense of family among other essential factors, makes this amazing set ONE OF MIGHTY MARVEL'S GREATEST TREASURES !!.
Collecting GIANT SIZE X-MEN # 1, THE X-MEN #94 to #131 and ANNUAL #3 respectively, a well made book with high quality paper which really shows up the art, you have approximately 40 classic comics in one place, you're in for a visual and mental treat !!.
Here, we witness events (conflicts) involving: KRAKOA,the living island, THE SENTINELS, PRINCESS LILANDRA and THE IMPERIAL GUARDS, THE STARJAMMERS, MAGNETO, THE JUGGERNAUT, ALPHA FLIGHT,KAZAR, SAURON, ARKON, MOSES MAGNUM, and who could dare forget...PROTEOUS...the deadliest ever!! among others..
In issue #129, THE DARK PHOENIX SAGA..one of Marvel's greatest epics, begins and continues in VOL #2.
Though a tad pricey, it's all wort it and if you are a fan of THE UNCANNY X-MEN, you'll agree. Very,very highly recommended to all MARVELITES, these are award-winning comics, to own this UNCANNY X-MEN OMNIBUS VOL #1 will be your own personal award....MAKE MINE MIGHTY MARVEL...EXCELSIOR...INDEED!!!.
We get to see relationships develop between Cyclops, Wolverine, Storm, Banshee, Nightcrawler and Colossus, who all went on to become some of the most recognizable characters in comics. You'll see plenty of different villains, including some classic battles with Magneto and Juggernaut and the first appearance of the Shi'ar, Shadow King, Proteus and the Hellfire Club.
Anybody who loves the X-Men absolutely must pick this up. I have the two Jim Lee Omnibus collections as well, with the gap in between filled by smaller collections, and this is by far my favorite of the three.
The colors leap off the page in the original registers --bright, bold, and 'happy.'
I think some people may see that as a liability. It's true that coloring has come a long way since these books were first published, but Byrne's line work was designed to mute those garish four-color wonders, adding depth with line and ink instead of hue and value.
Frankly, . . . I loved it.
I can hardly wait for the second volume.
