- The first issue is a summary of the many many adventures of the X-Men up until that point. While it's certainly interesting if you don't follow the books to closely, it's not very exciting and sort of boring.
- The second issue is "Nightcrawler's inferno", which is a huge reference to Dante's Inferno, and might interest you if you've never read the book, but it's otherwise quite skippable and not too interesting.
- Then there's a Canadian adventure which is at least fun (trivia: Wolverine's civilian name is revealed here).
- And it ends with a violent and thrilling Xmas story, with newly recruited Kitty Pryde trying to survive the night against a smart and deadly monster.
Not the best collection, but the main story and the trivia value makes it worth it if you enjoy the X-men. You can always see the other stories as "bonus content" I guess.
For Mr. Claremont at his best, check out X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills
I found that I wanted some of these again particularly the brood story arc that is in this set. The set is definitely worth the price. Much cheaper and takes less time to find. For instance I paid many years ago about a hundred for the wolverine set 1-4 for the originals for that one series. Some others like magik were not expensive but took some time to find.
Took pic of back cover both covers and the list of comics enclosed. Again very happy to pick this up.
Was very gritty and edgy when first published. It exposed my young ears and eyes to things like ethnic cleansing of a fictional people"mutants" and other things and concepts.
I like this set far more than the movie but I love comics as well.
