the best drawing of Wolverine ever!
Hey, the Grant Morrison X-mens were great. I was sooo surprised by the Magneto thing, and I really liked Cassandra Nova's weird origin and the nanosentinels. Generally, they filled in all the interesting back stories to the Joss Whedon ones, the only other X-books I've read in modern times. Stupid Rob Liefeld and his stupid punching and mullets and pouches!

Anyone have any other recommendations for good X-men reads? My wife and I's pallettes are whetted for more!

...and, while I'm asking you stuff, does anyone know how to get rid of that black line that appears around images when you post them? Sr. Pony?

Tried to remove that black line, but I can't. Above my pay-grade, as the saying goes.

Other than those X-Men: The New Age trades by Claremont & Davis, I can't really think of much. I'd avoid X-Men: First Class despite the pretty covers.

I might have a look at the New Age.

I've actually already been subjected to The First Class crapathon because of their covers and because they were marked down at St. Mark's last time I was in New York.

I may just have to go back and re-read my wife's virtually complete collection of the various X-books, which runs from around 1977 to deep within the Liefeld era; I think I made it to about 1992 once before giving up.
