Essential Stuff

I have been reading Essential X-Men Volume 3 & 4 all written by Chris Claremont and have been thoroughly enjoying myself. Claremont has had one of the most celebrated runs on the X-Men and reading these volumes has helped me to understand why.
The stories are all exciting yet contain quiet character moments that allow each character to have their moment in the sun as we learn more about who they are and what makes them tick.

The villains are varied also with hardly a mention of Magneto who was starting to wear out his welcome from over exposure.

All in all it has been a lot of fun catching up with some of the high points of X-Men history.
