A few words on my Tuesday comics haul, my love for old comics, and what I'm currently reading :)
I enjoyed the 1988 Uncanny X-Men issues I picked up last Sunday so much, that I went back to BAM! and piced up some more issues that surround the "Fall of the Mutants" event of early 1988. As I say in the video, while I'm a novice at the X-Men, these aren't my first experiences with the group. I had some Uncanny X-Men in my teen years, including this trade paperback (left) that follows the group through 1980, telling the story of Jean Grey's fall from grace in the "Dark Phoenix" story arc- loved it as a kid and read it again a year ago. This well-thumbed tome is fallin' apart at the seams! -Loved it as a kid and read it again a year ago.
AND... The TPB of Avengers-Defenders War (Marvel, 2002) I scored on Amazon came in today- a reprinted collection of Avengers #115-118, and Defenders#8-11, the 1973 crossover clash of these two titles' Marvel superhero teams. Look at that new cover! You know that's gonna rock!
As stated in my last post, I have great a love for old comics & the old Marvel stories, remembering pop culture back when I was a kid, and thinking about that in context with all that came to be up to now. Fascinating! They are a slice of a time past- an exciting, fun time in the Marvel Universe.
More Later- Make It Fun!
