    Jack Phoenix

    Piskor's narrative of a consolidated X-Men history stays strong as he dives into more familiar territory for the modern comic fan, even if some of the power and emotion from those original, groundbreaking stories are inevitably lost.

Literally. I once lived downwind of a paper mill and this is exactly what this book's odor reminds me of. I thought it was an oddity with the copy of Vol. 1 I read but, here it is again, so it must be the ink or the paper used. And it really taints the reading experience. Volume two covers X-Men history from issues 94-186. 30 issues more than the last volume and during a time when the stories were far richer than the punch-up of the month they had been before Claremont took over. The result is a mostly soulless retelling of some of the most memorable moments in the series with lot of bizarre changes. Days of Future Past is ignored entirely. Storm's mohawk becomes a reaction to losing her powers, rendering a powerful statement of self-expression into an emo tantrum. Every plot point is handled so perfunctorily and the pacing so fast that the whole book feels like a "Last time, on X-Men" montage. Piskor does sprinkle some fun Easter eggs throughout, Like being Donald Pierce's cyborg arm being drawn as a Nintendo power glove, but the total package is still rushed and devoid of the emotional beats that made This era of the X-men so beloved.

    I admire what Piskor is trying to do here: take the X-men narrative and make it coherent in a style that reflects classic comics. This volume moves from the classic era of X-men's silver age to the Giant-sized reboot and into the Claremont era which defined the X-men for that point forever. The issue is that it feels rushed and plots that are were complicated are reduced, added too, and made more seamless. Piskor's art is interesting and very retro but lacks some of the strength of Cockrum and B I admire what Piskor is trying to do here: take the X-men narrative and make it coherent in a style that reflects classic comics. This volume moves from the classic era of X-men's silver age to the Giant-sized reboot and into the Claremont era which defined the X-men for that point forever. The issue is that it feels rushed and plots that are were complicated are reduced, added too, and made more seamless. Piskor's art is interesting and very retro but lacks some of the strength of Cockrum and Byrne. Furthermore, that becomes slightly more obvious when Piskor's recoloring of Giant-sized one is included in the package. Furthermore, Piskor has to consolidate more: this covers Uncanny X-men 94-186 and covers some key Claremont works like the Pheonix and Dark Pheonix saga. Piskor does cover more issues which have a more complicated plot and character development in a similar space. While I do still appreciate Piskor's attempt to make a singular and definitive continuity, I would take the discontinuity of the whole and the developed arcs in the original as my definitive so far.

    Good stuff, but not as good as the first volume. Also, as someone who's read a bunch of early comics, I can tell you the utility for volume 1, which saves you the trouble of reading comics from the era when writers and artists were still figuring things out, is higher than this one. This one covers over some really good comics, still some of my favorites. While I'm heavily in favor of reading the first volume to skate through early X-Men history, which is more fun to talk about than actually rea Good stuff, but not as good as the first volume.

While I'm heavily in favor of reading the first volume to skate through early X-Men history, which is more fun to talk about than actually read, this volume skates you through issues that are pretty great to read in full. The whole Dark Phoenix Saga is a really good X-Men story, tons of fun, and I'd recommend you go ahead and just read it. I guess it's a Piskor thing, sometimes stuff skips around. You're in one story, then bam, you're in another. Seemed more pronounced in this one. The transitions could be smoother. A good comic, a good project. I'd love to see this treatment on some of the very early issues of some other books.

    Pretty much everything I said in my review of the first volume still applies. This volume covers the period from around 1975-1985. X-Men continuity starts getting pretty weird in the 80s, and that's all reflected here. Piskor does manage to make things somewhat coherent, but it's all still a (glorious) mess. His art style doesn't work quite as well on the 80s material as it does on the 60s stuff, but it does still work, and he adjusts it a bit without losing what makes it unique.

This is still very much a worthwhile read, and in some ways, even more fun than the first volume.

    Streamlines the canon for old fans and brings new readers into some of the best years of the X-men with style and includes a gorgeous re-colored edition of Giant Size X-Men #1, which holds up very well. If you read this and enjoy it I would highly recommend any of the late 70's/80's X-men or the spinoffs that these stories are taken from.

    Good, continuing the tale of the X-Men as if it were all just one contiguous story. I liked this one well enough although maybe not quite as much as the first one, there were a few story points that just didn't really seem to get wrapped up. Anyway, still enjoying it over all.

    Another cool compilation of X-Men history smashing together multiple storylines. One section focused on the Dark Phoenix story which is fortuitous given the movie coming out next year. A must for any X-Men fan or even someone like me whose only exposure (almost) has been on the silver screen

    Really enjoying these creative "recaps" of X-Men history. I get flashbacks to reading issues of X-Men Classic.

    The Cockrum/Byrne/Smith year’s and the start of Romita jr. Soooo goood!

    I loved it. Screw all the stuck up people who think his art is terrible or brought other high brow glossy ideas to this masterpiece.

    A continuing history of the X-Men and their trials and tribulations.

    Again, another perfect X-Men comic by Piskor.

    Another great, streamlined piece of X-men lore from Ed Piskor. Really hoping we get a full chronology!

    Not as strong as the first volume but still a worthwhile take on the era. Interestingly (expectedly?), it gets messier as the X-continuity gets messier.

    Still think this is a great summary and breezy overview of important X-Men stories. Dark Phoenix!

    Daniel Butcher

    Interesting historical take of X-men history that is perhaps at times too fast cutting (because Piskor is working a lot of history in),

    Hard to summarize some of the best comic arcs in history, but the art is still incredible and it's full of great little gifts for X-Men fans
