In 1986, Marvel launched CLASSIC X-MEN, a series reprinting the stories of the "All-New, All-Different X-Men" era - with a twist! New backups fleshed out the 1970s tales and delved deeper into the characters' lives - and new story pages inserted into the reprints expanded on key moments and sowed the seeds for future storylines! Now all this newly created material is collected in one volume for the first time - complete with comparisons and text articles explaining what was changed, what was added and why! It's the perfect companion to your UNCANNY X-MEN collection! Friendships are forged, allies are mourned and lives are transformed in these rare tales that dance between the raindrops of some of the most revered comics of all time!
