Good stuff but not as good as the first volume Also as someone who s read a bunch of early comics I can tell ou the utility for volume 1 which saves ou the trouble "of reading comics from the era when writers and artists were still figuring things out is higher "reading comics from the era when writers and artists were still figuring things out is higher 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 fun to talk about than actually read this volume skates ou 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 VO2 max l'preuve du temps you go ahead and just read it I guess it s a Piskor thing sometimes stuff skips around You re in one story then bamou re in another Seemed 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 Classic 80s X Men stories told with a uirky off beat art style Sign me up See my comments on the first volume if Kanji et Kana : Manuel et lexique des 2141 caractres officiels de l'criture japonaise suivi de caractres composs formant un vocabulaire de base de plus de 12 000 mots you are curious about these books but let me add that one of Mr Piskor s greatest feats here is the way he condensesears of issues into single pages or sometimes even single frames or panels I didn t read or follow much of what happened towith the X Men over many ears but I feel he s made nice selections of what moments and events to feature and recreate in detail and what is best summarized And he s Not Done Yet This done et This begins with the introduction of the new team from Giant Sized X Men 1 which is reprinted at the end and moves thru the Dark Phoenix saga by it s midpoint The latter half is much of what and why I fell away from reading this title as it s a bit of a soap opera although their personal lives and conflicts has always been a big part of the story and a space opera with the Shi ar empire And does anyone like the Alien like brood or the Moorlocks I m not as familiar and therefore fond of those storylines but that is what makes an overview like this a uick enjoyable way to get thru these parts of the overall saga And Mr Piskor is not done et There is of the grand design to reveal A great primer for anyone who s been interested in the X Men s history but too intimidated by the sheer amount of it This covers the introduction of the 2nd X Me. The seuel to the critical smash hit X MEN GRAND DESIGN is here and it's ALL NEW and ALL DIFFERENT Witness Wolverine Thunderbird Colossus Storm and Sunfire suit up as X Men for the very first time all over again And then the Shi'ar The Brood The Starjammers Watch as Marvel's merry muta. L 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 experienceVolume two covers X Men history from issues 94 186 30 ISSUES THAN THE LAST VOLUME AND DURING A TIME than the last volume and during a time 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 montagePiskor 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 seamless Piskor s art is *it feels rushed and plots that are were complicated are reduced added too and made seamless Piskor s art is and very retro but lacks some of the strength of Cockrum and Byrne Further that becomes slightly obvious when Piskor s recoloring of Giant sized one is included in the package Further Piskor has to consolidate this covers Uncanny X men 94 186 and covers some key Claremont works like the Pheonix and Dark Pheonix saga Piskor does cover issues which have a 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 "attempt to make a singular and definitive continuity I would take the discontinuity of the whole and the developed in the original as my definitive so far Piskor s narrative of a consolidated X Men history stays strong as he dives into familiar territory for the modern comic fan even if some of the power and emotion from those original groundbreaking stories are inevitably lost.

Summary X Men Grand Design Second Genesis

N team and their adventures for the next 100 issues or so from Giant size X Men 1 to Uncanny X Men 186 Some of the classic stories are during this time period like the Dark Phoenix Saga and Days of Future Past which is curiously omitted This was during Chris Claremont and John Byrne s heyday and I would encourage those interested to actually go back and read all issues Although Claremont can definitely sound wordy for modern the 70 s and 80 s were the best time period for X Men comics They consistently knocked it out of the park Pisker s art is a bit frowny for my taste and I m definitely not a fan of the drab coloring Yes I know it s supposed to look like an old comic the oversized treasury edition is great I did think the Ed Piskor recolored version of Giant Size X Men was superfluous and just a way to drive up the "Cost Streamlines The Canon For Old Fans And Brings New "Streamlines the canon for old fans and brings new into some of the best ears 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 ou read this and enjoy it I would highly recommend any of the late 70 s80 s X men or the spinoffs that these stories are taken from Like reading a condensed "version of the early X Men Complete with semi crappy pulp style art It actually continues to work "of the early X Men Complete with semi crappy pulp style art It actually continues to work than I think it should Not sure how enjoyable it would be to those who this isn t a refresher It was definitely readable if not amazing While I liked but was sort of underwhelmed by X Men Grand Design Piskor s first volume about the original line up s formation and early ears I found his follow up companion piece Second Genesis much accessible and enjoyable This edition focuses on writer Chris Claremont s long running and legendary ears 1975 1991 at the title s helm and introduces those wonderfully diverse characters Storm Nightcrawler Colossus Wolverine and Kitty Shadowcat Pryde among others that now capably filled out the X ranks Honestly these folks just seemed interesting to meThis volume just seemed lively along with the reuisite X action and drama there was certainly humor this time and that made it a lot of fun to read It is again presented in the treasury edition format with the aged looking pages and artwork that is a throwback to the 70 s style 25This book stinks LiterallyI once lived downwind of a paper mil.
