Douglas WolkThe secret of the Claremont/Byrne X-Men was that it combined full-throttle adventure stories with wrist-to-forehead soap opera.

This got me all ready for the upcoming movie. An epic comic that should be on any x-men fan's shelf. It also included my personal favorite moments in marvel history, like wolverine meeting alpha flight and the famous cover from the first DOFP story.

I thought this would be a better read, but purchasing was a complete mistake compared to more recent comics. I'm sure this was ok in the 80s, but the action was very 'dont kill the bad guys' and one of the issues involved chasing down a beast who killed some campers, which didn't interest me in the slightest. There is also WAY too much text that isn't interesting, like a constant narrator explaining the obvious. I have no intention to read older comics again. I understand that comics had to start somewhere, but I have no desire to read the old ones when the new ones are so good.
