PiercingMetal Thoughts: Back when these original stories were in the individual issues, I was a very regular reader of the “X-Men” titles and I still have most of these in the collection. I’m excited for these so I can add them to my bookshelves as opposed to rifling through long comic boxes to find them to peruse once again. What do you readers think of this new collected edition series. Chime in down below in the comments.
