X-Men: The Coming Of Bishop Collection

#1 Posted by Chane (539 posts) - - Show Bio

I've seen sources (eg. wikipedia, tplist) claim this contains Uncanny #282-#288 whilst it may contain elements, it certainly doesn't have the full issues based on the size.  Does anyone have details on what is actually in the tpb?

It's the first I've heard of this trade.  Any extra links or info you can give us?

  It was published in 1995?!  No wonder it ranges in price so much: $16.95 to $207.22!! 
 
It would be easier just to buy the original issues of Uncanny X-Men on eBay.

I already have a copy (which of just located in a long box, rather than the tpb shelf where I thought it was), it's just not clear what's in it :o) 
 
It's not very big - the afterword is on page 95 and the first comic page is on page 5. 
 
The credits say material originally published as 282,283,284,285,287,288 (so wikipedia was almost right) which is too much to fit in the space provided in there entirety. 
 
There are 4 chapters: Payback!, Bishops Crossing, Bishop to Kings 5, Time and Place 
There doesn't seem to be any artist credits in the reprinted pages, or story headers (the chapter titles are orange pages, with faded comic strip on them) 
 
I remember being disappointed when I finally tracked it down that it didn't have all the issues in it and it wasn't bigger. 
 
I was thinking about plugging my X-holes where trades don't cover as it'll be awhile until Essential gets there with the crossovers that 10 will have to do and was wondering if anyone knew exactly what was reprinted in this volume
