Check out my guide to collecting X-Men comics as trade paperbacks! It's the best and most complete guide on the web to to filling in the gaps in your X-Men collection with TPBs.
 
I am an X-fan, indie singer-songwriter, >10years Philly blogger, comm professional, serial organizer, & narcissist. 
 
I've redeclared my love of comic books after a decade-and-a-half break. I love witty, adventurous, continuity-heavy comics, and I hate interminable crossovers, reboots, and relaunches. I think Grant Morrison is crap. One day I will figure out how to make my wife love comic books as much as she loves comic book movies.
