We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:

Proposed Title:X-Men: Uncanny Origins
Collecting 6 Issues:Uncanny Origins # 1-3, 6, 8, 9.
Covers: (click to enlarge)
TPB Cover: Uncanny Origins #1

Uncanny Origins was a cool series from 1996. This collection would be one issue short of collecting half of the entire run, and collects all of the origins having to do with the X-Men. Personally, I wasn't a big fan of the cartoony art for this series, but I can be a sucker for any origin story, so I can totally overlook it to get this collection in my hands.

We would get the origins of Cyclops, Quicksilver, Archangel, Beast, Nightcrawler and Storm! For the cover, I'd go with Uncanny Origins #1.

Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.


Thanks for checking out "Would U Buy It!"

I was a fan of DC's Secret Origins title when Roy Thomas was writing some of the Golden-Age secret origins. I even picked up the trade paperback that focused on the Justice League - Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, The Flash and Martian Manhunter.

I bought most of the original, individual issues - even the Venom issue; and I can't stand Venom - so, I probably would pick up a copy of the trade paperback. I liked the art. It's very much all-ages, like Mike Parobeck; Christopher Jones and Terry Beatty.

So, yes, I would by an Uncanny Origins: X-Men Trade Paperback.

Hi, AirDave. I have the entire run of DC's Secret Origins, and most of the oneshots they did before and after that series - I love DC origins! I was disappointed that Uncanny Origins didn't last as long (or longer). Would still love to see this collection though. Thanks for the comment! (and for being first comment on my first WUBI, at that.) :)
