Pretty basic question here that Im sure has been answered multiple times but I've tried researching this on google etc and have no idea where to begin reading the X-men comics, its so confusing. Could someone clarify pls?
To be more clear I have tried to read Uncanny X-men #94 onwards but I find them quite dull to be honest (after several issues). I read in many places that I should read the Dark Phoenix Saga so I guess thats where Ill go next.
The more modern comics seem much more interesting but I don't really get any of the back stories and references so... Is there a list somewhere of the essential story arcs (preferably the most interesting ones) for the Uncanny X-men in chronological order? As well as how they tie in with other major titles maybe (it seems like there are dozens)? So I can skip pointless one off issues that go nowhere
Any help is appreciated.
