so i have been thinking about getting into Uncanny X-Men for a while now, but I don't really know where to jump in. the series is like 3 decades old at this point or something so i cant really go back and read all of it, but i am will to read a couple hundred issues to catch-up. any suggestions on where to start from??
Starting to read Uncanny X-Men
That's a hard one... There are so many X-Men titles, and they're all tied together with many different story lines. So, where to jump in depends on what other X-Men titles you're reading... But, Off the top of my head, I'm thinking around issue 460... That is before M-day, the Vulcan war, Messiah complex, Necrosha, Nation X, and Generation Hope. I 'think' if you start around 460 you'll be able to follow the important stories of the last 5 to 7 years or so...
I think Pinchworm is right... I checked it out today because someone asked this on another thread... Uncanny X-Men 444 is a good place to start.. It's right after a major event (Xorn) and has a lot of the X-Men back together... I also recommend that you read New X-Men vol 2 which started about the same time... It has only 46 issues and then it becomes X-Men Legacy #208...
i started at the extremist story line, but stopped at issue #499 becasue their were so many X-titles i felt like their was too much going on but got a lend of some of my friends stuff and now i'm catching up, recently picked up lovelorn and probably get sisterhood in the next day or two
