I have only read 1 X-Men comic in my life. It was the March 1995 Astonishing X-Men #1. Having never read X-Men or having any prior knowledge I was confused. I'd like to begin reading X-Men but don't know where to start, be it a graphic novel or comic book. I have seen all the movies, so I'm familiar with the most known characters. So if you choose the essential place to start reading X-Men, where would it be?
