On Sunday, I decided to share some of my favorite comics.
Uncanny X-Men #177 was the first issue of X-Men I owned. The cover grabbed me and I had to get the book just to see what happened next.
Uncanny X-Men #177 was the first issue of X-Men I owned. As cool as the cover was, the first 3 pages really grabbed me when Mystique killed Wolverine. I was hooked and read the X-Men for several years after that. I even went back and picked up older issues to see what I had missed. And brother, had I missed a lot.
There was some great reading in this era.
I found these scans while surfing The Marvel Comics of The 1980's Tumblr. You should check it out. A nice flashback.
