In 1986, Marvel launched Classic X-Men, a series that reprinted the "All-New, All-Different X-Men" era -- with a twist! All-new backup stories fleshed out the 1970s tales and delved deeper into the characters' lives, and new story pages were even inserted into the reprints, expanding on key moments and sowing the seeds for future storylines! Now, all this newly created material has been collected together, complete with comparisons and text pieces explaining what was changed, what was added, and why!

Chris Claremont himself explains how all this came to be, in his introduction to this new collection. It was a chance to go back and improve and expand what he'd first written, and he and the artists embraced the idea and had fun with it. The full run of this title was 45 issues, so we expect volume 2 to wrap up the complete series.

John Bolton provides back-up stories in every one of these issues, and Art Adams provides new covers for every issue except two.

Highlights of these issues include a Sabertooth appearance, the first origin of Magneto in a back-up story. The second volume with have a Wolverine origin in one of the new backup stories, a new story by Jim Lee.

Friendships are forged, allies are mourned and lives are transformed in these rare tales that dance between the raindrops of some of the most revered X-Men comics of all time! It's the perfect companion piece to your Uncanny X-Men collection!
