PSA- Uncanny X-Men Volume 1 (Claremont) appears to be in stock now on Forbidden Planet UK. £57 + £5.50 delivery but that delivery charge is swallowed up if you order multiple things at the same time.

I've ordered a copy and it says it's in stock and ready to be dispatched.

Just working through House of X/Power of X on MU. It is absolutely excellent and one of the best things I've read in ages (comic or otherwise). Up to #5 ar the monent, not sure how much of the run is available or where it goes afterwards.

I'm not sure how it's organised on MU but are you reading it in release order?

Yeah, following the reading order at the back of each episode.

Good, good. They keep those reading orders going forward but don't bother reading Fallen Angels.

Is Spider-Man: Life Story worth checking out then? I might have to give it a look.

My copy of the first Claremont Uncanny X-men omnibus has arrived. I was beginning to think that it didn't exist.

It's highly acclaimed. I should probably read it too, it's been on my shelf for weeks.

Saw on Twitter that Gillen and Ribic are on the new Eternals series out in November.

That does sound good but I thought Gillen was being lined up for a Mr Sinister book.

At least this won't be anywhere near as overbearingly smug as him writing Sinister.

It doesn’t go in depth on anything so there’s not really are strong compelling narrative but I was intrigued just by the idea of it and seeing Spiderman through the ages. Worth it for that alone.

I guess corona changed the contents of Dawn of X #7. Every site is claiming there are only four issues in it but my copy has six - two of which are Excalibur and there isn't any X-Force.
