I liked the X-Men run by, I think, Joss Whedon.

Sounds like the events are not that great then......I’ll go with your other recommendations and see how I get on.

There are some good events. The Cosmic Marvel events and stuff written by Hickman comes to mind.

Solid end to the table setting but hardly a climatic issue

Did you miss the Cyclops/Jean/Wolverine threesome?


X-men #1 spoiler

I can’t believe this is now ‘canon’ :lol:

The first thing I checked on that floorplan was the sleeping arrangements.

Any recommendations for some Graphic Novels to read? I’m signed up to Marvel unlimited so don’t need any Marvel stuff. Through ComiXology I am reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I have picked up some Hellboy collections.

I would like some non-superhero stories preferably as I have that covered with all the above :lol:

If you haven't read the Transmetropolitan series, I'd highly recommend it.

Paper Girls recently finished its run and was mostly excellent, even if it ran out of steam by the end.

If I buy a kindle graphic novel on Amazon, is it also available to read in the ComiXology app?

Yes, I think you need to actively link your account first though.

When I log into ComiXology I use the Amazon logins, that should be the one right?

Some of the GN’s in my Wishlist are cheaper on Amazon as a kindle edition rather than on ComiXology’s website.

Reading Avengers Vs X-Men right now, are the X-Men reboot series that come after this event (Marvel NOW?) a good place to start with X-Men books? What are the best titles to read as I have added Uncanny X-Men and All New X-Men to my Marvel Unlimited library so far.

X-Men Grand Design and its two sequels summarise decades of X-Men stories.

Hickman's House of X/Powers of X is the beginning of the current new status quo. Is that on Marvel Unlimited?

I'll check out Grand Designs, I think Marvel Unlimited are 6 months behind current storylines so might not be on the service yet.

Astonishing X-Men by Whedon is also a good place as is New X-Men by Morrison.

Uncanny X-Force is also great.
