A principal vantagem desse formato sobre as omnibus Uncanny X-Men é que aqui entra somente o que interessa, as sagas! E também estão compiladas nele as outras revistas mutantes (X-Fator, Wolverine, Novos Mutantes, X-force, Geração X, Deadpool, etc.) te livrando do trabalho de ir atrás das outras e organizar a leitura.
Much of the art of the book is. We got JRJR, Joe Mad, Andy Kubert, Steve Epting, and many others. Amanda Conner and Tony Daniel before they were big names also have an issue which is interesting to see earlier styles from.
The early Uncanny issues kind of drag on. Especially the two issues of Gambit and Storm (312-313). Should have just been one. The Final Sanction (Wolverine 85& Cable16) portion I thought was boring as an 8 year old, and they still are. I liked Larry Hama in GIJoe and earlier Wolverine issues, but here it's as if he struggled to come up with enough material to give a good pace. He must have also been trying to tie into the Cyclops and Phoenix comic that is not part of this book but their Wedding book.
I never had the Excalibur issues, so the Life Signs portion and prelude were a treat and I appreciate them more now. Fills in a lot of the story I've always been missing. Having been able to read more New Mutants and the X-Tinction Agenda helped understand the Douglock situation more. I wonder why issue 81 is not included, not sure what was in it, but just left a weird numerical gap.
I feel more issues should have been included because there are constant editorial captions that refer you to Uncanny issue 311 or 314, 315 and many others. I understand some issues are part of other stories, such as Fatal Attractions and the Wedding of Cyclops and Jean Grey which both happened very close to this event. But since these issues had to deal with Sabretooth or Emma Frost they seem relevant to this story and deserve more than a one page caption. Especially since we were given a lot of set up of the Ice Man/Emma Frost situation that came up a few more times over the years and would have featured in those issues.
They include the poster like foldouts from the original comics, but they put them on a single vertical page and it is hard to read. I think they were originally three to four pages. Should have been condensed to two pages not one in this collection. If you want to save space, could have put two in a horizontal layout across a two page spread. They are pretty interesting to fans so it's a bit of a disservice to us.
Overall, very 90s and X-Men so a big cast and constant changes and a lot of events while building up the next event. Also, not really about the big name X-Men, but the third string (Banshee, Rahne, Cannonball etc) and Emma Frost when she wasn't a core member, the other teams, and the next generation.
