This Time, It’s Personal
I’ve spent the last few months acquiring numerous new-to-me X-books from the 1990s. Most of these are from around 1996-1998, which covers everything from Joe Casey’s Cable to forgotten cash-grabs like the Beast miniseries. My new goal for the site is to spend one month on the X-books, then alternate it with a month dedicated to another series or franchise (the most recent reviews should give you an idea of what’s ahead). There is a staggering amount of mid-90s X-material I’ve never read, or didn’t even know existed, so I shouldn’t run out of material for a while. For better or worse, spending two years reviewing the ‘90s X-family left me with a desire to properly finish the job, so that’s my plan for the foreseeable future. And even if I finish all of this material, I still haven’t read most of the Wolverine serials in Marvel Comics Presents, or the various mutant guest appearances from throughout the ‘90s. But you guys wouldn’t want me to go that far, would you?
