X marks the spot

Today is a red letter day for me, it's exactly one month since I bought a single comic. Now I know I sound like some alcoholic in a cliché US sitcom who's just reached step 3 in stepping-to-get-sober programme, but for the last three years I have bought comics like a madman, over 12.000 comics in a little over 3 years is not the sign of a well balanced individual.

So on Xmas eve 2004 I decided to take a little break and actually read the damn things, I did, it was fun, but now I'm back...so tonight I'll go cruising on eBay with my new sights set on getting a copy of Uncanny X-men #94.

Why this title to restart ? Well I'm (a trifle to) fond of symbolism, and getting this issue would also mark an ending next to a beginning as this is the last Uncanny X-men (yes I know they were still called The X-men at the time) I need to get #94 till #150 complete.

Let's hope getting back in the game, or falling off the wagon, however you want to call it, won't give me splitting headache like poor old Xavier in the good old days

I'm getting confused with all these anonymous guys.... I thought Greggy and Red Hook were the only ones sharing the "anonymous user' moniker, but it seems a third player has entered the arena...Why people want to share *anything* with Greggy is beyond me, but then again, I don't know how to blow a goat either...so there you go

And it feels SOOO nice to be called NOOBS (whatever that may be :p )

I am not really into Xmen except (Dark) Phoenix and Brood and like Vampirella and Kabuki way more...

So I am not kinda intrested in buying the damn comic so I know what makes it special for my friend Chromium.

I am a modern collector and not a goldenage-collector so be gentle with me :)

OR you could say: try google and then I would have come up with:

"Presenting the first ongoing appearance of the NEW X-MEN "

aaa so the very first real team with Beast, Cyclops and Marvel Girl I presume...ok...sounds cool enough...

on the other hand...what where the other 93 comics about then?

you're such a NOOB Richard :)

the first 66 X-men were the classic team (Iceman, Beast, Cyclops, Marvel-chick and Angel)

Issues 67-93 were reprints of the first 66 issues.

GS#1 was the introduction of the new team

Issue #94 was the follow up of GS#1 and the beginning of the new team in the series (Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler etc...)

Thanks for the explanation Allan...I hope I can remember it as some kinda comictrivia I need to remember :)
