Marvel has finally released the solicitation for the 3rd UNCANNY X-MEN OMNIBUS. Check out the sweet variant cover by Jerome Opena! Very exciting.... However, the contents are irritating once again. Instead of collecting just Uncanny X-Men issues (and annuals), this edition has some UXM issues (#154-175, an Annual) AND then the following:

* 'God Loves, Man Kills' graphic novel
* 'Wolverine' mini-series (by Claremont & Frank Miller)
* 'Magik' mini-series

Now, while most of those stories are great, I already have them in hardcover form. I'd much rather have this omnibus chock full of just UNCANNY X-MEN issues like Volume 1 did.

Omnibus Vol 1 had 38 issues of Uncanny X-Men, plus an annual.
Omnibus Vol 2 had 21 issues of Uncanny X-Men, an annual, plus 10 other comics.

It was my understanding, based on the title of the book, that this is supposed to be an OMNIBUS of UNCANNY X-MEN, not "THE CHRONOLOGICAL X-MEN".

At this point in the X-Men publication history, more X-Men related comics were being released. Will the next omnibus edition have the Beast, Iceman, Nightcrawler, Wolverine & Kitty Pryde, Asgardian Wars, X-Men vs Avengers, X-Men vs Fantastic Four mini-series, etc?

Just give us the UNCANNY X-MEN issues in the UNCANNY X-MEN Omnibus, please.


(maybe I'll just have my 'Classic X-Men' bound instead)
