    I don't think there are that many fans over there, to be honest. There's that guy who's a joke, but I can't think of many other people atm. Great statue, though.

So it ended up not bothering me since Cyke has seemed pretty close to a "villian" type character to me for a few years now.

    Anyway, just my 2 cents on the matter. It's, obviously, not everyone's.
    I don't really read Xmen, but now that I've read that you're right. Last Xmen book I read was schism, cyclops was a bit villainous there. Just seemed like a (poor) excuse to kickoff the event.

    Finished reading AvX and I'm torn, the last 7 or so issues are surprisingly really good. First issues aren't quite frankly, it's like two different books in one. Also not a fan of the VS stuff except the last issue which had some hilarious one page AvX stories.

    With all the binding issues it's a real pain to read the spreads, as a lot of small panels are smack in the middle of double page spreads and end up in the gutter.

    Don't think I'll be keeping this, Marvel better not be adopting this binding for future large hardcovers as its terrible.

    Gee I wonder who that could be?

    I don't mind Liefeld's art and I really enjoy that particular era of the x-universe.
    That's just the Pandemic F you've got talking, haven't they got a cure for that yet.

    There are a few - Secret Warriors and Ultimate Death of Spider-Man being the books that first spring to mind.

    Nice! It always cracks me up how SMALL Devil Dinosaur is and still called an omnibus. Funny stuff. There are many many OHCs larger than that book.

    This makes me VERY happy since I will be able to unload mine before too much longer.

    I want an opinion.

    I have the classic cover and I have been wanting to sell this for quite some time. Is anyone else of the belief that this will shoot up in value like X-men or Spiderman?

    $135 is awfully tempting, but I made the mistake of letting many of my others go wayyyy too soon.
    I would wait. Once it's "officially" OOP, everyone scrambles for it, and Ebay prices skyrocket. They then tend to stay there for a bit before coming down.

    I sold my X-Men SA 1 at around $125 back when, I think they went even as high as $175 at times, but I was happy with that since it wasn't a book I was ever going to read again. If you need the $ right now, I'd post it with reserve or high starting price (but I know you know what you're doing in that regard ) otherwise I'd recommend holding onto it for a little while longer.

    Also, think about this - a lot of folks get $ for Christmas, so perhaps more people will have disposable income as of 1/1/2013 and will be willing to bid higher on a collectible book then before Christmas. Good luck.

    That's the variant cover. I have the other OOP cover.

    That difference is apparently worth over $60 for some people.

    This is exactly how I felt. I suffered through he first few issues just because I knew it would change things in the Marvel universe but I hated every second of it. But... the later 2/3 of the event were actually really good and enjoyable. As soon as JRJR got off the art even the writing seemed to turn around and start being interesting and enjoyable. Personally, I felt the VS stuff was just filler.
    Marvel cosmic needs Jim Starlin back. As long as he is prohibited from using the word 'myriad' ever again.

    That's because Hickman took over,and he's awesome. (okay, turning fanboy mode back down to normal levels...)

    New Avengers is basically an event tie in book, but these are good suggestions.

    I'm sure it is part nostalgia. I really enjoy Inferno, X-tinction Agenda and the like. And I'm sure enough people have caught it to be at least an epidemic. I already have the MPEs and don't know yet if I will upgrade.

    Liefeld did create (or co-create) two of the more enduring new characters from that era: Deadpool and Cable. His personality doesn't bother me- I tend to avoid artist's "pseudo-celebrity" as it generally has nothing to do with the stories I read or how I enjoy them. I mean I would have to avoid Byrne, Miller, David and countless others if that were the case.

    Random: I am humored by how many people hate on Silvestri's 80's X-men work, when he is one of my favorites. I loved the scratchy/sketchy look.
