This is a blog for reviewing X-Men comics from the beginning, starting with X-Men #1 from September 1963. This will include spin-offs, as well. I’ll also be including weekly reviews of all the X-Men comics that come out each week. Additionally, Fridays will be reviews of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

    Thanks for commenting on my reviews; I appreciate your reviews, and in fact it seems like we’re starting from the same place. Which is awesome. I am not as “into” X-Men as you, but I enjoy your knowledge of ST:TNG. You have a background-knowledge that I lack, and that I am purposefully trying to ignore in my reviews. It’s enlightening. Thanks!

  2. Heya! I didn’t see a place to just send you a straight up message, but I wanted to let you know that I nominated your blog for a Sunshine Award. Don’t feel obligated to continue the chain if it doesn’t work for you, but I just wanted to let you know I gave you a shout out.

  3. This is a truly fascinating site.

    Hello, I need your help finding the needle in a haystack. No one has been able to help me find this issue, but I admit, I do not have many details. This is the first time finding you, so let me know if you are interested and I will provide the few details I have. I am willing to compensate your time and effort. I will wait for your reply. Thank you. Jason.

    • I can give it a try, at least.

        Thank you. What I am searching for is the mag the shows floating doorways in Xavier’s mind. All different types of doors, on different of ledges. (bricks, rock, cloud perhaps) It had to be in the early 2000’s to possibly 2004, when I was still collecting, but I suppose I could have picked up a mag at a later date. I believe he was showing someone how he safeguards the world from his anger, obsessions, nightmares (eradicating mankind because of one) and other emotions. He could have been giving someone a “tour” of his mind, explaining the purpose of the doorways. It could have been Jean Grey and for some reason, Emma Frost comes to mind, and they could have been utilizing Cerebro to do so. I have been searching for this for half a year, visiting Comic shops, calling (even Marvel) and from what I gathered, I do not think it was a part of the Onslaught saga or the Shadow King, Farouk battle, but anything is possible. That is what I remember, but it was so long ago, it could have been that Xavier was “building” doorways for Wolverine or Hulk to help them contain the rage, but I do not think so, just a mention. I need to find these panels, and as I mention, if successful, we can discuss compensation. I Thank you, more than I can in words. Jason

      • That is a tough one. I know there was an issue of Wolverine where Xavier and Logan went into Logan’s mind, and Logan started exploring different doors there. But the doors weren’t floating, they were in a psychic re-creation of the Mansion.

        If I can come up with anything closer to what you describe, I’ll let you know.

    Yeah, I agree I am still searching as well. Thank you for your efforts.

    Update, I reached out to Chris Claremont, and hoping he will respond.
