I was recently gifted this trade of X-Men comics, with stories by Chris Claremont, Paul Smith, and Bob Wiacek. I found the page included interesting, as Wolverine takes the opposite position regarding children being among the ranks of the X-Men that he does in the recent X-Men:Schism series. At the time of these stories, Professor Xavier has decided to boot Kitty Pryde from the X-Men and put her in the younger New Mutants. Wolverine sounds a lot like Cyclops did in Schism, it would be interesting to see when the change in character began to develop in Wolvie.

The Marvel stuff (minus a lot of Punisher) that I got at Baltimore Comic con, Punisher Max was great, that book is like drugs to me, Daredevil #2 was also spectacular, A Ghost Rider comic I had to get just based on the cover, an interesting compilation of Frank Miller/Klaus Jansen Daredevil and Punisher stories, Dave Cockrum in a 4-part Nightcrawler series annnd a bunch of John Byrne Alpha Flight.

A pinup by Dave Cockrum (who did some of my favorite X-men art of all time) in Classic X-men #8…this is probably my favorite X-men roster (maybe add Shadowcat and Dazzler).
