Did you collect X-men comics in the 80's and/or 90's?

Why do you think there was an explosion of popularity and variety of X-related titles at this time?

Looking back do you still love these issues or not so much? If not, what time period of X-men comics do you prefer?


Yea, the best X-Men comics were in the late seventies. I think Chris Claremont and John Byrne both suffered from a kind of George Lucas syndrome. (That's when a creator has created good works in the past but seems unable to realize that not everything coming out of his head is now not gold.) I got over Claremont first, but still enjoying a lot of Byrne. (like his FF and Alpha Flight)

Along with 80's Claremonts long-windedness, sometimes self righteousness, preachyness, and repetitiveness, (how many different ways can you say bigotry is bad?) I was enjoying Claremont less and less.

But back when they were each working to prove themselves good creators, they came out together with gold.
