Thanks for using my banner! I hope everyone likes it. Those X-Men and Spider-Man corner boxes from the 90s are some of my favorites and were what started my fascination with Marvel corner boxes.

I use Amazon Smile too \:\) Anyway, nope, I won't be getting them. I've never seen the appeal of anthology type collections where they just collect an issue or two from a comic out of context and with no over arching story. Aside from currently running titles, when I read comics I like to read as much of the whole story as I can.

I did just order two X-Men tpbs with issues that came out in the late 90s though \:\) I got X-Men Gold Vol. 0: Homecoming and X-Men Blue Vol. 0: Reunion. They collect the X-Men comics that came in the wake of the Trial of Gambit and Operation: Zero Tolerance, where the X-Men are a bit shaken up and also gain the new members, Marrow, Maggott and Cecilia Reyes. This era and the one that followed with the long lasting and stable team made up of Storm, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Kitty, Rogue, Gambit, and Marrow, are among my favorite X-Men stories of all time. I can't wait to read them again. I love trade paperbacks so much. It's so much better having a physical copy in my hands and it is way less of a hassle than having to dig up and unbag the individual issues(and risk messing them up as well).

    I already bought the 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s but I'm undecided about the 80s and 90s. I absolutely won't be buying any later books.

The 40s and 50s ones would probably be the only books like this that might tempt me since I have read almost no Marvel comics from those decades. Did you enjoy them?

Oh, and why aren't you interested in any potential 2000s or 2010s collections?
