In the world of the X-Men, DAYS OF FUTURE PAST has been considered as the second greatest & iconic X-Men story ever told [the first being the DARK PHOENIX SAGA by the same creative duo CHRIS CLAREMONT & JOHN BYRNE]. Quite possibly the prototype of the Arnold Schwarzenegger sy-fy movie Terminator, where the Sentinel robots have taken over the world & enslaved/eliminated most of the mutants and the best way to prevent a dark future is travel back in time to prevent a political assassination. If not for this graphic novel we would not have the 2014 film, which is also good but with a couple of differences from the original source material.
I actually wanted one the earliest trade paperbacks instead of the modern version because I only wanted the original two issues (#141 & 142) that make the story and no bonus material (just like how I wanted to obtain the 1997 trade paperback of SUPERMAN: WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE MAN OF TOMORROW? by ALAN MOORE). Current trade paperbacks have...
I bought this for my friend because he was robbed and the nerdy burglar decided to steal a bunch of his comic books and his suspenders. Somewhere out there there is a thief wearing suspenders and trying to pick up chicks at the laser tag joint by telling them they remind him of The Phoenix.
Much of the dark doings in the X-Men books these past thirty years go back to that infamous two-issue arc way back in 1980. "Days of Future Past" was only a few issues removed from the tragic "Dark Phoenix" saga, so you can make a pretty solid case for this stretch of stories as writer Chris Claremont cresting to his absolute peak. His exceptional artist and co-plotter John Byrne, well, his heyday would span plenty of years beyond Claremont's. For those trying to unearth back issues of this classic adventure, you can find it in the trade paperback X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, which collects issues #138-143 as well as X-MEN ANNUAL #4. For X-Men fans, this is a must get.
The trade opens with Jean Grey's friends and family attending her burial and a grief-stricken Cyclops reminiscing about Jean. Along the way, he manages to summarize the entire X-Men run up to that point. Cyclops' abrupt leave of absence would herald Ororo's assuming the leadership role.
