This brings the price down from £55.99 to just £33.59.
At 640 pages, the book collects Generation X #26-31, X-Force #67-70, X-Men #65-70, Uncanny X-Men #346, Wolverine #115-118, Cable #45-47 and X-Man #30, with a cover by Francis Leinil Yu. Writers include Scott Lobdell, Steve Seagle and Terry Kavanagh, with artists like Joe Bennett, Carlos Pacheco and Salvador Larroca.
Here’s the blurb for the 1990s tale:
A rogue faction of the U.S. government, backed by powerful international forces and led by the man known only as Bastion, is about to launch a massive strike against the X-Men with one goal: the extermination of the entire mutant race. With Jubilee and Professor X captives, the X-Mansion overrun and Prime Sentinels darkening the skies, the X-Men, X-Force and Generation X must fight a war on many fronts. And it’s a war they’re losing. This is the X-Men’s darkest hour.
I’m really excited by this release; its reprint in the UK line, Essential X-Men, was being published as I was just getting into X-Men comics, right after the Onslaught saga.
Forbiddenplanet.com hasn’t got the book listed yet, but Amazon.co.uk has it at a pre-order price of £35.61.
It’s a big tome, but nobody seems to know if it’s officially an omnibus or just a Hardcover collection like The Invincible Iron Man books. Either way, it’s worth letting you know about it!
