    Better than Jim Lee? Todd McFarland? Ethan Van Scriver? John Romita? Really guys!

      I love frank quietly’s art, but his difficulty in keeping up with monthly books really shows in new x-men. There are some issues where his figure work is wildly inconsistent with other issues. Over-all, this was my second fav x-men run (claremont is always first).

      • Michael Carens-Nedelsky

        It’s telling that Marvel doesn’t think they’ve had a seminal x-men run in over 15 years! As mentioned below, Whedon/Cassady’s run is arguably worth including.

          Thank you for putting Paul Smith in the pantheon of great X-Men Artists!! I will say this, FOREVER, Paul Smith was the most underrated artist in the history of X-Men.

            Where they lost me was the secondary mutation nonsense.

              Frank Quitely isn't even in my favorite Top 50 artists list.....

                For a pair of creators who aren’t Marvel based, this is an amazingly generous video.
                Great run.
                Great tribute.

                  This series should have went for 50 more issues

                      I hated the art at first. But then I got used to it. There are still pages with terrible looking images of Wolverine for example. But overall the book is great. Jim Lee is still the best X-Men artist though. Why are Claremont and Lee's omnibuses out of print Marvel??? People like me are going to keep asking until you correct your mistake and reprint them.

                        This period was incredible. It was genuinely surprising to discover these new designs and focus on the characters! Real great history and amazing designs and art.

                          And that issue where Emma and Jeans goes inside xaviers mind, all the pages without almost no words, just genius graphic narrative!

                        I loved seeing those alternate designs for Emma. I'm gonna re-read this run and get geared up for "House Of X/Powers Of X!"

                          Have you noticed that this is the X-men video with more "social commentary"?? New X-men is the turning point for the new millenium, where everything gets more political than fun

                            Claremont's run was the BEST run on X-men. Period. Not another run compares, certainly this doesn't

                              This came out just as I was getting into reading comics, and while I dug it, I recall it being very controversial at the time. People hated the artwork, especially the way Quitely drew humans and Beast's redesign. Interesting to see a reappraisal. Maybe people always liked it? I just never saw anyone talking much about this run until recently.

                                I stopped collecting X-Men in the middle of this run, it was garbage.

                              Would love if you edited all the mini docs you've been doing on the X-Men into a single film at some point. These are fun to watch and would be cool to own on dvd or something

                                  I still get chills thinking about this run. "What is ....X-Men?". Indeed. Yes nothing has come close since this. This was the peak of superhero comic book medium.

                                    Yeah no Frank Quitely is up there with Rob Liefield as one of the biggest hacks in comic book artist history

                                      No, Quitely's work is awesome. Check out his stuff on "Jupiter's Legacy 2!" That dude is THE TRUTH!

                                    Was this a joke video? I was straight laughing the whole way wondering when it was going to end. This art and beauty should never be in one sentence again. The is the very reason why I didn’t want to read The New X-men. Could not stand the art.

                                      Is this magneto really better or worse than other depictions? Debatable, I mean Morrison's Magento(or SWIM) was possesed by the ghost of Bradley Nowell's inhaler iirc.

                                        LMAO You guys are over-selling the Frank Quitely bit: "Frank Quitely is quite possibly the Greatest Comic Book Artist Alive...and maybe of all time." Jesus.

                                        Not looking forward to Hickman's take in the slightest. His Avengers run shoehorned the characters into a story that didn't serve them (and complaining that Brian Mihcael Bendis Bendis didn't do anything with The Ilumanti, rather then understanding Bendis was adding toys to the toy box as well as telling his own story) and was filled with bare contempt for the medium - I'm kind of hoping as with Grant Morrison's run New X-Men (Emma Frost and Scott Summer's relationship) and Batman (Damien Wayne) , they'll be at least some interesting ideas for better writers to work with.

                                                New X-Men was awful. everyone was out of character; Wolverine walked around in leather pants, and it featured some of the worst art in the history of comics, especially the issues drawn by Igor Kordej. I like Morrison but he didn't get X-Men, and the art was mostly terrible.

                                                  Really didn't like the blobby look of this artwork. It put me off reading this series. Felt like it just had this creepy, hopeless, souless kind of vibe to me. Regardless of the storyline xmen always represented hope to me and this series just felt like there was none.
