Yes. The only DC is read is the old horror/mystery ones, but those aren't really related to any Comic canon. My main interest is the era from when I got into it, so 1993-2000 basically.

The old horror/mystery ones are good for sure.

Reading House of Secrets got me into Swamp Thing which was good. Plus it had Bernie Wrightson art.

Took years to get this. I missed the original run because at the time I wasn't sure if they would continue the main Uncanny X-Men run, or move to just story arcs. Unable to afford both, I gambled that they would resume the main line. They did (years later) but not before I let the first printing go. The after market pushed it up to $300, so I waited. Other reprints started to appear, so I stayed patient and eventually it did come back. However, it was backordered immediately upon release. I gave up and went to Ebay, which had finally returned to the sub-cover price.

For those who grew up with the X-men animated series in the '90s, the packaging for this upcoming 1/6 Wolverine figure by Mondo will make you giggle:

Is that the scene where he’s looking at the picture of Jean & Scott?

I do get tired of all these crowd-funding campaigns. Admittedly, there are some brilliant ideas and products being produced (like HasLab stuff), but the 8-month to year-long waits are wearing thin, especially since the target ship dates are always missed. I've never been all that patient.

That said, the last Marvel Made crowd-funding campaign is awesome and recently shipped:

The Chris Claremont X-men Paragon collection is awesome since the main faux leather wrapped book contains a hand-written X-men quote by the man himself. Very cool. It came with a whole bunch of other stuff (including a COA limiting the production to 2,180), but it was the signature and hand-written quote that sold me:

Yep, sure did. Still awaiting the Sentinel as well, which should hopefully ship sometime this fall.

Were all the hand-written quotes the same? If not, what was yours?

I haven’t opened the shrink wrap on my copy yet so not sure which quote I got, but there are 4 quotes:

I’m the best at what I do
Bub, you just signed your death warrant
Welcome to the X-men - hope you survive the experience
Professor X is a jerk
