Following the recent release of the X-Men The Animated Series The Adaptations Omnibus comes another way for those who came of age in the mid-’90s to experience some retro mutant nostalgia.
X-Men: The Animated Series Further Adventures trade paperback collection contains the follow up to the first adaptation series with even more adventures geared towards younger readers of the day in the same animated art style.
The graphic novel contains the entire Adventures of the X-Men series (12 issues) from 1996, and the earlier back-up stories from 1994’s Spider-Man Magazine (#1-13), Spider-Man Magazine Special #1-2, and Adventures of Spider-Man #3.
The stories inspired by the animated series and original comic source material are written by Ralph Macchio, Nel Yomtov, Kelly Corvese, and Robert Loring Flemind with art by Ben Herrera, Mike S. Miller, Andy Kuhn, Derec Aucoin, Yancey Labat, Alex Saviuk, Don Heck, and Artie Ruiz.
The original series was also priced lower than standard comics of the era (99 cents) to make them more appealing to parents and their X-Men adoring kids. Marvel also released a double-issue Flip Book comic that retailed for $1.99 that contained an Adventures of X-Men issue and an issue of Adventures of Spider-Man the same month that each individual issue was on sale.
X-Men: The Animated Series Further Adventures trade paperback will go on sale at your favorite comic shop on March 1 with a suggested retail price of $39.99.
