Last weekend I sat down and read a bunch of X-Men comics from the Essential X men volume 1 collection. It was pretty nostalgic for me even though these comics were way before my time as a kid(I mostly read X-Men comics from the 90's, these were from the 70's) but I was surprised by how incredibly boring they were.
Perhaps, as I have grown older I have simply lost my appreciation for mindless action and super heroics. Or, perhaps, they were just particularly boring comics. I don't know.
