Read full description of the books:
Like the previous omnibus, it's very much a mixed bag. I struggled to make it through this one probably because it's starts off right in the middle of Roy Thomas/Werner Roth's run. Lots of third rate villains, crossover guest appearances from more successful comics, and repeating returns of villains from early in the X-Men run as well as throw-away villains from other Marvel comics.
Sure, eventually Doom Patrol co-creator Arnold Drake comes eventually and makes X-Men more enjoyable to read. In contrast, Roy Thomas' previous writing/scripting was way too cluttered with unnecessary narration boxes, speech bubbles, and thought bubbles.
And, of course, Neal Adam's efforts for the X-Men is definitely appealing and a high mark for the book for the few issues he was able to be a part of.
Of course, the last half of this book are the only parts really worth reading if you're interested in reading this silver age stuff at all. It isn't until All-New Giant Sized X-Men when the X-Men finally gets some direction to go.
Like the first omnibus, I only recommend it for hardcore X-Men fans or collectors.
