Sheesh, I can't believe I managed to completely forget to do X-Men by now!
So here's issue 10's cover, introducing Ka-Zar to the modern Marvel Universe, if I'm not mistaken! More after the jump!
Issue 20, with how Professor X became crippled!
Issue 30! I don't think I've ever read this story, but that's one awesome cover!
Issue 40, and the X-Men meet Frankenstein!
Issue 50 features this awesome Steranko cover, almost a duotone! Also note the first appearance of the X-Men logo (at least in this by the 10s) that, with minor modifications, would become most identified with the title!
Issue 60, Roy Thomas writing, Neal Adams drawing... and Sauron making his first appearance (or was it his second or third by this time?).
Issue 70, from when the book was reprint-only!
Issue 80, another reprint issue!
Issue 90... yes, another reprint issue! But that's the last for this title, because...
Issue 100, with the All-New, All-Different X-Men!
Issue 120, the debut of Alpha Flight?
Issue 130... Dazzler is unleashed (or is that inflicted?) on an unsuspecting world!
And with issue 150, we wind up this by the 10s! Why aren't I showing you the covers for issues 160, 170, etc? Because that was about the time I first started buying X-Men, and it's definitely out of the normal range of covers I feature here!
I hope you've enjoyed this long-awaited edition of By the 10s! Next time: Oh crap, you mean I haven't done all the romance comics yet???
