In a dystopian future, Kate Pryde is sent back in time, switching consciousness with the Kitty Pryde of 1980, to prevent the assassination of Senator Robert Kelly. Will she be able to prevent her timeline from happening or will the Senator be killed, setting off a shock wave of anti-mutant hysteria?

First off, there are a ton of X-Men trades called Days of Future Past. This one is the 48 pager.

I stumbled upon it in a used bookstore that I hate and figured I was winning one back for the good guys
I should have read this one before Rogue Storm (not that I regret it much) for better continuity of plot.

Anyway, this story about a future authoritarian world makes a compelling read. The whole of Earth is guarded by Sentinels, robots that were at first designed to guard and protect humans, until at some point the robots decided that the biggest threat to humanity is - surprise! - humans themselves. And the worst of humans? Mutants with superpowers. And so the robots decided to take over the gov

Esta saga la leí en una época en la que creía que todo lo que tenía el nombre "X-men" era alucinante, así que me gustó mucho. No digo que esta historia no sea alucinante, cuando la releí años después me volvió a gustar. Pero probablemente si la leyera sin conocimiento previo hoy en día, por el tipo de narrativa la llevaría más a las tres estrellitas que a las consagratorias cuatro. Eso sí, que eran mucho más interesantes estas historias que la mayoría de las actuales, no lo dudo. Además de tener ...more

Collects Uncanny X-Men (Volume 1) issues #141-142

If you're reading this, you probably already know this, but this 2-issue X-Men story is considered one of the X-Universe's all-time greats. This collection is unique in that in only collects the two issues that make up this story. In fact, the publishers of this collection went out of their way to keep the story self-contained, and even went so far as to remove the full final page of Issue #142 because it sets up future storylines that don't appea
I prefer this telling of the Days of Future Past story to the film -- especially the Sentinels, which I think are much more sinister as super robots than as DNA-charged mutants themselves -- but I understand why they made the changes they did.

This collection reprints the two original issues of Uncanny X-Men without colour correction or extra features, but it also only cost me give bucks.

A nice, quick blast from my comic-reading past.

Days of Future Past is a classic comic story in every sense. Originally published in Uncanny X-Men #s 141-142 back in 1980, this one has it all: Dystopian future, time travel, high stakes and tragedy. Solid story by Chris Claremont and great art by John Byrne. A little dated now but holds up very well. A lot of current entertainment has this book to thank, and I am irrationally excited for the upcoming movie...
Quinton Baran
A decent two issue compilation of a classic X-Men story - these classic X-Men stories are very good and the art for this book is also. I'm not especially a fan of time travel stories, but this one was a little above average (probably because it isn't clear what the consequences are of what occurs). I do enjoy stories involving the sentinels and also the brotherhood of evil mutants.
Jose Miguel
Reconocida mundialmente por ser una de las mejores historias sobre los X-men, Days of Future Past representa un antes y despues dentro del universo mutante, siendo Claremont quien una vez mas demuestra cómo se deben escribir comics de los mutantes.

El único pero que sigo poniéndole a los cómics es que no recordaba que siempre los escriben en mayúsculas y que los gráficos de los humanos casi siempre son feos. Las mujeres con arrugas y los hombre con canas al por mayor.
Trey Piepmeier
Another classic X-Men tale that I feel kind of lukewarm about. I really dislike the over-explanation in every panel. But I guess that's the way things were back then and a way to move the story fairly quickly without having to be clever. And I guess it's just Claremont.

It wasn't horrible, though (except Angel's costume). It was a fun story overall (as much fun as a post-apocalyptic story can be). I really liked John Byrne's illustrations. I also like the halftone dots (or whatever they're calle

Recopilatorio en inglés que aúna solamente los dos capítulos de la saga.
refreshing my memory, before I see the movie
I kept forgetting to write this, so this is probably not as of an insightful review as it could have been.

This is my second X-Men experience brought on completely by the upcoming movie. I definitely liked it better than The Wolverine. It was shorter but it was a lot more action packed. I can see the great potential in an awesome X-Men movie storyline here. The whole excessive internal narrative was a little annoying, but it helped to give some background information that me as a new-ish X-Men r
Quede con ganas de más!
Tenia que releer esto si no iba a morir en agonía :c

Es una historia mucho más sencilla de lo que esperaba. A pesar de ello puedo imaginarme las variaciones y una perfecta adaptación al cine. Esperemos que no nos fallen.
Loved the plot line and artwork
