This is the first of four volumes that collect the entire mammoth story of the Age of Apocalypse.
The first volume is really not too great. However, needs to be read to get a grasp on what is going on in the rest of the volumes. What is not here is the lead up; what made the Age of Apocalypse even happen in the first place and Marvel, in their infinite wisdom have not made that available.
This is one of the last really good super crossovers done in comics. Basicly, a what-if story in continuity; this is what would have been if Charles Xavier, Professor X had died and not formed the X-men. There are some great (now considered some of the best in the industry) writers and artists both who worked on these great and crazy issues.
A must for all hard core fans of continuity laden superhero comic fans.
