I have been meaning to start the X-Men comics. But not sure where to start. I don't know if I want to start at the beginning.

Any ideas?

Hmm. You might miss some of the layers not being familiar with the characters ahead of time, but Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men is fantastic and should stand fairly well on it's own. It starts with Astonishing X-Men, Vol. 1: Gifted and is four trades total.

Some well loved more "classic" stand alone X-Men stories that might be good introductions include X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Thank you so much will try and get hold of X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills and X-Men: Days of Future Past and then start Astonishing X-Men! Can't wait :)

You're welcome. :) One thing to be aware of for the older stuff - while Claremont is one of the best X-Men writers ever his stuff is very different in style and extremely wordy by today's standards. Just something to keep in mind.
