The Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past by Chris ClaremontIn 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 considering its low price. Ive been wanting to read this story for a couple decades and never got around to it. Was it worth the wait? Ill let you know in a bit.
The story itself is pretty cool. The future version of Kate Pride goes back in time to rally the X-Men against the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and save a Senators life. Cyclops is gone after the events of the Dark Phoenix Saga and Storm is leading the X-Men for the first time. Angel is back and the rest of the lineup is pretty much the standard Byrne-Claremont lineup.
The dystopian future was my favorite part of the story. I liked seeing Franklin Richards, Rachel Summers, and a wheelchair-bound Magneto, as well as both Wolverine and Colossus with white at the temples. Do comic characters never go gray in a pattern other than the Reed Richards look? Speaking of Reed Richards, the graveyard with all the superhero headstones in it really sold how bad the future had become after Robert Kellys death. As for the present day part of the story, its pretty much standard superhero fare for the time. I did like that they hinted about a connection between Mystique and Nightcrawler way back then.
One observation I had was that Wolverines healing factor wasnt so ridiculous in either branch of the story. In the present, hes brought to his knees by Pyros attack and, in the future, hes roasted and killed by a Sentinel. Wolverine goes through more crap than that in two or three issues of his current comic without missing a beat.
Claremont and Byrne raised the bar for other comics with their X-Men run. Byrnes art was at the head of the pack in its day and people still use what Claremont did as a model.
So, Was it worth the wait? Lets just say my 14 year old self would have enjoyed it a lot more than my 34 year old self. Its still definitely worth a read and was revolutionary for its time but its a little on the dated side.

October 29 is Bob Ross' birthday. The late painting instructor, famous for his storied, year run as the host of "The Joy of Painting," would have turned 73 years old in , were he the immortal personification of happiness born from a pristine canvas in with the sole purpose of teaching us mere amateurs how to wield a paintbrush still alive today. For those unfamiliar with his public television show -- for shame! He painted mountains and trees and streams, all the while dropping incredibly zen knowledge in his tingle-inducing tones. His episodes were equal parts art instruction and tranquil wisdom, perfect for the ASMR-obsessed amongst us. On this blessed day, we decided to round up some of Ross' most whimsical advice. Here are 50 quotes from his show that will make today feel like you're soaring above a billion little clouds and all your happy little tree friends are there to high-five you.

Before you can post or reply in these forums, please join our online community. It's easier said than done to say "just don't let it bother you". That seems to be the top piece of advice on the "I'm ugly" topic, and it's demeaning and hardly motivational. Because it does bother me, all the time. And I can't just switch that off. I'm losing confidence, because I think I'm ugly. I haven't had my first kiss, because I don't think anyone would want to.
