    I found this "Days of The Future Past" arc in bargain sales years ago, before the movie version. Even in those age, we already heard something about near future theme where Sentinels almost annihilate all mutants. It was so cheap and in mint condition, so I didn't think long to buy it. The art was as expected for 1980s Marvel's comic books. The basic idea was similar as in movie version.

    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 considering it's low price. I've been wanting to read this story for a couple decades and never got around to it. Was it worth the wait? I'll 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 Senator's 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 Kelly's death. As for the present day part of the story, it's 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 Wolverine's healing factor wasn't so ridiculous in either branch of the story. In the present, he's brought to his knees by Pyro's attack and, in the future, he's 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. Byrne's 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? Let's just say my 14 year old self would have enjoyed it a lot more than my 34 year old self. It's still definitely worth a read and was revolutionary for its time but it's a little on the dated side.

    A little dated, but worth the read for my X-Men reading purposes.

    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 the worst of humans? Mutants with superpowers. And so the robots decided to take over the governments and 'babysit' the world's citizens under their rigid laws. Mutants are captured and/or destroyed. Those who escape live in disguise on the outer fringes of human habitation. This story starts many years after the rise of the Sentinels. The start of the comic book is a little depressing because some of my favorite X-Men have apparently died at the hands of the Sentinels, leaving only a few to hatch a plan to save the planet... the rest, you should read for yourself. Thumbs up for the good story line and beautiful artwork. Why can't the newer comic books be as good as the older ones? *sigh*

    I loved re-reading this classic Marvel story arc. Chris Claremont made the successful jump into alternate timelines and muddy continuum with this story. Although X-men timelines became a mess later, this was well done and super fun. This is the original two issue story that inspired the movie with the same name. The events here had far reaching impact on decades of X-men titles. Anyone who claims to be a fan of the X-men or Marvel comics really should give this 47 page story a read!

I first read this book as a pre-teen shortly after seeing the 1990's X-Men animated series do an adaptation of this comic. The cartoon and the comic have very little in common. I actually prefer the animated adaptation to this story. I believe that this story is well-told, but it is hard to judge if it should be considered one of the greatest Marvel stories of all time. I think you could debate this from both sides, so I'll side with those that believe it is one of the greatest because it was ahead of its time.

    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.

    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.

    Finally got the chance to read this classic tale of time travel and war on mutantkind. Refreshing to read an epic tale that lasts for a couple of issues as opposed to today's multi-tilte crossovers. The only other X-Men team story I've read by Chris Claremont is "God Loves, Man Kills" which I actually enjoyed more than this, but both have enticed me to seek out more. If you enjoyed the movie, you should definitely read the original source material. Finally got the chance to read this classic tale of time travel and war on mutantkind.

    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...

    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.

    It's so strange that such an important story in the X-Men mythos is only 2 issues long. Claremont really did know how to hit stories hard and fast, while laying groundwork for the next one. If it weren't for some of the cheesy narration, and some grammatical errors, I'd easily give it five stars. It's so strange that such an important story in the X-Men mythos is only 2 issues long.

    Ήταν το 2014 όταν κυκλοφόρησε η ταινία X-Men: Days of Future Past, μια ταινία που ακόμα και σήμερα θεωρείται από τις καλύτερες(αν όχι η καλύτερη) στην σειρά ταινιών με τους μεταλλαγμένους σούπερ ήρωες της Marvel, και η οποία τους τοποθέτησε σε ένα μετα-αποκαλυπτικό και δυστοπικό μέλλον. Προσωπικά οι X-Men ήταν από ανέκαθεν από τους αγαπημένους μου κόμικ ήρωες. Έτσι όταν οι X-Men συναντήθηκαν με την δυστοπία στην μεγάλη οθόνη δεν μπορούσα παρά να ενθουσιαστώ από αυτό το γεγονός.

Προσωπικά οι X-Men ήταν από ανέκαθεν από τους αγαπημένους μου κόμικ ήρωες. Έτσι όταν οι X-Men συναντήθηκαν με την δυστοπία στην μεγάλη οθόνη δεν μπορούσα παρά να ενθουσιαστώ από αυτό το γεγονός. Τώρα, χρόνια μετά την κυκλοφορία της ταινίας, αποφάσισα να διαβάσω το αρχικό υλικό επάνω στο οποίο πάτησε το κινηματογραφικό σενάριο. Για όσους δεν το γνωρίζουν, το Days of Future Past δεν αποτελεί κάποια μίνι σειρά κόμικ ή κάποιο ξεχωριστό event graphic novel, αλλά η ιστορία έλαβε μέρος στα τεύχη #141 και #142 της σειράς The Uncanny X-Men. Η συγκεκριμένη graphic novel έκδοση περιλαμβάνει αυτά τα δύο τεύχη μόνο(υπάρχουν και άλλες πιο σύγχρονες εκδόσεις που φέρουν μαζί και κάποιους ακόμα τίτλους από την συνολική σειρά πριν και μετά από αυτά τα δύο τεύχη), αλλά αυτό δεν με εμπόδισε από το να απολαύσω την ιστορία η οποία έχει αρχή, μέση και τέλος(ένα διαφορετικό και πιο ανοιχτό τέλος από ότι εκείνο της ταινίας). Σε σχέση με την ταινία, αν και η βασική ιδέα είναι η ίδια, οι δύο εκδοχές της ιστορίας έχουν διαφορές. Για παράδειγμα στους χαρακτήρες που βλέπουμε να συμμετέχουν στην ιστορία αλλά και στον χαρακτήρα που κάνει την μετάβαση από το μέλλον στο παρελθόν(στην ταινία ο Wolverine στα κόμικ η Kate/Kitty Pryde). Χωρίς να μπω σε παραπάνω λεπτομέρειες, θα κλείσω λέγοντας πως σε οποιαδήποτε μορφή της η συγκεκριμένη ιστορία είναι αρκετά δυνατή έχοντας πολλές κοινωνικές αναφορές κυρίως σχετικά με την διαφορετικότητα και τον φόβο των ανθρώπων ως προς το διαφορετικό σε οποιαδήποτε μορφή του(κάτι που ισχύει έτσι κι αλλιώς στον πυρήνα όλων των ιστοριών του σύμπαντος των X-Men).

    5/10 So you’re telling me that Kitty was supposed to be the protagonist of Days of Future Past? And the movie not only replaced her with Logan but almost cut her out of the movie entirely?? Other than me being mad about that I will say I think Days of Future Past, while an important and widely revered X-Men comic, is honestly just average to me. I feel like they could’ve done a lot more than with the concept.

    This is a great example of how a great story doesn't have to be a long one. This tale is a mere two issues, yet it has been undoubtedly impactful, not only on the X-Men, but on the greater Marvel Universe. The concepts introduced and touched on here are nothing less than epic. The art is energetic with some images, like the cover of the first part, that are iconic.

    Spectacular storytelling - one of the ultimate tales in comics history. Believe the hype. John Byrne's art is basically just right, and he created some iconic imagery.

    La obra que usaron y en la que se basaron para la película: X-men días de futuro pasado. Y aunque me sorprendió lo corta que fue, estuvo bastante entretenida con las menos de 50 páginas que tuvo.

    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.

This seems like a good reproduction.

    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.

    I don't have this edition, but I can't find mine and I really wanted DOFP in my library. What a great story. I can't believe this was so short? I remember rereading it so many times as a kid and in my head it was some sort of huge epic. It felt longer than [insert random Marvel cross-over here], proof that pacing and good storytelling are time-altering magic.

    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.
