This is a tough task, I am aware as I have started like 2 years ago and am currently at about 1995. The beginning was quicker because there weren't as many different X-Men related comics, just the one really. However, with the help of some dude on some forum who posted every single issue from all X-Men related comics in order, I am on my way.
In this thread I will update with screen shots of interesting/funny/important moments as I read. I will do this for two reasons, 1) it might be fun for y'all to reminisce or maybe even see things you didn't read from back in the day. Y'all can comment on whatever you find interesting and what-not. 2) it will help me stay on point in remembering what's going on in each comic as I might have to take some days off with work and all.
