From the Ashes...

Advantages: Amazing artwork, brilliant storyline, and of course, Phoenix
Disadvantages: You'd have to know a bit about the history of the X-Men to understand

THE ULTIMATE COMIC BOOK CASH INVESTMENT

Advantages: Groovy, modern styling
Disadvantages: Would make the traditionalists cringe

One of the criticisms that many people might have of super hero comic books is that they are extremely old-fashioned. Batman, Spiderman and the like have been around since the 1950s or 60s, without changing all that much, and the whole super hero concept ...
