Chris Claremont tho

X-Men-Group1Chris Claremont wrote a crazy soap opera funnybook for just shy of 20 years. Reading it as a kid, it defined my worldview.

This New York Magazine article from back in 2000 provides a nice crash course in the dynamic, exciting, and ever-melodramatic Marvel comic, the Uncanny X-Men.

“X-Men,” says Claremont, “has always been about finding your place in a society that doesn’t want you.”
