In addition to the main reprints of Uncanny X-Men #132-153, annual #4 (after #138) & 5 (after #150) it peppers in Avengers Annual #10 (after #149) and Marvel Fanfare #1-4 (after Annual #5 and before #151).

All 3 stories (Phoenix, Iceman, and Nightcrawler) reprinted (in original black-and-white) along with the cover and the 3 X-Men Data Log pages.
Note for the picky: These do not appear to be from original artwork, but "remastered" scans of the magazine. Unfortunately, whoever was doing the adjustments to the artwork boosted the contrast a bit too much. Subtle shades of gray in some of the graphite shading and ink washes are faded out. Nothing earth-shattering, but a fact none-the-less.
- Phoenix: The Untold Story #1

Pros: Collection of great stories, sturdy spine, tight binding, should hold up for a long time. Colors look great, too. This is a great set for long-time fans or newbies.
Cons: HEAVY. This isn't an easily portable item. Take it to read on a plane at your peril!
The stories are entertaining... I would say they take a bit of a dip after issue 144, but they are far better than the confusing mess that the stories became in the 1990s! (Crotchety old man opinion here...hah!)
Now...When I heard of THE UNCANNY X-MEN OMNIBUS VOL # 2 been released, I was like "wow, it's about time".
Rushed for it and was again most pleased, as usual, another well-made book, high quality paper which shows up the art perfectly, over 900 pages, collects THE UNCANNY X-MEN # 132 to 153, ANNUALS #s 3 and 4, AVENGERS ANNUAL #10, MARVEL FANFARE # 1 TO 4 and not to mention a SUPPLEMENT section with bonus stories and extra art.
Crafted by CHRIS CLAREMONT, JOHN BYRNE and DAVE COCKRUM, these stories was, were, are and still IS some of or perhaps MARVEL'S very best !!!. THE "DARK PHOENIX SAGA" is right on par with THE "GALACTUS TRILOGY". Never in my life had I wait so very anxiously, so anticipatingly each month for the next issue !!!. Like classic movies, these tales somehow live with you, you just cannot forget them !!. Though originally issued decades ago, they are as fresh as ever, these are true classics, they have stood the very test of time itself. They set the standard by which all others will be judged...
Another iconic tale is in issue # 143, in which KITTY PRIDE is attacked by a most savage demon and triumphed all by her lonesome. It's real awesome to have all these hit stories in one OMNIBUS.
"DAYS OF FUTURE PAST" , another well crafted tale with conflicts involving THE BROTHERHOOD OF EVIL MUTANTS , which is now a mega movie is showcased in issues # 141 & # 142 respectively.
Other well crafted tales includes ALPHA FLIGHT, THE WENDIGO, DOCTOR DOOM, MAGNETO and let's not forget the mysterious, timid and elusive CALIBAN...I would love to see more of CALIBAN.
In MARVEL FANFARE the adventure continues with KAZAR, SPIDER MAN in the SAVAGE LAND against SAURON and a horde of others.
Overall this classic set is indeed PARAMOUNT EXCELLENCE REVISITED and REISSUED !!!.
TO all fans of THE UNCANNY X-MEN and the "TRUE BELIEVER", a perfect way to introduce anyone to MIGHTY MARVEL, this set I most highly recommend...MAKE MINE MARVEL...EXCELSIOR !!!.
Few minor quibbles: didn't understand the cover 'remake'.... they should have used the original cover by Byrne and Austin. Also, there are some introductions from Claremont, Austin (loved that one), and Louise Simonson. It seems like they were lifted straight from prior Masterwork volumes. Kind of wish they had been updated to reflect this great release.
Anyway... this book (and the prior volume) are must haves if only for the Claremont/Byrne/Austin run. Read this and see what the XMEN movies could have really been like.
Marvel: you must put out the entire Claremont Xmen runs in omnibus format! I want the full saga in omnibus complete with minor crossovers- obviously you've done the big events as separate books.
This material is still magic & fresh! Claremont & Byrne are legends! They should be in charge of marvel's creative direction today but that's another loss for humanity.
Not that Byrne/ Claremont didn't weave magic solo- they did!
In the meantime marvel should crank out more of the classic series in omnibus form- moonknight, X factor, Excalibur, and especially an ALPHA FLIGHT omnibus!!!! etc etc.
