So the book promises the classic storyline as well as multiple appearances of the Days of Future Past timeline. Well, the packaging is beautiful. The hardcover is really well done, oversized and of high quality. The stories within ... are not. I feel like this book is a cash grab to hopefully snag in fools who loved the most recent X-Men movie and who want to get in on the story it spawned from. 80% of this book is forgetful and the stories rather boring. The cover and art galleries in the back of the book are great and there are a few issues that are either beautiful to look at or are a solid read (my opiniion is five out of thirteen are pretty solid). But if I had been able to look at the book before buying it, I probably would hacve skipped on it. I was lured in by the promise of cool Days of Future Past stories but beyond the original two issue tale, it was rather uncecessary to revisit the timeline.
