Retroactive Special Edition: Uncanny X-Men Through The Decades

marvel retro

Welcome one and all to a very special edition of Retroactive. Over the course of countless editions, I had previously highlighted and chosen my favourite Uncanny X-Men covers from each year of the title’s existence. With this special edition I plan on taking those winners and determining the very best of each decade. Below you’ll find the various links to each decade. Click on that specific logo to be instantly taken to my number one choice complete with my original synopsis along with links to all the Retroactive features of that specific decade so you yourself can chime in with your selections.

One thought on “Retroactive Special Edition: Uncanny X-Men Through The Decades

  1. 60s: UXM # 2
    70s: UXM # 75
    80s: UXM # 236
    90s: UXM # 358
    00s: UXM Annual 2000
    10s: UXM # 527

    It was a very hard task to choose the best cover of the 90s, because there were two other images that got very close to the overall gold medal: UXM # 290 and UXM # 348.
    Of course choosing the best cover of the 00s wasn’t easy either, because UXM # 493 would have deserved the 1st prize as well.
    Maybe 2009 was the best time ever for the X – covers. All the images I put on the podium in that Retroactive edition are extremely beautiful, and even the cover which got the 4th prize would have won the gold medal with ease in any other year.
