I remember when my dad went to 7-11 and came home with this issue. It was before I received my copy of Giant-Size X-Men #1. He knew that I loved the X-Men and thought I would enjoy this. Two dollars was a hefty price to pay for a comic book back then. The Baxter-paper format must have given it some extra-added worth for him to pick it up. I am very happy that he did. For a long while, this was my favorite X-Men book.
