First off let me just say that I have been a huge fan of the X-Men animated show and always wanted to check the comics out and was happy when I heard of these big books. Although in black and white I really like them. I have Volume 1-7, I think thats issues 94-228 plus some extra issues and annuals. Anyways does anyone know if issues 229 - beyond will be 'essentialized'? Id get the masterworks which are in colour but they dont have as many issues and are way more expensive than these.
