WHY THESE ISSUES?

Well, I don't like saying I told ya so, but these two bronze age key X-Men issues have gone up in value and demand in the last few months. Yes, it largely has to do with the X-Men sequel being based off the Days of Future Past storyline contained in X-Men #141 and #142.

Even more so, the cinematic version directed by Bryan Singer seems to becoming more epic than ever. Both the original X-Men cast  of Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Halle Berry (Storm), Patrick Stewart (Prof X), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), and the new X-Men cast of James Mcavoy (Prof X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), and Nicholas Hoult (Beast) will come together to bring this fan-favorite story to the big screen.

The closer the movie gets to its release date, the hotter and more these comics' values seem to be getting. I advise way back when it announced that the new X-Men sequel would be based on these X-Men issues to go out and snag them. 

It's still not too late, however. The movie is gearing up to be really exciting and the proof is in the pudding with people paying well over guide for these two bronze age keys as of now.

These key issues are good investment comics to have whether you're an X-Men fan or not. And with recent news from Bryan Singer about a new cast member added to X-Men Days of Future Past, the anticipation and excitement is getting even hotter among comic fans and for these issues.
