Celebrate 50 Years of Chris Claremont and the X-Men with Two Free Comics

Download 'Uncanny X-Men' #141-142 this weekend only!

In 1969, a young "gofer" in the Marvel Comics office named Chris Claremont pitched a storyline wherein the Sentinels would attempt to destroy the sun. Series writer Roy Thomas liked the concept, and together with artist Neal Adams, executed the idea in the pages of UNCANNY X-MEN (1963) #59. And with that, one of the most legendary storytelling careers in comic book history began...

This weekend, celebrate the 50th anniversary of what Claremont himself has described as his "benchmark" year at Marvel Comics with two free comics—UNCANNY X-MEN #141-142, better known as "Days of Future Past"!

Claremont

Five years after his revelatory experience alongside Thomas and Adams, Claremont would begin his own tenure writing Marvel's mighty mutants with UNCANNY X-MEN (1963) #94. And then he went down in history with mutantkind.
