Item description for The Unauthorized X-Men: SF and Comic Writers on Mutants, Prejudice, and Adamantium (Smart Pop series) by Len Wein & Leah Wilson...

Comic writers trace the X-Men series' evolution, challenge its metaphors, and draw from its truths about human nature and human society in this exploratory look at the still-timely and often-revamped classic. With chapters such as Magneto the Jew, The New Mutants and the Corruption of the Teenager, and The Sexuality of X-Men, the contributors highlight the strange ties between the characters and current society. From mutant subcultures in the real world to the reality of racism and heterosexism not so different from that of the world of the X-Men, this book takes on the intersection between fiction and truth in a manner perfect for long-time comic readers, cartoon fans, and Johnny-come-lately moviegoers.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Unauthorized X-Men: SF and Comic Writers on Mutants, Prejudice, and Adamantium (Smart Pop series)?

Pretty awsome!  Feb 11, 2007
This was an interesting book. Instead of all the flowery things ppl can say about the X-Men, there were real people who (for the most part) had some hand in the creation of the X-Men talking about what they thought about the X-Men as a whole. In one of the chapters a man tells of how when he was a young boy he got the first issue of the commic and loved it, but didn't see any more until he was older. He told about how he had loved the first issue...but wasn't a big fan of what they ended up becoming. I enjoyed this book because it had so many different opinions and veiw points of the same thing. All in all a good read!!
