Want It Got It TPB: Nightcrawler Mini-Series

RELEASED on - 01/12/16: X-Men Epic Collection: The Gift - COLLECTING: NIGHTCRAWLER (1985) 1-4 among other things.
RELEASED on - 10/18/16: X-Men #153 & Bizarre Adventures #27 can be found in a variety of TPBs, but both are in Uncanny X-Men Omnibus HC vol. 02
Dork Note: There still isn't a TPB that includes Nightcrawler #1-4 (2002), but for now I'm glad we at least have the 1985 mini in TPB.

Writers and Artist: Various
Created by:
Len Wein and Dave Cockrum

Marvel Comics (1981-2002)

The Uncanny X-Men #153, Bizarre Adventures #27, Nightcrawler #1-4 (1985), Nightcrawler #1-4 (2002)

Since Nightcrawler is one of the most popular X-Men there is...these two mini-series and their tie-ins should be compiled and reprinted.

I never read the second mini-series, but I did read the other bits. The Bizarre Adventure explores the world Nightcrawler travels through while teleporting. Bizarre Adventure is then followed up with a fairy tale story in the X-Men, which then becomes, somewhat, reality in Nightcrawler's first mini-series.

Note to Marvel: Why did you never make a Bamf Doll seen in the X-Men #168 and I believe first appeared in X-Men #153? I would have loved to get one for my daughter.

I loved the original mini as a kid, just a lot of fun the way comics should be.
