I'm trying to read more of the old stuff by Marvel, without having to spend a ton of money on back issues. So I've been focusing on Omnibus style books and came across this one on ebay, so I bought it for $20 with free shipping. It's a full fledged Omnibus so can anybody help me out here with this book? Doesn't seem to be in the main stream of the x-men timeline.

Here is the link to Amazon.com showing the Omnibus HC. Just wanted to know if anyone has read it and how or if it fits in the overall x-men timeline. It sounds pretty cool.

X-men: the Chaos Engine Trilogy (Doctor Doom/Magneto/Red Skull)

Now i need to dig around and see if I can find the X-Statix Omnibus, heard that was different as well as a good read...

It's my understanding that these stories were strictly text based paperback novels. None of those fit into any continuity if that's what you're asking.

I'm a huge X-Men fan and had never heard of this. That's because it's not comics. Just a collection of three novels. And based on a spoiler of book 1 I just read these aren't close to being in continuity.

I've read those! I got them a while ago (5+ years ago, probably closer to ten) at a used book shop in town. Not a bad read, I thought it got kind of boring after the first, but I didn't really know much about comics outside of the X-Men and Spider-Man. Anyway, I still have them on my shelf and if you enjoy them I might have to give them another read through!
