Amazing Adventures volume 3 (1979): 1-14

Amazing Adventures V3 reprinted the earliest adventures of the original X-Men from X-Men (1963) #1-8. Since the page counts did not match, the stories were split over two comics, requiring the rewriting of captions and addition of new splash pages. For fillers, the backup origin stories from X-Men #38-47 were also included.

Complete reprints are found elsewhere in the Masterworks, Omnibuses, and Essentials books. The X-Men: Early Years reprint title also covers the same issues, but without the backup stories. Given the editing, these comics probably aren't worth obtaining unless you want some of the new John Byrne covers.
