Book publishing resuorce Eidelweiss has listed a collection of super-rare X-Men stories from the 1990s - some never available in stores.

Adventures of the X-Men: Tooth & Claw will collect the X-Men back-up stories from the 1994-1997 Spider-Man Magazine. Originally launched as a tie-in to the 1994 Spider-Man cartoon, Spider-Man Magazine had an X-Men story on one side, and a Spider-Man story on the other, to be read by turning the book over and upside down - in other words, flipping it.

"The X-Men were the breakout stars of the 1990s - and, not content with their own titles, they also stole the show with highly animated all-ages adventures in the pages of SPIDER-MAN MAGAZINE! Now, these rarely seen tales are collected for the very first time!" reads Edelweiss' description.

"Join the X-Men's most iconic lineup -Cyclops, Wolverine, Storm, Jean Grey, Rogue, Gambit, Beast, Jubilee and Professor X -as they confront awesome enemies including Magneto, Juggernaut, Mystique, Sabretooth, Mojo, the Morlocks and the Sentinels! Plus a titanic two-part team-up with Spider-Man himself! But why is Cyclops battling Gambit? And can Jubilee survive when she stows away on a Savage Land safari? Plus, bonus backups featuring Iron Man and the Fantastic Four!"

These stories included work from writers Kelly P. Corvese, Robert Loren Fleming, and Mike Marts (a future X-Men editor), along with art from Chris Batista, Don Heck,  Francis Mao, and Artie Ruiz.
