    Hi,I've noticed that on Amazon.co.uk are selling these volumes and I'm interested in knowing Marvel UK universe, which has a solid reputation.
    I wanted to know this:the first 2 volumes have also US stories(I know that in US and UK same stories appeared on different comic issues) or just the ones created for UK?

    Then,at the moment UK comics in the collection are all present following the chronological order or is it just a "best of"the series?

    Thanks for your help

    The UK Classics stories have all of the stories exclusive to the UK. They work around the US ones. Have the US books handy (or their own Classics volumes) and you'll get the whole story (except when they skip over Headmasters for some stupid reason).

    It looks like they're in publication order.. This is my first time reading most of them, and usually you can tell where US books fit in.

    Trust me, publication order is better than chronological order. Honestly, the obsession with everything chronological has to come to an end soon. Chronological is rarely best for "reading order". Take the screw-up of the hardcover IDW Collections - "Megatron: Origin" before "Infiltration"? Blech.

    It's like Star Wars. Release order is the most efficient way.
