Get out the cassette tapes and wrap some flannel around your waist: The Pull List is going '90s today with the latest X-Men hardcover from Marvel. X-Men: Phalanx Covenant collects 18 issues associated with the thriller-tinged storyline.

Phalanx Covenant follows humans who use Warlock's techno-organic virus to create monsters out of themselves, targeting the world's mutants. All of the X-teams, X-Men, X-Factor, Excalibur and X-Force included, work together to stop the threat. The collection, running $75, features work from scribes like Scott Lobdell, Chris Cooper, Fabian Nicieza and Todd Dezago. Featured artists include Joe Madureira, Lee Weeks and John Royle.

Phalanx Covenant is a bright spot in the X-Men's long history of events. There was something special about that 1994, all-hands-on-deck approach to handling these complex narratives. Don't forget the partially foil covers.

Now, let's see what else is hitting the shelves this week.
