So I bought this through Mile High Comics for Christmas and my copy didn’t come with the cover page. So I don’t know much about the credits so I don’t want to credit anyone incorrectly.
I’m going with comicbookdb’s credit page – though I’m not sure if the artist credited did Shadowcat’s profile.
Writers Mark Gruenwald, Glenn Herdling, Len Kaminski and Jamie Tost
Penciler Keith Pollard
Inker Joe Rubinstein
Colorist Andy Yanchus
Letterer Dwight Cove
Cover Dated March 1991
I really like the concept of this series, that all of the pages are three hole punched so that they can be collected in a binder.
There is a Mister Jip profile! Who I know from All New Ultimates, pretty good Ultimatization.
So I own this for the Shadowcat profile.

Origin Issue : X-Men 129
Significant Issues :

Was this the first series of handbooks that included, Significant Issues?
I guess Excalibur 33 was the latest issue to come out.
Kitty is only referenced by the Significant Issue :
