Cosmic Treadmill ep. 104 - Marvel Comics’ Age of Apocalypse Part Five: X-Universe #1-#2 (1995)

August 26, 2018

Hello again, fellow human scum! In this episode, wastrels Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) dive back into the vicious nightmare that is Marvel Comics' 1995 X-Men-based comic book event, The Age of Apocalypse! Today we learn about what's happening outside of the mutant class, checking in on the other characters--and providing complete biographies for--appearing in X-Universe #1 and #2 from 1995! There's a lot to dissect as they try to provide context for the shocking character changes presented in these issues, so you won't be blamed if you need to listen to this episode several times!

August 12, 2018

Cosmic Treadmill Special: Young Animal “Gatherum”, Episode 1

August 9, 2018

Greetings, Dangerous Humans!  As we are currently in what might just be the final month of DC's Young Animal imprint, your Young and Animalistic hosts, Chris (@acecomics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) thought it might be fun to share with you their initial thoughts on the launch!  In this extra-sized (or, over-sized) episode they look at all four "number one" issues.  Since the Young Animal launch was staggered from September-November, 2016... there are also a couple of "non-number one" reviews in there as well.

Head back with us into the not-so-distant past... and relive some Young Animal memories.  Learn just how much we initially hated Mother Panic, and how over the Moon we were with Doom Patrol and Shade the Changing Girl... boy, how that changed!  Feel free to follow along at home... let's send the Young Animal imprint into the sunset with a smile.

***Warning: We might be a little bit looser with our language during these episodes

Chris & Reggie SPECIAL - What if… DC’s Young Animal #100?!

August 5, 2018

Hello everyone!

With our sincerest apologies, we report that... due to technical difficulties beyond our control, we were unable to record Part Three (of Five) of our Age of Apocalypse Spectacular.

We appreciate your patience, and we didn't wanna leave you hanging this (or any) Sunday morning... and so, for your listening pleasure... something completely different!

Over at Weird Science DC Comics, your humble hosts Chris (@acecomics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) host a segment wherein they discuss DC's Young Animal "pop-up" imprint.  During episode #100 of the Weird Science DC Comics Podcast (December 4, 2016), having no actual Young Animal books to discuss (sadly, a fairly common occurrence) they thought it would be fun to, not go BACK TO THE PAST... but, instead... INTO THE FUTURE (hey, the Cosmic Treadmill goes both ways!) and discuss the one-hundredth issues of both Doom Patrol, and Shade the Changing Girl.  Prescient... is not a word often used to describe Chris or Reggie.

We hope you enjoy this bit, and humbly and sincerely apologize for our inability to put out an all-new episode.  Though, if you haven't heard this yet... it's new to you!

Cosmic Treadmill ep. 101 - Marvel Comics’ Age of Apocalypse Part Two: Astonishing X-Men #1 (and all the #1 issues!) (1995)

July 29, 2018

Greetings, fellow slaves of Apocalypse! In this episode, our cannon fodder Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) return to that dystopian dimension in part two of their look at the Marvel Comics event Age of Apocalypse from 1995! Concentrating on Astonishing X-Men #1 (March 1995) but covering each #1 issue of this event, including full creator and character biographies, our time-hopping duo attempt to weave this tale of what might have been--and may yet be!--if things aren't returned to normal. Tune in next week for more of this epic storyline that affected the X-Men forever! No, really!

Cosmic Treadmill ep. 100 - Marvel Comics’ Age of Apocalypse Part One: X-Men Alpha #1 (1995)

July 22, 2018

Hello, dwellers of an alternate dystopian future! In this Giant-Size episode, dimension-shunters Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) check out Marvel Comics crossover so big, they'll need multiple parts to get through it! It's Age of Apocalypse, part one, specifically dealing with 1995's X-Men Alpha #1 by Scott Lobdell, Mark Waid, Roger Cruz and Steve Epting! After laying down some substantial story groundwork, our pair dive right into biographies for all four creators that are directly involved in X-Men Alpha #1! After dissecting that issue to the last panel, our guys are pretty tuckered out, so they table further apocalyptic events until the next episode! You won't want to miss the first installment of this dimensionally-sneaky series!
