X-Lapsed, Episode 207 - Way of X #2

June 18, 2021

It's my favorite day of the X-Lapsed Month... Way of X day!

After reading the first issue of this series, I was sure nothing could ever top it... and then they went and DID!  A truly wonderful issue, indeed - listen to me gush over it for over a half hour!

Plus: Our Always X-Cellent Mailbag!

X-Lapsed, Episode 206 - X-Factor #9

June 17, 2021

When is a penultimate issue more like a finale?  Well, when your actual final issue is a chapter of an Event Crossover... like the Hellfire Gala.

Oh, you didn't know?  There's a Hellfire Gala on the horizon.  They totally don't talk about it every chance they get... so, I don't blame you for not knowing!

Today, we look at a book whose watchword is "truncation".  The axe of cancellation appears to have fallen during the production of this issue... and yet, Williams and Baldeon still manage to deliver an enjoyable outing!  We've got Morrigan and Mojoworld... um, please listen anyway - I promise it'll be fun!

Also: An X-Panded Mailbag Segment full of x-cellent x-chatter!

X-Lapsed, Episode 205 - X-Corp #1

June 16, 2021

Welcome, friends... to, hands down, the most difficult episode of X-Lapsed I've ever done!  If you've been following this show for any length of time, you'll know I really don't like being negative about our books... but, this one... hoo boy.  I literally almost threw up the white flag.

I feel like I need to publicly apologize to Fallen Angels, Empyre: X-Men, the Broo King Egg story, X-Men #12 and #14 being the same damn book, and even X-Men: Curse of the Man-Thing... because, those were all a dream compared to this!

On a positive note... if you can make it through my negativity long enough - we've got some great mailbag discussion to close out!

The CotA "slow burn" continues... and, well - there ain't a whole heckuva lot to say about it!

We do have some great mailbag discussion today though!

X-Lapsed, Episode 203 - X-Men: Curse of the Man-Thing #1

June 14, 2021

Today we cover a One-Shot... that is actually a Part III... which includes Chapters 7-9 of a story that started two One-Shots ago... and ran through a second One-Shot, that all had different names.  Also, it's just not very good!

Today I'm going to complain all about it... and Steve Orlando's wildly unnatural sounding dialogue!

Plus: Great Mailbag, including the return of a recently X-Lapsed friend

And - a plea to the comics social media bubble NOT to rush to spoil this week's Planet-Sized X-Men (ehh, who am I kidding... it's GOING to be spoiled for us...)

Those answers... well, might be in this issue.

The Collected X-Lapsed, Episode 06 - Dawn of X, Volume 5

The Collected X-Lapsed, Episode 06 - Dawn of X, Volume 5

June 12, 2021

We're at our traditional "penultimate chapter" issues of each of our Dawn of X launch titles... however, only one of the six seems to be playing along!

Fallen Angels gets ready to wrap up by finally putting together their team (who we'll never see work together again after this series) - X-Men decides to ignore Fallen Angels completely by having X-23 fall back into her pre-FA character and costume... before the other series even ends -  Forge acts a chucklehead in X-Force - we resume our New Mutants space story (never thought I'd be so happy to see Deathbird!), your humble host becomes more accustomed to the new take on Bobby Drake, and Excalibur begins it's "Have I missed an issue?" meme!

All that, plus the always X-Cellent Mailbags!  If you are only now discovering X-Lapsed through these Collected Editions - please, reach out and let me know your thoughts!

The Essential X-Lapsed, Episode 6 - X-Men #6

The Essential X-Lapsed, Episode 6 - X-Men #6

June 11, 2021

Stop me if you've heard this one... it's the X-Men vs. The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants!  But, friends, that's not all... this time out, the Brotherhood is joined by Namor the Sub-Mariner, firmly establishing that the X-Men are part of the shared Marvel Universe!  Why, we even get editorial footnotes pointing us to recent issues of Fantastic Four and Avengers!

Plus: Starting today (and hopefully for as long as we can), we're going to be taking the pulse of the comics fan of the day, when we read and discuss the "Let's Visit the X-Men" Letters Pages!  Today we'll be covering the letters Stan and Jack received for issues #3 and #4 (appearing in X-Men #5 & 6)!

It's a good time as always... hope you'll give us a try!

The Essential X-Lapsed, Episode 5 - X-Men #5

The Essential X-Lapsed, Episode 5 - X-Men #5

June 10, 2021

Boy, I hope you're not already tired of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants... because, we're just getting started with them!

Today, we meet Jean Grey's parents... who have such a high opinion of Charles Xavier, they probably wouldn't even mind him creeping on their little girl.  They also don't seem to have a problem with the fact that she's the only young lady in a house full of teen-age boys.  Different times, I s'pose!

Also... the Brotherhood!  They do Evil and/or Morally Ambiguous stuff... it's kinda their gimmick!
