Morituri Mondays, Episode 8 - Strikeforce: Morituri #8 (7/87)

November 11, 2019

Guilt-Stricken, sobbin' with our heads on the floor... today, we meet The Freshmen!

That's right, gang... today we get up-close and personal with those newbies that, for the past couple of issues, have been cookin' in Dr. Tuolema's proverbial "kitchen".  Not only do we meet 'em, we accompany them on their first actual mission as part of the team... and, ho boy, it is quite the trial by fire!

All that, and we also tell you how you can become:

  • An Orange Big Shot... with Tang!
  • A Neighborhood Ninja... with Lady Shogun
  • Part of a club, that's made for you and me... with Em Eye See (see ya real soon...)

ReMarvel, Episode 6: The X-Men & Me / Me & the X-Men

ReMarvel, Episode 6: The X-Men & Me / Me & the X-Men

November 8, 2019

What's happenin', mutants?

Today I go off-the-cuff and share my life and times as an X-Fan.  From the gimmicky nineties, through the event-heavy aughts, and into the reboot-heavy present.  Up until a few years ago, the X-Men have always been a "comfort food" for me... and I'm doing my darnedest to get that feeling back!All that, and some news about the future of the show!

Note: If you're a regular listener, the first 5-10 minutes will be bits of stories you've likely already heard... at least once!

Reggie’s Comics Stories ep. 20 - Collecting the Mid-Twentieth Century with Lilly McCrea

November 6, 2019

Hey folks! Continuing this look at what motivates collectors and the things we collect, I talk with my good friend Lilly McCrea about her more casual–but still persistent!–collecting hobby. It's a little different than comic books or sports cards, let me know what you think!

Harold is dead.

The team is barreling toward the Horde flagship... without their leader, without a plan, without weapons... and without a clue!

Will the Strikeforce rise to the occasion... or crumble under the pressure?  It's their toughest challenge to date... and when it's all over, they might find their number dwindling even more!

Also: Flyin' Kites with Rain-Blo, the hunt for Bazooka Joe, skateboarding misadventures, and cheap magic tricks!

ReMarvel, Episode 5: Generation X Underground Special (1998)

November 1, 2019

Sup fellow kids?

In this mega-epic, over-the-top, super funkified fifth installment of ReMarvel, I'm gonna take you deep into the underground, when we take a look at the Generation X Underground Special, written and drawn by Jim Mahfood... who your host once got a dirty look from!

Yes, it's another X-Family book... I'm sorry.

Also, I talk about my brand new mutant ability to destroy all the tech in my life and empty out a bank account... as well as share my thoughts on the "current year" Dawn of X stories I have read so far!

For all y'all in the know... this is the big one.  For all y'all that don't... buckle in!

When our Strikeforcers are sent to Holowood for a little R & R, their time off is anything but restful or relaxing!  It doesn't take long for the baddies to show their bulbous chins, and interrupt our team's attempt at tripping the light fantastic in scenic Los Anheles!  The Horde is bored, the team's going stir-crazy, Aline and Robert are losing their marbles... and we've got an ending nobody saw coming!

It's a pulse (and pillow) pounding issue, make sure to hold on to your Ugly Balls!

They say you can't go home again... and today we will test that theory on multiple fronts!

After sharing a brief audio-version of a vacation slideshow (please listen anyway!), I tell the story of how a strange and X-Perimental new direction for X-Force helped bring me back into comics fandom after walking away two years earlier!  All that, and a deep dive into the first Road Trip-era issue!

Mori-Tuesday?  Sure, why not!

A day late, and a dollar short... Morituri Mondays is at it again, and this time out our team of heroes are in mourning... the lovely Lorna wound up succumbing to the strain of the Morituri Process!  The crew doesn't get to mourn for long however, as the Horde has chosen just this moment to invade the hearts, minds, and skin of suburban Illinois!  Will the team be able to fight through the paranoia of propaganda... or will they lose yet another member?!

Also: Fun with Accents!  Hivemind Mentalities!  A Smarties Update!  Selling Prizes for Cash!  The final two parts of Gumby and Pokey in Gum-Dinger Land!
