X-Lapsed, Episode 44 - Excalibur #6

October 20, 2020

The King is Weird... Long Weird the King!

As Excalibur (hopefully) wraps up its Otherworld arc, the place gets a new ruler... and he's a weirdo pervert.  At least he's a Braddock!  Today we have dueling siblings, crushed nuts, and perhaps the quickest resurrection of the Dawn of X era!

Morituri Mondays, Episode 31 - Strikeforce: Morituri #31 (7/89) w/Brent Anderson!!!

Morituri Mondays, Episode 31 - Strikeforce: Morituri #31 (7/89) w/Brent Anderson!!!

October 19, 2020

Finally folks... we come to the end of our (regularly-scheduled) run on Morituri Mondays... but, never you fear - we've still got (at least) five thick issues of Strikeforce: Morituri - Electric Undertow on their way in the not-so-distant future.

But, that's a story for another day...

Today, not only do we wrap up the monthly run of Strikeforce: Morituri... but the Chris's had the absolute pleasure and privilege of chatting with Strikeforce: Morituri co-creator and artist - Brent Anderson!!!  Brent was kind enough to join us for nearly two-hours to chat about, not only this franchise that we hold so dear... but to answer some questions from our faithful friends and listeners!

It's a bittersweet episode - and we cannot wait for you all to hear it!

Major X-Lapsed, Episode 1 - Major X #1

Major X-Lapsed, Episode 1 - Major X #1

October 18, 2020

Who's ready to party like it's 1991?

Welcome, friends to the first spinoff program to X-Lapsed - Major X-Lapsed!  That's right, today we're going to be covering the somewhat divisive little ditty from the somewhat divisive Rob Liefeld.  I'll probably be doing one of these a week for the next several.  If you're expecting this to be a half-hour of me bashing this first issue of Major X... well, you're probably going to be a little bit disappointed.

As someone who came into the comics fandom in the early nineties... this comic is more comfort food to me than anything.  "Popcorn Comics", which is sometimes exactly what the doctor ordered...

X-Lapsed, Episode 43 - Marauders #6

October 17, 2020

Business just picked up!  Today, faithful friends and listeners... we're talking about one heck of an issue of Marauders.  Join me as we look at one of the strongest issues of the Dawn of X era yet!

Also: An X-Tended Listener Mail segment chatting pretty much everything from HoXPoX through to DoX... with a little EcksOfTens for good measure!

X-Lapsed, Episode 42 - X-Men #5

October 16, 2020

Fallen Angels isn't even over yet, and X-23 is already joining another team?  Well, I guess that's just a sign of the times.  Today we join her, Synch, and Darwin as they attempt to infiltrate the Children of the Vault's... well, vault.

It's another strange one-off issue of X-Men (vol.5)... listen to me try not to complain that it's not everything I wanted it to be!

X-Lapsed, Episode 41 - Fallen Angels #5

October 15, 2020

It's the penultimate issue of Fallen Angels... so, what's say we actually start-and-finish rounding out our team, yeah?

Today I talk about how unpleasant a character Kwannon is, and question how anyone ever thought she could carry her own back-up feature in a random issue of X-Men Unlimited much less an actual miniseries.  At least there's only one to go...

X-Lapsed, Episode 40 - X-Force #5

October 14, 2020

Whatever happened to Wolverine's bottom half?  For that matter, whattabout Quentin Quire from the shoulders down?  Prepare to find out, my friends...

Today our (makeshift) X-Treme Team takes on a group of MERCs who maybe aren't completely ready for prime-time.  They make plenty of mistakes... but, the sort that kinda have to happen for the story to work out the way it does.  That's just the row we hoe with X-Force(d).

Also: Some great listener mail... featuring thoughts on the new take on Bobby Drake, the "shoe-drop" issue of HoXPoX, and the hottest take of them all... somebody liked the New Mutants "Farm" story???

X-Lapsed, Episode 39 - New Mutants #5

October 13, 2020

I never thought I'd be so happy to see Deathbird!

Welcome back to Shi'ar Space, fellow NewMu's... it's time for one heck of a fun (farm-less) issue of New Mutants!  Join me as I talk all about how much I enjoy these characters... while at the same time, am growing a bit weary of the tricks of the current DoX landscape.  We've got nothin' happenin' bad guys, and a cliffhanger that threatens with some mutant deaths.  We're just a power-dampening collar away from the "hat trick"!

Also: Great listener feedback... and some more of me rattling off about my reviewing process for far too long!

X-Lapsed, Episode 38 - Excalibur #5

October 12, 2020

Today's issue of Excalibur is... well, kind of all over the place.  Lotta stuff happens... nebulously.  We even get yet another mutant "death"!

Also: Your humble host learns a bit more about Britishness... just enough to realize he still hasn't the foggiest idea what he's talking about!  Join in for all the fun!

X-Lapsed, Episode 37 - Marauders #5

October 11, 2020

Today we kick off the Dawn of X Wave One #5s with Marauders!  We get some great callbacks to the long ago... and your humble host uncomfortably talks about the new(ish) take on Bobby Drake.  I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on the post-2016 Iceman!

Also: I am questioned as to what my "review process" looks like... and I do my best to answer.  All'at and much, much more!
