X-Lapsed, Episode 26 - Marauders #3

September 30, 2020

The Father and Child Re-oo-oo-niun... is only a mutant away-ay.

Today we hang out with the Shaws... Sebastian and Shinobi, as they (maybe?) attempt to put aside their differences and work together for the betterment of mutantkind... or, the financial milking of humankind.

Also: I wax nostalgic over Shinobi's old running buddies: the Upstarts, Bill Jemas' failed EPIC Comics relaunch (announced in Marville), and trawlin' Mall Cons looking for the early issues of X-Factor!

Thank you for being a friend...

For this landmark 25th Episode of X-Lapsed, we are visited by an octogenerian group of "radical botanists" who have designs on controlling... or crushing Krakoa.  It's up to Cyclops, Emma Frost, and Sebastian Shaw to try and stop them.

Also: "Comedy" in comics, the Golden Age of Fandom, Learnin' the Legion, and much more!

September 27, 2020

In the wake of the assassinations of REDACTED, X-Force goes on the offensive to track down who might have been behind it.  What they find is something... well, pretty gross!  Join me as we take a trip to a most peculiar South Korean Printing Press.

Also: Conflicts between logic and faith in a universe as extraordinary as the one we're reading about, more threats of discussing the Alan Moore Captain Britain, more feedback on the Uncanny Lives of Moira X... and much more!

September 26, 2020

Order in the court!  (Ham and Cheese)

It's here that the New Mutants have their day in court... will Roberto's wicked space lawyer get them off, or will our young heroes wind up incarcerated by the Shi'ar Empire for life?  Worse yet, will they get stuck hanging out with Cannonball's annoying better half?  Those answers, and a whole lot more... in this very episode!

Also: Losing touch with friends, dealing with the realization that you're no longer a comics' intended audience, and some great listener mail!

X-Lapsed, Episode 20 - Excalibur #2

September 24, 2020

Whattaya get when you cross an X-Men comic with a sub-par D&D campaign?  Uh, don't answer that.

Today we're discussing the second issue of Excalibur by Tini Howard and Marcus To... and, well... by no fault of the creatos, this really isn't the sort of story that falls in your humble host's wheelhouse.  Maybe I can be proven wrong... then again, maybe not.

Who's ready for more Summers family weirdness?

On this episode of X-Lapsed, we join Cyclops, Prestige, and Cable as they investigate a new island that just appeared on the horizon... we also get to see a kink... err, softer side of Krakoa.  X-Men (vol.5) #2 comes to us from Jonathan Hickman and Leinil Francis Yu, and was certainly not what I expected!

Some insightful (?) comics chat with a side of wonderful listener mail is waiting for you!

Morituri Mondays, Episode 30 - Strikeforce: Morituri #30 (6/89)

Morituri Mondays, Episode 30 - Strikeforce: Morituri #30 (6/89)

September 22, 2020

Hello Friends,

Today's episode of Morituri Mondays is a special one that we couldn't wait to share!  Not only are we discussing the penultimate (monthly) issue of Strikeforce: Morituri, but we were granted a Q&A session with original Strikeforce: Morituri artist and co-creator, Brent Anderson!  The first half of those questions will be covered in this very episode!

But first, the Chris's go "Full Treadmill", providing a bio for Mr. Anderson from his earliest days in the fandom to when he took up the pencil for this very series.  Fans of Chris and Reggie's Cosmic Treadmill will hopefully fondly remember coverage of creator bios.

As for this issue we'll be discussing... it's another banger!  And, what's more, it opened up the opportunity for another Treadmillism to sneak its way back into the limelight... "The Hook" returns for a long-form discussion on some of the mysteries surrounding the death (?) of Elvis Presley!

It's a great time as always... made better by Brent!  We hope you enjoy, and will return for Part Two of the Q&A next episode!

X-Lapsed, Episode 18 - Fallen Angels #1

September 21, 2020

Y'ever hear the one about the butterfly?  No?  Well, you're going to... a lot.

Today we wrap up the first wave of Dawn of X #1's with, perhaps the oddball of the group - Fallen Angels #1 by Bryan Hill and Szymon Kudranski.  Who said we only needed on Psylocke?  Probably the same person who said we only need one Psyocke-led book!  Will this one be near as interesting as Excalibur?  Let's find out together...

Also: I remember rate the Dawn of X Wave One #1's in the order I most enjoyed them, and some great listener feedback with some varying opinions on the HoX/PoX/DoX landscape!
