Cosmic Treadmill Special: Sandman Universe “Gatherum”, Episode 7

October 31, 2020

Happy Halloween, Everybody!

In the spirit of the season, I'm sharing a little something I've been keeping in my back pocket for the better part of two years - the seventh installment of the Sandman Universe "Gatherum", from back in the long ago where Reggie and I would cover the "weirdo books" over at Weird Science DC Comics.

I hope everyone enjoys this little blast from the past... and has a happy and safe holiday.

X-Lapsed, Episode 52 - Marauders #7

X-Lapsed, Episode 52 - Marauders #7

October 30, 2020

X-Lapsed goes back to business as usual, with a look at one of our core Dawn of X books - a rather transitional issue of Marauders.  Call Me Kate is still M.I.A., and the Hellfire Tots continue to put their plans in motion.

All that, and I talk way too long about my adventures in Rio Verde, Arizona... while thanking the creative team for actually depicting an area of the state I live in as being something other than the setting for a Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner cartoon!

Also: Some (wildly optimistic?) housekeeping... with an eye toward the next fifty-plus episodes of this program!

X-Lapsed, Episode 51 - Giant-Size X-Men: Jean Grey + Emma Frost #1

October 29, 2020

Shh!!!  Psychic Podcast in Progress!

Today we're taking a look at the (mostly) silent showcase of superstar artist, Russell Dauterman - Giant-Size X-Men: Jean Grey + Emma Frost!  I even pull some tricks out of the Weird Comics History drawer (and an old Previews catalogue from my closet) for this occasion, and do a bit of chatting about Marvel's 2001-2002 'Nuff Said! month!  It's a good time, and a great homage...

Also: Some wonderful listener mail, which really made your humble host's day!

X-Lapsed, Episode 50 - X-Men + Fantastic Four #4

October 28, 2020

Welcome, friends... to the landmark fiftieth episode of X-Lapsed!

Today, I'm taking a page out of the Chris is on Infinite Earths playbook... where I spend about a half-hour getting a little personal about just why this milestone is so important to me personally.  For folks who are willing to indulge me, you have my gratitude!  For those who'd rather just hear me talk about the last issue of X-Men + Fantastic Four... no problem, we're still friends!  Just skip ahead to 29:32 and you'll miss all my spoo.

As far as X-Men + Fantastic Four #4... well, it's a little bit uneven... but, we'll give it a goo, and have a good time doing it.

Thank you to everyone for sharing their time with me over the course of this project so far.  I can't put into words what it means to me!

X-Lapsed, Episode 49 - X-Men + Fantastic Four #3

October 27, 2020

In today's penultimate issue of X-Men + Fantastic Four, the stakes are upped once again!  Well, sorta.

We're going to talk a lot about how the X-Men are being portrayed here... and any time they're pitted against, or sharing panel-space with, any other Marvel heroes.  Your humble host tires of seeing his favorite folks "jobbed out" and made to look lesser-than every Marvel character from Willie Lumpkin on up!

We also talk a bit about Godpower... that is, if your host is understanding it right in the first place (please do not take a drink every time I say that...), and the fact that the Invisible Woman is THE MOST POWERFUL CHARACTER IN THE MARVEL UNIVERSE.

It's a good time - and we're just one episode away from the regular-sized, nothin' happenin', non-celebratory 50th Episode of this little program~!  Thanks everybody!

Learn Me The Legion, Episode 1 - Origin Stories & Adventure Comics #247

Learn Me The Legion, Episode 1 - Origin Stories & Adventure Comics #247

October 26, 2020

Welcome friends, to a whole new series - and part of the "New Fall Season" here at the channel.

Longtime Legion-denier, Chris (@acecomics) looks to right the wrong of keeping DC's future-teen-heroes as a deliberate blind-spot in his comics knowledge... and to do so, he's found himself a friend to help him navigate this twisting and storied franchise.  Lifelong Legion fan, Al Sedano (@AdamThanosPod) has graciously agreed to educate and guide me to... maybe eventual Legion-relevance... or, at least maybe being able to identify a dozen or so of these characters on sight!

For this first episode, we share our own Legion origins... or lack thereof, Al provides a brief overview of the franchise, and we start our coverage... well, at the start - with a look at Adventure Comics #247 from 1958!

As this series progresses, we will be alternating between covering Legion stories, and focusing on prominent Legion characters, to try and get me up to speed.  If you're in need of some "Legion Learnin'", this might be the show for you!  If you're already a certified "Doctor of Legionomics"... well, you still might enjoy hearing how ignorant I am about the property you hold so dear!  Or, you can at least stick around long enough to hear how I ruined a really good song to make our theme music (apologies to Jarvis...)!

Feedback is encouraged!  We invite you to write in and join us on this little audio journey!

Major X-Lapsed, Episode 2 - Major X #2

Major X-Lapsed, Episode 2 - Major X #2

October 25, 2020

Because absolutely nobody demanded it...

... Major X-Lapsed returns with its second installment!

Today, I have far less fun with Issue #2 of Major X... which, rather than remaining a fun retro romp through the early '90s - starts taking itself a bit too seriously.  We've got Atlantean politics to deal with... and that's just the beginning!  I don't know about y'all, but Atlanteans are right up there with the Inhumans in the list of characters I couldn't care less about!

I'd love to hear everybody's thoughts on this series... good, bad, or indifferent - please don't hesitate to reach out!

X-Lapsed, Episode 48 - X-Men + Fantastic Four #2

X-Lapsed, Episode 48 - X-Men + Fantastic Four #2

October 24, 2020

Keeping with our coverage of X-Men + Fantastic Four - this time out, Reed and the Gang are Krakoa-bound looking for their lost kids.  Only problem is, they ain't there!  Instead, they're out on an island somewhere with Uncle Doom and (Aunt?) Call Me Kate.

It's a knock down drag out affair when the X-Men and Fantastic Four go at it... and one that, despite how much I'm enjoying it, I'm going to poke several holes in.

Also: Some parting shots at Fallen Angels, a reminder of a hot-take I made about a potential romance between Cyclops and Polaris - which facilitates a plug for our Weird Comics History - Twilight of the Superheroes coverage, and an endorsement for... Major X-Lapsed?!

X-Lapsed, Episode 47 - X-Men + Fantastic Four #1

October 23, 2020

Today we begin the story I've been looking forward to since we first saw the tense confrontation between Reed Richards and Scott Summers way back in House of X #1 (Episode 001 of this very program)!  Today we bear witness to the skirmish over "The Impossible Boy", the recently-rapidly-aged, Franklin Richards!

An Omega Level Mutant, Franklin would definitely be an asset for the growing mutant nation of Krakoa... there are just four things standing in the way. Also, our boy Franklin's powers are depleting with each use... wassupwitdat?  Hopefully we'll find out here!

Starting this miniseries, X-Lapsed is now officially on the road to our milestone fiftieth episode... a milestone only to me!

October 22, 2020

Today we wrap up our time at the Bohusk Farm... and, it gets far bloodier than you might imagine.  We learn a little bit more about the Cartel, DOX... and those creepy grey-skinned black-eyed children.

It's a good time as always... as we head toward the "landmark" fiftieth episode of X-Lapsed (can it really be a landmark, if I'm the only one that cares?  Don't answer that!)

X-Lapsed, Episode 45 - Fallen Angels #6

October 21, 2020

What is that blinding light?  It's as though we're at the end of a seemingly endless tunnel!  That's right, friends... today, it ends.  After this episode of X-Lapsed, we never have to (knock on wood) discuss another issue of Fallen Angels... ever again.

Crank up the orchestral soundtrack for your favorite Final Fantasy game, because we're about to see Psylocke battling a bona fide god... for, like a page or two.  Lotsa build-up... for very little payoff, but we'll do our best to have fun talking about it.

Also: A lookback at the entire Fallen Angels miniseries, including taking a peek at its surprisingly solid sales figures... and another X-Tended Mailbag segment, featuring missives from a pair of listeners who just finished HoXPoX for the first time!

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!!!

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

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...

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

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!

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...

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???

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!

Welcome friends, to a most deadly episode of X-Lapsed.  Today, we're covering X-Force #4, which turns out to be rather aptly named... considering how "Forced" much of this issue feels!

Featuring dialogue no human would ever say... and yet another fatal cliffhanger ending... it's safe to say that X-Force #4 is not my favorite post HoXPoX outing.  Please listen anyway!

Hooray!  Today's issue of Excalibur does not take place on Otherworld... but, is that enough to make me enjoy it?  Well, yeah... turns out it is!  Don't worry, Otherworld fans... it looks like it won't be a long respite.  I'll enjoy it while it's here.  Excalibur #4 sees our team officially get its charter... and introduces a jerk so smarmy he makes Pete Wisdom look like someone I wouldn't mind being stuck in an elevator with!

Also: Some great feedback, discussing more about the HoXPoX info-pages, an impassioned plug for the From Claremont to Claremont series of shows on this channel, and much more!

Today's issue of Marauders pays off the Taipei subplot from the first chapter, in a very fun way.  We also get some actual Post-Human sightings, and a weird blast from the past that I certainly wasn't expecting!  Also: Storm hammers a Brazilian Rent-a-Merc with lightning... twice!

Plus: Great listener mail, some chatter about DC Comics' Millennium, Cypher's role as a "heavy-hitter" in the post HoXPoX X-Books, and much more... well, maybe not "much" more... but, more nonetheless.

X-Lapsed, Episode 29 - X-Force #3

X-Lapsed, Episode 29 - X-Force #3

October 3, 2020

Well, that didn't take long, did it?

Ol' REDACTED has only been dead for like twenty-pages... and now they're back!  I guess that's just the world we're living in nowadays.  Not only that, but our new Court of Owls looking group of bad guys gets a name... Wolverine and Quentin Quire fight something out of Attack on Titan... and I furrow my brow as Jean Grey jokes about how often she's died.

X-Lapsed, Episode 28 - New Mutants #3

October 2, 2020

And now for something completely different!

While our main cast are still in spaaaaaaace, we're given a weird little story with some of Xorn's Special Class, Armor, and a whole bunch of Mutant-hating hillbillies.  Never have I ever been so disappointed not to see Deathbird!

Also: The concept of a cure-all in comics, a bit of my babbling about my academic career, and a whole lot more
