Marking FIVE YEARS of daily discussions, reviews, blogs and/or pods at Chris is on Infinite Earths dot com!

Today's episode is another short one... but, it's action-packed.  Your humble host starts to get a feel for where this is headed - and is still having a lot of fun x-periencing and getting answers out of this event miniseries.

From Claremont to Claremont, Episode 1e - Excalibur #42

From Claremont to Claremont, Episode 1e - Excalibur #42

January 30, 2021

And now for something completely different...

While the rest of the X-Family of books was undergoing a somewhat x-treme and hyper-posed makeover - across the pond, Excalibur was just plain weird.  With a rogues gallery that included the crazy Technet (including show-favorite Joyboy) and a bird-bomb Henery Hawk knockoff - and mysteries surrounding the interdimensional garbage can that is Widget's dome - this title can't help but to stand out as something special.

For this segment, I am joined by my friend Jesse (@stiznarkey), and we have a really good time x-ploring the other side of the X-Books!  Jesse also shares his life and times as an X-Fan!  It's a great chat, we hope you'll give us a shot!

The Search for the Swords has begun -- and it's taking our titular hairy hero straight to Hell?  Well, I guess that's as good a place as any - but, to paraphrase from our theme song: "Well, how did we GET here?"

Will we get that answer?  Uhh... please listen anyway!

Also, the Mailbag is a'rockin!  We hope you join in on the discussion!

X-Lapsed, Episode 112 - X-Factor #4

January 28, 2021

As we reach the 1/11th point of this massive crossover event, your humble host's barometer moves from "neutral" to "positive" - as what we get here is a wonderfully solid bit of storytelling that really amps up the threat... and includes something these books have been missing since the get-go: actual STAKES!

The Resurrection Protocols and yours truly have the same problem, and it's name is "Otherworld"!  We're gonna talk a LOT about that... as well as the Father-Daughter relationship between a couple of magnetic personalities, and much, much more!

Also - The always X-Cellent Mailbag!  Some great discussions to be had here - and I do so hope you'll join in on the fun!

Plus - The opportunity for you (yes, YOU) to guide the X-Men into their next phase... as Marvel.com is currently holding an election wherein WE the readers can choose the final member of the new X-Men team!  Vote runs from today until February 2!  Be sure your voice is heard -- and also, mebbe let your pal Chris know who you voted for!

The moment has finally arrived, friends - we have reached... #EcksofTens!  I hope we survive the x-perience...

Plus - The opportunity for you (yes, YOU) to guide the X-Men into their next phase... as Marvel.com is currently holding an election wherein WE the readers can choose the final member of the new X-Men team!  Vote runs from today until February 2!  Be sure your voice is heard -- and also, mebbe let your pal Chris know who you voted for!

X-Lapsed, Episode 110 - X-Men: Free Comic Book Day 2020

January 26, 2021

We're on the Eve of #EcksofTens... and, we're about to be taken to school.  It's time to look at the Dawn of X offering for 2020's Free Comic Book Day... which, leads to your humble host angrily shaking his fist at the clouds about how halfhearted and throwaway so many FCBD issues are!  The one we're covering today is... well, it's something.  We'll do our best!

Also: More X-Cellent (and X-istential) Listener Mail!

X-Lapsed, Episode 109 - Juggernaut #1

January 25, 2021

Today's episode of X-Lapsed takes us a bit off the beaten path inasfar as our Dawn of X coverage has gone... and right into your humble host's own personal X-Fan wheelhouse!  Today's issue was written by Fabian Nicieza, who loomed large in the X-Braintrust when I was just finding my footing in the franchise... and who really informed my take on what the X-Men are.  Mr. Nicieza is also, in a roundabout way, responsible for my becoming pals with a real good buddy of mine - and I'll tell ya how today!

Also: More Mailbag - and some Ecks of Tens housekeeping!

Extermination rolls on, and we're down another time-displaced original X-Man!  What'll happen when our Amalgamated X-Men Color-Guard and Adjacents realize that Ahab isn't the only threat on their radar?  And what might happen if our heroes have a Hound Sleeper Agent among them?  Give a listen and find out (some of the answers)!

That beeping sound you hear is a dump truck... backing up, about to drop about 5000 lbs. of exposition right on top of us - and, unfortunately, all we've got are these tiny li'l 5 lb. bags!

It's everything you wanted to know about Arakko... but never knew you were supposed to ask!  #EcksofTens can't come quick enough!
