From Claremont to Claremont, Episode 1i - Wizard Magazine #2

February 27, 2021

In our final segment of From Claremont to Claremont, Episode 1 - I am joined by my friend Adam (@hojokoolander) from Wizards: The Podcast Guide to Comics (@WizardsComics) to discuss all the X-News that was fit to print back in Wizard: The Guide to Comics #2 (October, 1991).

In it, we'll look at the earliest sales charts for this era of X-Books, as well as some deep-diving on the Price Guide.  Most notable about this issue, however, is that it might just have been the first place where X-Fans learned that Chris Claremont was no longer going to be steering the line.  It's an awesome little time capsule, and we had a great time chatting it up!  We hope you join in on the conversation!

X-Lapsed, Episode 133 - Gwenpool Strikes Back #5

February 26, 2021

Wait... what?  What's a Gwenpool doing in our X-Lapsed?

I promise, friends, this will all make sense in the telling - as it has some wonderful and surprising Krakoan ramifications.  In fact, even taking the X-ness out of this series, this is a heckuva lot of fun... and is highly recommended by your humble host!

If you don't know Gwenpool... like I didn't... you're gonna wanna check this one out!

When are the X-Men not the X-Men?

Well, it looks like they haven't been since we started this little project... nice of them to finally let us know!  We're going to talk a lot about what it means to be an X-Man vs. what it means to be a Krakoan today.

Also, there's going to be a bit of sword-fighting... 

  • Apocalypse vs. Genesis

Plus: Our always x-cellent and x-citing mailbag, chock full of missives from our x-tended x-lapsed x-family!

In our penultimate episode, we take a look at the sort of underwhelming Cable "eulogy" issue... which features two stories.  First we follow Hope and Jean around the globe to shut down some safe houses... then we get a handful of pages reminding us what a devoted husband and father Cyclops was (and no, I'm not joking!).

It's a fun time as always - I sure hope you'll join us!

No matter what the year is, Wolverine's adventures could never be kept to the handful of titles he was being featured in... and so, Walt Kneeland (@waltkneeland) and I are including his Marvel Comics Present exploits as part of this project!

This time out, we're featuring all three MCP issues cover-dated October, 1991 - which see Wolverine's first tangles with Cyber and also features adventures from other X-Men (and X-Adjacents) Beast and Firestar!

We're getting closer and closer to the end of #EcksofTens... and hardly a battle has occurred!  You know what that means?  It's time to rapid-fire a Contest of Champions Montage... cue "You're the Best, Around" from The Karate Kid... and get ready!

Today our pre-fight Dinner Party truly commences... with all sorts of Otherworldly "delicacies" (if you enjoy eating beetles and unicorn meat, that is).  We also get to watch as our Arraki opponents continue to grow their newfound characters.  It's wonderful that they're finally giving us a reason to care about these upcoming bouts!

A great issue, packed with drama and comedy - and gives us plenty of interesting "food" for thought.

All that and we got some X-Cellent Mailbag!

Sooo... is Alpha Flight an X-Book?  Well, if you ask my pal Sean (@Sean42AZ) and I, yeah - it totally is!

If only we had a better issue to bring you to kick off our coverage... because, friends - this is a weird, uneven... and mostly "deck-clearing" endeavor to make way for next creative team!  We've got a Doctor Strange guest-appearance, lotsa "potty faces" and a highlight in the form of a Diamond Lil subplot being paid off.

Also: Sean shares with us his life and times as a comics and X-Fan - and sits in to rundown the October, 1991 Cool-O-Meter!  It's a great time, and I'm looking forward to more!  I hope you are as well.

Today's episode discusses a chapter of #EcksofTens comprised almost entirely of art we already saw and paid for just a month or two earlier.  It's the Creepy Summoner's History of Arrako... with a Genesis twist.

As always, there's great listener mail to help lighten the mood!

What better way to celebrate than cramming this over-sized issue with... a whole bunch of lists?  We'll see Kingdoms of Otherworld, both Fair and Foul... Swords of Arrako... Warriors of Arrako... Tarot Cards for the Krakoans... an ending we all saw coming - and, well - not much more.  Least it's pretty to look at!
