X-Lapsed, Episode 196 - X-Force #19

May 31, 2021

Wrapping up that pesky "Quentin Quire introspection arc", so we can make room for the HELLFIRE GALA!

Today we're going to talk more about mutant dupes, the question of memory as it pertains to tinkering with Cerebro Backups... and much, much more!

Great Mailbag, and - since it's Monday, our fairly brief "This Week in X-Stuffs" segment

May 30, 2021

In our penultimate outing with the lovable Loser Squad, we finally get to the scene that caused us to look at this book in the first place - the de-vamping and re-mutifying of Jubilation Lee!

We've got questions...

The Collected X-Lapsed, Episode 04 - Dawn of X, Volume 3

May 29, 2021

In Soviet Russia, trade wait for you!

Hey everybody, we're back fo(u)r another compilation episode... covering the third issues of the Dawn of X, Wave One launch titles - and it feels like, for some of these, the bloom is coming off the ol' rose.

Hordeculture?  The New Mutants Farm story?  Fallen Angels still being a thing?

The tonal shift here into attempts at comedy, a weird fill-in arc, and poetic waxing might be too severe for your humble host to take!

X-Lapsed, Episode 195 - Way of X #1

May 28, 2021

If you only listen to one episode of X-Lapsed today... this should be it!

Folks, we have finally arrived at Way of X... our first "shoe drop" issue in quite some time.  It reads like something straight out of our very own Mailbag, and I cannot wait for more!

Nightcrawler is our POV character... and I can't think of anyone better to question the fact that... nobody else seems to question the goings on around Krakoa!

Plus: X-Cellent Mailbag... including our first ever "Day and Date" missive covering the very issue we're discussing here today!

X-Lapsed, Episode 194 - S.W.O.R.D. #5

May 27, 2021

S.W.O.R.D. has done the impossible... made me feel sympathy for Fabian friggin' Cortez!  Today's episode features a Quiet Council pile-on on the poor former Acolyte... who is given the floor to make a plea, but is not even given a pair of boxers post bursting outta his goldball!

There's also some Snarkwar stuff... but ain't nobody got time for that!

Plus: Great Mailbag and chatting a bit about the INFERNO announcement!

Logan and Licia's Merry Chase thru Madripoor continues... and every merc worth their salt is hot on their trail - well, Deadpool shows up, anyway.

A fun issue that only makes me wish there were more hours in the day to devote to non-X comics!

Plus: Great Mailbag!

May 25, 2021

Anyone out there miss X-Men Unlimited?  No?  How 'bout I pretend you said 'Yes'?

Well, have I got the book for you!  In this "Just the X, ma'am" look at another issue of the Marvel's Voices anthology, we've got some very X-Men stories you'll swear you've already read... at least twice!

First, Domino talks about how lucky she is... then, Storm recruits a young troubled mutant.

All that, plus great Mailbag, and the X-Sales Chart from February, 2021!

Another day off the beaten X-Lapsed Path... and we're back in the Outlawed corner of the Marvel Universe taking a look at the last couple of issues of the recent Power Pack miniseries... which just so happens to feature Wolverine... and his super-secret supervillain twin brother we've never heard of before: Wolvermean!

It's a fun couple of issues!  I hope you'll tune in!

Also: Mailbag!  Sales Charts!  Marvel Unlimited!  On-Shelves!  Oh, my!

Questerdays: An EPIC ElfQuest Podcast, Episode 2 - ElfQuest #2 (9/85)

Questerdays: An EPIC ElfQuest Podcast, Episode 2 - ElfQuest #2 (9/85)

May 23, 2021
They've been through the desert on a wolf with no name...
 
After a long layoff, the Chris's's's are finally back to begin the the Quest of the Wolfriders in earnest!  This time out, our tiny heroes try and strike a deal with some crafty Trolls... and find themselves in quite a mess... stranded in a desert wasteland with absolutely nothing on the horizon.  It's a good thing Skywise has that hunk of rock he won't stop talking about!
 
Will our Elves make it to safety?  Will they keep banded together even in these most trying times?  Will Redlance (somehow) prove even more useless?  The answers to all those questions, and many many more lay within this episode!
 
Also: In our grand Morituri Mondays style, we go through the Bullpen Bulletins, chat up some notable ads... and go (relatively) deep on everything EPIC for the cover-month of September, 1985!
 
We hope you'll join us on the Quest!

The Collected X-Lapsed, Episode 03 - Dawn of X, Volume 2

May 22, 2021

Welcome back, Trade-Waiters!

For our third compilation/anthology episode - we're taking a look at the difficult second issues of each of our DoX launch books, in which they all sorta go their own way.  I gotta wonder, while incredibly convenient... was this a satisfying read if you were following along via the anthology trades?

Anyways, in the wake of the apparent assassination last time out, Krakoa is... well, I would say "high alert", but nah, they're all still dancing around that bonfire like nothing even happened.

The Summers's's's have an outing that introduces the Creepy Summoner, Betsy is Captain Britain, Call Me Kate gets coronated, the New Mutants annoy the Starjammers, Quentin Quire smells like Axe Bodyspray, and Fallen Angels... exists.

If these compilation episodes are the first time you're diving into the X-Lapsed Universe - I'd love to hear from you!
