X-Lapsed, Episode 359 - Knights of X #2

One of those "good news, bad news" situations, wherein your humble host reports that he'd weathered a pretty horrifying health scare -- but, is now back to talk s'more about Otherworld... and Pop-Tarts! -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

X-Lapsed, Episode 358 - X-Men #11

Heyyy, anybody remember that whole Gameworld story that kicked off this volume?  Well, our creative team just did! The adjectiveless "flagship" of the line still meanders on... a victim of poor timing, and a certain Head of X abandoning ship when the waters got choppy.  Here's hoping "season two" of this title feels a bit more relevant than all this! Plus: Some great Mailbag! -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

X-Lapsed, Episode 357 - X-Force #28

The Hentai Helmet continues its rampage thru Krakoa... and the casualties are beginning to mount, including a couple of Silver Age Mutants!  Also, Wolverine gets a hangnail... and, no, I'm not kidding. Plus: By special request, your humble host dips back into his "Idiot's Guide to Comics Podcasting" to give some, perhaps harsh, advice regarding the need to become "podfamous". -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

X-Lapsed, Episode 356 - X-Men Red #2

It's the X-Men vs. the Brotherhood... fixed in a little different sort of way. Today the hearts and minds of the less-warrish Arakkii are contested for... and we get plenty of food for thought regarding the potential tempests in the Marsarakko teapot!  Plus, an attempt at correcting a continuity gaffe that your humble host hasn't been able to shut up about since it happened! I might rant a bit about attention to detail... and, how the fans who seem to care about things like continuity are usually mocked by the people who fail to adhere to it.  Please listen anyway!  -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

X-Lapsed, Episode 355 - Marauders #2

It's time for me to pull out the ol' X-Corp/X-Men Green disclaimer... today's book was one your idiot host did not enjoy.  If that fact threatens to ruin your day, feel free skipping this episode. It's more Shi'ar Sh...tuff, and yet another attempt at shoehorning even more ancient mutants into the X-Men lore.  No, not those ancient mutants... or even those ancient mutants... these are All-New, All-Different ancient mutants!  That is, until next month's ancient mutants. Also, we get a lot of obscure bits of Marvel history casually namedropped... the Marvel Wiki Randomizer was working overtime for this one! Plus: a brief mailbag segment. Again, this was not a book I cared for... so, if Chris being a negative nellie isn't what you're wanting to hear, feel free to skip this one! -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

X-Lapsed, Episode 354 - Immortal X-Men #2

Back to the Destiny of X flagship for another installment of Quiet Council intrigue! Note: There's a pretty long pre-ramble this time out, so for "Just the X", feel free to skip ahead to around the 25 minute mark. We've got another solid issue today, but one where there are some moments where I feel like we need to squint and tilt our head to make 'em "work".  Maybe I'm just an idiot?  You be the judge, dear listener! -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

The Collected X-Lapsed, Episode 34 - Reign of X, Volume 12

Marvel's finally decided to release the next volume of the Reign of X Anthologies! Darn those supply-chain issues, that DC Comics and all the indies have somehow been able to sidestep! Anyway, we're back -- and we're just in time for the Hellfire Gala! Oh, you didn't know? There's going to be a Gala! If only these books would bother to mention it! Since Marvel trade paperbacks are suffering the affects of shrinkflation (which we're surely only imagining), we only get the first five issues of the event here. Looks like the Gala will be eating up the next two collected editions as well! It's over four hours of fun, frivolity... Carnation Abominations, and a fake-ass vote to elect our new (already obsolete) X-Men! -- TIMESTAMPS: (00:00:00) Marauders #21: "You Are Cordially Invited to the Hellfire Gala" & "Out With the Old" (00:53:26) X-Force (vol.6) #20: "The Secret Garden" (01:34:26) Hellions #12: "Gatecrashing" (02:21:43) Excalibur (vol.4) #21: "Don't Feel Like Dancin" (03:24:32) X-Men (vol.5) #21: "The Beginning" -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

X-Lapsed, Episode 353 - Giant-Size X-Men: Thunderbird #1

A review gone neutral! Today's most challenging episode of X-Lapsed has your humble host stumbling and fumbling his way around sharing whether or not he liked this book!  We talk about some of the initial social media spoo and outrage this one invited, as well as how difficult it is to honestly analyze books like this without being lumped into the extreme ends of the argument!  It's a toughie! Also: A brief mailbag, wherein we talk a bit more about the "Nazarene Mutant", as well as my emotionally painful process as it pertained to walking away from the "daily grind" of comics content creation. As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts! -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

X-Lapsed, Episode 352 - New Mutants #25

After what feels like forever, it's New Mutants day again! We're kicking off the NuMu's first Destiny of X storyline, The Trials of Magik... which, as you might have guessed, takes us into Limbo.  You WILL believe that a SoulSword can shatter! Also: a sorta-kinda mailbag segment wherein I talk a fair amount about shill reviews and how difficult it is to find honest opinions about comics (and other things) on the internet.  It's a challenging discussion... and I'd love for you to be a part of it! -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

X-Lapsed, Episode 351 - Legion of X #1

Officially on the "Road to 400", today we're taking a look at the last ALL-NEW #DestinyofX offering, the follow-up to Way of X, which we enjoyed so much -- Legion of X! We'll be hitting some potentially problematic topics here... including discussions of faith, justice, and how we treat one another.  Also: A sorta-kinda mailbag segment, which facilitates my mind wandering down Comics History Lane, where I follow-up on our discussion regarding CGC Slabs last episode, exploring the concept of "comics as collectible", and how the industry & fandom "DNA" has changed in (relatively) recent years. It's a heavy episode, full'a heavy topics... and I'd love to have you "in" on the discussion! -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

X-Lapsed, Episode 350 - Wolverine #20

We've finally arrived... it's the landmark, milestone three hundred fiftieth episode of X-Lapsed!  That said, it should come as no shock to anyone that our focus today will be on Wolverine!  The Canucklehead never fails to pop up when it's a nice round number! We're taking Logan into the Destiny of X era, and a fun team-up with Deadpool.  Also: Curmudgeon Chris makes an appearance to complain about continuity errors, CGC slabs, and hashtag-x-spoilers!  Are you just as curmudgeonly as I am... or are you a bit more fun at parties?  I'd love to know!  Please share your thoughts! Huge thanks to everyone who has come along on this three hundred and fifty part journey with me.  I do not have the skill to put into words what it truly means to me! -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

On the Eve of Episode 350, we hop back into the (alleged) flagship of the line for, sadly, another unsatisfying soulless story (complete with forced flashback to the Hellfire Gala)!

X-Lapsed, Episode 348 - Sabretooth #3

As we continue our approach to 350, we hop back down into The Pit for a discussion on the nebulous nature of "law"... with a focus on the concept that some citizens are more "equal" than others. We go a bit into the weeds here, drawing (as vague as humanly possible) comparisons to the current real-world socio-political landscape, and talk about rules being implemented by those who aren't accountable to anybody. It's dicey, it's spicy... it's fence-ridey... it's X-Lapsed! -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

The Infinity Comics episodes tend to be a little bit shorter than their physical counterparts... so, this isn't a terribly long show... but, it still might be terrible! -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

X-Lapsed, Episode 336 - X Deaths of Wolverine #4

Back when we started down XLADOW (xladow) way, your humble host overused the term "batspit insane" to describe it... and, that was meant as a compliment.  With today's issue, the Lives and Deaths of Wolverine takes a turn... while still being completely batspit insane. We've got a lot to talk about... -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

X-Lapsed, Episode 335 - X-Men #9

Once again, talking about that book that feels stuck between two Eras of X!  This time out, we sit in on three meetings: one on Krakoa, one on Phobos, and one on Marsarakko... and, it's even less interesting than it sounds. But - Rogue and Sunfire actually show up in the book they're supposedly castmembers of... so there's that! -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

The Collected X-Lapsed, Episode 32 - Reign of X, Volume 10

This is one'a those "good news/bad news" situations... as, this anthology includes the first issue of the incredible Way of X series, buuuuuuuut it also kicks off X-Corp. Also, Gerry Duggan remembers that Storm is a part of the Marauders cast just long enough to throw her a going-away party!  Did you know, dear listener, that Storm is just as dangerous without her powers?  Well, if not -- ya will! Plus, with cancellation on the horizon X-Factor hits heavy truncation mode... doing its damnedest to get its story told... before the mystical axe comes swingin'! All'at, plus all my usual nonsense!  If you miss my content from a time where I was still delusional enough to think anybody actually wanted it -- the Collecteds are for you!  -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

X-Lapsed, Episode 334 - X Lives of Wolverine #4

XLADOW (xladow) rolls on, and today's issue is like a collection of current-year variant covers!  You want an Omega Reddified Wolverine?  We got one!  Howsabout a Venomized one?  We got that too!  This batspit-insane event keeps trudging forward... but, seems to be stubbing its toe on tropes with every step. And just you wait for the cliffhanger! -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen

X-Lapsed, Episode 333 - X Deaths of Wolverine #3

We're back over in the Moira-half of our event miniseries's's's... and this time, her heel-turn is in full swing!  Back in the long ago we'd refer to this as a "shoe drop" issue - In that Mighty Marvel Fashion: some'a the stuff we thought we knew... might not exactly be right... sorta. Plus: I talk s'more about how the original vision for Krakoa seems to have changed over the past couple of years.  Yes... still. -- Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/xlapsed X-Lapsed Voicemail: 623-396-5375 (or, 623-396-JERK) Twitter: @acecomics https://twitter.com/AceComics / Instagram: @90sxmen https://www.instagram.com/90sxmen/ weirdcomicshistory@gmail.com chrisandreggie.podbean.com https://chrisandreggie.podbean.com/ The All-New, All-Different chrisisoninfiniteearths.com https://www.chrisisoninfiniteearths.com/ facebook.com/groups/90sxmen https://www.facebook.com/groups/90sxmen
