Destiny of X: New Comics for Aug 3 - X-Men Red #5, Immortal X-Men #5, Legion of X #4 and X-Men 92 #4

August 5, 2022

Be still my artificial heart, what a roller coaster of emotions! So much epic destruction and battle. Starting off with 92 of Swords, the barely classic crossover is re-imagined, boiling down to just one issue of sweet 90s goodness. Things are getting intense in the Legion as Nightcrawler and Zsen dive deep into their philosophies and Kurt's bed. Immortal X-Men continues our meditations of philosophy and religion in the Krakoan Era. Pope Exodus will see you now. Then, the hour of intensity that was teased, X-Men Red shows us just went down on Arakko with Uranos... woof. Also, Doug's a liar and X-Men Green are playing literally everyone. We talk X-Men '92 #4, Legion of X #4, Immortal X-Men #5, X-Men Red #5 and Infinity Comics

1990’s Throwback! New Comics for July 27 - Gambit #1 and Wolverine: Patch #4

July 28, 2022

Where have all the Krakoans gone!? Too soon...  Marvel is taking a rest week from the current era and serving up a double dose of 90's nostalgia. The SNIKTs be slicing in Patch's penultimate issue. A whole lot of double crossing and epic adamantium justice. Then we team up with Gambit and Storm in an unseen tale on the streets of Cairo... Illinois. This issue was a ton of surprising fun with great character beats. Looking forward to more! We do get a quick Krakoan scroller with X-Men Unlimited, setting up a lot of context for what's bubbling up. Look out for next issue.  We also talk Spider-Man and how it might lead into his crossover with Wolverine and Justin has indeed finished his reading assignment with Eternals, giving a high level on the ancient society. We talk Gambit #1, Wolverine: Patch #4, Infinity Comics and a bunch of stray ideas

Thanks for listening to our twenty second episode of Season 4! We're in a time warp! Claremont and Hama are spinning tales of the top fan favorites.

Destiny of X: New Comics for July 20 - Judgment Day #1 and Knights of X #4

July 22, 2022

Our judgment has begun! And it is most certainly worthy. Things are heating up as the Knights of X press further into the depths of Otherworld. Welcome to your own personal hell. Askani is the MVP of this issue, ready to save her and all of us! Onto the impending Judgment. The all out epic kicks off with layers of intensity. Druig's plan is coming into focus, but is it too late? Can the mutants preserve their new found ways of life? If you were on the fence of whether or not Judgment Day would be crucial for the mutant story, hopefully this answers your question. Then in X-Men Unlimited, a team up clean up as a new style of Marauders merged with New Mutants saves the day from the destruction of X-Men Green. X-Men Red Cross? We talk Knights of X #4, Judgment Day #1 and X-Men Unlimited

July 14, 2022

It's all about our Queen! And the evil schemes building around her... can she keep the ship afloat? The big day is finally here after all that planning, but someone had to go and the Hellfire Gala with a big surprise of their own. Smooth move Cyke! But resurrection isn't the only thing to worry about, as there are party crashers left and right. Immortal X-Men picks up immediately after and around the Gala, a great one-two punch of story that builds off of the aftermath and new information.
