This week Leland is back to sit with Anthony to kick back and reflect on the year in comics.  Beginning with Secret Wars and dancing through the singing hills of Marvel these two geeks gush over their favorite books and what’s still to come.  It’s all good vibes until the DC talk started and things got real sad and bitter as they have yet to create a world that’s inviting for new fans… or some old fans.  Listen in as two friends of 16 years kick back and talk comic shop before getting to major news at the end of the podcast.

Comic Issues #248 – X-plosion!!

It’s an X-travaganza! It’s so X-citing! It’s the end of the Uncanny X-Men and the beginning of the Extraordinary X-Men!

This week the podcasting duo take a long look at the wrap up of Brian Michael Bendis’ X-Men stories. The good, the not as good, because it was never bad; Anthony and Elizabeth gush over the issue #600 and the revelations about Iceman, the reunion of Colossus and Magik, and the trial of Beast.  Then from Bendis’ ends to Jeff Lemire’s newest X-book, Extraordinary X-Men takes us further down the timeline and things are not looking good for mutants.

From the science of the x-gene to the magical world of the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange #2, also came out giving readers a tour of the Sanctum Sanctorum (it’s as crazy and amazing as you imagine it). Then move on to Bendis’ newest jam Invincible Iron Man #3 with the most impressive suit he’s ever had. Finally to ring in the holiday’s Elizabeth gives a rundown on Klaus #1, Grant Morrison’s re-imagining of Santa Claus.  Yup, Ol’ Saint Nick.
