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.
