In the wake of the assassinations of REDACTED, X-Force goes on the offensive to track down who might have been behind it.  What they find is something... well, pretty gross!  Join me as we take a trip to a most peculiar South Korean Printing Press.

Also: Conflicts between logic and faith in a universe as extraordinary as the one we're reading about, more threats of discussing the Alan Moore Captain Britain, more feedback on the Uncanny Lives of Moira X... and much more!

Whattaya get when you cross an X-Men comic with a sub-par D&D campaign? Uh, don't answer that.

Today we're discussing the second issue of Excalibur by Tini Howard and Marcus To... and, well... by no fault of the creators, this really isn't the sort of story that falls in your humble host's wheelhouse. Maybe I can be proven wrong... then again, maybe not.

Who's ready for more Summers family weirdness?

On this episode of X-Lapsed, we join Cyclops, Prestige, and Cable as they investigate a new island that just appeared on the horizon... we also get to see a kink... err, softer side of Krakoa.  X-Men (vol.5) #2 comes to us from Jonathan Hickman and Leinil Francis Yu, and was certainly not what I expected!

Some insightful (?) comics chat with a side of wonderful listener mail is waiting for you!

Morituri Mondays, Episode #30 - Strikeforce: Morituri #30 (6/89)

Morituri Mondays, Episode 30

Strikeforce: Morituri #30 (June, 1989)
"Getting It"
Writer - James D. Hudnall
Pencils - Mark Bagley
Inks - Carlos Garzon
Letters - Phil Felix
Colors - Max Scheele
Edits - Carl Potts
Chief - DeFalco
Cover Price: $1.50 USD / $2 CAN / 50p UK
On-Sale: February 7, 1989


Hello Friends,

Today's episode of Morituri Mondays is a special one that we couldn't wait to share!  Not only are we discussing the penultimate (monthly) issue of Strikeforce: Morituri, but we were granted a Q&A session with original Strikeforce: Morituri artist and co-creator, Brent Anderson!  The first half of those questions will be covered in this very episode!

But first, the Chris's go "Full Treadmill", providing a bio for Mr. Anderson from his earliest days in the fandom to when he took up the pencil for this very series.  Fans of Chris and Reggie's Cosmic Treadmill will hopefully fondly remember coverage of creator bios.

As for this issue we'll be discussing... it's another banger!  And, what's more, it opened up the opportunity for another Treadmillism to sneak its way back into the limelight... "The Hook" returns for a long-form discussion on some of the mysteries surrounding the death (?) of Elvis Presley!

It's a great time as always... made better by Brent!  We hope you enjoy, and will return for Part Two of the Q&A next episode!
