Today we go shopping for islands with the Master of Magnetism.  We also see him have to escape out the back-end of a Kraken.  It's yet another installment of Giant-Size, that may as well have been any old issue of X-Men (vol.5)!

Also - A great mailbag segment, that facilitates my sharing some of my more obsessive collecting habits.

Today we wrap up our time in Terra Verde - home of the violent "veg"!

Guess what -- we also kill the same couple of characters who keep getting killed in these books!  Your humble host is growing more and more tired.  X-Force also loses a member - it's "moral compass" no less!

All that, and I talk a whole lot about creators having "skin in the game" during the mailbag portion - which I hope doesn't ruffle too many feathers!  It's a good time as always - hop aboard and join us!

Journey with me into the mind of a mania--er, reality warping mutant.

Today, the New Mutants take a walk on the wild side... with, Wildside in order to give "good dreams" to a scared little girl who might just destroy an entire country.  All that, plus our DOX Magazine subplot keeps bubbling away!

Also: An X-Tended Mailbag, full of great analysis and discussion!

Welcome to the landmark seventy-fifth episode of X-Lapsed - which, is also, as luck would have it our third monthiversary, having started this little journey back on September 1!

Today, we're dealing with altered realities, Otherworld, and That Weirdo Jamie Braddock - and, somehow - I managed to have a really good time with it!  I also talk a bunch about the "Protect and Survive" PSAs from the late 70s/early 80s a whole lot.

Plus - Our usual x-cellent mailbag section!

Today we usher in the double-digits era for our Wave One Dawn of X books... starting with Marauders!  This is also a notable issue for being the first DoX book to hit the shelves after the current pandemic set in.  Can it possibly live up to the x-pectations of the starving X-Fandom?  Well... I suppose your mileage may vary.

(middle bits originally from Wolverine (vol.2) #154-155 (September-October, 2000)

Six issues just wasn't enough, was it?  Anyone else up for another romp with the Major and M'Koy?  Well... uh, howsabout we spend this final episode of Major X-Lapsed talking about a two-part Wolverine story from the year 2000 instead?

That's right folks - we're spending all but eight pages of this $5 zero issue looking at a story that appeared in Wolverine (vol.2) #154-155 (September-October, 2000) - featuring characters who haven't been seen since!  As for those other eight pages... well, they might just cause an X-Istential crisis... we're going to meet a whole lotta bucketheads... who we'll probably (hopefully?) never see again.

Whatever the case - Major X-Lapsed is now complete... I want to humbly thank everybody who has hung on for this weird little seven-week sidebar!

Episode 3 of From Claremont to Claremont: An X-Men Podcast rolls on -- and goes off the beaten path, with our first look at a comic (prestige format dealie, actually) that isn't one of our regular monthlies!

This time out, I am joined by Mark Radulich (@MarkRadulich) to discuss one of Wolverine's many, many... many guest appearances.  It's a little ditty called Hearts of Darkness by Howard Mackie and John Romita, Jr.!

After going through the story cover-to-cover, we continue the FCTC Episode 3 "hook" where my co-host discusses the "Soundtrack of Their Life"!  Another very fun conversation... I hope you all decide to join us - and maybe even share your own personal "soundtrack"!
