As we reach the 1/11th point of this massive crossover event, your humble host's barometer moves from "neutral" to "positive" - as what we get here is a wonderfully solid bit of storytelling that really amps up the threat... and includes something these books have been missing since the get-go: actual STAKES!

The Resurrection Protocols and yours truly have the same problem, and it's name is "Otherworld"!  We're gonna talk a LOT about that... as well as the Father-Daughter relationship between a couple of magnetic personalities, and much, much more!

Also - The always X-Cellent Mailbag!  Some great discussions to be had here - and I do so hope you'll join in on the fun!

Plus - The opportunity for you (yes, YOU) to guide the X-Men into their next phase... as Marvel.com is currently holding an election wherein WE the readers can choose the final member of the new X-Men team!  Vote runs from today until February 2!  Be sure your voice is heard -- and also, mebbe let your pal Chris know who you voted for!

That beeping sound you hear is a dump truck... backing up, about to drop about 5000 lbs. of exposition right on top of us - and, unfortunately, all we've got are these tiny li'l 5 lb. bags!

It's everything you wanted to know about Arakko... but never knew you were supposed to ask!  #EcksofTens can't come quick enough!

After pressing through the "Countdown to", we're into the event miniseries proper!  It's an issue with a couple of casualties (one notable... one, less so)... as well as an introduction of a character who looms large in our current Dawn of X landscape!

We'll talk a lot (ie. project) about potential original plans for the original five... and what that might've meant for X-Men lore.  If the time-displaced crew were a) from the 616, and b) sent back to the past with the knowledge of everything that was yet to come... what might that have meant for our current-day continuity?

Could they have originally been intended as an in-story reboot mechanism for our mutant heroes?  Probably not... but, we're going to have fun playing "What if...?" anyway!

I'd love to hear (and share) your hot-takes on this issue as well.  If you've got any, please don't hesitate to send 'em in!

It's another one that I've been really looking forward to: Extermination - wherein we're going to find out where Kid Cable came from... and where the time-displaced Original Five went!  Well, that's the plan anyway... anything could happen!

But before all that, we're going to have to get to Extermination... you might say, we're going to have to Countdown to Extermination.  Today we're going to chat about the post AvX landscape which brought us to this point... and then the five "post credits sequences" that lead us into the event miniseries proper.  It's bound to be a good time - I hope you decide to come along!

In which Madelyne Pryor and your humble host share an x-istential crisis!  What does it mean to "exist"... what proof do you have that you did?  Wanna hear an idiot talk about it for a bit - go no further!  We also keep things half-assed "heavy" as we talk about the concept of transference, or "You have no idea how many times I refer to Kwannon as 'Betsy'!"

All that, plus our customary x-cellent mailbag!  It's a good time as always - I hope you'll join us!

When Kid Cable Met Deadpool (I think...)!

In today's issue and episode, Young Nate has to check in with the current King of Staten Island for some "body work".  It's far funnier than I'm making it sound, believe me.

Also: Some great listener mail, featuring two takes on the funeral and return of Call Me Kate in Marauders #11!  It's some great discussion - hope you'll decide to be a part of it!

From Claremont to Claremont, Episode 1a: X-Men (vol.2) #1 (1991)

From Claremont to Claremont: An X-Men Podcast
Episode 1A

X-Men (vol.2) #1 (October, 1991)

Cover Price: $3.95/$1.00

Due to popular demand (of a small handful of folks who expressed interest in listening to From Claremont to Claremont, but without the need to fill up their entire device with a 10-14 hour file), I've decided to keep up with our FCTC Segments -- starting with the big one, the Guinness World Record holding X-Men (vol.2) #1 (October, 1991).

For the new book, I'm joined by my friend Jody Yerdon (@regalfan) to discuss all the goings on in and out of the book.  Jody will also share with us his "Secret Origin" both regarding the X-Men and comics in general.

It's a fun conversation... I hope you decide to hop on board the #FCTCXMen train!

Happy New Year, Friends!  How's bout we celebrate by hitting up some dive bar in the Great White North with our titular hero?  Hopefully we don't inadvertently wind up stumbling into a meeting of an anti-mutant group!  Nah, nothing like 's gonna happen... right?  We'd probably wind up running into a coven of vampires first...
