And now for something completely different…

While the rest of the X-Family of books was undergoing a somewhat x-treme and hyper-posed makeover – across the pond, Excalibur was just plain weird.  With a rogues gallery that included the crazy Technet (including show-favorite Joyboy) and a bird-bomb Henery Hawk knockoff – and mysteries surrounding the interdimensional garbage can that is Widget’s dome – this title can’t help but to stand out as something special.

For this segment, I am joined by my friend Jesse (@stiznarkey), and we have a really good time x-ploring the other side of the X-Books!  Jesse also shares his life and times as an X-Fan!  It’s a great chat, we hope you’ll give us a shot!
