In Soviet Russia, trade wait for you!

Hey everybody, we're back fo(u)r another compilation episode... covering the third issues of the Dawn of X, Wave One launch titles - and it feels like, for some of these, the bloom is coming off the ol' rose.

Hordeculture?  The New Mutants Farm story?  Fallen Angels still being a thing?

The tonal shift here into attempts at comedy, a weird fill-in arc, and poetic waxing might be too severe for your humble host to take!

Questerdays, An EPIC ElfQuest Podcast, Episode 2 - ElfQuest #2 (1985)

Questerdays, An EPIC ElfQuest Podcast, Episode Two

ElfQuest #2 (September, 1985)
"Journey to Sorrow's End"
By Wendy & Richard Pini
Colors - Glynis Oliver (uncredited)
EPIC Editor - Archie Goodwin
Chief - Jim Shooter
Cover Price: $0.75 USD / $1 CAN


They've been through the desert on a wolf with no name...

After a long layoff, the Chris's's's are finally back to begin the the Quest of the Wolfriders in earnest!  This time out, our tiny heroes try and strike a deal with some crafty Trolls... and find themselves in quite a mess... stranded in a desert wasteland with absolutely nothing on the horizon.  It's a good thing Skywise has that hunk of rock he won't stop talking about!

Will our Elves make it to safety?  Will they keep banded together even in these most trying times?  Will Redlance (somehow) prove even more useless?  The answers to all those questions, and many many more lay within this episode!

Also: In our grand Morituri Mondays style, we go through the Bullpen Bulletins, chat up some notable ads... and go (relatively) deep on everything EPIC for the cover-month of September, 1985!

We hope you'll join us on the Quest!

Welcome back, Trade-Waiters!

For our third compilation/anthology episode - we're taking a look at the difficult second issues of each of our DoX launch books, in which they all sorta go their own way.  I gotta wonder, while incredibly convenient... was this a satisfying read if you were following along via the anthology trades?

Anyways, in the wake of the apparent assassination last time out, Krakoa is... well, I would say "high alert", but nah, they're all still dancing around that bonfire like nothing even happened.

The Summers's's's have an outing that introduces the Creepy Summoner, Betsy is Captain Britain, Call Me Kate gets coronated, the New Mutants annoy the Starjammers, Quentin Quire smells like Axe Bodyspray, and Fallen Angels... exists.

If these compilation episodes are the first time you're diving into the X-Lapsed Universe - I'd love to hear from you!

Generation X-Lapsed, Episode 09 - Generation X (vol.2) #9 (2018)

Cover Price: $3.99

In the FINAL issue of Generation X (vol.2), we deal with the fallout of Kid Krakoa's accidental rampage through the streets of New York City... where, evidently, the Police and Emergency Services are too disinterested in taking a look at themselves... because it's all being left to our lovable loser squad (and Quentin Quire)!

Also: Jubilee gives Jono one heck of an arm hickey...

Next Time Out - It's Marvel Legacy!

Due to popular request... of around three people, and with the understanding and appreciation that the high episode numbering of the X-Lapsed program might be a turn off to a perspective listener, I have decided to make things a little bit easier by starting the The Collected X-Lapsed initiative.

For this initial episode, we go all the way back to the first dozen episodes of X-Lapsed, where I had an eight hour conversation with myself about House of X and Powers of X.  I had a ton of theories, hot takes, and worries for the X-Future... as well as my own X-Past.

If you've been X-Lapsed curious, but weren't sure where to start... well, here it is!  If you're a longtime listener, this will hopefully make it easier to revisit should you ever be on a very long road trip with nothing else to do!

Picking up from where we left off (I think) over in King in Black: Marauders #1 (Episode 160 in the Archives!), we have some Avenging house-crashers show up at New York's Hellfire Club - and, as luck would have it - the Marauders are just about to pop in there themselves!

Only one more episode covering King in Black!

Something weird(er than usual) is going on in Krakoa - and it's all because of a certain formerly non-conformist Omega Mutant.

We're killing time til the Hellfire Gala - please do consider coming along!

*Pics or it didn't happen - with bonus points if it's All I Want For Christmas is You!
