Chris and Reggie talk about old comic books and comics history every week!

    X-Lapsed, Episode 52 - Marauders #7

    X-Lapsed, Episode 52 - Marauders #7

    X-Lapsed goes back to business as usual, with a look at one of our core Dawn of X books - a rather transitional issue of Marauders.  Call Me Kate is still M.I.A., and the Hellfire Tots continue to put their plans in motion.
    All that, and I talk way too long about my adventures in Rio Verde, Arizona... while thanking the creative team for actually depicting an area of the state I live in as being something other than the setting for a Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner cartoon!
    Also: Some (wildly optimistic?) housekeeping... with an eye toward the next fifty-plus episodes of this program!

    X-Lapsed, Episode 51 - Giant-Size X-Men: Jean Grey + Emma Frost #1

    X-Lapsed, Episode 51 - Giant-Size X-Men: Jean Grey + Emma Frost #1

    Shh!!!  Psychic Podcast in Progress!
    Today we're taking a look at the (mostly) silent showcase of superstar artist, Russell Dauterman - Giant-Size X-Men: Jean Grey + Emma Frost!  I even pull some tricks out of the Weird Comics History drawer (and an old Previews catalogue from my closet) for this occasion, and do a bit of chatting about Marvel's 2001-2002 'Nuff Said! month!  It's a good time, and a great homage...
    Also: Some wonderful listener mail, which really made your humble host's day!

    X-Lapsed, Episode 50 - X-Men + Fantastic Four #4

    X-Lapsed, Episode 50 - X-Men + Fantastic Four #4

    Welcome, friends... to the landmark fiftieth episode of X-Lapsed!
    Today, I'm taking a page out of the Chris is on Infinite Earths playbook... where I spend about a half-hour getting a little personal about just why this milestone is so important to me personally.  For folks who are willing to indulge me, you have my gratitude!  For those who'd rather just hear me talk about the last issue of X-Men + Fantastic Four... no problem, we're still friends!  Just skip ahead to 29:32 and you'll miss all my spoo.
    As far as X-Men + Fantastic Four #4... well, it's a little bit uneven... but, we'll give it a goo, and have a good time doing it.
    Thank you to everyone for sharing their time with me over the course of this project so far.  I can't put into words what it means to me!

    X-Lapsed, Episode 49 - X-Men + Fantastic Four #3

    X-Lapsed, Episode 49 - X-Men + Fantastic Four #3

    In today's penultimate issue of X-Men + Fantastic Four, the stakes are upped once again!  Well, sorta.
    We're going to talk a lot about how the X-Men are being portrayed here... and any time they're pitted against, or sharing panel-space with, any other Marvel heroes.  Your humble host tires of seeing his favorite folks "jobbed out" and made to look lesser-than every Marvel character from Willie Lumpkin on up!
    We also talk a bit about Godpower... that is, if your host is understanding it right in the first place (please do not take a drink every time I say that...), and the fact that the Invisible Woman is THE MOST POWERFUL CHARACTER IN THE MARVEL UNIVERSE.
    It's a good time - and we're just one episode away from the regular-sized, nothin' happenin', non-celebratory 50th Episode of this little program~!  Thanks everybody!

    Learn Me The Legion, Episode 1 - Origin Stories & Adventure Comics #247

    Learn Me The Legion, Episode 1 - Origin Stories & Adventure Comics #247

    Welcome friends, to a whole new series - and part of the "New Fall Season" here at the channel.
    Longtime Legion-denier, Chris (@acecomics) looks to right the wrong of keeping DC's future-teen-heroes as a deliberate blind-spot in his comics knowledge... and to do so, he's found himself a friend to help him navigate this twisting and storied franchise.  Lifelong Legion fan, Al Sedano (@AdamThanosPod) has graciously agreed to educate and guide me to... maybe eventual Legion-relevance... or, at least maybe being able to identify a dozen or so of these characters on sight!
    For this first episode, we share our own Legion origins... or lack thereof, Al provides a brief overview of the franchise, and we start our coverage... well, at the start - with a look at Adventure Comics #247 from 1958!
    As this series progresses, we will be alternating between covering Legion stories, and focusing on prominent Legion characters, to try and get me up to speed.  If you're in need of some "Legion Learnin'", this might be the show for you!  If you're already a certified "Doctor of Legionomics"... well, you still might enjoy hearing how ignorant I am about the property you hold so dear!  Or, you can at least stick around long enough to hear how I ruined a really good song to make our theme music (apologies to Jarvis...)!
    Feedback is encouraged!  We invite you to write in and join us on this little audio journey!

    Major X-Lapsed, Episode 2 - Major X #2

    Major X-Lapsed, Episode 2 - Major X #2

    Because absolutely nobody demanded it...
    ... Major X-Lapsed returns with its second installment!
    Today, I have far less fun with Issue #2 of Major X... which, rather than remaining a fun retro romp through the early '90s - starts taking itself a bit too seriously.  We've got Atlantean politics to deal with... and that's just the beginning!  I don't know about y'all, but Atlanteans are right up there with the Inhumans in the list of characters I couldn't care less about!
    I'd love to hear everybody's thoughts on this series... good, bad, or indifferent - please don't hesitate to reach out!

Top notch comics podcasting

If you listen to comic book podcasts then you will love every single podcast in the Cosmic Treadmill catalog

One of the Best

Chris and Reggie's Cosmic Treadmill is one of the best podcast I have ever listened to. I am a huge comic book fan and lifetime collector. The amount of research and wide variety of topics that they cover is awesome. Are you interested in the history of comics from the Golden Age? Then you'll enjoy this podcast. Would you rather hear about modern comics or something from the Bronze Age? Then you'll enjoy this podcast. Two great guys who have a great rapport with each other. This is a entertaining podcast and informative.

Learn and Laugh

You know that class you had in college where you fell in love with a subject because your professor was so enthusiastic about it? That’s what this show is like. Chris and Reggie do DEEP dives into the comics of yesterday and today. They bring the research and the fun. And the crazy voices are the best. Seriously, listen to your new favorite show!
