A Must for Fans of the X-Men

This podcast is exactly what I needed, to walk me down memory lane, to when I collected the X-Men in the late 80s into the 90’s and it is catching me up on everything thing I have missed. I eventually stopped because I just couldn’t keep up with all the branching X-Men titles. This podcast fills in all the gaps and untangles the insane, convoluted story lines and retcons, and gives you a nice, easily digestible X-Men saga. I only started it a few months ago and I am methodically trying to catch up the current podcasts. Well only about a 160 more to go. 😂 It also has renewed my interest in collecting comic books and is a good guide of where jump back in.

I Love This Podcast

This is a great podcast. I'm a long time X-Fan & I love these deep dices into sometimes obscure continuity. X-Men for life! Jay & Myles rule!

Important 2 Me Personally

I got more into the X-men because of this podcast and as a result discovered more about myself personally. Jay and Miles have been such a constant in my life even though we’ve never met. Also I like how coherent the narrative tale they weave is. Nice.
