    Excalibur #121: “Friends Like These”

    Excalibur #121: “Friends Like These”

    This week, our silly podcast about a seventh-tier X-Men comic from 30 years ago is more deeply embroiled in contemporary geopolitical events than it has any right to be, as the team jets to Israel to hang (and quarrel) with its national superhero Sabra in Excalibur #121, “Friends Like These.” Scholar of comics and Jewish diasporas Gabrielle Lyle is here to help us navigate this tricky terrain, talking Jewish histories of superheroes and what superheroes gain or lose when they become explicit representatives of a nation.

This podcast is such a value add. Not only is it entertaining and illuminating itself, but it gives a reason to dive back into a re-read of the source material. I thought I read every Excalibur back in the day, but quickly I see that I missed issues along the way. Not this time!

Great companion to reading the series

Anna’s great appearance on Cerebro motivated me to finally read Excalibur and listen to Oh Gosh, Oh Golly, Oh Wow. And now I’m wondering what took me so long.

Excalibur is wonderful. And I love academic fan approach of the podcast. Thanks, team!

I look forward to it every week

Why did I wait so long to start listening? This has quickly become one of my favorite comics podcasts. The discussions are so thought provoking while still being very funny. Consistently great guests, too!
