With all the recent X-talk kicked off by the start of Jonathan Hickman's run, Mike & Greg thought it would be fun to dig this episode in particular out of the vault. It was originally broadcast on July 9, 2014.

The lads throw tradition to the wind by taking an in-depth look at two comics (or one, depending on your point of view) currently hitting shelves every other week: Brian Michael Bendis’ All-New and Uncanny X-Men.

Following his 8-year Avengers run, Bendis took a quick trip to 1964, picked up a few passengers, and showed up for All-New X-Men #1 with the original five Xavier students (Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Iceman, and Angel) in tow. This juxtaposition kicks off his X-Men tenure and is the gift that keeps on giving, both in terms of story momentum and reader guessing.

See what side of the issues raised the hosts fall on in this sprawling free-form discussion of both All-New and Uncanny X-Men up through "Battle of the Atom", where the Marvel Mutantverse finds itself decades after the foundational Claremont issues, and how good a pair of hands it finds itself in with Bendis.

This week brings another panel from the recently held HeroesCon in Charlotte, NC: a spotlight on Charles Vess and Bill Sienkiewicz! Two artists who, in a lot of ways, could not be more different. But over the course of this conversation it becomes clear they have much more common ground than one would see at first glance. The recording begins with them already talking shop and quickly segues into a slideshow of hand-picked material from Vess with commentary, followed by a more free-form discussion between the two. Definitely something for everyone in this episode!
