Nothing Great, Nothing Terrible

Nothing Great, Nothing Terrible

September 28, 2019

Are these issues better than last time? Yeah!

Are they great? Meh..., but they aren't shit!

This episode Dan and Georgie plead for the Cross-time Caper to come to an end, enjoy the artwork in Exiles and wonder where it may be going, and praise Lobdell for his excellent Gen X writing, but pine for the return of Bachelo!!!

Bland as Balls

Bland as Balls

August 18, 2019

No guests this week, so it's just "meat and potatoes" Dan and Georgie coming to your earholes this episode! 

Is an embarrassment (and a bit embarrassment for the creative teams) of "riches" this week, but Dan and Georgie power through the issues and all of Claremont's enormous... prose. We do have some nice character moments between Morph and Nocturne, as well as Banshee and Emma, so not everything is terrible, it's just serviceable. And sometimes bland as balls...

🎶The Age of Dan and Georgie🎶

🎶The Age of Dan and Georgie🎶

June 9, 2019

Something feels different. We're in a similar but all too different Universe... It's the Age of Apocalypse. But stick close to Dan and Georgie, we'll lead you to the M'kraan crystal of freedom! Just promise you won't stomp us to death. Or drink us. Or put your tongue through our bellies. Or breath all over our velveteen fur... actually, we'd be totally up for that!

This week, the boys explore the next 4 issues of Generation X Generation Next, because that's the next logical place to go. They also recap the world of Age of Apocalypse as well as give a primer in Astonishing X-Men (Blink and Morph) and X-Calibre (Nightcrawler.)

It's a complete episode dip into the... EVERYVERSE! Age of Dan and Georgie!

It's Generation Next #1-4 (1995) Astonishing X-Men #1 (1995), and X-Calibre #1 (1995)

Georgie and Dan are here to help you get over your Endgame Hangover!

This week, the boys dive into an interesting, but problematic Excalibur issue, a LONG-AWAITED character piece in Exiles, and a story that gets to the core of what being an X-Man is in Generation X. If only the current Uncanny series was still telling stories like this...

Georgie and Dan are back with with a 3 hit combo! 

What happens when Excalibur drops the ball (by adding ALL of the word balloons)? The other books pick up the slack of course! Georgie may have had it up to here, but Dan brings it home with the most impassioned talk about artwork yet! Chris Bachalo, you might have a superfan on your hands...

Georgie and Dan are back, and they've brought goodies!

Children of a certain age didn't grow up with the New Mutants or the New X-Men. They were part of the 3rd Genesis! That's right, it's the Generation X Extravaganza! From the seeds of the Phalanx Covenant, a new team is born. Come meet Jubilee, Sync, Chamber, M, Husk, Penance, and a reborn Emma and Banshee as they try to combat the 90s!

This week, the boys cover:

Uncanny X-Men 316-318 (briefly), X-Men 36-37 (VERY briefly), and Generation X 1-2.  

And for those missing our Everyversal teams of Excalibur and Exiles, they'll be back next episode!

Georgie and Dan are back, to mourn the passing of one of the greats...

Exiles unexpectedly was resurrected in 2018 and expectedly (unfortunately) canceled in early 2019. Artistically astounding. Tonally superior. Wholeheartedly heartfelt. We're gonna miss you.

They also cover some WORDY Excalibur and a fairly good issue of Exiles from 2001. 

Plus, stay tuned to the end, when the boys announce what's to come and what you'll need to read in the future!
