Panel Perfect #16: House of X Part 2

EWelcome back, loyal listeners, for Part 2 of our astonishing X-Men X-Travaganza with guest Granison Crawford! (A Phrasing we simply couldn't resist.) We'll cut right to the chase here, contained in this amazing episode: - Why are the X-Men all hot? - What is it about the X-Men that keeps people coming back? Is it the characters, the themes, or Max's theory that every book's "weird factor" keeps things fresh? - Seriously, why aren't there Mutant models? Beast worries more about being blue and furry than any real issues. - What mutant power would you have? (And why some popular choices would probably suck.) That's it for now, folks! We'll be taking another short break as we prep the next few episodes, but Panel Perfect will return! Until then, keep being awesome, folks!

Panel Perfect #15: House of X (w/ Granison Crawford)

EGreetings, true believers! Welcome back to another edition of the electrifying piece of entertainment that we call Panel Perfect. This week, Max and Alex welcome Granison Crawford onto the show to discuss the superhero series everyone's talking about, House of X! (And it's follow up, Dawn of X). Contained this installment: - If the Marvel Universe can cure Vampires, is Blade out of a job? - What about Jonathan Hickman's writing style makes his X-Men books so refreshing? - Seriously though, does Blade have a union, and how powerful is it? - With the X-Men forming their own nation, how does House of X explore their relationship to the rest of the world? - Does Blade have to lobby for Vampire rights? There's too many questions here. - What is it about the X-Men that keeps people coming back to their wonderfully weird corner of the universe? This discussion was actually so long and lively we turned into a double episode! Stay Tuned for Part 2 next week! See you there, folks!
