House of X Book Club

Back in the day, we got together and read and talked about comic books, mainly the X-Men. Decades later, and not a lot has changed. We started at the very beginning, and are working our way through the X-Men from number one!

What If... Episode One

Saturday May 04, 2024

Saturday May 04, 2024

Greetings fellows comic book lovers! We have a very special episode for ya today! We are going to wrap our heads around one of our favorite concepts, the good ol' What If story! In this episode we turn to our fearless leader Rob to see what sort of alternate storylines he has come up with. And the best part about our What If stories is they won't be written into cannon in five years (we think)! So join us on a new adventure as we discuss "What If the X-Men defeated the Avengers!?!"

This is it kids! We are in the final stretch! Our seatbelts are fastened, our tray tables are in the upright position, and our pilot Rob has been drinking non-stop for four days!
In today's episode, we are talking about X-Men issues 65 and 66, the last two of the original run! There are artistic shenanigans afoot, and we get to see the Hulk's feet as well, if that is your thing! So you get the awesomest book club of a pod, and since you can see feet, no Liefeld Art! Double bonus!

Welcome Children of the Atom, to the penultimate episode of the first AGE OF X!!! We are going to look at two issues of X-Men that contain some awesome characters as well as some questionable choices, X-Men 63 and 64!
First up, more action in the Land that is Savage, with Ka-Zar and Zabu! Fun fact the Sade song from 1985 was originally titled "Sweetest Zabu!" Not really. I just made that up. BUT! He is in this book, along with all of the oddest teens of all!
Next up is X-Men 64, with the blazing hot Sunfire joining the lexicon! A complicated back story? Check! Anguished teenager? Check! Bossy Father figures? Check! Something tells me he's going to be around for quite some time! After he gets out of prison of course! Why did he go to prison? You'll have to listen in!

Welcome once again to the House of X Book Club We are going to take a peek at X-Men 61 and 62 in the  antepenultimate episode about the first age of X!
First up, the saucy Sauron saga stops here, and rather abruptly! Much like his namesake, things don't end well for our winged antagonist!
Then we travel once again to the Savage Land where a man with wavy WHITE HAIR (that will be important later) changes Angel's clothes while he is unconscious. Not creepy at all!

Welcome home HoXBC-ites! Where has the time gone. Are you eating enough, you look skinny. Drew! Make our pals some sammiches!
 
This week we are diving into two fantastic comics! First up is Doctor Strange 182. Like a cracked mirror of nonsense, this whole issue is Doctor Strange going the long way around to fill out a change of address form with the USPS. The Juggernaut shows up with all his undelivered mail, and chaos ensues! lower case 'c' chaos, not 'C'haos. They have not shown up in any of our reading yet.
Next in the tube we have X-Men #60! This is it! We are in the final stretch! In this issue, the most dino-tastic villain in X-History shows up and does what X-Men villains do, repent and walk slowly into the forest. Wait, not this time! Something different happens! What is that exactly? Stick around and find out!

Welcome back Clubbites! Boy are we glad to see you! Today we will be raising a barn on Drew's plot of land... no! We will be reading some X-Books! Specifically X-Men 58 & 59!
First up, the return of a Trask! Larry, son of Bolivar shows up and it's Sentinels 2, Sentinel Harder! But in a twist, Larry has a secret! Big hint, it's not a third nipple! The backup here is about Jean, and once again they come up short for the lady. 
 
Next is issue 59, The onslaught of the Sentinels continues. Not to be confused with Onslaught, whose appearance isn't for almost another 30 years! Or is it!?!  No more backups from here on out, because Jean got the shaft.

Welcome Blue Retrievers!

Sorry, just trying to dodge those pesky copyright laws! We have gathered you all here today to talk about the X-Men. From the very beginning! All our favorite mutants live on an island that is also alive and once tried to kill them. But fences have been mended, and things have been going pretty good for our genetically superior friends. But things have not always been all cocktails and polyamory for Cyclops and his pals. So we go back to the very beginning to see how we got to 2023. And we start 60 years ago! X-Men number one to be exact. Hear what we like, dislike, and what confuses Shane. Which is a lot.
