Cosmic Treadmill ep. 145 - Logan's Run (1977)


Hello, Runners! In this episode, dystopian love slaves Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) examine the future world of hedonism and group suicide when they read Marvel Comics' Logan's Run #6, written by John Warner and drawn by Tom Sutton and Terry Austin! After discussing the film that this series initially adapted, they dive right into the first comic book after that five-issue adaptation that was meant to continue the story, despite the wishes of the movie studio. And while they're at it, our New-You patrons divulge the plot of the seventh and final issue. They talk about why this series was so quickly truncated, then talk about the original novel by William F. Nolan, and the many adaptations and incarnations that resulted over the years. You'll need your running shoes for this one, don't miss it!

Morituri Mondays, Episode 9 - Strikeforce: Morituri #9 (8/87)


Greetings, fellow Weekday Warriors!
Morituri Mondays is back, and we're primed to take a look at the ninth issue of Strikeforce: Morituri.  After a touching reunion with a feared-dead friend, our team has a pizza party and eventually breaks every rule in the book in order to once again try and protect a certain chocolate factory!
Speaking of chocolate... today Chris and Chris conduct a most scientific challenge ever attempted.  It is the great M&Ms vs. Smarties Challenge!  Canadian Chris has American Chris try the candy of his homeland... and challenges him to "pick a side" in the bite-sized candy Civil War!  It's a story of tragedy, triumph... and cheating on a diet!  We challenge y'all to also chime in on your preferred rainbow-colored, melts in your mouth not in your hand type things!
Also: Plenty of back-matter nonsense!  A Letters Page!  Bullpen Bulletins!  A Pro-File on one of the Fifty Most Eligible Bachelors in America (according to Playgirl Magazine)!  And much, much more!  It's a great time as always, give it a listen!

All that, and we also tell you how you can become:

ReMarvel, Episode 6: The X-Men & Me / Me & the X-Men


What's happenin', mutants?
Today I go off-the-cuff and share my life and times as an X-Fan.  From the gimmicky nineties, through the event-heavy aughts, and into the reboot-heavy present.  Up until a few years ago, the X-Men have always been a "comfort food" for me... and I'm doing my darnedest to get that feeling back!All that, and some news about the future of the show!
Note: If you're a regular listener, the first 5-10 minutes will be bits of stories you've likely already heard... at least once!
