Hey folks! In this episode of Reggie's Comics Stories, continuing our look at the habit and hobby of collecting, we talk about collecting as a group, and talk to Jeremiah Jones-Goldstein, who has been collecting with his brother for decades! Reggie also talks about his experience collecting alongside his sibling, which was not as chummy. Check out the episode, and keep those stories coming!

Morituri Mondays, Episode 5 - Strikeforce: Morituri #5 (4/87)

Mori-Tuesday?  Sure, why not!
A day late, and a dollar short... Morituri Mondays is at it again, and this time out our team of heroes are in mourning... the lovely Lorna wound up succumbing to the strain of the Morituri Process!  The crew doesn't get to mourn for long however, as the Horde has chosen just this moment to invade the hearts, minds, and skin of suburban Illinois!  Will the team be able to fight through the paranoia of propaganda... or will they lose yet another member?!
Also: Fun with Accents!  Hivemind Mentalities!  A Smarties Update!  Selling Prizes for Cash!  The final two parts of Gumby and Pokey in Gum-Dinger Land!

ReMarvel, Episode 3: X-Men (vol.2) #45 (1995)

There are many times in the life and times of a comics enthusiast where walking away might be smartest option.  Naturally, as comics enthusiasts, very seldom do we actually do so!  Today, I'm going to share the story of the first time I ever "walked away".  All that, and we get to go through a pretty great issue of X-Men!
The concept of "walking away" is one I'm very interested in as a fan... and I would love to hear any stories you might have about times in which you might have stopped collecting or reading... why you finally pulled that trigger... and, since we're all still comics enthusiasts: what brought you back?

Chris is on Infinite Earths, Episode #32: Superman & Me / Me & Superman

Hey Gang... got something a little bit different this week.
Instead of discussing a single issue, I've decided to go "off the cuff" and share my life and times as a Superman Fan!  From my humble and wide-eyed speculatory beginnings, through times wherein I walked away from the character completely... to my many returns.  We're talkin' Death & Return, Electric Blue, City of Tomorrow, the post-Infinite Crisis "nebulous interim", Secret Origin, New Krypton... and yes, even Grounded, the New-52!... through Rebirth and back again!
Are you a Superman fan?  I'd love to hear all about your fandom!  When/how you started... times you left... what brought you back, and how it all turned out!

Morituri Mondays, Episode 4 - Strikeforce: Morituri #4 (3/87)

T.G.I.M. ... is probably what nobody thought as they hurled their alarm clock into the wall this morning... but, we'd like to hope that our journey through Marvel Earth-1287 puts a little spring into your step as you embark upon a brand new week... so full of possibilities!  And if not, you can still say to yourself, "At least I'm not Harold!"
This time out, Chris and Chris (@Charlton_Hero @acecomics) join our team of Super-Celebs as they take in the adulation of their adoring public... it's a "Media Bash" for Strikeforce: Morituri... their own line of comics, their own set of home videos... moy-chandizing, moy-chandizing!  Their party, however, might just be crashed by the Horde looking to even the score from their defeat last issue!  It's a party... not everyone is guaranteed to survive!

Cosmic Treadmill ep. 144 - Uncanny X-Men #287 (1992)

Greetings, fellow mutants! In this episode, time-displaced soothsayers Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) look at one of the longest-running (and now, solved) X-Mysteries when they read Uncanny X-Men #287 by Jim Lee, Scott Lobdell, and John Romita Jr., beginning the "X-Traitor" story line that ran for several years! After explaining the unusual conditions of the X-Men editorial office at the time, and providing biographical information on the key creators involved, our mutant mavericks read every page of the issue at hand. Then, they delve even further into "X-Traitor," reading some fan mail and commentary from pertinent Marvel Comics staff members, and even following the mystery to its stunning conclusion! It's time-traveling fun, you don't want to miss it!

ReMarvel, Episode 2: X-Men (vol.2) #8 (1992)

Hello Fellow Hunters!
This time out, I reminisce over my first-ever comics "white whale" as I discuss X-Men (vol.2) #8!  Before hopping into the issue proper, we talk about where I started as a fan of the X-Men family of titles, how different the comic collector's journey looked for a kid growing up in the early-1990's, and how a love of lore turned into a life-long relationship with this particular franchise!  Also, looking for Betamax tapes in Satanic Bookstores?  Trust me, it all fits... sorta!
