Cosmic Treadmill, Episode 61: X-Factor #71 (1991)

Cosmic Treadmill, Episode 61:
X-Factor #71 (October, 1991)
"Cutting the Mustard"
Written by Peter David with Pencils by Larry Stroman
Hello! In this episode, our blorks Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) read a title that was effectively rebooted--without being renumbered! It's Peter David's and Larry Strohman's X-Factor #71, published by Marvel Comics in 1991! There's the usual creator bios, and enough X-Men backstory to help frame the issue being read. Then, they dive into the history of the X-Men, including some of Chris' personal reminiscences collecting the X-Men series! It's like attending a day of classes at the Xavier School for Gifted Children, without paying tuition!

Thanks to Jesse DeJong for the suggestion!

The Sun-Vet Mall... where Chris paid $5 for X-Factor #1 sometime during 1992.
He might have also paid $5 for a back-issue of Wizard Magazine... ahem.
