We're not far into Chris Claremont's X-Men run and things are happening FAST: Storm and Jean Grey are best friends, the X-Men have gone on vacation for the second time in a year, the Sentinels are back and Marvel Girl becomes Phoneix? So much! We talk about: old comics' tendency to RUSH everything (on the team for 2 issues: best friends), the weird decisions to bring back lame villains from X-Men 1.0. But also there's the good: romance and passion, terrific writing -- like literal wordsmithing, great costumes, and fast-piling sub plots. And we answer email!
