This week we're trying something a little different. Generally we put our X-Phone segment into a regular episode which leads to the following:
1. A three hour episode
2. Us half awake for the last hour of said episode
3. Rob wanting to hang himself a halfway through editing the episode
So we've decided since the X-Phones are generally about an hour long, we'd release them as standalone episodes. Hopefully nobody minds this format change, but if you do... well... tough. :)
This week we've got on IDW Publishing Senior Editor Andy Schmidt. You may ask yourself, what the heck does IDW have to do with the X-Cast? Well, Andy edited the X-Men over at Marvel for about five years. That's what! We talk with Andy about his days with the X-Men, dealing with the "where's Kitty Pryde??" problem, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Peter David and Fallen Angel, friend of the show and artistic genius Robert Atkins, and a bunch of other editorial-esque stuff. Hope you enjoy and we'll be back with a regular episode soon!

With Brian seemingly free of the Legacy Virus, we finally get to reviewing Astonishing 29, Cable 10, the X-Men World's Apart mini, Legacy 220, X-Men Annual 2, and X-Factor 39.
We get a VERY special treat in Inside the Mansion as our mystery guest does his own Inside the Mansion, much to Brian's chagrin.
And in Retro Reviews we look at Uncanny 197-199 and New Mutants 32 - 34.
And we finish with an action packed Fastball Special with topics ranging from back hair to circumcision.

In this episode we catch back up in On Shelves Now, reviewing:
Young X-Men 9, Ghost Boxes 2, Cable 9, Wolverine 70, X-Force 10, and X-Infernus 2.
Next we try out a new segment - X-Men Roleplay - where Brian and Rob surprise each other with 3 questions for X-Men characters, creators, etc. and the other roleplays that character answering. Hilarity clearly ensues.
In Retro Reviews we have an... interesting... week with Secret Wars 2: 2 - 4, and X-Men Alpha Flight 1 & 2.
And we wrap things up with a Fastball Special.
