This week Rob and Brian review Emperor Vulcan 3 - 5, New Exiles 1, Wolverine Origins 20, and Astonishing 24.
We place X-Men in the roles of Scooby Doo in casting call, and get a visit on the X-Phone from our colorist of the year Brian Reber! To see some of Brian's work look here.
We also review the last pre-New Mutants comics of our retro review: X-Men Annual 6 and Uncanny X-Men 161 - 166.
Also just to warn everyone, because we were slow getting out an episode, this one is... EXTRA LONG! As if we aren't long winded enough, we somehow broke the
three hour barrier. We're not proud, and this won't happen again, but for now enjoy.
And one last thing... Lola... never send us an email question again. Please!

And in a review you will try to but never be able to forget, Rob gives his impressions of X-Men: First Class.
