This week we take a look at X-Men Legacy 208, X-Factor 29, Uncanny X-Men 496 and Cable 1.
We somehow turn a question into our podcast related death aftermath into our first March Madness tourney.
In retro reviews we look at Uncanny X-Men 168 - 171 and God Loves, Man Kills.
We also comment on the Marvel June solicitations, and finish up with a Fastball Special.

Some say this is the beginning of the end of the X-Cast. Other say if the episodes continue at three hours it IS the end of the X-Cast. But this is a very special week, so once again three hours of stuff.
We enter a Post-Messiah Complex world this week in On Shelves Now and review Uncanny X-Men 495, X-Factor 28, X-Force 1, and Wolverine 62.
And speaking of Wolverine, we get Jason Aaron on the X-Phone to talk about his arc on the book and his other work.
In a VERY special Retro Review to the X-Cast, Brian finally gets to his beloved New Mutants with the New Mutants graphic novel, and issues 1 - 4, along with Uncanny X-Men 167.
We take a look at a very full May solicitations for X-books, and introduce a new segment to the show - the Fastball Special!

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!
