This week we run through a TON of books, and as always run very long. In "On Shelves Now" we look at X-Men Legacy 212, Cable 4, XFactor 31, Gen NeXt 2, Young X-Men 3, and X-Force: Ain't No Dog.
In an un-traditional "Top 5", we list the top 5 things you never want to hear in the X-Mansion.
We present a very special "Retro Review", where we discuss Secret Wars!
As always we end things with a Fastball Special.
And in the process of all this we: rant about voicemails. offend Peter Rios, avoid stalkers on Facebook, and utilize a laughtrack.
Lastly, we apologize for the slightly off audio, we're trying to figure out the new version of Skype.

We start this episode off with a VERY special guest live on the X-Phone.
Then we work our way through a busload of new issues in On Shelves Now: Secret Invasion 3, Divided We Stand 2, X-Force 4, Uncanny 498, Giant Sized Astonishing X-Men 1, Colossus: Origins and Angel: Revelations followed by a long argument on fake vs pointless.
Next up, a look at the MANY X-Men September solicitations.
In Retro Reviews we dive further into New Mutants with issues 12 through 14, and also look at Uncanny 180.
And as always we finish things up with a fastball special.
This week we review Wolverine 64, Cable 3, GenNext 1, and X-Men Legacy 211.
We get former Marvel graphic designer (and friend of Brian's) Matty Ryan on the X-Phone!
And in Retro Reviews, Rob tries to follow New Mutants 10 and 11 better than last week while Brian talks about Uncanny X-Men 177 - 179.
And as always we finish with a Fastball Special.
