  1. A bit of a late respose, but I’ve just listened to this episode and wanted to give props for the Scott Lobdell praise. I hear people slag of the 90’s X-Men constantly but I always thought that Lobdell’s work was top notch and had such a great sense of continuity without losing any kenetic energy to the stories. His run on Gen X with Bachelo was fantastic too!

  2. Happy to heap on the praise, Guy! Lobdell and Nicieza did some terrific cleanup work back in the 90’s. They took what was handed to them, and rolled with it.
