As Mentioned in Episode 270 – X-Ray Goggles and Mail-Order Lizards (feat. Steve Stokes) October 27, 2019 Miles 3 comments Listen to the episode here! Art by David Wynne. Wanna buy the original? Drop him a line! Imagine this, but with scissor-cut holes where the monsters used to be. (Fantastic Four #12) DOOM DISAPPROVES! Yep, Bill Sienkiewicz still has it. (New Mutants: War Children #1) And Steve Ditko? Well, he always had it. (Strange Tales #??) And thus began the debate which continues to this day: who would win in a fight? (It was a tie.) (Fantastic Four #12) Guaranteed live delivery? Thank that one guy from Sarasota! That’s right, Fin Fang Foom predates most of the Marvel Universe. AS HE SHOULD. (Strange Tales #89) Miles, his partner Anna, Steve, and his wife Lilly! NEXT EPISODE: The Phalanx Covenant (finally) begins!

Miles, listening to you and your father talk comics was so wonderful. My dad and I have had a shared love for sci-fi (only the rarest moments have been comics) and it’s been the bond that’s kept us talking. I appreciated your dad’s desire for diversity and inclusivity in what he reads. I have also appreciated, over the years, both yourself and Jay’s commentary on representation. I can’t wait for the, hopefully, inevitable episode with Jay and their mother’s episode together (maybe to discuss the cosplay process of becoming Cable). Thanks guys!!!
This was a delight. Fin Fang Foom being mentioned is an opportunity to say he’s my second favourite of the Kirby/Lee ‘golem’ monsters. Any monster who deters tyranny from acting oppressively, especially when a savant of some kind plays a part in the monster taking action qualifies as a golem for me.
I finally got caught up on all the episodes and this one is one of my absolute favorites.
In fact, I would love it if, in future episodes where you look at current X-Men comics, you could have Steve back as a guest.
