Miles & Austin X-Plain the X-Men!

Art by David Wynne. Wanna buy the original? Drop him a line!

I recently had the opportunity to fill in for Jay on an episode of "Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men", and that episode is now available for listening/downloading! If you're not familiar with it, "X-Plain the X-Men" is basically an aural version of my X-aminations reviews, in which the hosts review issues of X-Men and the assorted spin-offs in chronological order, often featuring funny voices and recurring gags along with their cunning analysis.

In this week's episode, Mile and I revisit New Warriors #10 and #31, in which we discuss the nebulous nature of Tarot's power, lament the lack of justice for Butter Rum, and I get to rant about the ill-advised Nova Roma/"Allison Crestmere" retcon once again! Give it a listen, and if you do, let me know what you think!

Check out the episode here (links to download via various podcasting platforms are there as well).

Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men


  1. I stopped listening to "Jay and Miles" a while ago but I will DEFINITELY be downloading this one! Very excited!

  2. Once she started going into how each X-Men member is actually gay I stopped listening. It just became her soapbox for anything that does not agree with her line of thinking is bad and terrible. They blocked me on Twitter even though I've had no contact with them. They also loved Excalibur and going super in depth with those episodes and skipping over much of the early X-Force because she hated Rob. This was exactly opposite of what I was interested in. I don't know how Miles stood being around her for so many years. She constantly tells him if she thinks he is wrong and is really a grating personality.

    1. To be fair, Alan Davis' EXCALIBUR is vastly superior to Liefeld's X-FORCE, so it's tough for me to ding them wanting to spend more time on the former than the latter (and both hosts have come around on X-Force as Nicieza took over and made the book more "Graduate New Mutants", a sentiment I've espoused myself).


Comment. Please. Love it? Hate it? Am mildly indifferent to it? Let us know!
