THIS IS X OF SWORDS — The Complete XOS OHOTMU
The X-Men: XOS OHOTMU (X-Men X Of Swords (pronounced “ten of swords”) Official Handbook Of The Marvel Universe edition) gave readers unique insight into what is, and, many times, isn’t expected reading for the X-Verse. First up: Nico, Jonah, & Evelyn tackle the classic Excalibur characters — from the lack of Brian in his own narrative, to the relationship driven Betsy pages, the team has a lot to say. Evelyn talks real about what it’s like to be a woman working in a comic shop and how the female character’s journeys frequently reflect that of the geek girl. Nico & Jonah pivot to Meggan before three of them sink into the long-missing-Moira who gets little more than an abridged reprinting of Powers Of X #1. From there, Matty, Kyle, & Nathan take us to Krakoa & The X-Men themselves as they look at the core of the title, alongside Broo, world’s cutest lil Brood. Then, the three of them posit what maybe in store for the future of the X-Men’s most favorite lovable weirdo, Cypher. Then, Josh & Arturo bring their rapidfire magic and welcome in newest member Robbie as the three examine the Great Captains (oh and Apoc). Whether its boggling at the exclusions for Logan, marveling at the amazing of Magik, questioning the future for Apocalypse, or just plain asking who the fuck Gorgon is, the team close out the OHOTMU OGs with a bang! All this, AND MUCH MORE, on an all-new X IS FOR PODCAST: THIS IS X OF SWORDS.
