It’s San Diego Comic-Con Week and Chris and Chandler are bringing the thunder! First off, the podcast turned three years old on July 17th, marking another fantastic year of X-reading comics, speaking with outstanding guests and so much more. For SDCC, X-Reads Podcast will present the 3rd Annual X-Men Fandom Panel featuring talent from the X-Universe. AIPT covered the talent announcement, so go check it out! For the issue, they chose to tackle Giant-Size X-Men Annual #9 where Storm dons the mantle of Thor, because they attended the World Premiere of Thor: Love & Thunder. Hear their recap of all these activities on the episode before they dive into the issue that features lewks upon lewks and hijinks of the Uncanny X-Men and The New Mutants in Asgard.
Giant-Size X-Men Annual #9 was published in December 1985. That same month:
- Top film at the time: Rocky IV
- Top song at the time: “Broken Wings” by Mr. Mister
- The film The Color Purple premiered December 16th, 1985, famously starring Whoopie Goldberg.
- Several stars were born including Janelle Monae, Amanda Seyfried, Frankie Muniz, and Raven Symone.
