I really hope that we move out of the faux 80s nostalgia stuff, with like Stranger Things, and into faux 90s nostalgia. Because then the'll be able to make a X-Statix movie

X-Statix first appeared in 2001. 2k nostalgia is still a long ways off, I'm afraid.

2001 is basically the nineties. Every decade culturally extends a couple years into the next one

I suppose so broadly, but as far as I'm concerned that precise moment in Marvel comics-- X-Statix, Morrisson's X-Men, Bendis on Daredevil, etc.-- was deliberately and pretty effectively a break with what came before it. If you compare the first page of New X-Men to the last page of Lobdell's brief fill-in run it's like falling asleep in one century and waking up in another. Say what you will about Joe Quesada's stewardship but he cleared a lot of brush, and the best of Marvel's 2000/2001 stuff (I'm including here Ultimate Spidey) feels much more like a tone-setting for the next decade rather than the dying throes of the previous one.

But that's your perspective from knowing about comics. From the perspective of a general person, MTV, Big Brother, Spice Girls, skateboarding, all that culture that X-Statix was drawing from, was the 90s. So if they make an X-Statix movie general audiences are gonna see it as a 90s throwback.

Thanks for reminding me I need to read X-Statix...I devoured the Slott Silver Surfer with Allred art on MU, but I think I probably will just cough up for the X-Statix Omnibus because I like reading physical more.

I was hoping for actual trenchant analysis of LGBT issues in Archie comics, especially focusing on Jughead's long hinted-at homosexuality/asexuality and Kevin Keller, but nope it is some high-larious out of context panels that may or may not have been photoshopped instead. Oh well.

Yeah but that's everyday for you. Every day you wake up hoping for actual trenchant analysis of social issues in Archie comics. Sometimes you get it, but you still have to be expecting disappointment by now.

It's a shame because I think Archie comics are pretty fascinating cultural artifacts, and I don't doubt that somebody with the wherewithal could write a really good paper or monograph about the function of queerness within Riverdale's ambivalently chaste sexual miasma, or even the reception of Archie in gay circles as a high camp artifact, but the internet is generally content to just, like, repost that "I had to beat off two guys" panel forever and ever.

Although, I mean, those panels are a big part of Archie's contemporary circulation as camp (see Kate Leth's commentary in the post Aaron Diaz reblogged), so I guess I shouldn't dismiss them out of hand.

ALLEZ-OUP!

This is only tangentially related to comics because it's by two guys who write for/about comics doing it and there is no shortage of comics analogies throughout, but:

If you like War Rocket Ajax, Chris Sims from that show and I have banded together to launch a new podcast called Apocrypals, in which the two of us discuss the Bible and its multitude of apocrypha in a non-linear fashion. The zero episode is up now, in which we discuss our backgrounds with religion and the Bible, such as getting punked by fake pizza parties and $50 bills and growing up in a haunted church.

Anyway, I'm aware that today is April 1, but this is not a prank, and we launched today because of Easter, not that other holiday going on today. We'll be back next week with our first regular episode about Acts of the Apostles. We're on iTunes etc, so maybe give it a listen if you're so inclined.

It's close. They're about 3/4ths done, then they're gonna do the ~50 episode live action series, and there was talk they might try the current manga-to-anime adaptation last depending on what's done of it.

No, I'm totally not a regular listener.

I listened to it up until they finished recapping the first season, then I sort of drifted away from it, because that's all I ever saw when I was a kid.

I might try leaping in on the current one because it's past where Chris has ever seen? And both guests and Jordan are learning on revisiting it that "oh man, the anime turned these generic villains skeezy as gently caress".

Also because all of them hate the horse-based plot.

Because if there's one thing the media loves more than fawning over Real America (tm)'s legions of gun-humping Trumpenvolk, it's reheated nostalgia for cheap Remember-The-90s pops.
