e110. Comic Studies-350: X-Men Course Syllabus

Way back on episode 23 we did our first syllabus episode. We got a bunch of comic scholars together and asked the question “if we wanted to teach a class about comics and graphic novels, from scratch, what would be on it?” One of the ideas we had back then was “what if we wanted to do something more specific. How about a comics class based on a specific comic property. Well, we decided this would be a good week to try it out. And why not start with one of the most popular comic series of all time. Marvel Comics’ X-Men? On this week’s supersized episode, Mav and Wayne are joined by an all-star cast of returning guests — Chris Gavaler, Caitlyn Hunter, and Anna Peppard — to work through some of the greatest, most important or most relevant X-men stories of all time. What should be taught in an X-men class and why? Give it a listen, let us know what you’ve read and what we’ve missed and if we’ve turned you on to something you want to give a try.

  1. Haven’t listened yet, but one I love that’s not always on these types of lists (the others I’d name are all obvious) is Fatal Attractions, especially X-Men v2, #25. I also really liked the Phalanx Covenant.
