Hey Kids, Comics! Volume 2 Episode 32 – X-Men “Days Of Future Past”


Dateline:2013 – Micheal and Andrew delve into the physics of time travel and journey back and forth between today and 1980, bringing with them 2 of the finest comic books ever forged – Uncanny X-Men 141 and 142. They will inevitably meander onto other topics such as The Terminator, James Cameron, The Outer Limits, Harlen Ellison, Back To The Future and Andrew will confuse a past US President with a current day UK comedian. Their names are similar, all right! There is also a SPOILER FILLED discussion of Age Of Ultron (the comic not Avengers 2) somewhere you may want to avoid if you haven’t read that series.
