Wednesday Warriors – Episode #98 – Uncanny X-Force Spotlight

Episode 98

The Wednesday Warriors spotlight Marvel’s Uncanny X-Force series by Rick Remender. They debate if the series lives up to the hype or if the constant moral question of, “Is killing wrong?”, making the book too heavy handed. Wesley Warren guests on this episode to weigh in on the debate. Both Sean’s share their experience at the ever popular renaissance festival that includes exciting tales of jousting, mead and theories on how the renaissance festival might be the safest place to be during a zombie apocalypse. Bryton and Sean Leslie agree Northlanders #40 is a strong contender for best issue of the year. Sean L. also finds a welcome surprise in his closet that puts him a little closer into completing a foreign toy collection when he finds a Superman that looks like…Ronald Regan!?
