Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men, live with Greg Pak at the Rose City Comic Con

The podcast of the superfun Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men panel I did at the Rose City Comic Con has gone live! Check it out here!

Had a blast on that panel. Realized I’ve written a heck of a lot of X-Books over the years — X-Men Phoenix Endsong, X-Men Phoenix Warsong, Magneto Testament, Astonishing X-Men, X-Treme X-Men, Storm… even Alpha Flight with Fred Van Lente, which is kind of X-Adjacent. And we talked about a ton of those books! Especially Magneto and X-Treme X-Men.

Jay and Miles are very, very funny and the audience was incredible. Enjoy!
