Bizarro Back Issues: The X-Men, Pizza And Cyberspace, Together At Last (1993)

Hut01

When you consider that I'm spending a good portion of every week recapping the '90s X-Men cartoon, you might think that I'd have my fill of '90s mutant nostalgia, but that is definitely not the case. If anything, going back through that show has made me want to go back and revisit that stuff even more. That's why I went out a few days ago and grabbed one of the most treasured artifacts of my childhood: the four-part X-Men Collector's Edition comics released in 1993 and sold at Pizza Hut.

Seriously, you guys. There was a time in this country when you could go out and get a pizza and comic books about the X-Men jacking into cyberspace in the same building. If we want to make America great again, I suggest we start there.

Bizarro Back Issues: Every Issue Of ‘Punisher 2099′ Is The Craziest Issue Of ‘Punisher 2099′ (1994)

pun01

A few weeks ago at HeroesCon, I was going through quarter boxes when I found a run of Punisher 2099. I bought the whole thing as soon as I saw it, and while that might just sound like a normal comic-con impulse buy, keep in mind that I was so excited that I forgot I already owned a full run of Punisher 2099. Admittedly, that might say more about me than it does about these comics, but I don't really mind having extras, because Punisher 2099 is amazing. Seriously.

‘Youngblood’ vs. ‘WildC.A.T.s’ vs. ‘UltraForce’: Which Had The Most X-Treme Intro?

intro01

During the boom years of the early '90s, printed comics weren't the only medium that saw a sudden influx of new, extreme super-heroes. The influence of the popular Fox cartoon based on the X-Men was obvious in a second wave of knockoffs similar super-hero cartoons, from the fact that they were based on comics to their blatant attempts to capture the magic of that goofy, synth-heavy X-Men intro where dudes stood around blasting their powers at their own logos. Clearly, none of
