Marvel by the Month

Pre-MCU Movie Night (w/Katie Proctor of Books With Pictures) - X-Men (2000)

Episode Summary

Happy Pride Month! We made it just under the wire! Our special guest for this episode is Katie Proctor, proprietress of Portland's own Books With Pictures, a comics shop designed from the ground up to be LGBTQ/POC/women/newbie-friendly and inviting to all (even old nerds like us). While we prep Season 4, Katie was kind enough to make time to talk about 2000's X-Men for the second of our pre-MCU Marvel movie bonus episodes. How does the film that relaunched the superhero blockbuster hold up? What didn't age quite as well? And what does happen to a toad when it gets hit by lightning? Listen and find out! We support the following organizations, and we hope that you will consider doing so as well: Black Resilience Fund TransActive Gender Project Q Center Outside In Basic Rights Oregon Visit Books With Pictures online at bookswithpictures.com or in person at 1401 SE Division St in Portland (open hours vary depending on proximity to apocalypse).
