Comic Tropes: X-Men Chris Claremont-isms (AKA Gin & Comics)

I grew up reading the X-Men (and related titles) in the 80s and 90s. Chris Claremont wrote the title for 16 years! He did so much to define the characters and give us some classic storylines. In this video, I take a look at his tropes – the dialog and situations he could be counted on to use. It involves reading an issue bought randomly and taking shots. I hope you have fun watching it.

    You should do one of these videos every day!

    I appreciate the sentiment but it would kill me. Maybe weekly if there’s enough interest. It just takes a lot of pre-planning and a LOT of editing time even though it’s fairly straight forward stuff. Thanks!

    Ha, yeah, I was mostly thinking about how much alcohol you would need to consume.

    Good video. I don’t remember that storyline at all, reading it way back when. But I do remember cringing every time I read “No quarter asked, none given”.
