While comics have always been political, we don’t always get as close an intersection between comics and politics as we got with the recent miniseries – House of X and Powers of X – that relaunched the X-Men line. Rather than continuing to “fight for a world that hates and fears them” from within human society, Professor X leads the X-Men to found their own nation-state for all mutants on the island of Krakoa. What follows is the struggle (using fair means and foul) to gain international recognition of that state’s independence, to construct a new culture and polity from formerly hostile groups of mutants, and steer the ship of state into the future.

Recently, I got together with Elana Levin and Chingey Le Gay to talk about all this and more over at Graphic Policy Radio.

Have a listen!
