Well, this is it. The end of "Girls' School from Heck" and the Claremont era of Excalibur. But we're going out with a bang and our pom-poms raised high, as Anna, Mav, and Andrew are joined by Dr. Julia Round, an expert in all things gothic and girls' comics, to talk exploitation vs character growth plus memories, hopes, and regrets in Excalibur #34, "School Spirit." In which the Fenris Twins prove they're no match for a motivated Phoebe Huntsman with a field hockey stick and Anna's job is easy because Nightcrawler's fur, fangs, and prehensile tail sell themselves to the teen girl demographic.
