A kind of all-over-the-place collection of post Ecks of Tens stories... the ongoings appear to be attempting to rediscover their own unique identities after being intertwined in Otherworld for the past several months.

And, once they actually appear to GET their footing... well, then we'll toss a wrench into the works when we begin building to the Hellfire Gala!

Ding-Dong, this book is done!

But, let's not get ahead of ourselves... we still need to discuss this final issue!  There's not a whole heckuva lot to it... and I spend most of the episode largely apologizing and agonizing over not liking it!

Agree?  Disagree?  Either way, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this series and respectfully discuss it further in future episodes!

Where's yer crown, King X-Lapsed?

Today your humble host is "workin' hurt", as the crown I had put in last week decided to pop out on me!  But, as we say... neither rain, nor sleet, nor X-Corp or dental trauma will keep us from our assigned X-Duties!

I guess it's a good thing we don't have a whole heckuva lot to talk about regarding today's issue... though, I do go on at length about the feeling that we're simply in "treading water" mode until the January retooling of the line!  Please listen anyway!
