As we reach the 1/11th point of this massive crossover event, your humble host's barometer moves from "neutral" to "positive" - as what we get here is a wonderfully solid bit of storytelling that really amps up the threat... and includes something these books have been missing since the get-go: actual STAKES!

The Resurrection Protocols and yours truly have the same problem, and it's name is "Otherworld"!  We're gonna talk a LOT about that... as well as the Father-Daughter relationship between a couple of magnetic personalities, and much, much more!

Also - The always X-Cellent Mailbag!  Some great discussions to be had here - and I do so hope you'll join in on the fun!

Plus - The opportunity for you (yes, YOU) to guide the X-Men into their next phase... as Marvel.com is currently holding an election wherein WE the readers can choose the final member of the new X-Men team!  Vote runs from today until February 2!  Be sure your voice is heard -- and also, mebbe let your pal Chris know who you voted for!

That beeping sound you hear is a dump truck... backing up, about to drop about 5000 lbs. of exposition right on top of us - and, unfortunately, all we've got are these tiny li'l 5 lb. bags!

It's everything you wanted to know about Arakko... but never knew you were supposed to ask!  #EcksofTens can't come quick enough!
