Is it too late to turn back?

That’s right, folks… it’s a new day for Strikeforce: Morituri and Morituri Mondays.  Out with the old, and in with the new… for better or worse.  Gone are Peter B. Gillis and Brent Anderson… and in their place, James Hudnall and Huw Thomas.  Will it be too much of a shock for our systems to properly process?  We encourage you to tune in and find out!

Would it help if we told you there’ll be a full-grown man wearing a diaper for the entirety of the issue?  No?  Then forget we said anything…

Also: A discussion of What The–?!, a Pro-File of Editor Bobbie Chase, the Evolutionary War rolls on, Pitchforce: Morituri returns reimagining our favorite team as professional wrestlers, and much much more!
