Today our pre-fight Dinner Party truly commences... with all sorts of Otherworldly "delicacies" (if you enjoy eating beetles and unicorn meat, that is).  We also get to watch as our Arraki opponents continue to grow their newfound characters.  It's wonderful that they're finally giving us a reason to care about these upcoming bouts!

A great issue, packed with drama and comedy - and gives us plenty of interesting "food" for thought.

If only we had a better issue to bring you to kick off our coverage... because, friends - this is a weird, uneven... and mostly "deck-clearing" endeavor to make way for next creative team!  We've got a Doctor Strange guest-appearance, lotsa "potty faces" and a highlight in the form of a Diamond Lil subplot being paid off.

Also: Sean shares with us his life and times as a comics and X-Fan - and sits in to rundown the October, 1991 Cool-O-Meter!  It's a great time, and I'm looking forward to more!  I hope you are as well.

The #EcksofTens sword-hunt continues... this time taking Storm (and us) to Wakanda for the Skybreaker.  It's a story of sorta-kinda political intrigue - where the very valid question of Krakoan "ethnocentrism" is raised.  We'll definitely be talking about that!

Also: Our always X-Cellent and thought-provoking Mailbag... in X-Tended form!

Wolverine went to Hell... and all he got was this lousy sword.  Today we're wrapping up the Muramasa beat in our #EcksofTens SwordQuest - and, in the opinion of your humble host, spending far too many pages doing so!

Also: Some great stuff in the Mailbag - including more Maddie Pryor blibbuh-blabbuh!

It's X-Lapsed's five-month milestone episode... why do all our milestone issues feature Wolverine???
