Not a Dream! Not a Hoax! Not an Imaginary Story! Not a… good story either!
Today we celebrate… wait, that’s not the right word for it… we commemorate the passing of the Mentor, Trainer, and Tormenter of the Uncanny X-Men: Professor Charles Francis Xavier! We will almost certainly never see him ever again.
Plus: We wrap up Cyclops’ origin in our Origins of the X-Men backup, we chat up the letters pages, go through the Bullpen Bulletins – have a brief aside about the Somerton Man, check out the new-look MIGHTY Marvel Checklist (now with 2 less anthologies!), hit up out own mailbag… and much, much more!
Join us, won’t you? This probably isn’t the best jumping-on point… but, give a listen anyway, you’ll be hooked!
