  1. "What's happening to Excalibur?"

    Hey, your guess is as good as ours!

  2. I'm trying to keep ahead of the game, and so far succeeding. I read X-MEN 27, UNCANNY 308, and X-MEN 28 over the weekend. I'll try to get to GAMBIT this week, then I'll be good for the month, since I'm not reading along with most of the ancillary stuff.

    1. I got a chuckle out of the notion that the Gambit mini was anything other than ancillary.

    2. True, I probably should've said "...since I'm not reading along with any of the ancillary stuff that I don't already own/have access to/have interest in reading!" That mini-series certainly was so ancillary that I remember being annoying it was barely mentioned in the ongoing X-MEN and UNCANNY X-MEN issues at the time.


  3. I’ve already read what's to be covered this week, so I’m ahead of the game too. “But,” in the immortal words of John Belushi as William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk, “for how long, Mr. Spock? For… how… long?” I don’t like to read too far ahead even if I’m able because little to nothing of the X-titles in this era is already familiar to me and I want stuff fresh in my head come posting time or there’s no point. Then before I know it, likely as not, I’ve fallen behind again. I’m still amazed at my resolve to read stuff like early X-Force, to be honest, which I’d been actively disinterested in ever reading, but I figured, hey, in for a penny, in for a die-cut, foil-embossed hologram.


Comment. Please. Love it? Hate it? Are mildly indifferent to it? Let us know!
