      The blurbs are so vague ('shocking changes that will change the game forever!' like I saw next to every episode of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. on catch-up because the network that ran it here thinks I'm impressed by reality TV) that I don't have a clue what happens in the issue. Any ideas?

      Also, that thumbnail of the Bobby 'action figure' looks like he's completely, explicitly naked. I embiggened it just to see if I was seeing what it looked like I was seeing on a US comic cover (turned out the shadows on his speedoes looked like his genitals, and 'X' on his belt looked like pubic hair, but he wasn't actually naked).

      Those of you who buy the issue, let us know if it's any good, 'k? I'm not planning to yet, but I could be swayed.

      Ugh.
      Just ordered the 11 variant covers.
      Why oh why do I do this to myself...?
      Thankfully all at less than cover price, but still...

      Because you have a CDO*-like need for completion. You know you'll feel an empty gap if you don't, and it'll just keep nagging and nagging at you.

      We've all been there.

      Well...














      No continuation of the Jeffries story, and a tiny JP in a second panel, virtually the same as the first...

      But is the issue any good?

      The Colossus/Magik story & the redemption of Cyclops stories are good.

      The Beast & Iceman ones... not so much...

      I didn't even know they were trying to redeem Cyclops.
      Thanks!

      So, on second read it appears Jeffries is in the issue, but you can't actually tell it's him.
