M.I.A. In HOXPOX...

M.I.A. In HOXPOX…

It’s Tuesday morning. The mind wanders… and politics and comic books combine.     Shut up, I don’t care. Although saying that, any criticism in the comments will ensure I never do this again.

Let’s All Read Excalibur #31 in the Light Of HOXPOX

Ah, Excalibur #31, published in the early nineties, in the dark, dark days of the between-Alan Davis runs of that mutant spinoff.
