Issue ends with a slew of letters! From Richie Donato of Staten Island, NY / P. David Hunter of Sandy, UT / Scott Morse of Santa Clara, CA / Josie James of Waukega, IL // Rick Houston of Richman, VA. Even Brent Anderson wrote a letter, explaining what happened with the issue of 45 of Marvel Age, and its description of his series “Strikeforce : Morituri” a series that gets mentioned a lot in this issue but I’ve never heard of it. It even gets the back cover!

Happy Veterans’ Day, all of you who has ever served! I really appreciate it!
