I’m Ekko. I’ve been blogging since 2001. I started with music, then added some humor and miscellany, and now also write extensively about comic books. These are my lifelong loves.

If you want to submit your music or art for consideration, please e-mail me ekalett@yahoo.com. I read and listen to all submissions, but only review the ones that I really like. I do not review music released on a label that is part of the RIAA. This is an independent site.

This is the “home page” of my site. If you’re only interested in specific topics, please click on the topic from the menu bar at the top of this page.

X-FORCE #129: The Final Issue


IMG_7795X-Force ended because so many fans were pissed that their black op X-Men mag had been turned into its exact opposite: A brightly colored team that was in the spotlight, public, and all about making money off being heroes.  But before she died, Edie whispered the name of the new team into the ear of the team leader, and her boyfriend, Mister Sensitive.

And you’ve got to love Mike Allred’s covers in this series.  This one in particular….

Anyway, nothing to fear.  X-Statix got its own book the very next month.



A fresh new voice from Maryland, Ace Cosgrove has youth on his side. He’s starting out with a crisp delivery, terrific beats (by Black Diamond, FredP, Khamsin, I.V., Merce, Royal, Stolbowsky and Thomas Foolery), and wild-and-crazy ideas. His new mixtape is 100% new material–no reproduced singles here–and 100% original.

You can download the whole thing free on Soundcloud, and it gets my highest recommendation.
