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.

X-FORCE #128: “Someone Dies”


So far, this is my single favorite issue of this groundbreaking series.  The title, “Someone Dies,” is wholly believable.  Milligan and Allred started X-Force by killing off the team’s leader, and one other character, in the very first issue.  It was clear that nobody was safe.

But in this issue, it’s never clear who is going to die.  And the story plays with this concept, from the get-go, with this dice roll to determine who will stay behind and face certain death in space to save the others.


IRON MAN #225: The Iron Wars Begins!


The return of Michelinie and Layton wasn’t as good as the original run, but “The Iron Wars” made it all worth it.  Tony Stark finds out that a whole bunch of bad dudes have stolen Stark tech and are using it in their powered suits, so he sets about getting it all back.  This is definitely one of the best Iron Man stories of all time, even if the script is a bit dated.
