Adventures of Jelaby FCBD (Captstone)
Infinite Speech: Great all ages primer in these pages here!

All New X-Men #26 (Marvel)
Arnab: Cyclops talking to Jean wasn’t nearly as creepy as 100+ year old Logan with Rogue, Jubilee, Armor…
Infinite Speech: Creepy, Scott. Just…creepy.
Jeff: I’m glad Kitty called Scott on the creepiness of being in Jean’s room alone with her. It was getting weird.

Rai #1 (Valiant)
Jeff: I loved the art, but couldn’t finish reading the story.
