Editor's Note

Congratulations to Alycia Purrott, aka Syd from Power Rangers S.P.D., for giving birth to a baby boy... nine months ago. We were so busy congratulating Johnny Yong Bosch and Jessica Rey that this one slipped past our notice.

Ironically, her baby boy is named Jayden.

Editor's Note

A huge apology to everyone for this issue being two days late, but we had various problems with internet outages and minor fender benders, so none of it was really our fault, to be fair. Please note that any fic, posts, etc released between Sunday and today may possibly be listed above, but chances are it's not; it will all be in this coming Sunday's issue as normal, regardless of whether you see it above.
