Thanks for the encouraging review.

I thought I should take this opportunity to clarify that I did not, in 
fact, run out of motivation again and stop writing :-) However, the 
computer with all my notes and partially-written issues has crashed, and 
I'm still a few days away from repairing it.  An issue should pop up in a 
week or so.

(Yeah, I have an off-site backup, but Murphy's laws state this kind of 
thing only happens when you forget to push your backup.)

The truth is, even without my notes, I could be working on issue 53 or 
something... but I'm really too miffed at not having a proper computer, 
or my notes, or my Crossfire source trees, or my work stuff, to be 
creative :-(

Freak is (was) based on Venom and Rag Doll.  Venom's primary schtick in 
this incarnation is eating people.  So I figured, in the theme of "New 
Misfits throw a wrench on Dark Reign", Pantra eating Freak would make 
perfect sense, in a perverse sort of way.

And it actually appeared for the first time a few issues before it was 
created, when it's being dropped at Fodder's bunk.

Thanks for enjoying my interleaving/long-term-planning efforts, that's 
what I've been having the most fun with in this series :-)  Let's hope 
when I end this, it all holds together in a nice way.

I'm using a laptop and forgot to copy my signature file.
For the moment, whatever info you want is probably at or thereabouts...
