Rich Trask’s deliberate use of non-sequiturs and one-liners phrased nominally as cliffhangers has caused quite a stir among fans! I’ve received multiple letters asking if we’ll ever see Diabolic X’s family members mentioned in the early strips. Maybe, but my guess is they’re all hanging out with Vern from the Ernest movies and Godot. —Ken Eppstein
