A Month of... Pancakes! Day 5: And these children that you spit on as they try to change their worlds are immune to your consultations, they're quite aware of pancakes

From absolutely my favorite issue of Generation X — Number 27, the single most important #27 in the history of comics! Inside the shiny (in the Kaylee Frye manner) pages of this pitch-perfect comic, Jubilee (yeah, she's my favorite X-Men, wanna make somethin' of it?) defies and defeats Bastion while she's locked up in a KirbyTech-type mind-sifter. hey, even James T. Kirk didn't do as well strapped into one o' those! Why, if there hadn't already been official licensed Star Trek/X-Men comic books, I'd think this oughta be a "logical" crossover! (tee hee)

Panels from Generation X #27 (May 1997), script by Scott Lobdell, pencils by Chris Bachalo with Pop Mhan, inks by Al Vey with Scott Hanna, colors by Marie Javins and Dr. Martin, letters by Richard Starkings

And important, now more than ever:

Also in this classic ish: from the typewriter, pencil and pen of one of my favorite creators, Jim Mahfood —: Jubilee makes pancakes! You were wondering how I was going to make this about pancakes, weren't you?

"Cookin' with Jubilee" from Generation X #27 (May 1997); script, pencils, inks, and letters by Jim Mahfood

I love Jim Mahfood! He's the guy who put the food in mahfood!

And this isn't even the only pancake recipe you'll get in this here delicious Month of Pancakes. What, another recipe from the pages of a comic book? What is this mythical miracle comic, Betty Crocker Team-Up? Stay tuned, True Bullievers, and keep watching the syrup!
