Hmmmmm, I seem to recall I have a small collection of those comics downstairs. I don't know if I have the nerve to look through all of them at the moment though, for it will surely imply 'cleaning'. I never really knew what they were, just some cool artwork and ended up buying them and then forgetting all about it.
