This place has delivered on all it promised us back in January, plus more, and I’m loving it. These previews are so cool and work in making me anticipate something I may not have been interested in before I saw it. Keep them coming and thanks for this - looking forward to seeing the other 97 pages!

Edit - what was with rich, single guys in the 30s, 40s and 50s having young boys as “wards”?
Also, in the final panel of the preview it appears that the Invisible Bandit has robbed Charlie Brown! :wink:


I thought the exact same thing!

Covert Kite Man


I may have to go and find a print copy of this one, especially the Howard Porter 1990s variant.
