    @Adam_Murdough I've caught up on this episode tonight. Thank you for the kind words. We're keeping the lights on for you whenever you all are ready to come back from Facebook. I've been chewing on that set of Muddle questions for years, trying to figure out the third part (which I hit upon in the last year due to the joyous gasping/groaning recommendations of @wildpigcomics)

    I cannot strongly enough suggest that The Shadowline Saga is worth the time, at least until Critical Mass, which pretty clearly was a high speed pruning of what would have been a much bigger story. Also, it is one of the biggest tragedies that I consistently see in the bargain bins.

    At the time, it was the tightest continuity that I had read with each issue being informed by the most recent issues of the other two series while still being able to be read as a stand alone. That is largely because DG Chichester was writing it all (except for the final issues of Power Line and Doctor Zero) and based on characters credited to Archie Goodwin. The covers by Bill Sienkiewicz, JohnmMuth, Kevin Nowlan, Mark Chiarello, Kevin O'Neill, Grey Morrow and Kent Williams each taking a hand at a month's worth of covers.

  • If you're talking about letters of the alphabet, something like a slash or any kind of accent is called a diacritic. Numbers can't have diacritics though. According to the wikipedia article "Slashed Zero", the slash that sometimes appears in a zero is called... a slash.

  • Are you guys trying to tell me that I'm not going to get any activity books or read-along story books based on this new version of Dune? That's a downer.
