No question about it! However, by "KOMIX column" I simply meant presenting
the contents.

I beg to differ! While reading the articles therein has a significant
value-added, I  think that many people would be interested in just knowing
the contents of an issue, be it for indexing purposes or anything else.
Plus, I get the feeling that I wasn't "doing anything at all" when it was
myself doing simply the contents' presentations, when I thought (and still
think) that providing hard information has its own value!

There were some articles towards the end of Gladstone II by Mr. Bruce
Hamilton where various old, rare comics were presented and which were for
sale--I need to dig really deep into my collection to find the exact
issues...Someone else in this List may have them more handy.
