As far as I know, there were also some continuities in the 1980s and/or 
1990s by Floyd Norman, but exact dates for those are unknown in Inducks.

Inducks contains a field called "superref" (see that is used for linking 
the continuities with the single strips.  A "superrefd" field (see is automatically added 
in the other end so that the linking works in both directions. 
Unfortunately, COA doesn't display the superref and superrefd fields. 
I'd call this a COA bug.
