	AR had access to stats for most Lulu stories, but NOT all (Western
had lost material to a handful of issues). So a number of stories, in whole
or in part, ended up having to be traced to create new versions for the LLL.
	Today, graphic designers working with computers can recreate more
authentic versions of stories like these, by scanning in the original comics
pages and electronically removing the color. A laborious effort, but it

	That said, Dark Horse seems to be getting their material by simply
xeroxing the LLL versions.
