In early to mid 1994

I can't remember after all this time. The first series that I
can *recall* reading was either Retcon Hour or some of Martin
Phipps' stuff. Or possibly it may have been Dvandom Force.

The problem is that looking back through google as a memeory
prompt, there was stuff from that period which I don't recall
seeing, let alone reading. I'm pretty sure that it's the case 
that my earliest LNH readings were quite distinct from my 
earliest RACC readings  - and unfortunately I can't recall
when I segued in from alt.comics.lnh either.

Methinks I should set aside some time to go back and at least 
skim through the headers of the ealy RACC posts. That's a tactic
that's paid off for rereading the original LNH thread. For
instance, does anyone else recall that in the call-to-arms by
Ben Pierce that the LNHHQ is described as looking like a
computer terminal planted upside down in the ground? That's just
so cool. I think I'll have to use that sometime.
