The series was originally billed as a mini, and then got extended (it's
sort of the reverse of Marvel's policy these days of launching a series,

and then if the sales figures tank retroactively announcing it to be a 
miniseries). And it's not as though I didn't do exactly the same thing
when I decided to extend the original Limp-Asparagus Lad miniseries and
continue numbering at #7 rather than restarting with a second #1.
In any case, I'm assuming that the entry for RACC2 and LNH2 (fave
covers Vel #1 onwards, and hoping that people can keep track of exactly 
what they're voting for in what category. (In that regard it's rather 
like what Jamie felt compelled to do: reminding people who'd nominated 
him not to mix up all the stuff he'd posted this year with the tiny 
amount from last year that was actually eligible).

Nope. No use being sorry after the fact. Be aware of the consequences 
of your actions.

Oh, pfft. I've had Pointless Awards Man 2 come after me and then just 
turn all plain bitter and twisted, and you think you're safe from the 
Looniversal Answering Machine coming in to try and kick your hash?

Oh. Oh dear. Horrible twisted idea hits me literally as I type my reply.

For a few years I've had a Secret Origin for a Computo/Ultron/Mechanon
killer robot style villain - an experimental AI telephone answering 
machine at one of the universities (Netropolis U, Dave Thomas Deluxe, 
Calisota State, it doesn't matter which...) gets pissed off at those 
horrible meat sack humans never leaving messages and goes completely
bugf*ck insane... And now with only a little bit of modification I've 
got a lead in.
