Have you printed out every LNH story?  And if so, if you stack them all
together how tall are they?

When I first started reading alt.comics.lnh I printed stuff, including
comments and stuff although I did this only for like a month.

Haven't really printed out any stories except for a printout I have of the
Saviors of the Net.  Just destroy my eyesight by reading them straight from
the computer.

Speaking of great stories I really need to print out my Refugees of
Net.ropolis and Guttertrash one of these days lest I have a complete hard
drive crash and lose those series forever.  (Damn Abhay for deleting them
from the archives... yeah, I know it's his call... but still... Sigh.)

Speaking of Bound stories and Guttertrash though a couple of months ago I
spotted an anthology called Adventure Vol 1 Edited by Chris Roberson at a
bookstore in Yuma.  It had two stories from ex-RACC'rs, Marc Singer and
Matthew "Badger" Rossi.  One of the stories was 'Johnny Come Lately' that
first appeared in Guttertrash on RACC.  Kind of cool to be able to buy a
book in store that had a RACC story in it.  Probably can find it on Amazon.

Perhaps it could be bound in a 'Greatest LNH Dog Stories' anthology.

Lets see here... Dogboy, Cauliflower, was Arvie the WonderDog and LNH
series?, I think there was some mini involving dogs too (forget the name)
and of course the Way Cool Adventures of Dr. Cool J Dog.  :)  (or maybe not)

Yeah, I forgot about WBW... maybe I should just started posting new issues
of JONG so I can claim to have the longest running existing series on RACC.
