I'm not sure who other than ourselves would be printing these things 
out, but it's still a freakishly good idea.

People like art.  Pick stories that have cover art.  Twenty-Fisted 
Tales, for instance.

If it's us printing the things out, we'd better be thinking "fanzine".

Watch out lest I swipe the idea!  There are a couple of stores I could 
probably talk into distributing the Powernaut 2005 series, which was 
*designed* as an introduction to Powernauts.  Four strips, two sides of 
one sheet of paper, no staples!

Of course that doesn't preclude the Powernaut in a RACC jam.  For that 
I'd recommend Powernaut 1944 or 2009.
