err, no, you are seeing the top of the line in artwork which I have ever 
seen for this group.  Except if you look up "Chevalier", you will see 
that same artist's work in color.

Perhaps you saw my review of "The Web Comics" today.  The Powernaut (see 
Part 1:  Introduction and SW10) is actually one of those.  I didn't 
think of that, because the fictional people who write my reviews think 
of him as an extension of my prose fiction.  Perhaps I should 
recategorize him right now.

The remaining RACC web comic is "Ripping Off King Arthur".  For that I 
would recommend the "Suicide in Destiny City" miniseries, to see this 
Writer and Artist develop toward his full potential.

... hmm, if I didn't say this stuff for the record in End-of-Year 
Reviews, perhaps I should republish!
