I might pull off a couple more six-issue series in 1987 and 1993, but 
otherwise I agree.  Power School 2013 particularly seems headed for some 
complex characterization - in addition to a certain rampaging monster.

hmmm, has anyone in comic books ever irradiated an entire ranch of 
herd-creatures before?  And *these* were raised by a kindly elderly 
female scientist with no special powers.  She was no threat to herd 
structure.  The herd alpha-buffalo probably reacted poorly to a visiting 
herd of humans with super-powered alpha males of its own.

(I do promise to thematically link the plot elements for 2013.)

I do tweak the style slightly for each era.  But I'm guessing you mean 
something different by "style"...  I've been at this long enough that I 
might actually be improving my craft.  2012 is indeed a new style when 
compared with 2011, but it will look a lot like 1985.
