One more Author's Note here...  I set a record!  Up 'til now, I'd only 
fit thirty-nine full-sized character portrayals into a single Powernaut 
comic before (1969 #19, the crowd scene in Hypergaard).  I got up to 
forty-two for 2005 #41, the Christmas Dinner scene in Iraq, by drawing 
very small drawings.  But 2012 #5 shatters both those records.  With all 
the Powernauts, buffaloes, and Obamas, the strip has forty-eight 
portrayals, all nearly full-sized!
