Well there you have it, only one missing title from the 56 known issues and again worth looking out for titles like 'Odd Girl', 'Gutter Star' & 'Strange Circle' .......not highly sought after book company and you can pick up a lot of these books for reasonable money....go for it if you find one in good condition.

Right, next up for me 'UnI Books' .....so stand by folks !!
