Thanks so much Pat.  I was thinking about the comics after Pupsi's request -- you answered my question and then I thought, I should check the Master Lists.  And voila!

Your question prompted me to finally create this list.  Still a work in progress, but I think I have the basics right.

Yep, 4, 5 & 6 were 2013, and I've corrected those errors.  Thanks!

Still hard to believe we've gone so long without postcards or comics.......

Pat, I agree, I'm a big fan of the comics and a year hiatus is much too long.  Hopefully next year we'll be seeing Summer and Holiday Comics. That and more Wonky Packages!
