C2C; I was surprised to see no scans here of issues earlier than #23. I have a few other early non-c2c scans (not originally mine) to upload

Comment: The comic maintains its overall high quality. This month for 10 cents kids could become members of the Shock Gibson Volunteers getting for the dime a lifetime enrollment card and an amazing "Live Wire" button with an "electric, dynamic look about it that gets attention". I guess that was the carefully planned design idea behind Shcok and his "distinctive costume" from the begining. It works to. Page 5 (of the comic not the preview) panel 3 looks like a gay joke to me.
