    1. 16 is very good. Wolfman got the same.

      No, I hadn't heard of Fighter Squadron. But it's one of those titles that sounds like it must have been a film at some point!

    3. So it's really the British ones you struggled with. But you did get 20, which is interesting.

    4. Maddy wrote about no.20 and it sounded so good I had to track it down. It's very good.

    5. Yes it is. That's really great that she inspired you to track it down. I assume it's pretty obscure in the US.
