MOKF! The last mainstream comic I gave up on after I started reading Cerebus full time (early to mid-80s). Of course, I had no idea then, nor did many others, of the Day-Sim connection.

Do y'all know how hard it is to find back issues, at least in brick-and-mortar shops, of the Gene Day issues of MOKF? And, to my knowledge, Marvel won't reprint them in TPB form because of conflict (fonfliff!) with the estate of Sax Rohmer, the creator of the Dr. Fu Manchu character, who first appeared in novel form in 1913.

If anyone has leads on obtaining the full run of Gene Day issues of MOKF (not just the ones on which he just did the covers, but including those), please let me know. I'm also looking for a full set of Black Zeppelin.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Day, and R.I.P.
