no rocketeer?

As of this writing, six days w/out a reason. I’m starting to hate comics…

Super Dogs, Krypto & Ace, the Bat Hound.

Plus you didn’t mention the THUNDER Agents.

Since you’ve looked at all these Bobs, how about Bob Budiansky? Brilliant work on Sleepwalker, a father of Transformers lore, and most significantly of all was the penciller and eventual co-plotter with J.M. DeMatteis on Ghost Rider back in the day?

What’s the point of those blank numbers?
