It's nice to hear that we're not the only ones that make silly indexes.

But there is a big advantage in having the indexes in a computer readable
form: you can search for certain stories, sort your indexes by (e.g.) artist,
add extra data at any time, etc. etc. So David's work is still very useful..

What's RBCC?

We are not only making indexes of the old Dell/Gold Key stuff, but we also have:
- a Gladstone index and a Disney Comics index
- a Don Rosa index
- a Swedish Barks index
- a Dutch index

I'm sure none of these are published in old USA fanzines (most of the 
publications they refer to were done after 1980...)
