Yeah well, back in the 80's I did a comic book for a girl I was smitten with. Might call it a graphic novel these days.

Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but the Yamato-class battleships were top secret and to this day the complete designs have not been found. Small portions of the blue prints have turned up, but the data is far from complete. Even most of the engineers who worked on the ship never saw complete plans for the… » 12/11/14 6:55pm 12/11/14 6:55pm
