Loads in my loft unread still with the disks on, I was buying it until it went out of publication for a few months then it came back and I never bought it again, you could see where they was cutting word for word out of Wikipedia articles in the early ones :lol:

I remember issue 1 reaching stupid prices on eBay about £80-£100 when it was still in shops but hard to find... people are weird :lol:
