One day my husband and I were at a comic shop in Fresno and one of the owners, Wayne, gave us a reprint copy of issue one from the original quest. It was love at first read. I think at the time they were about 4 or 5 issues into the series. Next time we were back in Fresno we bought the rest that were out and that was soooooo great. Then the agonizing wait between issues! I read them to our kids as they were growing up. They are both big fans also.
