We finally got it!

This morning at 10:08 it just happened: a FedEx guy arrived with the most wanted package ever.

As John Locke said,The island gives you what you need, so finally we have it.

Since today has been a busy day at the office, we weren't able to scan the whole comic book yet. The only thing we have made for the moment is taking some pictures of ourselves opening the package, and a scan of the first...

An impossible mission

We have been trying to find the comic, but it seems that it's going to be a tough task. It's not a popular comic, so there aren't many copies of it, being a late 50's publication. We haven't found it in any comic store or websitet (scanned). However, we are not going to give up in our search, and will keep on digging up the internet to find it. We are pretty sure that the Mystery Tales 40...
