Hi Nicola, that's 4 for me actually:

- Electric Girl
- Marvel Treasury #26

Nicola Mansfield said...

OK John gotcha. I put you at 3 since Marvel Treasury is down on the August links.
I've even made a mess with my own count but since it's over 12 I'm leaving as is! LOL Next year, I'll have people leave me their count like you and a few other hosts do, much easier on the host me thinks :-)
