    I was organizing my BA issues today and happened to notice the recent issues formed a picture

    (Issues 55-72)

    I'm sure others have noticed this, but I thought it was pretty cool.

    Yup. They dropped a hint they'd be doing something like this when they switched over to the perfect binding. I, too, dig it.

    Is this the answer to the Publius Enigma? Cool that another publication is also doing this.

    That's pretty neat. I only have 2 issues so far, so I wouldn't have had the chance to notice yet.
