ISSUE 14,5



Editor's Note:

Well, this one came out of nowhere!
There is a reason for that. I wanted to put out an issue with zero build-up and even less expectations so that it would feel out of nowhere. And since no one really cares about it - this cunning stunt is relatively easy to pull off.
Without further ado - enjoy!
