  4. 1. Δεν είναι σωστό να μετρήσεις τα Phonogram μαζί γιατί είναι τελείως διαφορετικά το ένα από το άλλο (το πρώτο με΄ρος είναι μία ενιαία ιστορία σε 6 τεύχη, το 2ο είναι αυτοτελείς ιστορίες ανά τεύχος) και έχουν και τελείως διαφορετικό θέμα. Νόμιζα ψηφίζαμε έργα και όχι συντελεστές.
    2. Δεν έχω άλλο, δε διάβασα τίποτε άλλο για τα 20 δεκαετίας, δεν έχω προλάβει ούτε το Tatoo της Τόρι να διαβάσω...
