We here at Biff Bam Pop! absolutely love world records, limited editions and exclamation marks. Well, at least I think we do.
Anyway, mingle those three flights of fancy together alongside a healthy dose of comic book movers-and-shakers and you can’t help but have something supremely interesting on your hands – definitely something motivating enough to make you run to the local comic book shop on a Wednesday afternoon and check out, at any rate!
