I recently followed a link to viruscomix in a post here @LQ, there I discovered a set of (then) 10, now 17 so far, strips featuring "The Sphynx". The premise being how would the Sphinx of the OEdipus legend function in modern society. I wanted to keep a list of them:
  1. OEdipus Redux (oedipus redux) == (4: Oedipus Redux) [Sphynx I]
  2. The Further Adventures of The Sphynx (not really) == (23: Sphynx II)
  3. Friday Evening with The Sphynx (monsters playing poker) == (42:

1st, thank you to Jeremy & all the Mods, they make this an orderly & productive place to hang out.

Background note: My main way of interacting w/ LQ is through my subscription to the daily "0-reply threads" e-mail. Therefore, my problems arise when I click on an entry in that e-mail & find a closed thread which has no references to its continuation, or, worse, gives the "Invalid Thread specified.
