How does one become a Knight Tempolar again? 4 It's simple: prove that you can travel in time. There are a few possible ways. BlitzRandir is my witness!

Re: 1416: "Pixels"

So I guess work is not going to be done today... Got some zoomin' to do!

If you follow the "book launch" ones, there is a comic about how they use a rocket to actually launch the book!

So probably, there are more secret comics hidden in the layers...

Let's find them all!
