Are their any 'Screen Heroes' fans from ACU out there? Enough fans to run a pole of favourite strip??   :o

Thought I'd better add a bit of context.  Screen Heroes is a small 2-3 frame comic strip printed in Amstrad Computer User / ACU from Nov 1989 - May 1992 (the last issue) in the News section.  I don't know any history of it or who the artist 'Jules' is but it seems to tie in with the introduction of the caricatures of the magazine staff so I'm guessing it's the credited illustrator Julian Sharp.  Some of them are not bad, others a bit cringe, an amusing niche of Amstrad history anyway.

I've attached a couple of my favourites.  Read at your peril  ;D

Though I've read the magazines I didn't remember that... is there a collection anywhere?

Not that I'm aware of but it's always located in the 'News' section near the front of the magazines.
