Mary, I believe what you are looking for is a piece of software called "After Dark," developed by Berkeley Systems.

I feel like we would have enjoyed each other immensely in 1988.

It was a series of about 13 volumes? I've searched for them online before but the closest I found was called Stray Toasters... which could be them but I don't think so.

I wasn't in grade school, but I was mentally preparing myself for the adventures that kindergarten held for me in the coming year.

Thanks, It was some really cool work. I think it was around the same time the Watchmen series came out.

Are you reading the individual issues as they come out or just waiting on the trade?

It's not very good. Might want to cancel that order. Plus you'll need all the regular various x-men and avengers series for it to make sense. Most of the action happens outside of the main 12 issues. It's a rip. I wouldn't recommend it at all.

that's ok, man - I ordered a copy of one of the 'stray toasters' comics via amazon - that might be it... I hope to remember some of the art work, at least, once I get it...

apparently this is the same guy (Bill Sienkiewicz) who did a better known set of Electra Assassin comics with Frank Miller around the same time. very well received - you familiar?
