Today the official envelope with the questionaire for this year’s Comiquiz, the Nordic Championship in comics knowledge, arrived. It is not to be opened until Saturday 16.00, though. Personally, I think it should have had red markings on it, stating “Do NOT open until Saturday!” in big BLOCK letters. Oh well, may the best team win!
