WOW, how we changed over the years!  This is the
cover of the very first issue of
The Jot 'Em Down
Journal
!  All copies are now sold out, but one of these
days we will be reproducing it... Somehow...  
How?  The Shadow knows!  Or maybe the Phantom
Author knows better...


























The Jot 'Em Down Journal became one of the slickest
OTR publications around as this 2005 cover proves.
