I've finally completed my covers gallery for 'Hurriccanes' - a short-lived title from DC Thomsom. It wasn't an original title for them, instead it was a tie-in with a TV cartoon series. 7 issues only.

More progress on my covers gallery for 1994 comic 'Tiny Toon Adventures' (not to be confused with the Marvel UK title of the same name from 1992/3). I now know it lasted at least 10 issues. Any further help much appreciated.
