I like a comic which asks you to think (or at least calculate)

School is too long ago for this. 5 of the letters got me into trouble. Luckily they weren't needed for solving the puzzle :-)

Shouldn't there be another 23 at the end? ;P

Not here in the U.S., Kerr. Now, if it were a British comic...
