I'm genuinely impressed by the thorough and frankly incredible amount of research here, dude. Thank you for running this; it's rare to see a fan who's interested in actual demographics and such.
I'm glad to say that I've read every single Bionicle comic ever published, including Ignition #0 and #12.5.
However, I have not read any of the short stories. Frankly, I had no clue that there were more than three or four. Looks like I got a busy weekend ahead of me.
