      Impressive number of thematic entries! Heads up: you're missing an asterisk in the clue for 1D1D*Belgian comic book hero[---]
      • Wayne Mesard constructor · 2023-02-15T01:25:06.062Z
        Thanks for catching that! Fixed.

          Another enjoyable puzzle Wayne. Fun theme and some tricky clues.

                26A26A*Family jewels[---] took me a minute. Nicely executed theme.

                  Yeah, I didn't figure that one out until after I finished the puzzle, since it's the only one that isn't a full word. But in any case, I think this is a nice theme and an impressive number of themed entries.
                  • Wayne Mesard constructor · 2023-05-10T23:30:35.836Z
                    It was a tough call: protect the elegance of the theme, or cater to my inner eight year old boy. In the end, there was never even a question.
