G-FAN poster removal instructions

The poster in the center of G-FAN #118 is held in place by a spot of glue. To easily remove the poster, use a blow dryer to heat the glue spot as you gently pull the poster out. You can use the blob of removed glue to dab and remove any remaining residue from the page. Sorry for any troubles! -J.D.
