  • Fernando Ruiz: I don't know where the idea originated for the "Archie meets Archie" story. I know one day Victor Gorelick gave me the assignment to write a story where the current Archie meets the first appearance Archie. It was going to be for a digest celebrating whatever anniversary they were celebrating. That.

  • Mr.Lodge: The first batch of "Memory Lane" stories were the best but were never given the chance to "conclude" properly. The 10th Anniversary one are total crap.....

  • DeCarlo Rules: Nice to establish that. I forgot about that Twilight Zone episode! But of course, the phrase "a stroll down Memory Lane" is a familiar euphemism, so TZ took that as a literal plot device. The Memory Lane stories were the beginning of a fertile period for ACP, idea-wise.

  • Fernando Ruiz: Responding to the comments for the "When Archie Meets Archie" review, the idea for "Memory Lane" was mine. I borrowed it from an old Twilight Zone episode and thought it was a nice convenient device for the story.

What comics have you been reading?

Goldie Vance #1 - Nancy Drew in South Florida. It's definitely an all ages comic and I wouldn't compare her to Veronica Mars. Not snarky enough.


I liked the preview in the back for the Lumberjanes and Gotham Academy crossover. I've been trying to catch up on Gotham Academy in preparation.

In my attempt to try superheroes again I read Mockingbird #1. It was interesting. The first issue didn't explain much.
She has a long history (which isn't totally necessary) -- nothing like Patsy of course and she's always been in the superhero side of things, but about 50 years I'd say ... I could do a summary if you want, but I doubt it's essential ...



Do you think I would like issue #2? I think it was released this week. I'm on the fence with continuing the series.

invisifan

I've picked it up but not read it yet -- will get to it tonight and let you know  ;)

Harrow County #11 - Oh how I love thee. Still acting mysterious. I especially like the scary stories sent in by readers in the back.


Another Castle #2 - Beautiful art especially the colors. The story is standard princess fare/fairytale written by a man.

DeCarlo Rules

Today I read ARCHIE GIANT SERIES #590 and 602, and JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE #1-6; plus about halfway through JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE COMICS DIGEST #2.

Okay -- if you thought #1 was interesting I'd say definitely give the next 4 a try ... it's a bit of a mystery and more spy than superhero for the most part -- and it's supposed to be a puzzle that's shown as it goes along, with the first issue just intended to intrigue ...

I like it. I had no idea what the story was before I read it. Lots of fighting scenes which is to be expected.

DeCarlo Rules

So I was just reading HOWARD THE DUCK (2016, Vol. 2) #6, which is, in addition to being the second part of a crossover with THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL (also 2016, Vol. 2) #6, a story that takes place in between HOWARD THE DUCK (2016, Vol. 1) and HOWARD THE DUCK (2016, Vol. 2), that explains just where the heck Howard got that cyborg cat that he's had hanging around since the beginning of Vol. 2.

Now, the interesting thing here, is that a running footnote/sidebar metatextual commentary (which is the usual case for things in SQUIRREL GIRL, but not in HOWARD THE DUCK) reveals some previously unknown facts of major significance to the Marvel Universe mythos. To wit, and with reference to the character of Weapon II (who, I guess I need to explain, is a mutant cyborg squirrel, and a product of the same clandestine government program that produced Weapon X, whom most of you may know as Wolverine): As it turns out, "Weapon II" is (shockingly, I know) NOT pronounced as "Weapon Eye-Eye" but as "Weapon Two" ("II" being the Roman numeral for "2"), which means, by implication, that "Weapon X" is not pronounced "Weapon Echhs" either, but as "Weapon TEN" (again, "X" being the Roman numeral for "10"). THAT, in itself, was mind-staggering enough to those of us who had been pronouncing it "Weapon Echhs" all these years, but THEN, to have it revealed (still in the aforementioned running footnote/sidebar metatextual commentary - stay with me here) that IN ACTUAL FACT, Professor Xavier had meant to create a team of mutants known as the "Ten-Men" (his idea being that he could find 10 mutants to fill out the team ranks), but had tried to be clever and used the Roman numeral X as the designation for the number of mutants in the team. Well, obviously he did not succeed in finding his ten suitable mutants for the team, and gave up after finding only five. Since everybody was already calling his mutant team "The Echhs-Men", he just let them think he meant the English letter of the alphabet X, and not the Roman numeral, all along. This is the kind of shocking revelation that totally rewrites TOHOTMU (that's The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, in case you haven't been paying attention). Oh, and there's a story in here (HOWARD THE DUCK #6, still) with both Squirrel Girl and Howard in it (and the aforementioned cyborg cat - not to be confused with Weapon II, who is a cyborg squirrel), as well. AND THERE ARE THOSE WHO SAID THAT THIS TITLE WAS NOT IMPORTANT TO THE MARVEL UNIVERSE!! HAH!, I say, HAH!
