One more Mega Man post, this time a single issue which has everything you desire from a comic about a, "super fighting robot," and by that I mean characters debating the need for romantic love among Robots.

So I have been reading through the Mega Man series, thanks to posts made here (I had read a bit of it before, but hadn't decided to pick up the whole thing till recently).

And I really just wanted to share the emotional journies of original character Tempo (aka Quake Woman), and Blues (aka Break Man, aka Proto Man) so far.

Read more... )

The Mega Man comic has reached the end of the "Mega Man 3" game storyline and is now starting it's new big crossover with Sonic, but let's have a look at the issue right before it.



Wily is defeated and presumed dead, and Dr. Light has repaired all the robot masters. But the question now is:

What do you do with a bunch of robots built specifically for war and destruction? Well, you try to find them new jobs. 6 pages out of 20 )

Sonic Universe. A side-story comic spun off a comic based on a video game character. Not exactly where one would expect to find high quality stuff.

Fortunately, however, Archie and writer Ian Flynn defy expectations, and put at least as much effort into the character-centric side stories as they do the main book... which is itself better than one may expect ^^

In this case? The story of an AI, Nicole, in....



The Spark of Life!

In 1972, Archie Comics made its first major venture, since the MLJ days, into horror, with the series Chilling Adventures in Sorcery as Told by Sabrina. (This is not to be confused with the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina title launched earlier this very month in the wake of Afterlife with Archie's success.) Loosely patterned after the EC and other horror comics of the fifties, it was an anthology title hosted--for its first two issues--by everyone's favourite Teenage Witch, written and drawn by regulars from Archie's creative team: writer Frank Doyle and, in the stories excerpted here, Dan DeCarlo and Rudy Lapick on art.

If nothing else, this horror host is easier on the eyes than EC's GhouLunatics )

Taking a brief break from my horror postings to bring you these amusing bits from one of my favourite 1970s Archie stories: "Kong Phoo" from Archie at Riverdale High #18 (Aug 1974). Script by Frank Doyle, art by Harry Lucey.

CHA! FOOM! HAAK! )

may find that this preview of "Afterlife with Archie" (A frankly rather awesome title IMHO) up at Newsarama to be the sort of thing that trashes childhoods and tarnishes treasured memories...

To malevolent bastards like me, on the other hand...

it's GOLD! )

CA: So do those defining traits take on a darker tone? Is Reggie now scheming for survival?

RAS: Yes. So far, the series’ big secret that we’ve told everyone is that Reggie’s the one who ran down Hot Dog, which is what triggered the zombie apocalypse. He’s got a vested interest in all of this staying quiet, in true Reggie Mantle fashion.

CA: So if I’m putting this together right, Reggie runs over Hot Dog.

RAS: Right.
This is an actual comic that is going to be published )

A bit late for "Beyond the Big Two" week, but I know you folks like Archie-related posts...

Archie #634, and the finale of the "Archie Marries Valerie" timeline!

To recap: Valerie of Josie and the Pussycats has become interested in Archie Andrews. While considering if this is a wise move, she wanders into the Memory Lane area of the Yellow Woods and starts having visions of a possible future.

Valerie and Archie get married. They form the duo of "Him and Her." Veronica becomes a Pussycat. The Archies reform as "Sugar Sugar" with Trev (Valerie's brother and Betty's new squeeze), Betty, Reggie and Jughead. Archie and Valerie have a baby girl named Star, who turns out to be a musical prodigy.

Let's check in with yet another of the future timelines Archie Comics is doing--the one where he marries Valerie of Josie and the Pussycats!



Previously: Valerie walked into the Memory Lane section of the forest while thinking of Archie, and wondering if she should pursue a relationship with him. In this timeline, the Archies band got some breaks so they went beyond a local band status. They kept running into the Pussycats, and Archie and Valerie started going steady. (In the background, Betty met and started dating Valerie's brother Trevor.)

Eventually, they eloped and got married, but the two bands' touring schedules meant the young couple wasn't getting much together time. Alex (the Pussycat's PR guy) put together a reality show where Archie and Valerie helped teach kids at music school. This was so successful that Mr. & Mrs. Andrews decided to go full-time.

Four pages from Archie #633. )
