I will have to recheck out “Marvin” (a nastier version of Dennis the Menace”) and Millie (a shameless ripoff of Archie Comics’ Katy Keene)
Oh, and “Not Brand Ecch!”, an entire comic devoted to bashing DC characters.
They get to a total of 700 quickly when you throw in limited series #1s
I drifted away from new comics nearing on ten years ago (or did they drift away from me), but there are quite a few titles that have never been reprinted and I can’t/won’t afford. This is a nice way to sample them.
For example, I’ve always wondered who Sun Girl was, so now I can find out!
LOL, you can get every issue for download on the torrent sites. Marvel is a lib bastion..
And I used to think the FreeRepublic server was slow.
YIKES!! Nothing happening there.
DC was just too friggin' weird/hokey for my tastes.
Downloaded the app to my android tablet, but it does not recognize the fact that I have wifi access to the Internet. Oh well...
