And that it isn't the mid-90's, when that was a reference.

Ya know...

I remember in the '90s when Archie Meets the Punisher hit the shelves. It was an odd enough concept to get me to pick it up despite reading neither of the 2 titles. It was a haphazard flash-in-the-pan in-joke-made-comic-book. That was awesome.

Now they're just doing it on purpose.

At least now I know I hate his take on future-Batman and can just ignore this one.

I hope Batman will beat Superman in a fight.  Frank hasn't done it before and no one is sick to death of it.



I just feel bad that Brian Azzarello is involved.  I like him but I imagine it will be less "his writing will improve Miller's work" and more "the worst creative instincts of both creators are invoked".

I'd rather they just linked to the Gerry Conway article, the injections got a bit annoying.  But yeah, that's pretty shitty.

Big relaunch of Archie comics on Kickstarter.

I'm actually considering checking some of these out...

This kickstarter confuses me, but Archie comics has always confused me too. They have a habit of publishing comics that nobody should be reading anymore. (Their Ninja Turtles comics ran well after the hype machine had shut down, and I think they're STILL publishing Sonic the Hedgehog. Also, Archie...) They must be selling these comics to someone, or they wouldn't be there, but I've never met this person. So since I have no clue where their money comes from, I have no clue why they need to ask us for more.

Yes.  And when it is a 'for profit' business, I think it is arrogant (and inappropriate [maybe unethical and immoral]) of them to ask people to fund them when THEY will reap any/all profits.  That is what selling/buying stock in a company is for: shared risk, but also shared success.  A lot of Kickstarter has been turned into a place where companies have to take NO RISK, yet reap every bit of the benefits of any success.

Seems a lot like Wall Street to me.

Well the consumer benefits because when you take away the risk, the company becomes willing to put out things they wouldn't otherwise.

Every now and then, a fan of something says, "I'd pay like- $500 if they'd just make ______." Kickstarter is where you go to pay that $500. That's why I'm OK with Rifftrax going to the well when they want to do a live show. I'm pretty sure we wouldn't be getting The Room live without it. They were able to do something they wouldn't have been able to otherwise, because the fans were willing to put their money where their mouth is and remove the risk of doing so.

But Archie doing a kickstarter in order to publish Archie comics seems like Pepsi doing a kickstarter to keep Pepsi on the shelf.
