I just read issues 2, 3 and 4 of Archie Vs Predator yesterday. It was pretty violent and even gory(which I must admit is to be expected), but it's also very funny.

Very pleasantly surprised that my local comic shop is getting the new MST3K book in, and they had a spare copy, so I put my name down on the list for it!

That says there hasn't been a new strip in over 20 years. (In fact, if their dates are right, getting close to 30)
FINE

I'm enjoying the MST3K comic so far, but the concept makes for a tricky read. I think it's a comic I'm going to have to learn the rhythm of to really enjoy. I keep getting distracted by things like, "Why was that dialogue altered?" "Who was supposed to have really said that?" "What voice should I be reading in?" It's funny whenever I'm not worrying about those things, though. Maybe the problem is I've only read each issue once. This might require multiple readings.

I've only read the first issue so far. I enjoyed it, and I liked the concept. But man, they picked such a BOOOORING type of comic to parody. This is like watching Last of the Wild Horses episode for me in how much of a slog the movie is to get through. But that's just me. Plus I'll give them credit for not going the obvious route of parodying superhero comics right off the bat.

Looks like Stan Lee has passed away.

Shit.  I think we knew it wasn't far off but I need time to process this.

That stings. At 95, he had a good run. Still, it always felt to me like he was going to be cameoing in Marvel Movies forever.
