Archie Andrews is your average  freckle faced redheaded teenager. He likes video games, girls, and his name has been known among comic book lovers for decades. Archie and the gang are back for a short bite sized edition of fun Riverdale updates.

This digital version of Archie & Friends is a reminder that some things are timeless. Once again, I got to meet with some old friends from my childhood and I was happy to see that they hadn’t really changed. Archie still likes girls and games. Jughead still likes food. Reggie still likes … well, Reggie. This is a quick read that is silly and enjoyable to read...

Usagi Yojimbo: The Hidden #2

Welcome back Usagi Yojimbo: The Hidden #2, the mini-series that is also issue #167 in the regular series (because apparently, that re-numbering irks me enough to mention for a second month.)

As I mentioned in last month’s review of issue #1, “The Hidden” takes its name from the Kakure Kirishitan or “Hidden Christians” of Japan’s Edo period. Usagi’s timeline within the context of real-world history has always been a bit loose, but one of my favorite things about Stan Sakai’s work is his love and dedication to pulling from that legitimate history. Within the context of history, The Hidden seems to take place not long after 1614 and outlawing of Christianity in Japan, given Usagi’s surprise at the fumi-e image he was ordered to step on in order to pass into town in the previous issue.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles / Usagi Yojimbo (Extended Edition)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles / Usagi Yojimbo, The Expanded Edition. If it feels like you’ve seen this cover before, it’s because you have. The ‘expanded’ edition is now the third printing of this one-shot. First, there was a regular printing, then a hardcover with a few extras, now the expanded edition. Since this is a reprint, let’s reprint my initial review and move on from there.

TMNT and Usagi have a long and storied past.  Both creations first appeared in 1984 as black and white, creator owned, anamorphic characters, with asian influences. By 1989, the Turtles’ franchise was picking up steam, and a conversation between Usagi Creator Stan Sakai and TMNT co-creator Peter Laird resulted in Usagi being released as part of the TMNT Playmate Toys line...
