Your Pal Archie #1

Story & Inks: Ty Templeton
Art: Dan Parent
Colors: Andre Szymanowicz
Lettering: Jack Morelli

Two new stories and a throwback story from the town of Riverdale. Archie Andrews has always been the the nice, reliable guy; hence the first story. Archie offers to help Jughead learn to drive, as with everyone in the gang leaving town Jughead would not have a ride to the town soda shop. After every driving school in town (and the whole state) throw him out, Jughead asks his friend Archie to help him out. Archie agrees, because he is a great guy, and takes Jughead in the middle of nowhere to help his driving. But Jughead may be a hopeless case.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles / Usagi Yojimbo

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. Since then, the two properties have crossed over in comics, toys, and television, as well as cheeky references to rabbits in the 1993 and 2014 Turtle films.

This month the world gets to see these amazing characters meet yet again in not one, but two, mediums...

Centipede #1

Writer: Max Bemis
Art: Eoin Marron

Based on the classic Atari game! When a terrifying creature from beyond the stars attacks his planet, Dale’s journey begins. But he is not out to save his world. It is already too late for that. As the lone survivor, the only thing he wants is revenge!

Writer Max Bemis (Worst X-Man Ever, Foolkiller) and artist Eoin Marron (Sons of Anarchy Redwood Original) bring you a tale of survival and vengeance like you’ve never seen before.

Centipede is a part of Dynamites current line of comics based on old Atari games.  Their first one, Swordquest, I reviewed the first issue and found it interesting how they tackled the plot for that game.

Now for Centipede I will admit I always assumed it was a sci-fi plot to the game...
