All The Futures a $1.29 Could Buy

When I told my wife I used to read Archie comics she laughed and asked why I didn’t read “real” comics.ArchieComicsLogo_sm(1)

I explained that at age ten I needed to escape but I was too much of a realist for heroics.  Super powers felt out of reach but driving a crappy car and having two girlfriends seemed reasonable enough.  At the time I would have settled for the car so I could as drive far away as possible.

I had very simple dreams back then.

  1. If you really wanted Archie, and a “Real” comic. There was a cross over between Archie and The Punisher. I’m serious…

    Loved Archies though I hated Archie. What a lame-o.

    Put in that context Archie really is “every man”!
