    Is there a.....Malcolm in the Middle manga?
    It's a collection of episode stills with word balloons, same thing with other 'Ani-Manga' titles. But it'd be nice to have something like 'Henpecked White-Collar Warrior Hal Legend' come to reality.

    Surely, this must be the largest crossover in existence. Ever heard of it?
    It looks like Howard the Duck is thinking "Why am I here? Oh man, shouldn't have taken that; I'm tripping out."
    Joris: Your story makes me want to have a little brother, Papycha. Isn't that weird?
    Kerubim: Don't worry, Jojo. You have your whole life to meet new brothers. Some you will choose, others will ruin your life, and others still will make it worth living...

    I find it more odd that Hawkman was included, he's generally considered a second/third-tier hero at best, as opposed to someone like Hulk or Robin.

    Yep, it's what's usually called fumetti. I remember these from when I was kid, the brand I saw were called Fotonovels. My friends had the Ice Castles Fotonovel. They were from before most people had VCRs, so that was one of the only ways you could re-experience a movie. It looked like this.




    Why anyone would want it now that we can access on-demand video everywhere, I have no idea.

    That was before he was ruined by 30 years of continuity resets and grimming up.
    Here's the deal, I'm the best there is. I wake up in the morning and I urinate excellence. And nobody can hang with my stuff. I'm just a big hairy American winning machine.

    I'm very humble, too.

    Believe it's French for "Merry Christmas, Archie" that Ronnie's saying. That said, makes it look even weirder redone for Christmas... :-p

    I guess in France they celebrate Christmas with pots of gold and women in cheesecake poses.

    Man, I've got to go to France.

    Marvel owned the Harvey library at some point??? This is news to me.

    They never owned it, but they licensed the characters for a very brief while when Casper was hot because of the movie.

    They also tried to license some of the characters in the 80s when Harvey was having troubles and wasn't publishing, but ended up just hiring legendary Harvey artist Warren Kremer to work on all new characters for the Star Comics line. I'm not going to say all "original" characters because what they created when their plan to license Richie Rich fell through included Royal Roy.



    Harvey sued, and this only lasted six issues.
