Yeah, I'm thinking that there will be several people who have to pull their Archives/old issues out of storage, so waiting until Sunday night/Monday to officially begin still sounds like the best plan to me.

What to expect: lots of wild new EDE theories on obscure points of continuity from 50 years ago, one panel background characters suddenly becoming major superstars on Legion World, and plenty of use of the word "space"!

It appears ... I only have Archives 1 until 7, and then only a few issues until the end of Grell's run.

This is space-deficient!

not really ...

hehehehehe I just read a few panels of the first archive!!!

Magnetic Eyes and Thought Beams!!!!!!


OK I will do my best to resist premature posting. from now on.

There's a few I've only ever read one, like the 2nd half of the first Mordru story that I'm really looking forward to!

Was Imra always ... and Iron Butt?!?!?! We shall see.

From the cover of Adv 247 ... it sure looks like it.

I miss that wacky helmet Cos used to wear ... I think some of these simple and unexplained and completely impractical at first glance accoutrements can seem even more futuristic than an explanation or *accessible* tech.

Like those crazy resurrection lightning rods ... some future tech should just seem like magic ... as if we are neanderthals looking at cell phones after being defrosted in the Arctic.

"Too ordinary"

That's like when they tell you on Project Runway your fashion is "Boring" ... the ultimate insult!

I love the idea of a group Archives read-through. We may even get so thorough on topics that we'll have to talk about obscure characters from the first archive like Colossal Boy and Phantom Girl!
