Woah, Chuck Dixon writing Archie? That's... something else.

Also, yo! Is that another Honey the Cat cameo appearance on the cover of Sonic the Hedgehog #268?! Given that the solicit makes it sound like a proper adaptation of Sonic the Fighters, maybe she'll finally be introduced in the book. That would be so cool! I love how Ian integrates all the weird, obscure bits of the game canon into the comic.

I really want to be excited for this, Klarion rules. But maaaaan, Ann Nocenti just isn't the writer she was back in her Daredevil days. But who knows, maybe it'll turn out alright?

Woah, that's one heck of a preview.

Love these characters, and I want to be glad that the new creative team is adding a bit of levity to the banter that Brian Wood scripts always lack, but man, I dunno about this. The dialogue is seriously clunky; nobody talks like that. It reads like an Arrow script, but without the charm of the actors to carry it.

Also, I really hope they don't always call Jubilee by her full name every single time.

I was looking forward to the return of the War Machine armor but it looks like it's some kind of alternate universe? Disappointed if true. =(

They are missing Namor

I thought the same thing. Guess he's just too busy of a guy these days.

With all due respect to Joe Mad, I think Ryan Stegman is way better suited to this. I enjoyed the first issue well enough, but didn't pick up the second or third; I think I'll be back on board for this.

I appreciate that ComicVine never mentions Harper is handicapped, in the headline of the article or the content. Like, "Archie Comics announces a new character" as opposed to "Archie Comics announces a new disabled character", which is how most news sites seem to be writing their headlines.

But yeah, as someone in a wheelchair, the picture of Archie sitting in her lap strikes me as bewilderingly tone deaf. That's... not okay. Super disrespectful. They get points for trying, I guess.

Mike McKone's a super cool dude, met him at this year's Wizard World. Even got him to do a super awesome Adam Strange sketch that hangs above my computer!

@humanrocket: Ah, whoops! It's late, I guess; too tired to notice it was a joke. =P
