Oh God, when I heard that the Kat-comic was destined for Harvey's dungeon, I thought
Razor and T-Bone would suffer some hideously disfiguring multi-issue disease until someone
actually *looked* at the model sheets. I'd thought things were as bad as they could get, then I
heard *Archie* was going to get the title. "Archie"'s rules of engagement are as follows:

1) Every character in the foreground cannot be shown to scale.
2) Every character in a medium shot is to be shown in black silhouette, unless they're really
    far away in a background shot, in which case they're red.
3) No two issues are allowed to be pencilled by the same artist - if by some inexplicable
    Act of God this does occur - change the inker. We have a reputation to hold up.
4) Make sure no two consecutive issues are distributed to the same city. Cleveland gets
    issues 1, 3 and 5, whereas Vancouver should get 2, 4 and 6. Never the twain shall meet.

'Course none of this came to pass anyway. Harvey croaked, Turner prohibited Archie from
launching a title, and Dark Horse told the Tremblay Bros. that "Cat characters don't work".

(Oh yeah, the Turner rep laughed in the face of a comix professional who made the mistake
  of asking an intelligent question at Comicon: "How about a Kats Comic?")
"Dedicated to the indomitable spirit of the sled dogs that relayed
 antitoxin six hundred miles over rough ice, across treacherous waters,
 through Arctic blizzards from Nenana to the relief of stricken Nome in
 the winter of 1925. Endurance, Fidelity, Intelligence." -- "Balto"
