I thought you lived in No.Cal. What's a "small town" in No.Cal?
(lemme guess. They're still showing "Star Wars" at the local multiplex?)

Anyway, Turner had a tentative deal with Harvey Comics. Something
happened with Harvey Comics where they were bought out, or went
bankrupt, or some junk, then Archie Comics got the rights to H-B stuff.
Archie supposedly was interested in a Kats title, but was more or less
*told* not to pursue it by their parent company -- also Turner. Christian
Tremblay was talking to Dark Horse comix who were interested enough
to schedule several meetings, but in the end brushed off Christian with
the comment that Peej is referring to. The last mention of a Kats-title
to Turner reps came at SanDiego comicon, where a rep from a comics
outfit approached a Turner rep to ask about a possible Kat-comic, and was
laughed off. How professional.

"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"
