You're too kind.

Blame Archie's distributor, which Ken Penders cites as the reason for
the failure of the Princess Sally miniseries.

WHOA!! Good eye! I missed it myself. You're right; very Japanese
style, almost like a cross between Sonic and Astroboy (hey, if you're
going to mention a robot in the same breath as Sonic--or any other
Mobian--the robot should be a Good Guy(TM)).

As someone pointed out in their post, the slur was used particularly in
Starfleet Academy. If memory serves, someone else mentioned working on
a crossover story and I admitted the idea had crossed my mind, so I
posted the synopsis. Don't expect to see it any time soon; I've got
plenty to do in Real Life(TM). In fact, as soon as I finish going
through my e-mail, I have to work on a term paper about the book of

According to Ken Penders' recent posts, it doesn't look like they're
accepting submissions at this time. Also, KP says that there seems to
be a limit of tolerance with continuing stories with the core comic
readership out there (and that may be one reason why so many titles are
dying). So they make do with the pages allotted them each month. I
wouldn't mind continuing stories, either, but there seems to be a
three-issue limit.

Nice to see you back,
