    I have never once, not one time in my entire life, ever been even slightly tempted to pick up an Archie title. I have a few issues that my dad got me when I was a kid at some auction, but I threw those in a shoebox and read and then reread the first issues of The Maxx and Turok that were also in the box, and a few others, Strikeforce Moritori and Uncle Scrooge and the like.
