  1. I totally had that time travel book, the main goal of which was to find archaeopteryx! That said, I completely forgot about that weird meta ending until Ryan brought it up on the podcast. What a blast from the past, pun initially unintended.

  2. So, anyone else hoping Riverdale High’s next school play is by Shakespeare? ‘Much Ado About Jughead’, anyone? Although good disguise comedy with Betty and Veronica cross dressing, would be fun, too. Anyone else wonder how often religious figures in Shakespeare suggest the answer to a young womans’ problems lies in pretending she’s dead for a bit and then coming back? Are we meant to wonder where they got that idea?

  3. I’m glad someone else remembers those hard plastic packs of 4 comics. We used to pick them up at Toys ‘R’ Us, they were my introduction to comics and comic collecting.
