Yes yes. I heard it a thousand times now from various sources Also, you don't have to be all "didja know?" about random news just to start a convo with me all the time. I've said that a thousand time, but to be blunt its going in one ear and out the other. No offense.
That said...yeah there's no way Sega or Archie would have gone through with it. I know Pen-Chan wanted to be more mature than your average kids comic, but you gotta draw the line somewhere. I mean I appreciate all the stuff Ken Penders has provided to the Archieverse, but I feel his mindset is more in devotion to his own story vs providing for for the fans.
