  1. Happy Friday the 13th!

    I think there are some missteps in this story, the biggest one being the ending--I mean it's not the next day, is it? and Betty is the only one to avoid bad luck, isn't she?--but I also don't get why the old lady goes after the cop or--to a lesser extent--why Moose singles out Reggie.

    And, though I kinda like both, I don't think the cop clawing up the panel or having a rubber body that a Moose-thrown Reggie's head can superdeform through to his back really fit the rest of the story.

    Still, I do like it. The police back-up screeching in & the crowd of onlookers are cool touches. It's also interesting that there's no real main character. I'm tempted to say it stars the Archie gang, but that no-name cop gets a lot of 'screen time'. And--except some motivations I've mentioned--it's perfectly clear what's going on & how the characters are feeling.
