A Crossover Four Years in the Making!

You would think that Michael Carlyle and Professor Alan would cover the same coimcs more often. The fact that there have been so few overlaps between the Crapbox and the Quarter-Bin speaks to the sheer volume of comic books throughout the years that have been massively over-printed and tragically under-sold.

But when we overlap, it's an occasion to be celebrated!

Waaaayyyy back on Quarter-Bin 6, the Professor covered the first issue of the post-apocalyptic series "Hex." That episode can be found here. 

And today, Michael covers the very same book over on his blog. With lots and lots of pretty pictures. What did he think of the issue? Go over there and find out!
