Did You Know?


The cover of the comic book visible in Mrs. Crabapple's drawer of confiscated items is an altered version of "The Mighty Crusaders" #1, published in 1983 by Red Circle Comics, a fantasy/superhero imprint of Archie Comics. On the altered cover, the book is re-titled "The Red Circle", and yellow text explosion graphics have been added to the bottom of the image. A second comic is partially visible underneath, extending past the lower edge and left-hand side of the top comic book and partially obscured by the Game Lad portable video game system. This second comic book is "The Mighty Crusaders" #4 (Red Circle Comics, 1983). See more »
