To have all the stories connected by the same catastrophe or event would imply the making of each episode as part of
a general common plot for the whole book, walking away from the SELF CONCLUSIVE stories concept and this would slow down the ultimate resolution.

I think the goal is to play and bring back to life these FORGOTTEN Public Domain characters or the combination of some of then.


Mowgli and Sherlock Holmes against the Blue Zombies in Bangkok.
Or Captain Spark and The Black Spectra fighting against the invasion of Alien robots, or
Sheena and Mantra against the Ring of drug and sex traffickers, or
The Thunder and Magic boy against the Cybernetic Computer Hackers from Vilsvania.

Then get all these individual stories together in the same MASH book and BAAING !!!
this can work. does anyone have any issues with doing this?

like ive said, I PERSONALLY like the idea of SOME kind of story-connecting element, just so it feels like its SORTA all linked somehow. (like the hellboy portal jumping element)

but it does not have to. we all just doing our own individual stories is perfectly fine and can be lots of fun. I would be on board for this if everyone else is.

Individual stories would be a lot less by way of headache; especially since this time each story can't pick up where another left off, like Monster Mash did. Any kind of "crossover" type storyline would need at least a few simultaneous events.

I vote for the Individual Stories idea, with the Time Anomaly Morg suggested as connecting link. Each story needs to be a self contained with its own villains/problems from the rip in space-time - Dinosaurs, Nazis, whatever - with only one or two stories dealing with the CAUSE of the anomaly. That would allow for characters from the past to appear in the present - and if we're planning on making this a regular thing, creators can choose to leave those characters "trapped" in the present, to continue the story for later issues.

Maybe the time anomaly is also opening rips in the multiverse, bringing all these characters together to a single canon/continuity? In case we do a crossover in the future.
