A Trip To Your 8-Bit Fountain Of Youth With “Centipede #1” On The Wednesday Run

Today’s a great day!

It’s July 12th and that means that it’s my birthday! Yes! Thank you for all the birthday wishes…twenty-nine years young forever, I say, although it’s been “forever” for a number of years already.

But that’s one of the great things about being interested in, a fan of, and a part of, the pop culture community: you never really do grow old. With the comic books, movies, television programs, board and card games, toys, music, cartoons, and video games, you always seem to find a way to stay youthful.

At heart, at least.

And if you were to subtract twenty nine years from today’s date, and then subtract a few more, and then a few more for added measure, you’d have one of the greatest years of my youth – as well as many of you out there!

It’s the early 1980’s.

And you’re hanging out at the local arcade.

And your hair is long.

And it’s on purpose.

And you’re playing Centipede.

And it’s awesome!

Relive that youthful glory with today’s comic book-styled modern release of Centipede #1!
