Lost in the Shuffle: The Case of Evil Ernie

Evil Ernie comic

Staff writer, Jason Dyer, has contributed his first article: Lost in the Shuffle: The Case of Evil Ernie.

I wage a one man war to return my favorite comic book character Evil Ernie back to print. While other kids in the 90’s were reading the X-Men, with their multiple pouch uniforms. Or Superman who was red and blue for some reason, I was busy reading Evil Ernie from Chaos! Comics. I was convinced he was the best, the strongest, the most powerful superhero (well he was more an anti-hero but I digress) of all time. I debated Evil Ernie Vs Superman, Evil Ernie Vs The Hulk, Evil Ernie Vs Darth Vader with my fellow comic loving friends. To me at the time, it seemed as if Evil Ernie was unstoppable, looking back now I was so very wrong.
