Coherent Super Stories
#39 - "Dead Stars": A 1950s SF short story bought for a possible new
magazine in the 1970s, but when the market collapsed it was used as a backup
piece. A deliberate attempt to write a 50s-style "Clever Idea" story.
Featuring the Great Work.
LL&DD Vignette "Two
Fingers": Doctor Developer is showing Lady Lawful one of his old villain
haunts, and it turns out she has a personal connection.
#13 - COAPing Strategies: Bureaucracy moves slowly, except when it
doesn't. Events of The Office (ASH #107-109) inspired world governments to
finally get their paperwork in order regarding the bewildering array of
Alternative Legal Persons.
ASH #123: City
of Night Part 4 - The Midnight Oil: A bold plan is hatched to get into
Berlin via the Office, but will it cause more red tape than it cuts through?

WARNING: RAW TEXT FILES|
An increasing number of browsers (Internet Exploder, most mobile browsers)
are treating raw text files as if they're HTML files and trying to evaluate
them. This leads to hideous formatting issues, and there's just too many
files here for me to go back and put pre tags on them all. The ebook
versions are recommended for mobile users, otherwise download the files and
open them in a word processor or something.
The Academy of Super-Heroes Universe is an imprint on
rec.arts.comics.creative owned and run by Dave Van Domelen. The setting is
mostly in the 2020s, a generation after a massive disaster wiped out nearly
half of humanity and took with it all but a handful of the world's
superhumans. Since then, Dave has been joined by several other writers,
including Matt Rossi III, Marc Singer, Tony Pi and Wil Alambre, although
several later moved on to professional writing careers. Thanks to Wil
Alambre for an idea I used on this page (putting the latest issue box in).
And thanks to Joe Singleton for the new ASH and Coherent Comics logos!
How To Read ASH
If you're a new reader, you might find the hundred or so stories in this
archive a bit daunting. This file is intended to help you get
started. Tweaked on 9/13/02. You might find the more recent ebook version
more useful, though.|
This contains all the active and inactive series in the ASH Universe, plus a
few "Virtual Trade Paperbacks" that make crossovers a bit easier to follow by
putting all the links in order in one place. Last updated:
