Out ant Out for Archie Fans only .Using the word 'Treat' will be lesser praise for Archie fans . It 's like eating full meals for 3 times in a day .Now let us move to the story
The story begins with the fort [Time Machine] reaching a place in 20th century after a successful adventure by Archie and crew .They were hoping to land in the , but the place seems odd . They were welcomed by small robots and taken to the leaders . Actually this place is the future London and all the works are done by small robots and there is no war in this place . They were peace loving people and have forgotten about making weapons. Hence Archie is feeling is very bore as there will be no adventurer here and propose a idea of leaving this place .
All of sudden they see some spacecrafts in the space . Archie sense some troubles and its fears have come true as the space ship contains Crulez and his men,They want to capture and rule earth .So how Archie and crew fight against Crulez to save the earth is the rest of the story
A Particular scene in the story is like this small pipes will join together to form a snake which remained me of the scenes in Enthiran Movie starring Rajini Kanth
Ad for Top 10 special started to come from this issue .A total of 16 stories were given .Out of these readers have to select 10 .

Regular reader of Lion comics will remember Inspector Danger Crime quiz very well . This was popular contest in Lion comics during the mid 90's . There was similar one series in Muthu Comics also [Starting with alphabet D I think ]
The series Inspector Danger by Werner Wejp-Olsen, is one of the few contemporary Danish comics to have international success. The series started out in either the Danish tabloid magazineBilledbladet in 1974 under the name Max Møller, and has had a history of being published by the tabloid press like Se & Hør, Ugens Rapport and Ekstrabladet. In comics, the series ran in the anthology seriesSeriemagasinet from 1983, until the series folded in 1984. Danger was also given his own series in 1988 (5 issues) and the series started getting sold to magazines and newspapers, both inside and outside Denmark.
Even though the series is a comic, this is not the selling point of the series. Around the World, the series is sold as crime puzzle for various puzzle magazines, e.g. the Danish magazine Tænkesport. It just happens to be a comic at the same time.
The main characters are the tough and rough Inspector Danger, all criminals’ worst nightmare, and Alfie, his dim-witted assistant and still a rookie after seven years on the force.
