In the Mirage comics, issues 6 and issue 7 have Jim McNaughton reporting for "News Center 6 Eyewitness News" on the events at the Techno Cosmic Research Institute. Further details on this agency would not be further developed. However, the name Channel 6 appears in the story “Fun with Guns” where Casey Jones and Raphael can be seen watching Channel 6 on TV. This is the first mention of the name Channel 6 before the airing of the 1987 animated series. The name would be used a few more times in the Mirage continuity.
