  • JonInIowaCity: I might have exaggerated with "emergency." More like "unexpected." I went to the podiatrist about chronic heal pains. She gave me inserts for that, but became immediately concerned about an infected toe nail that I'd been ignoring. She numbed the toe and snipped off a portion of the nail! It was kind of freaky!!!

  • Magic Necromancer: why did i read bingo as bongo comics...
    August 27, 2014, 06:54:25 PM
  • bettyforever: @SaveFearow - I would appreciate if you scanned them. I would especially love to be able to read the Bingo stories. When I was growing up, I had quite a few Bingo issues, but got rid of them over the years.

  • Magic Necromancer: hey guys i pre-ordered the sonic countdown to chaos there anyway i can skip ahead since the second tpb doesn't arrive until december?
    August 26, 2014, 06:11:56 PM
  • SaveFearow: But Lil Jinx and Bingo are not ongoing. They are older stories that get reprinted sometimes. And maybe people would like to read them?
    August 26, 2014, 02:28:02 PM
  • SaveFearow: I don't scan every comic I have because I want people to still buy the issues and not lower Archie's sales.
    August 26, 2014, 02:27:14 PM
  • SaveFearow: about the gallery: would anyone be interested in me scanning Lil Jinx or Bingo stories and keeping them in a separate folder?

if anything Archie should put more thought into making more titles that go outside the tired high school misadventures

Afterlife showed what they had to do to get everyone's attention and since most comic book shops aren't sold that high on archie comics it's not like sticking to the same old formula will convince them otherwise

Why would more high school titles that don't have the love triangle do any better?

I'm not saying high school titles at all...with or without the love triangle the majority of comic book fans just don't care anymore and comic book shops don't bother to order them unless you know the owner personally or you have them special order it(who knows if they'll do that though)

The love triangle has served its purpose. I am not saying saying those stories were bad - they were great, once upon a time. But now it sure seems like they can tell us no new interesting stories about it. Everything has been done, used and reused and recycled. Which is why I blv the characters need new stories, new motivations.
Archie: Betty, our Betty! Dear, sweet Betty!
Jughead: Blonde girl, cute smile, about so high...dates some guy named Mantle, right?

I wonder if AC is going in that direction in the newest B & V where they're leaving Riverdale. Please let Archie suffer, and have the girls replacing them NOT fall for him while B & V are gone!  :smiley6600:
I'll give you a 'Ronica-like saying: "Shut up, and let me take over your mundane and miserable lives."
