  • irishmoxie: I'm thinking of creating a pull list (especially since archiecomics.com is over a week late with Archie #2, which I bought digitally anyway. Gotta support!) but there's still no guarantee I'll get it on release day. Anyone else have problems with getting stuff from archiecomics.com way late??

  • terrence12: PTF Really what i said is i am sorry,I understand now and  i was just saying if archie would meet and rescue archie (the 40s and 50s one) during the climax and would also  meet the reboot one near the end of this fan fiction thats all.

  • terrence12: Hey PTF you didn't reply my answer in this thread:http://www.archiefans.com/fan-fiction/archie-in-universes-at-peril/msg86347/?topicseen;PHPSESSID=3617c1d4a5c280b1cad43e5574d97a52#new  So this fanfiction is about archie teaming up with alternate versions of himself saving and restoring their worlds and universe  from a powerful threat which is an affectionate parody of comic crossover events like DC crisis on infinite earths and marvel's secret wars am i right?If it does then do you think the current archie will meet the original archie from the 40s and 50's which might be the prime universe so that  the big bad of this fanfiction will set to destroy it and end the various counterparts of archie along with every universe?  And do you think near the end of your fan fiction tale you made there will be a part with  archie before  going back to his restored universe he will then  meet the reboot counterpart of himself in his universe ? Its something like a passing of the torch moment.

Valerie from Josie and the Pussycats...as White?
« on: February 29, 2012, 06:51:54 PM »
Has anyone noticed that in the reprint of the Josie story "Purely Primitive," the character of Valarie is inked as a white woman? This is from the '91 Archie Andrews...Where Are You Digest #75. Val is drawn with a different hairstyle and Josie calls her by name. Melody, Josie, and Allen all look the same.

I am going to post a pic of Josie and Valerie from the story.

Is this a mistake or did Val get a character re-vamp at some point? Not sure about the original appearance of the story.

Initially, I was thinking that they had turned Valerie into Pepper...but the lack of glasses tells me no.

But, the fact that they called her 'Valerie' tells me that it was more than likely an error in colouring.

Wasn't there another coloring error that happened to Chuck?

I've seen that happen in the occasional panel (a colourist's oversight), and it was more common in the old days. That haircut doesn't look like Val's, though- was it from the "Pussycats" era? Because that was when Val was introduced- they may have just made some random other character named Valerie to be an "extra friend" or something, as a one-shot character. I haven't read the story, though- is it clearly the Pussycat Valerie aside from the colouring?

I once read a pussycat story where there was no black girl, so Valerie must have been white in it.
Archie: Betty, our Betty! Dear, sweet Betty!
Jughead: Blonde girl, cute smile, about so high...dates some guy named Mantle, right?

I think it was either an extra character or a colorist error. Maybe it was the pre-Val Val. Josie calls her by name, and the trio is Josie, Val, and Mel. It is a story about the men fighting...not a musical story...so it is hard to say! I was wondering if anyone else knew more!

It can't be pre-Val, as it looks like the artist is Stan Goldberg.  It was Dan Decarlo who created Josie and her world.


I have so many Archies, I've lost count!  :D
