  • mitsuhoney: I wonder how come Archie Comics never thought to release special books to collect the original series (i.g. "Archie Complete Collection Vol. 1 - Issues 1-10") I think that would be a great idea! Will definitely reel me in!

Talking on a cellphone while the plane is in the air? I don't know who is worse - Archie for playing the field so shamelessly or Veronica for spying on him while she's away. They're both on the wrong side of the ledger in this story.

The sixties trade looks very promising, especially with that previewed story which I've never seen before!

Personally, I think Archie is creating more of a shameful act by calling Veronica "Lambchop"! ;D

Maybe Archie just had a fondness for sock-puppets and ventriloquist acts when he was younger? :2funny:

????It's just a term of endearment...I don't see anything wrong with it. You can call someone "Baby" and that does not mean you think that person an actual infant.

I get it...it just sounds kind of cheesy and dated!  I don't know too many 17 year olds who would text their girlfriends saying "I LUV U LAMB CHOP"! :2funny:

Exactly. It's cheesy and outdated (was it ever indated?). When I first read that line, I was like "WTF? No teenager talks like this."




Betty Cooper + Cheryl Blossom. It's inevitable.

I dunno... I could see Jughead saying this to girlfriend very easy-- maybe him smackin' his lips with a wide-eyed look at the same time!  :o ;D

I think that they should do a new story for all the "Best of..." books.

For the 60's - they should have "Archie meets Mr. Natural" or maybe "Archie meets the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers"  - Do you think R. Crumb would do an Archie book?

:)

okay.   Bad idea..... really bad idea... :)
No matter where I go, there I am.  Creepy.

Okay, the Sherry Lewis & her puppet, Lambchop was obviously too obscure, too far a stretch, and too poor a joke! >_<

Confession:  I watched "Lamb-Chop's Play Along" when it first came out. (insert sheepish grin here)
