  • Steveinthecity: I don't see how the mini comic subject matter has anything to do with "establishing gun control".  Maybe Donald Trump! Would care to clarify his statement?

  • JonInIowaCity: Seriously, what mini comic? I've looked on ther app, their FB page, their Twitter feed. I'm not seeing any new "mini comic." And certainly nothing touching on guns or gun violence or gun safety.

  • spazaru: My friend who owns a comic shop gave it to me yesterday, irishmoxie.  It's no big deal.  Just a couple of Halloween reprints.  Not worth any big search.

Other Media / Sailor...Veronica?
« on: March 31, 2010, 02:30:04 PM »
This is what happens when I get bored. Somebody take the internet away from me.

DracheaRannak on DeviantArt has a very fun Sailor Scout Dressup Game (from the anime Sailor Moon) that I often play instead of doing things like chores or homework. It was during one of these dressup sprees that I made Sailor Scout versions of a few Archie girls! I thought I'd share because they amused me, at least.

It would also be fun if you guys posted any versions you guys made, since the color choices for mine were kind of random and I'm sure somebody else could do better XD And I'll leave it to somebody else to make Sailor Archie  :buck2:

All About Archie / Riverdale High's Mascot?
« on: January 29, 2010, 01:39:48 AM »
Kind of a random question, but has it ever been stated what the mascot of Riverdale High School is? I seem to remember a story where Dilton ended up wearing the costume for a few basketball games, and I think it was some sort of generic bear/wildcat thing. But does anybody know what exactly it's supposed to be?  ???

Your Story / It Started at a Laundromat
« on: January 07, 2010, 10:47:10 PM »
I figured I may as well relate how I got started in Archie, for posterity...or something  :D

Back in our old duplex, we didn't have a washer or dryer in the house, so we went to a nearby laundromat once or twice a week for clean clothes. I was about seven or eight years old, so I normally ended up going with my mom and getting bored out of my mind waiting for the loads to finish. So one time my mom and I stopped at the grocery store beforehand to get some snacks, and she showed me an Archie Double Digest. She said that she loved them when she was a kid, so she would buy one for me to read at the laundromat if I wanted. Eager to get my hands on anything to pass the time, I accepted.

I loved it. I probably read that digest three times while I waited for the laundry to finish, and then reread it for a few days until I could convince my dad to get me another one. Archie comics became a regular item to pick up on trips to the super market. Mostly I got Betty and Veronica comics or Archie and Pals Double Digests. I got my god cousin into them, too, so we would read them together and talk about the stories and characters.

Time went on, and I gradually grew away from Archie comics (along with my cousin). For 5 or 6 years I mostly forgot about them, occasionally seeing something online to remind me but for the most part not thinking about them. Then, near the end of this summer, my family learned that we were going to have to move and slowly started the packing process. I put off my room for a while since it was a disaster zone, but I finally got around to it in late October, and I happened to find what little was left of my Archie comic collection in my closet. Looking for any excuse to put off packing, I started to re-read them and remembered how much I loved them! All the characters and my favorite stories came back to me, and it was like meeting old friends again after a long time apart.

Shortly after that, I started looking around the internet for Archie stuff, finding the official site and this forum, aaaand that's how I joined  ;) So there is my Archie story!

All About Archie / The Artists of Archie
« on: January 07, 2010, 04:33:43 AM »
As I've been looking around here, I've noticed that a lot of people comment on the different artists that have drawn Archie comics over the years. How some prefer drawing certain hairstyles or draw something specific really well. Back when I was reading them as a kid, I didn't really pay attention to the details of the art, but now I'm interested.

I would really appreciate any help you guys could give me in differentiating the Archie artists. Any "trademark" the different artists have or anything of the sort that makes their work recognizable. I've tried looking back through what I can find of my old comics, but it seems that they don't print the artists' names in the digests, which is mostly what I have. So any pointers in giving myself a crash course in Archie artists would be great! Thanks guys!   :)

General Discussion / The "What Song Are You Listening To?" Topic
« on: December 07, 2009, 09:58:37 PM »
Pretty self explanatory, just post the name of the song you're listening to and the artist who preforms it. Or the show/video game/movie it's from, if that works too. It's a cool way to find new music ^_^

Right now, I'm listening to Two Out of Three Ain't Bad by Meat Loaf.

Other Media / Archie Look-Alikes
« on: December 07, 2009, 09:47:30 PM »
I thought it would be fun to try and think of other people/characters that look like the characters in Archie Comics =D

For starters, Bianca from Beverly Hills Teens always kind of reminded me of Veronica, with her long black hair and expensive clothes. Not to mention she's rich, spoiled, and crafty, though I don't think Veronica is as antagonistic as Bianca. (It's also kind of amusing that her rival, Lark, is a blond, and the object of their affections, Troy, looks like he's got reddish hair in some shots)

Can you guys think of any more?

Welcome/Introductions / Newbie here!
« on: December 03, 2009, 08:55:20 PM »
Hey all! I'm Blues Drive Monster (aka Blues, Monty, Kat, really I'll respond to most anything XD), and I am new!

Let's see, I'm 18, female, and live in Kansas in the US (Kansas: Wheat Grows Here). I know there's a "My Story" forum, but my story is fairly short. My mom introduced me to Archie comics when I was way younger, about seven or eight years old, and my god-cousin and I read them for a few years. I kind of fell out of the habit of reading them. Then a few weeks ago, while I was packing up my room to move to a new house, I found some of my old Double Digests and Veronica comics and reread them. I remembered how hooked on them I was, and now I'm back! XD

I'm a bit of an Archie newb, though. Like I said, I haven't really read much for a long while, and being a poor teenager I don't have much money to buy new comics. But I am here to learn!

My non-Archie interests include reading (books and other comics, my favorite genres are fantasy and sci-fi), writing, drawing, anime/manga, listening to music, playing video games, and animals. My favorite Archie characters are Veronica, Jughead, and Reggie.

This place looks really friendly and fun, so I hope I can find a place here! ^^
