  • DeCarlo Rules: I got my World of Archie #54 digest(s) [long story] yesterday. A wave of relief washes over me every time I open a digest and see that ad stating "NOW featuring NEW STORIES in every Comics Double Digest". I do appreciate getting that reassurance that classic Archie stories are continuing. Pretty good Christmas issue (I read all those stories right away). Just wanted to say that with every new story I read by the Kennedy brothers, I am more impressed. The amount of detail they put into every panel is incredible!

  • Chillableus: Agree with you, Jon. I'm glad that she did, though - I've always liked Archie/Veronica better than Archie/Betty.
    November 30, 2015, 02:54:07 PM
  • invisifan: Betty was caught up in the moment — Archie was taken by surprise … teen hormones & stubborn streaks prevailed until it got beyond an easy salvage job …
    November 30, 2015, 11:26:53 AM
  • JonInIowaCity: Yeah, my theory is that they would have eventually made up if not for Veronica's arrival.
    November 30, 2015, 10:02:31 AM
  • Chillableus: Archie and Betty were overdramatic, but isn't that what teens are all about? Besides, kudos to Waid for suprising everyone.

Futurama, Archer, American Dad, are all well-worth watching.

Archie has always seemed a little off-centaur, to me.

Sorry, I'm channeling my Inner Reggie, today.

In a way, the most successful archie Rip-Off is Japan's Urusei Yatsura.

Urusei Yatsura (うる星やつら?) is a comedic manga series written and illustrated by Rumiko Takahashi and serialized in Weekly Shōnen Sunday from 1978 to 1987. Its 374 individual chapters were published in 34 tankōbon volumes. It is the story of Ataru Moroboshi, and the alien Lum, who believes she is Ataru's wife after he accidentally proposes to her. The series makes heavy use of Japanese mythology, culture and puns. The series was adapted into an anime TV series produced by Kitty Films and broadcast on Fuji Television affiliates from 1981 to 1986 with 195 episodes. Eleven OVAs and six theatrical movies followed, and the series was released on VHS, Laserdisc, DVD, and Blu-ray Disc in Japan.

An alien race known as the Oni arrive on Earth to invade the planet. Instead of taking over the planet by force, the Oni give humans a chance to fight for the rights to the planet by taking part in a competition. The competition is a variant of the game of tag (literally "the game of the Oni" in Japanese), in which the human player must touch the horns on the head of the Oni player within one week. The computer selected human player is Ataru Moroboshi, a lecherous, unlucky and stupid high school student from the Japanese city of Tomobiki, and the Oni player is Princess Lum, daughter of the leader of the Invasion force.

Despite his initial reluctance to take part in the competition, Ataru becomes interested in the game when he meets Lum. When the competition begins, Lum surprises everyone by flying away and Ataru finds himself unable to catch her. Before the last day of the competition, Ataru's girlfriend Shinobu Miyake encourages Ataru by pledging to marry him if he wins. On the final day of the competition, Ataru wins the game by stealing Lum's bikini top, which prevents her from protecting her horns in favor of protecting her modesty. In celebrating his victory, Ataru expresses his joy at being able to get married; however, Lum misinterprets this as a proposal from Ataru and accepts on live television. Despite the misunderstanding, Lum falls in love with Ataru and moves into his house.

Despite Ataru's lack of interest in Lum and attempts to rekindle his relationship with Shinobu, Lum frequently interferes and Shinobu loses interest in Ataru. Still, Ataru's flirtatious nature persists despite Lum's attention. Lum attempts to stop him from flirting, which results in Ataru receiving powerful electric shock attacks from Lum as punishment. Two characteristics of Ataru are particularly strong: his pervertedness and his bad luck that draws to him all weirdos of the planet, the spirit world and even galaxy.

Later Lum begins attending the same school as Ataru despite his objections. Lum develops a fan base of admirers among the boys of the school, including Shutaro Mendou, the rich and handsome heir to a large corporation that all the girls from Tomobiki have a crush on. Despite their romantic interest, none of Lum's admirers will risk upsetting Lum by trying to force her and Ataru apart, although this doesn't stop them from trying to get Ataru punished due to his bad behavior, and interfering every time they get close to him.


All the elements of the Archie Romantic Triangle are there, including Ataru Moroboshi (Girl Crazy Teen/Archie),  LUM Invader as the universal adored hottie (Veronica), Shinobu Miyake (Girl Next Door/Betty), & Shutaro Mendou, as Reggie.

Yes.. "Pussycats Plus One" from Sabrina vol 2 #17 (the 90s sitcom-inspired version drawn by Dan DeCarlo). It's a really fun four-part story. Also, "Model Behavior" from Sabrina vol 3 #67 (the manga version). I also recall a one page gag, drawn by Holly G!, in which Salem meets the Pussycats (available in the Magic of Sabrina TPB), and in Little Archie's Power Pets, Salem records a video with them at the end of part 2. Hope this helps!

Was there ever a story where Sabrina met Josie & the Pussycats?

The Sabrina collection, with original De Carlo material, is pushed back until 2017, if it sees press at all.

I liked Hot Stuff.

But, you couldn't publish that innocent kids' comic today!
The Fundys would accuse you of promoting Satanism, & Fox News would Gang-F*ck you.
Even the GOP Presidential Clown Car would sing in the choir of your ruination.
All over a comic as tame as milk.  :idiot2: :o ??? ::)

These mood swings scare me, quite frankly.
Do not try to tough this out on your own!
You need help.

Start at school.
Ask your guidance councilor about community mental health.
If you have access to a MD, talk to your doctor.
A spiritual leader (Reverend, Priest, etc) may help.
Remember : carefully phrase your request. Word it in advance, so they don't over-react.
After all, Adults + Authority = Jerk.
