  • CAPalace: Some April Fools jokes on websites are funny. Rick Rolling is a bit lazy imo, but it is a classic. xD I also feel bad for Europeans and other non-Americans who don't understand April Fools Day and get horribly confused by the stuff that goes on.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @Zach -- but what does that 1980s music video have to do with Archie Comics? I thought maybe there was an Archie Comics cameo snuck in there someplace, but if there was, I missed it.

  • Magic Necromancer: @DecarloRules  no it's $46 dollars worth of comics in general....the only archie comics i regularly read are the sonic books
    Today at 01:48:18 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @ Magic Necromancer -- Wait, did you mean $46 dollars worth of ARCHIE Comics? Then that IS a lot for a month... especially if you're young and don't have a job.

    Yesterday at 07:56:00 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: $46 is not that much.  I work a part-time job 18-20 hours/week, JUST to pay for my comics... of course that includes some high-priced hardcovers almost every week.

WOW- things just keep getting more and more heated in the "Parallel Universe" storyline. I still find it bizarrely hilarious that the most realistic, adult Archie story of all time ended up dealing with a Crisis on Infinite Earths thing :). Funny to see the same events play out in both stories, with both artists.

Wow, lots of big group scenes in the first half. Wonder why- ohwait! It's our favourite comedic Archie artist, Fernando Ruiz! Of COURSE there's lots of funny group scenes. I liked the Fat Evilheart at the Halloween party.

Man, Earth-Betty Archie is a full-time teacher, a musician AND attempting to co-open a brand-new super-club in a GIGANTIC building? The guy is NUTS. Wonder if when we'll see Evil Beazley or either Universe's Cheryl again?

This is supposedly on sale on the newsstand already, according to the thread in the News and New Releases forum, but I just got back from Walgreens, and it wasn't there.

I'll have to stop by Wal-Mart on my way home from work tonight and check there.

And man, I just can't get used to Archie characters using words like "Sucky"- a word like that used to earn a SMACK for me when I was a kid, and was treated like a full-on swear at times, and now it's common enough for ARCHIE to use it casually? Life is CRAZY.

I stopped at Wal-Mart and another Walgreens on my way home yesterday, and neither of them had it. Anyone know any other places that carry it? Or would someone buy me a copy, please?

Thanks. I've rechecked my local Wal-Mart and even checked a Publix (Florida supermarket) in my town (which I've never known to carry the magazine, but they've gotten random comics in before). Neither had it. Since mom wants me to go out today to pay our tag renewals and go to Home Depot, I might go to the Wal-Mart Supercenter in the county to see if they have it (it's out of the way, but I'm getting worried; I've not had a problem locating an issue until now).

I have it but haven't finished reading it.  I've been travelling for work and just forgot I had it.  I think I finished the Veronica story but I need to revisit it to see what I did read.  I love the Christmas cover.  It's kind of a variation of Archie's Christmas Stocking #15 from 1961.

I enjoy the magazine in the sense of seeing the characters in an adult storyline but it's getting to the point for me where the progression of the story is dragging out too much and I kind of lose interest in what happens next.

I just wish that they'd inject some more drama or excitement.  For the last 5 or 6 issues, after reading them, I kind of feel like stuff happened but nothing really took place.

I like to watch True Blood, Dexter, Boardwalk Empire, Mad Men, and shows like that.  They have moments when I'm excited about what took place, shocked, disappointed, etc. but they leave me feeling some kind of emotion.  Some of the old dramatic Archie stories in the early 1970's did the same for me although at a less adult level.

The Life With Archie magazine started that way but it seems like it's lost its focus.  Archie and Veronica are separated in the ...Marries Veronica story.  Archie and Betty gave up on New York City and are now both teachers in the other story.  It doesn't seem like there's a plan for where either of the stories go next.

I think with stories like the Harry Potter series plus many of these cable series, the writers had outlined a long, complex storyline long before they started the series.  When the shows started, there was a deliberate plan for where the story was going and it slowly unfolded in front of the viewers.  The narrative progressed logically but very deliberately and it maintained your interest because you always knew that something big was about to happen in each successive episode.

I'm not sure that Life With Archie knows where it's going next.  It seems like it's in a holding pattern.  I mean, if Archie and Veronica divorce, that's the end of that story, isn't it?  Now that Archie and Betty are teachers, well, what excitement will happen other than a 40 year teaching career and retirement?

I'm not saying that there's nowhere to go.  It just seems like the writers aren't sure where they are going yet with the story.

I went to Wal-Mart Supercenter yesterday. They didn't have #14 there either. I think I'm out of options for getting it locally. Would someone please pick up a copy for me?

Try Toys R Us. They seem to carry Life With Archie pretty faithfully.

Plus, if you're having trouble finding issues of your favorite titles, subscribing is always the best way to insure getting every issue!

The closest one is an hour away.

I intend to do that, but it won't help with this issue.

Have you tried drug stores, Mark?  I have gotten almost every issue of Life With Archie from the pharmacy down the street from where I live, and most pharmacies have extensive magazine sections...
