DeCarlo Rules: Can't remember the last Archie floppy comic I bought that wasn't a #1 issue...

DeCarlo Rules: Not retired, but it seems like floppy one-shots will be more frequent compared to series.

Tuxedo Mark: Vol 2 of the The Riverdale Diaries graphic novel series is now available for preorder. It stars Veronica and will come out on November 16. Oddly, Vol. 2 is available on Kindle, whereas Vol. 1 seems to be a physical-only release.

DeCarlo Rules: Is it just me, or does it seem kind of weird that ACP is still crediting Victor Gorelick as Co-President/Editor on their credit pages? I can see where they'd still want to honor his memory, but...

Betty's ponytail should be attributed to Harry Lucey, not Dan DeCarlo. And DeCarlo's becoming a main artist at Archie Comics has a lot more to do with DeCarlo's work (on Millie the Model, et. al.) drying up at Marvel when their distributor, American News, went bust, which left Martin Goodman with no options but to let Independent News (owned by the same people who owned DC Comics) handle their distribution... and the deal was that Independent would only accept eight titles a month from Goodman, which limited him to sixteen bi-monthly titles. That effectively put a lot of Marvel artists out of work, since prior to that, Marvel had been publishing something more like 40 or 50 titles a month.

I don't think Brian Cronin has studied Archie Comics too much, since you can find lots of better examples of sexiness than that one cover Harry Lucey drew depicting B&V exercising in a gym. One would think he'd never seen an issue of JOSIE with Melody in it, or several examples of Cheryl's appearances, not to mention that one story where Mr. Cooper is about ready to kill Archie after he thinks he's had sex with Betty while they spent a night together in a motel room after running out of gas, and Betty's clothes got wet when she fell in the lake, so of course she had to remove them to dry them out... He gets a little too hung up on the fact that the word "SEXY" appeared in a word balloon in big letters in that one story.

He's also incorrectly identified the artist of "Saved by the Bell" as Dan DeCarlo, when it was, in actual fact, Dan DeCarlo JUNIOR, and says so right in the credits.
