  • DeCarlo Rules: @TM - "They" is Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Just him. HE's the writer of both AWA and ChAoS. It's HIS story. He only writes an issue when his muse inspires him. Plus he's kinda busy being the showrunner and one of the head writers for RIVERDALE, which ACP probably considers a little more important. And from Sacasa's POV, I know television work must pay a helluvalot better than writing comic books. Especially if they're comic books published by ACP. Could someone else write those horror comics? Sure, if ACP's Chief Creative Officer decided to assign the books to someone else. At that point sales would probably just nosedive anyway, so what's the point? Better to let other writers make up their own horror stories using ACP characters.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Yeah, I saw an article a few days ago about that. Can't they make sure that their initial two horror titles come out before they add two more?

666 detentions?
« on: May 26, 2016, 01:10:06 PM »
In the final issue of ARCHIE, #666, Archie has reached a new record of 666 detentions (does the Guinness Book of World Records know about this?). That's quite an accomplishment, considering there are only 180 days of school each year, for a total of 720 days of schooling to complete a High School education. That means that out of those 720 days, there were only a maximum of 54 school days (spread over four years) that Archie didn't receive a detention (unless he's racking up multiple detentions in a single day -- but then how can he possibly serve all those detentions in the same day?) I suppose the Bee could have been really worked up on a number of occasions over a single incident, and issued multiple detentions as a result of that one goof-up. Archie's so habitual though, that you'd think the Bee would have just given up on trying to give him detention (he obviously is FAR past learning any valuable lessons as a result of the punishment, and each time Archie pulls a detention, he's punishing a RHS teacher by forcing one of them to stay and monitor the Detention Room) -- but he can't, because then it sets a bad precedent and example for the rest of the school.

Unless Mr. Weatherbee can somehow recall all 73.5 years (at the time he reached #666) that he and Archie have been in school together. If that's the case, then Archie can breath a sigh of relief, knowing that his 666 detentions were accumulated over 13,230 school days, or an average of 1 detention every 20 school days (every 4 weeks). Despite that, 666 has to be an exaggeration of the number of Archie stories where he received a detention. While that's only one a month, and there was a time when ACP published more than 20 titles featuring Archie and the gang, I doubt you could really find all 666 detentions by scouring all the stories and adding them up.

And yet he still entertains hopes of graduating from Riverdale High. Unbelievable.

Perhaps each reprint of a detention story counts as a new detention?

Maybe Archie didn't really serve 666 detentions, but was only assigned that number.  You know how some criminals commit heinous acts and received 125 years prison time or some such number.

Related, there's a story in Reggie #1 where Ms. Grundy gives Reggie 30 detentions in one day, and also Miss Pownce(English Teacher) orders Reggie to stay an hour extra after school in for as long as it takes for him to complete a 1,000 PAGE essay.  I would imagine such an undertaking to be time consuming.

Interesting that you broke down the time needed to serve 666 detentions, it hadn't crossed my mind, but is funny to think about.
