  • Vegan Jughead: Ms. Grundy would have been a total surprise but it turned out she wasn't really Ms. Grundy so I can let that go.  Killing Moose after barely seeing him last year and Midge after she was in literally one episode (and barely in it, at that) seems ridiculous.

  • DeCarlo Rules: For a character franchise that's been running for 75+ years, ARCHIE really has a pretty small cast of regulars. Apart from the core 5 and the other 6 already mentioned, there's Cheryl & Jason and Kevin... and (filed under "extended supporting players") the teachers and parents. That's pretty much it. 14 teen characters and their parents & teachers. Sabrina and Josie and their supporting casts coexist in Riverdale, but they're really their own separate franchises. If your murder victims turn out to be Jinx Malloy and Cricket O'Dell, there's not much drama in it, beyond a shrug.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Why Moose and Midge? Good question... let me know if you can think of any other ongoing characters who are more expendable, but still well-known. I guess the other likely candidates would be Dilton and Ethel, or Chuck and Nancy. I guess you could come up with a short list of other names, but are they really that well-known? Ms. Grundy was a total surprise!

  • CAPalace: Seriously though why are Moose and Midge like one of the first people to die whenever they are in the horror stories line and now Riverdale lol

  • Tuxedo Mark: I recently watched Geek House's reaction to the episode. They're very amateur. They often leave in false starts and farting around before the actual intro. Joey often struggles with the episode title, like he can't just look it up before they start recording. Joey has to announce that he's putting the video into full screen and then does a countdown. Cut all of that stuff out! In the new review, he and his wife didn't react at all to Moose and Midge being killed. It soon became apparent that they didn't even know it was Moose and Midge! Joey referred to them as the "drug addicts".

  • JonInIowaCity: I'm not saying that they're dead, but they're not listed as appearing in any future episodes in IMBD, while other minor characters are.
    October 20, 2017, 08:53:10 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: I don't think Moose and Midge are dead.  I hope not.  It's one thing to kill Jason Blossom.  Killing two characters who have been around for 68 years is something else entirely.

I'm tempted, but I haven't heard great things about subscribing with them. (Even when I was a kid subscribed to the Betty and Veronica digests, I remember them not showing up and my dad having to call lol.)

Anyone totally disagree with that? Because, like I said, I'm pretty tempted if there's still under 100 people subscribing.

Three years ago I renewed my subscriptions to the digests for 2 years. Got a great deal at that time. Of course, some books went from 10/11 times a year to 6, so the subscriptions for some books turned into 3 years. Last summer when Archie closed their offices for 2 weeks, laid off staff, and changed their distribution center - trouble started. While they were closed for 2 weeks I missed 3 books. I emailed them about it & they said the books were 'sold out'. To be fair they did extend my subscriptions, but since then I've emailed them about every 2 months for missed issues. My subscriptions run out next month & I'm not renewing. OK, now here's the good news. In Canada you can go into any WalMart & get 3 digests (you have to buy 3), regardless of the cover price, for $10.00 Canadian + tax. Most of the digests in Canada are $5.99 and $6.99. You can do the math. If I subscribe I have to pay in U$ Dollar$. I just check as each digest comes out, wander over to the WalMart Supercenter & pick them up. Every now & then I have to take a 'Sonic' book to make up 3 because of the lag in books coming out. Trust me, I'm still ahead. Do I still buy Archie books? Sure, but I won't subscribe again.

The 100 is to just get people to buy subscriptions before they "run out." I'm pretty sure they'll extend the special pricing to more than 100 people.


When people were reporting they were getting their subscriptions up to a week early I was tempted to subscribe again. But it is so variable even within a title. i.e. the Jughead digest doesn't always come early and sometimes it's even late!


The whole point of a subscription is to make things easier and cheaper for the consumer. The digests are supposed to come automatically in the mail on time so you don't have to worry about going out to buy them from a store or even online. I much prefer reading them digitally now on the day they're released. The price of wasting my time having to call or email them to get my copy isn't worth the money I'd be saving through a subscription. I still buy some things physically but usually just variant covers or things that aren't available digitally.

100% right. For example I haven't gotten 'Betty & Veronica Friends' digest #250. It's been out at the grocery stores for about 3 - 4 weeks. So - once again - tomorrow I'll have to send them off an email. They give you up to 90 days to report a missing book, but it's a question of yes/no they'll send you a replacement book. My subscription ends at #251 & then I'll go back to buying it (at a discount) in store. On a more positive note, B&V friends #249 was a good digest. Good assortment of artists from past years & good stories.

Okay, already. Quit with the griping. I just thought there might be somebody interested.

When you get right down to it, most of these comics aren't worth buying anyway. Better to just download them off torrents or something.
