  • 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?

Archie and Varsity Jackets
« on: April 07, 2017, 03:38:54 PM »
Richie Cunningham often wore a varsity jacket on Happy Days.  However, I do not think Archie ever wore a varsity jacket in the 1950s, although they certainly existed at that time.  When was the first time Archie wore a varsity jacket.  I am thinking it is not until at least the 1970s, maybe even the 1980s.

They used to be "Varsity Sweaters.

Jackets came later.

Archie was still wearing the sweater with the R on it well into the 1980s.  I did find what looks like it may be a letter jacket on the cover of Archie at Riverdale High #70 from 1980.  It's got the R on it at least.  There may very well have been earlier appearances, but I just did a cursory glance at the covers of a few titles.

He's had it (jacket or sweater, doesn't matter) sometime in the 2000s, or even the 2010s, hasn't he?  I could have sworn, somewhere. Of course it's not consistent or anything, it's just a whenever-type thing, right?

The Varsity sweater has been a mainstay on covers since Archie #1.  I can't think of many instances of his wearing a Varsity jacket.  Glad Rusty found one example.

Here's another example from Archie Giant Series #601 - October 1989

Wasn't that sweater/vest thing he wore in the 50s considered a varsity sweater?

  I was only referring to varsity jackets.  I knew about the varsity sweater.
