DeCarlo Rules: Because it's not like it's the last chance we'll get to see those 5-page stories...

DeCarlo Rules: Hmm... Archie Milestones is back... BUT I already bought all the "Best of Archie" TPBs... So I'm going to have to pass on paying the steep cover price just for one new 5-page story.

DeCarlo Rules: I would have expected them to just release Super Duck as a TP rather than let the already completed issues languish. I kind of liked it.

Archie vs Lodge/Weatherbee - Reggie vs Moose

Mr.Lodge

I love the stories between Archie vs Mr Lodge  / Archie vs Mr Weatherbee. I'm surprised he hasn't put those 2 into an early grave.

Also - Reggie vs Moose

I enjoy it when he really beats the crap out of him.

Reggie knows Midge is dating Moose but he still tries to get his hand down her pants. Is he suicidal, stupid, clueless or his head talks too much?


It doesn't help that Midge sometimes leads him on. Whats her deal? I don't think too much of her because of that.

Archie has always shown great respect for his elders and authority figures.  I think Archie gets a little intimidated by Mr. Lodge because he's a middle class kid who's dating the daughter of one of the richest men in the country. He simply doesn't fit in to their lifestyle. So, Archie gets nervous and tries hard to impress Mr. Lodge which ends up being a disaster causing damage to Mr. Lodge's possessions and to Lodge himself. 
Similar with Mr. Weatherbee. Archie means well and tries to help, but it's almost always a comical disaster. Kind of like hiring the Three Stooges as handymen.
As far as Reggie, it's one word: EGO!
He can't help it. He has to prove he's the better man whether the rival is Moose or Archie. And the best way Reggie knows how is by stealing their girlfriends. The girls are trophies to be won to give Reggie a sense of victory. As for as Midge, she is simply a teenager who doesn't really know what she wants in a relationship. She is thrilled to be dating the Riverdale's star athlete, Moose but she doesn't like feeling like she's his possession. Moose treats her like he owns her and he's a bit of a bully. He'll beat up any guy who even looks her way. He's even socked Jughead a few times simply because Midge was paying attention to him.

DeCarlo Rules

They have rarely made any mention of it in decades, but in the early stories Midge was supposed to be one of THE most attractive girls at Riverdale High, more so than even Betty and Veronica. If you look back to stories of the fifties even into the early sixties, not only Reggie, but Archie too will try to date Midge if either of them thinks they can get away with it and escape the wrath of Big Moose. A big reason that makes Midge even more attractive than she already is physically is the idea that she's the "forbidden fruit".

And the most desirable guy for the ladies at Riverdale High has got to be Jughead. The more he try to avoid girls, the more they chase after him. They see him as having some kind of untapped romantic potential. Even Archie and Reggie are amazed at all the girls who fall for him.

Getting back to Reggie and Midge;
For all the times Reggie tried hooking up with Midge in his teen years and risk getting beat up, he never tries for her in the future married stories. Even after she had broken up with Moose for good. You figure the AMV universe would be the place he would have pursued her since Veronica is off the market. They hardly had any dialogue between them at all. Maybe Reggie had grown up and moved on or, he felt  Midge was too attached to Jughead at this point.
