  • 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!

  • BettyReggie: Midtown Comics has the new January 2018 Comics. I preordered mine.

  • 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.

Only filling in on JUGHEAD for 2 issues, or is he the new regular artist on the book?
Either way, it's a step in the right direction which makes me ask why they didn't just hire him in the first place.

He draws cute art. I'm gonna start picking up Jughead again.

And to answer your question why he wasn't hired in the first place: nepotism.

I think Erica is working on a book so she probably will be back.

Erica Henderson's related to one of the editors at Archie?

That's what I'm asking. irishmoxie says it's nepotism, and that's when you hire (or promote) your relatives. That kind of thing sort of goes without saying when the publishing company is family owned and passed down (through several generations of Goldwaters and Silberkleits), but I'm asking who is Erica Henderson related to that she got hired because of nepotism?

Her dad worked for Archie for a bit but I'm sure he had connections into the comic world that helped her get where she is today. It certainly isn't her art which ranges from ugly to even worse inconsistent as people on here have pointed out.

Her dad wrote only a handful of stories for Archie, and that was back in the early 1990s. He also died a year or two back, before Erica really had any breaks in the industry. I'm sure he gave her some tips on how to submit work to publishers, but C. J. Henderson was never actually a huge name as a writer, either of prose or of comics -- he was kind of working the low end of both fields, although he managed to get a fair number of books published over a couple of decades or so, but it's not like we're talking about Stephen King or (for Archie Comics) George Gladir or something. His last comic work was for Moonstone Books, about as low on the comic publishing scale as you can get while still being distributed by Diamond.

You and I may not like her work (and I certainly don't find her style appropriate for JUGHEAD), but you have to acknowledge that someone does. She was nominated twice for the 2016 Eisner awards -- once for best new series (for The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl) and once for best penciller/inker.  Ergo, the work she's getting is on her own merit.
