  • 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!

  • 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
    October 20, 2017, 12:36:49 PM
  • 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".

  • Vegan Jughead: Oh, wow, that sucks.
    October 20, 2017, 09:21:57 AM
  • 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.

Digital Exclusives
« on: June 18, 2016, 06:30:01 PM »
I had this topic on the old forum, but in case people were still interested, here it is again. Comics.org won't let me list digital comics so I'll put it on here instead.

Here is one I tabulated recently. The collections I choose to put up on here are in no particular order. Just whatever ones I've read/are interested in. Sorry for the formatting. This looked better on my word doc. If you want a synopsis of the stories, visit comics.org. If there was no synopsis on that site, I included it here.

As we were discussing the indexing of stories by theme in another thread, it occurs to me that they could never have foreseen the need to sort stories quite this specifically in the pre-digital era. While stories from the DE collections "Lifeguards on Duty" and "Just Keep Swimming" could easily have found their way into a "Summer Fun" reprint collection issue, they would never have considered putting out something like a reprint comic composed of all Thanksgiving stories. Some of those stories might easily be included in digest issues shipping in late October or early November, but the thought of filling an entire digest issue with them would not even be seriously considered. It's only the constant need to generate new DE thematic collections (to differentiate them from a standard digest assortment of stories) that leads to a need for indexing the plot content of the stories in the first place.

A lot of these are Valentine's Day themed stories. The ones that aren't are about dating.

Pep Digital #38 Archie’s Sweet Hearts 154 pg.

The Art of the Heart By a Not-So-Stupid Cupid (Betty and Veronica) 5 pg. from ??? I think this is Bob Bolling or maybe Holly G.
Narrated by a Cupid like character who discusses his adventures with shooting arrows at the Riverdale gang.

Queen of Hearts (Betty’s Diary) 5 pg. from Betty’s Diary #24.
Love and More Love (Archie) 5 pg. from Archie #255. *not a Valentine’s Day story*

Special Delivery part 1, The Chocolate Drop part 2 (Betty and Veronica) 12 pg. from Betty and Veronica #62.

Valentine Mix Up (Moose) 6 pg. from Archie’s Pals ‘n’ Gals DD #128. Probably a Fernando Ruiz story based on the strong jaw lines.

Date Night Plight! (Jughead) 6 pg. from ?? Jughead’s parents go out on a date. *not a Valentine’s Day story* Looks like DeCarlo or Schulz

The Heart of the Matter (Little Archie) 7 pg. from Little Archie Giant Comics #18.

Arrow Talk (Archie) 6 pg. Lead story from Archie DD #240. So I’m thinking they did new lead stories in digests at least back to 2008.

Love Notions Part 1 and 2 (Betty and Veronica) 11 pg. from Betty and Veronica Spectacular #7. *Not a Valentine’s Day story*

Sweets to the Sweet (Jughead) 5 pg. from Jughead #179 (2nd series)

Chuck draws a portrait of Nancy for Valentine’s Day and mixes it up with one he drew of a monster.

A Second Valentine’s Day (Jughead) 6 pg. from ?? Fernando Ruiz story.
Jughead writes an article about a Valentine’s Day for guys to receive candy from girls. A chocolate company gets ahold of the article and decides to advertise it as a real holiday.

Romance Is In the Air (Betty and Veronica) 6 pg. from ?? Slate/Kennedy story. *not a Valentine’s Day story*
While out shopping, Veronica keeps getting hit on by random guys. Betty is jealous. References the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes proposal.

The Language of Love (Betty) 5 pg. from ?? Reprinted in B&V Friends DD #224.

Small Is Big (Archie) 6 pg. from Archie #554.

A Cupid Question Part 1 and 2 (Little Sabrina) 11 pg. from Sabrina # ??

Love At First Sight (Betty’s Diary) 5 pg. from Betty’s Diary # ??
Betty gets a crush on a guy at school and imagines what her grown up life would be like with him. *Not a Valentine’s Day story*

Love Is Nasty Part 1, 2, and 3 (Betty & Veronica & Cheryl Blossom) 20 pg. Part 1 is the lead story from Betty and Veronica Digest #180. Part 2 and 3 from ?? probably Betty and Veronica Digest #181. Part 3 is titled “How’s Tricks?” (Cheryl & Reggie). Part 2 is a Valentine’s Day story. Cheryl and Reggie start dating and Cheryl is crowned queen of the Valentine’s Day parade. In Part 3, Cheryl and Reggie continue dating and team up to pull pranks on everybody.
