Tuxedo Mark: I think we're meant to assume Pepper (like all of the rarely-used characters) have been in Riverdale this whole time (see, for example, Civil Chore, where she cameoed), but they don't warrant appearances.

Tuxedo Mark: And Josie and Pepper only just now go shopping for new swimsuits.

Tuxedo Mark: Anyone feel all of today's new stories were meant to be published earlier? Mirror Reggie was trying to apologize to Ronnie for something that happened in October. Summer "just started" when Betty and Veronica watch the lifeguard tryouts.

Tuxedo Mark: There was also the Josie reboot comics, so it might have been given there.

Tuxedo Mark: Smith is her last name on Katy Keene. Not sure if the show established that last name or not.

DeCarlo Rules: And no mention of where Pepper has been all this time, so it's hard to say when the story is taking place -- it's just Pepper, Josie and Melody.

DeCarlo Rules: Pepper returns in her own story by Tom DeFalco and Bill Galvan in BETAND VERONICA JUMBO COMICS #306 -- and finally gets a last name, Smith. But isn't that Valerie's last name, too? Valerie's not in the story, but neither is Albert or Sock.

FCBD 2022 The Best ARCHIE Comic Ever! #0

Nah... not so much!  ???

This consists of a 4-page preview (or prequel?) to a Pureheart the Powerful story scheduled to appear in the upcoming one-shot The Best ARCHIE Comic Ever! #1 (see cover below), plus a short story reprinted from a recently published one-shot, ARCHIE Love and Heartbreak Special #1, plus another story which may be either a reprint of a recent one-shot or a preview of an upcoming one-shot (I'm not sure).

None of the stories in this FCBD issue are written & drawn in the "classic Archie" style.

It is weird that Archie is now in the position of publishing a FCBD issue (itself a one-shot) that is a part-reprint of an already-published one-shot, and part-preview of another upcoming one-shot of the same title. All things considered, I think I'd have preferred a FCBD one-shot that was entirely assembled from classic-style Archie reprints.


In case you're wondering, the above-pictured The Best ARCHIE Comic Ever! #1 consists of the aforementioned Pureheart story, a B&V Spy Girlz story, and a Jughead the Barbarian story (none of them in the classic style).

With very few one-shots coming out these days as it is, why is Archie Comics doing random AU stories? And why are they hyping it? I'd rather have canonical stories set in Riverdale.
