  • 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.
    October 20, 2017, 05:17:44 PM
  • 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".
    October 20, 2017, 11:42:14 AM
  • 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.
    October 20, 2017, 07:43:40 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Or a short black actress with punky hair.  ;D
    October 19, 2017, 12:21:11 PM
  • JonInIowaCity: Looks like each episode of season 2 will end with a murder.
    October 18, 2017, 09:55:30 PM
  • BettyReggie: Midge looked like she was wearing wig. Couldn't they get a actress with short spunky black hair?

    October 17, 2017, 09:45:36 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Wow, really? Ms. Grundy was a murder victim? That's a pretty radical departure... I mean if there's an actual corpse...  :o

I'm hoping to pick up the Boom Comics one eventually. I probably won't go on FCBD though.

You can get it from www.midtowncomics.com  but I didn't see it on the web site yet. The crowds at that Forbidden Planet would be too much for me to handle because I will be in my power chair so I'll skip it.

I will be going to my local comic book shop on saturday when the store opens. I want to make sure Archie #1 is still in stock. I might buy some myself too they had some older issues last year for $3

Veronica Fish drew a 1 page Betty Cooper 'story' for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund free comic.  It really is just encouraging people to visit libraries, but it does feature an Archie character.  The CBLDF comic last year had Kevin Keller in it if I am remembering correctly.

My free comics arrived last week from my comic shop, though I still plan to visit a few shops to see what sales they have.  I've spent quite a bit at a couple of shops the last two years.

A free copy of ARCHIE #1 doesn't interest me any more than it did last year at $3.99. Nor do any of the prior SONIC FCBD giveways (unless they are flipbooks with MEGA MAN on the opposite side).

However, now FCBD (and Jonathan's review on last Saturday's Riverdale Podcast) is making me think of ordering some of those older classic Archie FCBD giveaways that I missed (and the smaller, Halloween ComicFest ones, too).

Here's a list of those Archie FCBD comics (I haven't included any of the SONIC giveaways). There was no classic Archie giveaway for FCBD 2012 or 2015.

FCBD 2003    ARCHIE #1    "The Kid Who Wrecked Riverdale!"
FCBD 2004    ARCHIE #2    "I Was a Teenage Comic Book Character!"
FCBD 2005    BETTY & VERONICA #1    "Model Citizen" (guest-starring Katy Keene)
FCBD 2006    ARCHIE's 65th Anniversary Bash! #1   
FCBD 2007    Little ARCHIE #1    "Legend of the Lost Lagoon"
FCBD 2008    JUGHEAD #1    "Night at the Entertainment Museum"
FCBD 2009    ARCHIE presents The Mighty Archie Art Players #1   
FCBD 2010    ARCHIE'S Summer Splash! #1   
FCBD 2011    PEP COMICS #0 - featuring Betty & Veronica    "You've Been Clubbed!"
FCBD 2012    MEGA MAN: Origin of a Hero   
FCBD 2013    World of ARCHIE Digest #1   
FCBD 2014    ARCHIE Digest #1   
FCBD 2015    DARK CIRCLE COMICS #1

I have the Halloween themed one which has a pretty cute story. I've been wanting to get the Sabrina/Sonic one which I believe was their 1st FCBD but it's always expensive on eBay.

I haven't decided if I'm going to participate in FCBD this year since I already have Archie #1 and still have lots of other Archie comics I haven't read yet.

I went. I got Archie #1, Help the CBLDF Defend Comics, Love and Rockets, and Grumpy Cat (and Pokey!).

I PAID for Archies Jokes #471, Laugh #339, Laugh #328 Archie & Me #103, and Archie's Joke Book #238. This was all together $15 with 20% off. It was the only 5 older issues they had too.

Midtowncomics is going have those comics for free on their website on the 9th. I definitely want the Archie #1 & Love & Rockets. I love Love & Rockets, I have one of the books.
