It's hilarious! It talks about the "lust-filled" Archie comics of the 70's...  :2funny:

Wow, why is everything so itty-bitty? I have to wonder what these people are constructing these web sites on. It's just a pain to have to hit Ctrl+ multiple times, but I wonder what the creator was viewing the site on?

My favorite was this line. New theory on "What's the deal with Jughead?":
QuoteOf all the guys associated with Archie, Jughead was the most reserved in his horniness.  Perhaps it was the weed that killed his sex drive.  I don't know.  But he still had his moments.


This guy had the right idea, though. The whole site focuses on an aspect of Archie Comics of the past that was really great, that I miss in the more toned-down stories of ACP's "modern era" (1987-2015). They were clearly tuned-in to one of (if not the) primary appeals of Dan DeCarlo's work, its innocent sexiness, and not afraid to exploit that.

QuoteCripes! These guys are literally standing by this woman sweating and panting.  I wonder what we'd see if we could zoom out to get the whole picture.  Synchronized public masturbation is wrong, folks. Keep our beaches clean.

My favorite line was this one:
"Even the gay population at Riverdale can't help but whistle at a miniskirt.  Truly, this is a land where gawking and pawing at females is not only accepted, but a way of life."
The writer comically assumed that just because the dudes were dressed the way they were, they were gay!  :2funny:


Quick question, DR: Why did you say the pictures were so small?  ???  They're quite large on my screen....

When I first looked at the link on my computer at home, the pictures looked normal-sized (that is to say, they looked like they were displayed on my screen at the pixel height and width at which they'd been scanned), BUT the text was displayed in really tiny fonts, and the whole page had a huge amount of gray space on either side of the page. I just now looked at it again, on a different computer, and the fonts are displayed in a nice readable size (if not a little larger than necessary), BUT the images as displayed are also blown up to the same relative proportions (you can tell they're larger than the original image size as scanned, because you can see dithering, or fuzziness in the colors).

Or maybe I'm mis-remembering and I did originally look at the page on this computer and the fonts displayed as tiny (and I subsequently used Ctrl++ to enlarge the whole page as displayed, but have since forgotten this, although my computer would remember this so I wouldn't need to use the Ctrl+ again).

AND I don't know what kind of screen display you're viewing the page on. It might look perfectly normal, say, on a 9"-diagonal tablet, while I'm looking at the site on a 11.75"x18" monitor with a default display resolution of 1050x1680.

Normally the hypertext (HTML) that the creator used to create the page should dictate some things about how the page displays, scaling both the fonts and images according to both the screen dimensions and pixel resolution native to the computer on which it's being viewed. For example, you sometimes find older web pages created a long time ago before larger monitors and higher screen display resolutions became common, that don't account for these things in the HTML code used to create the page, when scaling the images and fonts, or whether the text is justified or centered, or aligned to right or left.

Not all simple questions are as simple as they might at first appear!  :)

That's one of the earliest stories featuring Frankie Valdez, isn't it?

I read that story a few weeks ago. Name of the story is Sacrifice Play (Archie's Girls Betty and Veronica 214)
It's not Frankie Valdez, it's some other guy Betty was going out with.

;D ...well, actually Veronica didn't like the guy Betty was going out with. Her sixth sense was telling her there was something fishy about him. And she was right. He was just using Betty to get to Ronnie because of her money (Ronnie took the guy away from Betty so he wouldn't continue lying to her and using her. Ronnie then gave the guy the boot (literally!).
