  • 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!

  • 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".

  • 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.

Josie & the Pussycats reboot
« on: June 08, 2016, 06:42:21 PM »
A new Josie & the Pussycats comic series, featuring the exploits of Riverdale’s most popular all-girl rock band, will be out in September.

According to Archie Comics, the new series will feature Josie uniting the band to take their big shot at musical stardom, only to contend with the machinations of Alexandra Cabot, the ever-Machiavellian daughter of the Pussycats’ manager.

Marguerite Bennett and Cameron DeOrdio will write the series, with art by Audrey Mok. Mok also draws the cover of the first issue...

This looks amazing; if the writing is good, I think it will sell big time!

The Veronica Fish variant is really cool.  The attention to detail with the bands is great.  Can't believe there's a Shonen Knife poster on their wall.  Someone knows their girl bands!

I like Veronica Fish's cover is best out of the 3. I'm not huge fan of Josie & The Pussycats. But I will get the #1. I'm more interested in Archie & Jughead & Betty & Veronica reboots.

C-can we talk about how beautifully Mok draws them? It does not help my unnatural crush on Melody lol

Also I hope they don't make Alexandra into a cartoonish villain and nothing else. (Like no character development.)

I can't wait to see how Alan & Alexander will look. It would be cool if somehow they put Pepper in the story. She should be fighting with Melody & Josie. They should befriend her. And she will want to get revenge on them . And maybe get friendly with Alexandra. Maybe they could be a couple.

Well, I guess we are seeing them spend some of that new finance money. Not familiar with any of these creators' work, but Audrey Mok's art looks okay.

Also spotted: album covers for Talking Heads (True Stories), Ramones, Run DMC, The Archies, a poster for Chuck Berry and Lloyd Price, and a Playbill for Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

They look similar to me. And those are the covers I don't like.

Right. 50s rock n roll is probably my favorite next to The Beach Boys.  The Chuck Berry and Lloyd Price poster that looks just like a 50s concert flyer is amazing.  Whoever came up with that idea is inspired.  Nice that they're celebrating two folks who are still with us too!  Chuck will be 90 this year and Lloyd is 83. 


I wish they had put a better Talking Heads album on there.  Fear of Music or Remain In Light maybe, but True Stories I guess was easy to do because the band's name is so big it would stand out.

Alex and Alexandra's dad is the manager now? Where does that leave Alex?

All his covers look the same to me. He always draws those silhouette covers because they take less effort.
