  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- If they are indeed reprinting those early B&V Spectaculars from the Archie Giant Series, I'd agree it's a good choice (although it makes me wonder why they'd bypass the Betty & Veronica Summer Fun issues, which would be even more desirable to have). The early Life With Archie issues are a good choice as well, and I'll be buying both of those collections. Archie at Riverdale High, one of the dullest titles, is more of a puzzling choice. I won't be buying that one.
    February 16, 2018, 05:48:41 AM
  • irishmoxie: I own all of B&V Spectacular and most of the later issues of Life with Archie but I would definitely get these collections as they are easier to read without worrying about tearing the pages of fragile comics. Digital would be even better for me.
    February 15, 2018, 04:27:51 PM
  • irishmoxie: I don't see that classic B&V Vol 1 from the 50s up for pre-order on Amazon anymore. So it looks like they've ditched that idea for now.
    February 15, 2018, 04:26:14 PM
  • irishmoxie: I think their idea was to go with the more "edgy" Classic Archie ie fantasy stories from Life with Archie. I haven't read many of the Archie at Riverdale High books but my impression was that they were the "issue" books focusing on a particular issue pertinent to teens like protesting school lunches or something.
    February 15, 2018, 04:19:01 PM
  • irishmoxie: I suspect they will start the Spectacular collection with the Dan Parent stuff because that is more distinguishable. Older B&V Spectacular stuff is very similar to regular B&V.
    February 15, 2018, 04:17:08 PM
  • rusty: Dark Horse could still have the rights, even if they are not using them.  Archie may be thinking that the Life With Archie and Archie at Riverdale High books wi be more marketable than the older comics.  If so, I would agree with that thinking.  Cosmo is an interesting choice for a collection, but maybe they are hoping to capitalize on the new series or have other plans.
    February 15, 2018, 08:28:49 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: They also have "Cosmo: The Complete Merry Martian" up for pre-order!  How many of these things are in the works? This could be cool, but as DeCarlo Rules says, it's some kind of weird titles they're starting with.
    February 15, 2018, 07:12:42 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: At least these don't say they'll be black and white!  It says they're  "presented in the new higher-end format of Archie Comics Presents".  That sounds promising if they execute it well, and, you know, actually produce and release the books.
    February 15, 2018, 07:11:06 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm not really sure if the B&V Spectacular collection goes back to include the individual B&V Spec issues from the Archie Giant Series, or starts with #1 of the 1990s series, either.

Makeout Locations in the Comics?
« on: September 29, 2017, 03:01:52 PM »
Hi everone,
I'm writing a Riverdale fanfiction and am looking for some iconic locations for characters to sneak off to and make out. Whether the old comics or the current generation I don't mind. I'd love to know if there are there any?
Thanks. :)

Very few, actually. Archie Comics characters rarely attempt to "make out". They kiss (with great enthusiasm, I might add) accompanied by orbiting hearts around their heads, or heart-shaped irises in their eyes. A particularly enthusiastic kiss might be accompanied by a sound effect like *SMERP!!* Most of these kisses take place spontaneously, rather than surreptitiously and sneakily, or in some private secluded spot. The most common semi-private place that an extended kissing session might take place is on the couch in the family living room, after the parents have gone to bed or are out for the evening (it helps that most of the characters have no siblings living at home with them).

Thank you for the information. Too bad here are no locations but I can just make up my own.😎

...You know, this reminds me of a story from some years ago, IIRC in Betty and Veronica Spectacular...that showed the Coopers leaving either Archie and Betty alone in the house or alone as they went to bed - But the story showed the gang immediately showing up at the Coopers' door, rather indicating that ACP's theory was that the Coopers (or Andrews) trust thir children, but in practice being really alone in the house never happens for very long! ???
  As for Veronics, it appears that the Lodges have live-in servants on-site at all times...But has that ever been absolutely spelled out :o ?

They do get vacations and days off, since that's an occasional plot device in stories. But I think you can take it as given that there's always a domenstic staff at the Lodge Mansion. There was a story I read just recently where Mr. & Mrs. Lodge took an overseas trip with Veronica, and Veronica asked Betty to come over to the mansion and pet-sit her little dog, since she couldn't bear to leave it at a kennel. At first Betty is excited thinking it's going to be like a vacation for her being waited on hand and foot by the Lodge household servants, but she quickly tires of it after they're constantly asking her if she wants or needs this or that, and by the time the Lodges return home, she can't wait to get back to her normal life at the Coopers' house. Then there was another story where she was house-sitting the mansion for some reason, and she felt sorry for the household staff because they just seemed so subservient, so servile, and she winds up thanking them for every little thing they do for her, and eventually she feels sorry for them since it seems like they're constantly working so hard to please, and she winds up giving them all a few days off. When the service staff come back just before the Lodges return and Betty has to go home, they throw a little farewell thank-you party for Betty because they aren't used to being treated so nicely!

Passion Point. It's a makeout location up on a small hill or something, I think. Jughead was once forced by B&V to take a girl up there on a date; the girl logically believed they were there for some intimate time, and when Jughead refused to pucker up, she chased him all around the place.

Wasn't "Passion Point" also a makeout spot on HAPPY DAYS? I admit my memory of the show is a little fuzzy after a few decades, but it immediately seemed to ring a bell. I don't recall ever seeing it in an Archie story, so I guess my memory was from the show.

I think that was Inspiration Point.

You might be right about that. Googling "Inspiration Point" reveals a number of actual so-named places from Santa Barbara, CA to Yosemite National Park, including at least one "Inspiration Point Christian Camp & Retreat Center", which made me chuckle at the thought of Richie Cunningham parking there with a date.

Passion Point must have been a short-lived fling in Archie Comics for me to have missed it.
