  • DeCarlo Rules: That's pretty much the whole point of having an internet -- it connects you to entertainment, information, and people who would otherwise be too far away from you physically, or would involve much greater effort on your part to connect with. And although there are some advantages for comic book collectors inherent in the direct-market dedicated comic book shop system, the major BIG (obvious) DISadvantage is that only a few thousand of those shops exist, compared to the huge number of retailers who used to carry comic books along with their other products back in the days of the "newsstand distribution system".

  • DeCarlo Rules: @Archiecomicxfan215 - FCBD comic books may be free to you, but the retailer has to PAY for those comic books he gives away for free. The publishers of the FCBD comics make no profit off them, and they're distributed to retailers by Diamond Comics for free, but they have to charge comic shop owners money for them, because paper and printing costs money. Your local comic shop owner loses a small amount of money with every FCBD comic book he gives away. Of course the whole idea behind FCBD is that sampling those free comic books will create interest in customers actually BUYing the retail versions of those FCBD comic books later on.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Don't forget to pick up the FCBD issue of DIE KITTY DIE: I Love You to Death! by Dan & Fernando from Chapterhouse Comics! Oh, and I guess if you care about that RIVERDALE thing, you could pick up the FCBD issue where Pop Tate eavesdrops on all the conversations of his teenage customers (makes him sound a little creepy, if you ask me...) Doesn't an adult business proprietor have more important things to worry about???

I love the story where Reggie saved Betty from almost getting hit by a truck. And soon after they had feelings for each other. It was called One Brief Moment.

There's a good one in WORLD OF ARCHIE ANNUAL #62 - a story called "Secret Date" where Archie sees someone at Pop's sitting in a booth holding up a magazine, H.O. Quarterly, and he can't believe there's someone else into scale model railroading like he is. As he approaches to make conversation, who should be behind that magazine when it's lowered but Ethel Muggs. Archie is surprised, but they start talking about model railroading, and Ethel mentions she's going to the big Train Expo in in Midvale tomorrow. Before he realizes it, Archie's invited himself along with her.  On his way to meet Ethel the next day, he thinks "Well, this is a little weird, me going somewhere with Ethel! Well, it's not like it's a date or anything, we're just going as friends!" Then he's surprised when he rings her doorbell and Ethel answers the door, dressed to the nines, new hairstyle, makeup... the whole kaboodle. Not only does he wind up having a great time with Ethel at the Train Expo, but afterwards they spend the entire evening together, dining at a Mexican restaurant, going to a comedy club and then hitting the dance floor later on. Archie can't help but compare Ethel to Betty & Veronica, and finds his time spent with Ethel to be a lot more relaxing and fun by comparison. At the end of the story, he kisses her goodnight, but then invites her to go to a classic car show the next week. The story is credited as having been written by John Wilcox, a writer with whom I'm completely unfamiliar - this is the first story I can remember seeing credited to him.

I don't recall the specifics of the story any longer and I haven't run across it in a few years, but the gist is Betty got let down by Archie while attending a dance and in the final panel Jughead says to Betty "If there should ever come a time I'd willingly kiss a girl it'd be you" (or close to that).  It makes my heart go pitter-pat just recalling it.

I'm not sure if I'm remembering the same story or just another one where he said something similar. The situation was that Jughead was comforting Betty in one of the many cases of her being on the receiving end of Archie's typical emotional neglect, and he reveals how much he appreciates her in a rare candid moment for him. Anyway, the context of whatever the exact words were amounted to Jughead telling Betty that if he were ever going to give up avoiding girls, she'd be the one he'd do it for. Which, by Jughead standards, is like writing her a romantic love sonnet. I could swear I've seen a basically similar scenario in two or three different stories, along with a number of lesser passing admissions along the lines of "You know, Betty, for a girl, you're okay."

"Home Is Where My Heat Is", which happens to be in my gallery. It's about Ms. Grundy's apartment home being burned in a fire, and The Gang helps her out...

The story wherein a lost dog knocks on Andrews home, when Archie opens the door the dog lets itself in much to the surprise of Archie's parents which scared the poor dog. Archie's mother suggested to look for the dog's owner and hinted that Archie may get a reward for doing so. Archie daydreams of his possible rewards like a date with the dog's owner or perhaps material gains. When they reach the dog's owner's home, it turns out that the owner is a lonely old lady who can't afford to give any reward but a simple thank you. Archie concluded that it was the best reward he had received.
