  • 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!

  • 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".

  • 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.

  • 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?

Oldest Archie item you own
« on: April 02, 2016, 09:32:12 PM »
I'm still relatively new to finding and collecting Archie but so far the oldest thing I've found is Archie 132. It's in bad shape but I still got it. Haven't seen anything older yet.

Surprisingly I've had a hard time finding any old Archie.

The oldest item in my collection is a somewhat beat-up copy of Pep #60 from March, 1947. It was given to me as a gift when I bought some other comics from a user on this forum.

The Oldest Item That I own in my Archie Collection is:

Pep #26!

I do have a few pre-archie (MLJ) Titles and Issues, but if we don't count those, than the above is the oldest.

That's awesome! Do you guys get your stuff online a lot of the time?

I'm always hesitant to because I really love going to stores and going through all the old stuff but I can't believe how difficult it's been to actually find old Archie issues.

The oldest Archie item I've got is a copy of Archie Comics #53 (Nov-Dec 1951) that I found on the old B&N Marketplace a number of years ago. But the oldest Archie-published item I've got is Jolly Jingles #15 (Fall 1944).

When comics started to be described as “collectibles” in the mid-1970s Archie comics weren’t thought of in the same light — they were considered throwaway fluff for kids, so the vast majority were just thrown away … even (especially) if they were kept they were well used, often drawn in or worse, and stored in poor conditions … so they are exceedingly rare today (though still not in demand so the prices are usually comparatively trivial if you can find them at all — and people don’t bother selling them since they don’t go for much …
 
The oldest physical copies I have are actually “Archie Adventure” imprints from the early ‘60s (the Fly & the Jaguar) …

The oldest item I own is Archie #3. I found it a bookstore/café for about $4. I wish I can find older stuff but when I saw that it was #3 I snatched it while it was available  :)

Yeah I sort of figured that Archie isn't the most collectible but it's still a surprise. I went to a local small comic store here and actually found a decent amount of stuff.

I told him any Archie he finds to let me know because I've had a really hard time with it.

Do you live on the east coast? Where I live (Missouri) there is virtually no Archie to be had besides the reboot.

I live in Colorado actually. So yeah it's been tough to come by here. I've found a decent amount of 70's-80's
Life with Archie, Betty and Veronica, and little Archie.

I've only found 2 issues of just the normal Archie series though.

My Girlfriend has been trying to find any old Sabrina the Teenage Witch and that has been ever harder. We have found 3 issues of that.

Most anything from the ‘90s is hard too — as bad as from the ‘60s at least — they tried to diversify and “re-invent” a lot of stuff then and people either loved it & kept it, or more often hated it and trashed any they had bought (a lot was pretty weird at the time)

I found it pretty easy to find '90s Archies.  Of course, that might be because I bought all of them in the '90s when they came out...   ::)

The oldest Archie comic I have is not that old, it's from the 80's. An Archie Annual Digest.

You know those Vintage Buttons the Archie Comics site has for sale for just .99 cents per button, how vintage do you think they really are for that little of a price tag?
