  • DeCarlo Rules: Presumably with an ongoing B&V series, they'd want to keep it nominally in continuity with the ongoing ARCHIE title.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Oh, I hadn't noticed that the story is "Senior Year", so that explains it. It's a one-off story arc, just like "Freshman Year". They're not going to keep them as seniors permanently, or have them graduate and go on to college in an ongoing series.

But even still, Archie plays it off. The boy gets off too easily WAY too much... ::)

Harper Lodge turned him down for Reggie.

Yeah, and poor, poor Archie still has a gazillion girls who are either after him, or that he's after. The one story I liked where Archie actually and REALLY was shot down was the one recent story where two New Kid (I don't recall who they were, please help me) girls conspired to get just about every girl in Riverdale to really give Archie H-E- double hockey sticks when he asked them out for dates to finish out his "list" because he ignored Betty being available for a date near the end of summer. Turns out that after he seemingly was beaten down, Betty wanted to go out with some other guy, and was dating other guys as well to finish out HER list! All of that was for nothing! No one really learned anything, much less Archie! Betty was no better! Why in the WORLD do any of The Triangle want to have boy/girlfriends if they want to Play the Field, too?

Archie #658 “Dating Drama” — Chloe Mancuso & Bobbi (both on the student paper w/Betty) were the ringleaders

That's what I love about Dan Parent Archie stories. He loves to take him down a peg, and make him the butt of the joke. In this case puncturing Archie's rep as a player.

The difference between Archie and Betty here is that Archie is really acting like an a-hole. He's got the rest of the summer to make a "quota" for dating, trying to top himself by dating as many girls as he can. He puts Betty on the shelf as usual. She's the always-reliable backup, and he figures she'll be at his beck and call when summer ends and they get back to school. The joke's on him, as Betty figures she's not going to wait on him to ask her out, but date some different guys before going back to school. It's not like she's trying to set some kind of record for the most dates. That's just total jerk behavior on Archie's part, and Betty's friends call him on it.

This goes back to my theory about Betty seeing different guys primarily because she doesn't want to be depicted as a pining Archie-only girl, unlike her Crazy Betty days. If Archie stunningly suddenly decided to ask Betty to go steady, she'd drop every other guy in a New York Second...

I just don't see the craze about Archie(especially the way he is drawn in the early books). Definitely Reggie is more physically attractive and certainly not as awkward as Archie. Hell if Jughead wasn't so turned off by girls he has more personality in he left big toe than Archie. Then there are the likes of Chuck and Moose who are definitely more physically developed then Archie and Dilton who is definitely more intellectually developed than Archie. I just don't get why all these girls fall for Archie who he in turn pretty much treats them like crap in the end anyway.
