  • DeCarlo Rules: @TM - "They" is Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Just him. HE's the writer of both AWA and ChAoS. It's HIS story. He only writes an issue when his muse inspires him. Plus he's kinda busy being the showrunner and one of the head writers for RIVERDALE, which ACP probably considers a little more important. And from Sacasa's POV, I know television work must pay a helluvalot better than writing comic books. Especially if they're comic books published by ACP. Could someone else write those horror comics? Sure, if ACP's Chief Creative Officer decided to assign the books to someone else. At that point sales would probably just nosedive anyway, so what's the point? Better to let other writers make up their own horror stories using ACP characters.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Yeah, I saw an article a few days ago about that. Can't they make sure that their initial two horror titles come out before they add two more?

Achenar!  Set up a poll so we can see a ranking.  Allow voters to pick two(or three) from the list.  The cream will rise to the top.

My ranking has changed slightly from the thread in 2012.

1. Jughead
2. Betty
3. Veronica
4. Archie
5. Reggie

Over the past few years I'm finding I enjoy the Veronica character more and more and she's moved past Archie at this point.  As I've read more and more of Dan Parent's take on the character I've begun to view her differently.  She's still spoiled and self-indulgent, but Dan's given her a softer and more sensitive side and I find her more relatable.  I also find the Veronica of the last decade or so to be funnier .  I recently re-read two stories where she tries to start a new fashion fad, one where she's wearing cardboard boxes as a skirt or head covering, and the other where she's wearing a giant cowbell and the other Riverdale girls follow her lead.  I guess I appreciate Dan's sense of humor.

Jughead is still far and away my favorite, and Reggie never seems to have much to say or do when he does appear, so I don't see those two moving up or down on my list anytime soon.

As for the reboot Archie, I'm still trying to accept the new changes we've been presented with.  I don't find any of the five particulary compelling at this point.  Possibly after a few story arcs should the titles stick around for awhile.

Unquestionably. As drawn by Dan DeCarlo or Harry Lucey (to name the two most prominent among others), she always LOOKED attractive, but I think it fell to Dan Parent to give her a certain cuteness that is appealing -- if not precisely innocence, then at least a kind of vulnerability that makes her more endearing, counterpointed by the hijinks of "just Veronica being Veronica". That is as much due to Dan P's sculpting her character subtly as a writer as to the (to be honest, probably editorially-mandated) toning down of her 'Dragon Lady' sex appeal that the older generation of artists leaned heavily on (not that he isn't capable of amping that up when needed, like on certain covers). A true appreciation of Dan Parent's contributions to ACP does not hinge merely on his draftmanship alone, but that individual tone of quirky humor that he injects the stories with.
