Refresh History
  • 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

  • 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".

  • 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.

Reboot of Archie Comics Timeline
« on: February 20, 2017, 11:38:08 PM »
With the reboot of the Archie, Jughead, Reggie and Me, Betty and Veronica, and Josie & the Pussycats, is it all one big timeline or is each series on its own timeline and there is no cross over between each issues series?

They each have their own timeline. Things happen in each book that can't be happening in the other books, like Jughead fighting his new principal and Pops losing his shop. Some people think they have the same timeline just because they are all reboots, but they don't. I have not seen any signs of crossing over between them.

Yeah, they're all separate timelines. Gets kinda confusing.

Is Veronica a new student in all of them? I haven't been able to read the newest comics in quite a while, so I don't really know what's happening. But she was definitely new to Riverdale in the "Archie" timeline... is that the case for all?

In Adam Hughes' B&V, he jumps right into a Betty VERSUS Veronica story, which is implying we should be shocked at this as if they have a long-established history as BFFs. Sure doesn't seem like the same characters who are appearing in ARCHIE.

Have there been any references of stories from one book in another in the new Archie series? Just wondering....  ???

In Adam Hughes' B&V #2, I believe it was (going on memory here because I don't actually own the comic) there was a subtle reference to Chip Zdarksy's first story arc in JUGHEAD. In fact, so subtle that most readers probably didn't catch it, and subtle enough that there's an ambiguity there about whether the reference represents 'continuity' per se, or some kind of in-joke.

Having said that, I am now pausing to reflect on the recent announcement that the current JUGHEAD writer, Ryan North, is slated to be replaced by the team of Mark Waid and Ian Flynn. I wonder if this isn't a response both to lagging sales on JUGHEAD, and confusion among readers as to whether the New Riverdale titles are all part of some sort of Archie Universe. It occurs to me that Adam Hughes' BETTY AND VERONICA arc is slated only to run through the 3rd issue, and I wonder if the next announcement from ACP might not be that B&V will be co-written by Mark Waid and another (cheap to hire) writer following Hughes' departure in issue #3. ACP may have decided that the New Riverdale titles as a group could benefit from being continuity-wrangled by Waid, hoping that some of ARCHIE's readers might get onboard with the other New Riverdale titles if they were perceived as being all in-continuity.

You can tell when an artist is ugly when she makes her female characters look like neanderthals to compensate.

I liked Erica Henderson's Betty. She is cute. Even her Jughead is cute. I think Derek Charm's Jughead is handsome. I love the way he draws Jughead. I actually got Jughead Volume #2 today. I can't wait to read it.

Yeah, Erica Henderson has two problems:

1.  She draws like a chimp with brain damage.  The fact she even has a career is a joke in and of itself.  Some people went to the Joe Kubert School to learn how to draw comic books.  She went to the Stevie Wonder School of Comic Book Art.

2.  She has low self esteem due to being a fat ugly cow, but instead of dealing with it like normal people do, she forces it on other people with her art and labels her displaced anxieties as "feminism" (short version: she comes from Tumblr).  This ignores the fact that people read fantasy cartoon books to look at good looking drawings of people, not to look at people that look like Erica Henderson.
