Reboot of Archie Comics Timeline

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?

carrotz


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.

gillibean

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

Shuester

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?

DeCarlo Rules

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.

SAGG

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.

In Jughead #2 Chip refers to the Archie series.

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


BettyReggie

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.

60sBettyandReggie

^ "cute" and "Erica Henderson art" in the same sentence?? ???

Alexandra Cabot



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.
