  • DeCarlo Rules: Thanks, VJ. I did not know of Penny Peabody. If they're going to reprint Little Archie, I wish they'd reprint the longer, better (pre-1965) ones by Bolling. It seems like the longer stories allowed Bolling to create something more interesting out of LA, but there seems like some taboo against reprinting them in the digests.

  • BettyReggie: I plan to watch Riverdale Espoide #1 & # 2 on The CW. Website later.
    October 23, 2017, 06:42:39 PM
  • Vegan Jughead: Penny Peabody was the girlfriend of Fangs Fogarty, the bully in the Little Archie comics.  I know you don't love those and even if you did read a lot of them, she's barely in them.  Really obscure.  Real Ms Grundy is dead I think.  This one stole her identity if I remember correctly.
    October 23, 2017, 12:23:28 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: ...and if Ms. Grundy wasn't Ms. Grundy, then who was she, and where is the real Ms. Grundy?

  • Vegan Jughead: Hey but who needs Moose and Midge when you can have such prominent characters as Penny Peabody and Toni Topaz on the show?
    October 22, 2017, 10:30:03 AM
  • 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.
    October 21, 2017, 08:31:51 AM
  • 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.
    October 21, 2017, 07:12:39 AM
  • 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!

  • BettyReggie: Midtown Comics has the new January 2018 Comics. I preordered mine.
    October 20, 2017, 05:17:44 PM
  • 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".
    October 20, 2017, 11:42:14 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: Oh, wow, that sucks.
    October 20, 2017, 09:21:57 AM
  • 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.

Riverdale Podcast - Top 5!
« on: April 24, 2016, 08:48:51 AM »
On this week's episode, I'll be running down my top 5 favorite characters outside of the core five. With the exception of Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica, and Reggie, who are your favorite characters? I'd love to see your lists and share them on the show!


Thanks!

I'm not sure if you were thinking of this in terms of characters that would be considered 'secondary' or 'supporting' characters (like Pop Tate, Mr. Lodge, or Cheryl Blossom) ONLY in those titles that are Archie-centric...


Because my favorites are really the characters from the other series within the Archieverse.


1. Sabrina
2&3. (tie) Melody & Pepper
4&5. (tie) Alex & Alexandra


But if you were really thinking of the ARCHIE secondary/supporting players, I guess I could make a different list.

Any characters outside of those five. I was thinking supporting characters as well as other titles, Josie, That Wilkin Boy, Suzie, etc. Thanks for the clarification!

In no particular order:
  • Trula Twyst — always fun to see her match wits with Jughead  ;D
  • Dilton Doiley — also fun for the weirdness and strange inventions that make the gang’s life interesting  ::)
  • Cheryl Blossom — obvious, but irresistible …  :)
  • 'Jellybean' Jones — for a change of pace …
  • Wendy Weatherbee — for the dynamic it adds …
Of course there’s Sabrina, the Pussycats (and Alexandra), Moose & Midge, Ethel … there’s another worthy 5 right there …

The Riverdale Podcast is a podcast (okay, I'm just assuming you know what that is) where Jonathan Merrifield talks about Archie Comics (and occasionally related things). "Sometimes it's a new Archie comic book, sometimes it's an old Archie comic book", as he says, along with news and new releases from the world of Archie Comics.


I think your list is very interesting. I haven't read all those New Riverdale issues, so I mainly just know the old versions of those characters. I thought it was interesting to see January McAndrews as your 3rd favorite (apart from the main five, I guess) because she's a relatively minor character in the older comics (but I like her).

Yep, I know what a Podcast is. I looked at the link and it looks really cool. I will take a listen later today. I really like January McAndrews because she can time travel which I think is really neat. I also like her lots because she has a lot of faith in Jughead. Kevin Keller is very nice, but also speaks his mind and stands for something which I think is awesome. Sheila Wu is such a fashion plate and tries so hard in the one Archie issue to transform Betty into a girly girl. Dilton seems like a really loyal friend to Jughead next to Archie. He is also super smart which always can help when you are in a jam which Jughead seems to be in a lot. Pop Tate is just so nice to everybody. He just seems to looks at all these kids as his own kids.

I can see you spent some time thinking about why you like these characters, and I like your reasons. In the older comics, I think January was only in 8 stories (there might have been a couple of very minor appearances outside of those 8, where she was a main character, and the co-star of the story along with Jughead). I don't remember if they mentioned this in the new JUGHEAD, but January is the direct descendant of Archie Andrews from the 29th Century. In the old comics she's a Marshal in the Time Police, and that makes her technically Jughead's boss (he's a new recruit, so he's only a Deputy Marshal), but she falls in love with him (and he does with her, as well). It might not be exactly the same in the new comics, I just thought you'd be interested to know. Most people seem to think that in the new comics, Jughead just has a dream about her, and that she's not real. I might have a different opinion on that topic.

I don't remember if they do mention that she is a descedant to Archie. I do remember that the villain they are after is a descendant of Reggie though. In the new Jughead story January goes to kiss Jughead after he saves the day and he disappears at that very moment back to the present time. Convenient for Jughead, huh?

In the new Jughead story January goes to kiss Jughead after he saves the day and he disappears at that very moment back to the present time. Convenient for Jughead, huh?


More importantly, it's convenient for Jughead fans who get upset if he seems to have a girlfriend. That was always a source of controversy over the old comics in which January appeared as well, because Jughead appeared in the regular Archie Comics, while January only really appeared in the stories in JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE, and was never mentioned (by Jughead or anyone else) in stories outside of that. Is she real? Or just a figment of Jughead's overactive imagination? That seems to be what most people think. But if you could really travel through time, you could probably make people think a lot of things they really saw were "just imaginary". Time travel allows you to appear and disappear at will, or go back in time and change something that already happened (because you saw it happen) and prevent it from happening. Maybe even use 29th Century technology to 'magically' erase someone's memory.


Speaking of appearances and characters who appear in one series, while never being referred to in another, have you ever wondered why in JUGHEAD, Riverdale High is taken over by the evil Principal Stanger, while over in ARCHIE, everything at the school seems to be normal and Stanger isn't mentioned? It's almost as if one of those stories was taking place in a different alternate timeline or something...

1. Kevin Keller
2. Cosmo the Merry Martian
3. Dotty and Ditto
4. Jinx (the teen version much more than the 'Lil version)
5. Sam Hill
