Hanna Barbera Montana: The daily cartoonist showcases the first and last of the Archie comic strip - https://www.dailycartoonist.com/index.php/2021/03/04/first-and-last-archie-comic-strip/

DeCarlo Rules: They never say things like "cancelled". Things just come to an end. ARCHIE #713 came out six months ago, and there have been no new issues solicited since then...

Tuxedo Mark: Has it been cancelled?

Mar 01 2021 11:04am
DeCarlo Rules: It seems like my prediction of the ARCHIE series launched in 2015 came true... it lasted 5 years (or 47 issues, which would have been 4 years if it were published monthly). Oh well -- that was four issues more than Manga SABRINA...

DeCarlo Rules: Can't remember the last Archie floppy comic I bought that wasn't a #1 issue...

Feb 11 2021 11:52am
DeCarlo Rules: Not retired, but it seems like floppy one-shots will be more frequent compared to series.

Tuxedo Mark: Vol 2 of the The Riverdale Diaries graphic novel series is now available for preorder. It stars Veronica and will come out on November 16. Oddly, Vol. 2 is available on Kindle, whereas Vol. 1 seems to be a physical-only release.

DeCarlo Rules: Is it just me, or does it seem kind of weird that ACP is still crediting Victor Gorelick as Co-President/Editor on their credit pages? I can see where they'd still want to honor his memory, but...

Wow okay you win. I'm not here to go back and forth on this.

Enjoy being that negative.

Well I still haven't changed my mind about how I feel about this new TV series. I still despise it. I hope it won't last, but seeing as there are shows on TV that are just absolutely horrible and yet have lasted for years, it wouldn't surprise me if this thing lasts.
They have changed so many things to the point that the only thing this show has in common with the comics is just the name, and the character's names. That's about it. They have absolutely no respect towards the legacy of the comic and to the fans.

There's a lot there that I won't disagree with — passion or no, but ...

QuoteCould it be good? Yes
Nope, it's going to suck.
The show as a whole may not on it's own terms — it will definitely suck at being Archie.

QuoteEveryone involved is at fault for what this turned into, and that goes straight to the top of the company.
You should not blame the cast or crew — they get next to no creative input, not even Luke Perry could rewrite more than trivia even for his own character ... most probably don't know lots more than the name anyway and are just trying to get by ... blame the people who created it and the Archie management who support it and such, yes, but only them.

Comics have never gotten much respect — just a fact of life ...

Maybe because you can't?  Strong convictions you got there.  Oh, I'm spreading not only hate now but negativity too.  Cool, I'm like a mahou shoujo villain.   ;D ;D ;D ;D

I think it will suck in general.  There's nothing about this that doesn't sound cringe worthy.

I said something similar earlier about the actor for Reggie, I meant the creative/production/ownership side.  But something people shouldn't do is hide behind the actors.  Like if we see Jon Goldwater responding to a question about controversial cast race changes by just praising the actors, he's a full of **** liar because that's what every white person has ever done in a similar position where they made the call on something like that.  I also don't think the actors and crew have to be supported.  They are already privileged enough to be in show busines, and that's real privilege, not the BS Tumblr kind.  Most people are doing real jobs that require a lot more work with no thank you or public recognition of any kind.

In this case, one of the people that doesn't respect them was granted ownership stake in the company and is related by blood to the people who did treat them with respect in the past.

Oh I can go back and forth but you are so shitty and cynical and impossible that it's not worth the effort.

I'm here to share in my love of Archie not argue with incredibly rude people about archie.

Oh, cool, you can, but you won't because I'm so cynical and shitty.  XD  Your first contact with me was calling my opinions "hate."  Not trying to retort me, but crying about the fact I posted bad think.  If you think that was hate, you've probably have never experienced it in your entire life.

Maybe you should stop crying and calling me names like a big blubbering baby?  Or you could get even saltier and I could use said salt to rim my margarita glass.

Thank You Fernando!  You just made my week!  To have someone as important as you to respond to me, let alone it being your first post, means something to me!  It means that there is a slim possibility that I wont be a nobody all my life!

One person's suck is another man's bl... er, ... probably should refrain from finishing that, but a lot of people will probably enjoy it ...

I'm flabbergasted over the Reggie casting
To me Reggie is this drop dead gorgeous James dean type but who is a total jerk face
I don't see that with this casting.
Veronica got me up in arms with her crazy eyebrows lol
I cried Kill Me Now! when I saw the Reggie casting.  :tickedoff:

By James Dean, are you guys talking about Porno James Dean?  Or the dead one? (LOL)
