  • BettyReggie: Midtown Comics has the new January 2018 Comics. I preordered mine.

  • 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".

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Or a short black actress with punky hair.  ;D

  • JonInIowaCity: Looks like each episode of season 2 will end with a murder.
    October 18, 2017, 09:55:30 PM
  • BettyReggie: Midge looked like she was wearing wig. Couldn't they get a actress with short spunky black hair?
    October 18, 2017, 09:38:39 PM
  • BettyReggie: My Riverdale #7 came today.
    October 18, 2017, 05:24:07 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Plus, this Black Hood seems to be an outright murderer who isn't even targeting criminals...
    October 17, 2017, 09:45:36 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Wow, really? Ms. Grundy was a murder victim? That's a pretty radical departure... I mean if there's an actual corpse...  :o

  • BettyReggie: My Reggie & Me Graphic Novel came today.

Heh. "ChAos". "Chaos", as in what is happening at ACP. Quite the Freudian slip there, DR. Or was it?  ;D

Chaos (or "Khaos") Magick is another name for Black Magic, SAGG. I'm not sure, but I think it may have originated as RPGing terminology, since "alignments" with either Order or Chaos are important character attributes in game characters. (A magician, sorcerer, warlock or witch aligned with Order would be a user of White Magick.) A Chaos magician is increasing the balance of Chaos over Order in the universe by helping spread disorder and disharmony.

When Chilling Adventures of Sabrina first came out, I realized that was going to be too long to type more than once, so I went for an acronym, the same as people started abbreviating Afterlife With Archie as AWA. "CAS" may be even shorter, but it just isn't as serendipitous as "ChAoS" for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and I've been abbreviating it that way every time I have had occasion to comment on it since it debuted. I don't call it merely "Sabrina" to distinguish it from Sabrina the Teenage Witch, which I've been known to comment on from time to time, possibly even within a post discussing ChAoS -- and in my mind at least, the two Sabrinas are really completely different characters.
I was just being facetious, DR. You know, tongue in cheek....

It seemed like you thought I was making a subtle commentary on the state of the company, but I've been using the acronym for some time now. Not that the company has been anything less than chaotic in the entire time Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been in existence...

It's chaos of their own making, because they fail to have any real vision for anything but the short-term. They keep asking themselves what kind of gimmick can they come up with next to get some fan-buzz or awareness, but they really only have the most nebulous concept of what kind of company they are, or what kind of comics it is that they publish... or should publish. It's all bluster and swagger, and trying to talk a good game. Their only publishing philosophy seems to be "Archie can be anything, and currently it's whatever we decide to say it is." Jon Goldwater loves to talk it up like we're living in the Renaissance period of ACP, but the truth of the matter is that they are taking in less and less profit on floppy comics every year, and they've been on a downhill slide since the peak sales of Archie #1 in 2015. The number of cancellations of newly-solicited products has never been higher, but particularly for titles in the floppy comic format. The bulk of their profit is still being derived from reprints -- the digest titles, and trade collections. IMO the company's biggest conceptual mistake is in deciding to hinge its future on the direct market and the floppy comic format. They should be directing all their efforts outside of that market, because that's where their real audience is found. That means they have to forge new distribution alliances and partnerships, and develop new content in other formats for audiences outside of comic shops. If they really really can't be dissuaded from pinning all their hopes on the direct market and the floppy format, then their best bet would be to forget all about Archie and create entirely new titles and characters for that market from scratch, and change the company name, because "Archie" is exactly what's holding them back from being taken seriously by those consumers. But then they would be faced with the challenge of actually having to create new things out of whole cloth, a concept that clearly petrifies them.
