Well, to be fair, that is another universe's version of the gang.


That's what I keep trying to tell people, but as far as some people and ACP are concerned, they consider it "the real deal" universe.

BUT... we are talking about RIVERDALE here. And Adam Huges' BETTY & VERONICA is the one they are reprinting along with the other New Riverdale #1 issues in the trade paperback THE ROAD TO RIVERDALE (or RIVERDALE DIGEST #1 if you're too cheap to shell out for the full-sized TP), and those use the TV series logo, so it's fair to say that ACP is trying to establish a link between the New Riverdale comics and the TV series. Just so you know where I was going with that.

Now, when talking about the comics, which do you think TeenVogue is more likely interested in? Probably the ones ACP sent them as research material for their article. No, I can't see the TeenVogue writer sifting through old classic Archie floppies or digests researching the differences between RIVERDALE and the comics. Scanning through a couple dozen issues of New Riverdale comics sounds like more their speed. And it does account for their saying that B&V are not friends in the comics, compared to the TV show. Besides, I'm sure if it weren't for the TV series, no one connected to TeenVogue would be caught dead reading comics, and if they were, it sure wouldn't be Archie classic-style comics... if they could actually find some of those. But I don't see TeenVogue writers as spending a lot of time cruising the magazine racks at Walmart or Barnes & Noble, do you?

Judging from next week's Riverdale previews, haters of the young-Grundy-seducing-Archie storyline and lovers of traditional Grundy might get some justice.

i haven't watched this week's episode (or next week's previews) yet, but I wouldn't mind finding out that Grundy the music teacher has a spinster aunt with the same name who is also a teacher who maybe comes out of retirement to return to teaching at Riverdale High School.

I was so happy when I saw the preview! I'm fine with change, but the whole Grundy-Archie thing is horrible.

I, for one, am a very happy camper with how Aguirre-Sacasa is handling the show. I have been loving his work on Afterlife, so I might be a little biased. I think that any of the doubts that I might have had with casting has been laid to rest. The cast is pitch-perfect. The show is very different from the source material, and from the get I'm always worried when a show sites Twin Peaks as one of its references - because most of those shows don't get it right. But this show has taken a part of that formula, and grounded it - then placed it in the Riverdale landscape with versions of these classic archetypes.

I'm kind of late to the game, but I'm glad I just binged the first season in its entirety - and have started watching the second season. I know I'm in for a real treat.

I am really enjoying this show and I must say KJ Apa has been at his best. I am also inspired by the Southside Serpents gang as I am a motorbiker myself. I purchased this leather jacket at USA Leather Jackets. Even there is a coupon code offer also going on. For more details, visit the site now
