  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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".

  • 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.

When Betty and Reggie team up
« on: April 27, 2016, 03:41:45 PM »
Back in the day, when Archie and Veronica were (mostly) going steady, Betty and Reggie used to team up to try and create trouble in paradise, usually with disastrous results. I feel there needs to be a thread for the hilarious stories where this dynamic duo caused mayhem.  :D

Here's the first one...

I guess Reggie is speaking of the playboy Archie as the "Creep".

I did mean the magazine size Life With Archie. Reggie & Betty were favorite part of the whole story. That's why my name is BettyReggie. I just wish they got married. Reggie would definitely want a Vegas wedding while Betty would want a simple wedding in a church. They could did a wedding in their reality show.

The reality show is also something up Reggie's alley and not Betty's.

Well in Life With Archie Reggie was so gun ho about doing the show. Betty wasn't. She only did it to make him happy. Simon the show producer want Reggie start fighting with Betty for better tv ratings. But at the end Reggie had a enough of Simon & said if we won't do the show if there going be fighting. Simon agreed to lose the drama & that made Betty happy.

From the one issue I read which was Life With Archie #16 the one where Kevin Keller gets married Reggie seems much more mild mannered then he does in the new series. I guess that is because he is a little older and more mature in Life With Archie.

Here's one of the pictures I posted at the old forum by Gabbie Gross, the one who drew some of BettyReggie's commissions. Gabbie says Betty/Reggie is her Archie OTP so she must have liked doing those commissions.

You constantly see people posting that panel, but I'd love to see the whole story. Reggie appears to have a very sincere expression on his face here, but I have my suspicions otherwise... I've never known Reggie to do anything that didn't involve his own self-interest.

Yeah, I know what you mean. This one has turned up in more image searches I've done than almost any single panel I can think of. It's been liked, re-posted, re-tweeted etc. all over the web. For a single out-of-context Archie Comics panel, this one fits the definition of "gone viral" better than any other I can think of.

Maybe it's because people who see it really want to believe that Reggie is offering a miserable, broken-hearted Betty a sympathetic and comforting shoulder to cry on, like she somehow penetrated his normally callous exterior.

Now I REALLY want to know what's going on in that story.

Oh there are quite a few more famous than that one but it is popular probably for the reason you said.
