Tell me which Archie comic is your favorite? The Archie Meets Ramones is my favorite.

To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.

So is that just a vote for Reggie in general, or was there some specific issue of REGGIE AND ME that you were thinking of?  ???

If the poll focus only covers Archie titles from the past four years I'll go with Archie #636. There's assuredly hundreds of books throughout ACP's history I'd otherwise select ahead of any of these.
Comics!

When comparing some of the best Dan Parent (written & drawn) book-length stories against each other, it's hard for me to pick one over the other. Some of those Christmas stories with Jingles and Sugar Plum from a few years back would be right up there, too.

On the other hand, both of these (ARCHIE #636 and ARCHIE #647) are right up there too, and it's hard for me to choose between them -- both have interesting and unusual twists on the usual status quo for Archie and the gang, which makes them both memorable.



I sort of agree with what Steve is saying, but it's even harder to select a single issue out of all the classic Silver Age stuff (well, I narrowed it down that far anyway). For me it would probably be an issue featuring all stories by Frank Doyle and Dan DeCarlo, but WHICH one? I don't know. I guess JOSIE had the longest stories in the early issues, with a new short beginning where the previous one ended (so they were like chapters in a longer story that needed to be read in order). Maybe JOSIE #9, with the story "You're the Tops" (and subsequent connecting chapters), where Josie and the gang go to the 1964 World's Fair:



But it's pretty hard to say that's a definitive choice, when I know there are a whole bunch of JOSIE issues that I haven't read, and that's just as true of a lot of the classic Silver Age issues of ARCHIE'S GIRLS BETTY AND VERONICA, and BETTY AND ME as well. But BETTY AND ME #3 and 4 would both be high on my list as well. Actually, most of the 1960s issues of BETTY AND ME have a high percentage of Dan DeCarlo stories, which dwindled quickly as the 1960s rolled on into the 1970s and Dan D started doing more and more covers and pin-ups for the whole Archie line (and even moreso at the midpoint in the 1970s when Bob Montana died and DDC took over the art on the Archie newspaper strip). Who do I have to kill to get some Silver Age Archives hardcover collections of titles like JOSIE and BETTY AND ME, that featured all or nearly all stories with Dan DeCarlo at the height of his artistic powers, right from the first issue?



Which brings me to my biggest gripe with ACP, and why I won't give them more of my money. If they were to ask me why I'm such a foot-dragger, and won't buy ACP products from Archie Digital, it's because they won't let me have direct access to the characters, titles, stories, and artists & writers I most want to read from their publishing history. When they make those Silver Age titles like JOSIE, ARCHIE'S GIRLS BETTY AND VERONICA, ARCHIE'S MADHOUSE, BETTY AND ME, REGGIE AND ME, and LIFE WITH ARCHIE -- and Bronze Age titles like ARCHIE'S TV LAUGH-OUT, JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS, SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH, THAT WILKIN BOY, and MADHOUSE GLADS available digitally (as single issues or archival collections), then I'll become an Archie Digital consumer in a heartbeat. If they're going to force me to try to find the stories I really want to read the most by sifting through one digital anthology collection (the exact contents of which they will never even tell me) after another, I'll just stick with their print digests and collecting back issues, thank you very much.  >:(

It's a quote attributed to Genghis Khan, & I'm sure Reggie agrees. 8)

Just a very "Reggie" kind of observation.
If Reggie was into introspection, that is.

Out of the six options here, the only one I've read is Archie #666, The Last Archie. And that one was not my favorite.

I don't remember what it was called, but there was an Archie a few years ago that had an Archie/Jersey Shore mashup, where some of the Archie characters began acting like their new friends from the Shore. Very random, but very funny and different.
I never finished Archie Meets Glee, but the bits of it that I read were interesting, too. The 6-parter where Archie got "married" in the future was well done as well.

I've read all of these and they're all good, but I wouldn't say any of these are the absolute best.


Out of these Reversedale is absolutely my favorite. I went from comic book store to comic book store trying to get it (This was before I got the subscription) and I finally found it almost a month after it came out. It was totally worth the wait, and I loved it!


My second favorite is Archie meets the Ramones. I love the Ramones, and I love Archie, so why wouldn't I love it?! It was perfect, the writing was good, and the art was B-E-A-UTIFUL (anyone know what movie that's from?) I just love it so much.


Also, I LOVE Harper! They need to bring her back again! She and Reggie were such a cute couple.
