Tuxedo Mark: My review of "Cinderblossom" from Cheryl Blossom #20: https://riverdalereviewed.wordpress.com/2022/08/14/comics-cinderblossom/

Aug 13 2022 9:51am
DeCarlo Rules: According to the current profiles for "traditional" characters on Archiecomics.com, the official nomenclature now is: Josie McCoy, Melody Valentine, and Valerie Smith. Pepper has no character profile, but there are only 21 of them.

Aug 12 2022 5:23pm
Tuxedo Mark: The new Pepper story that came out uses Valentine for Melody, so I guess that's officially her last name now.

Aug 12 2022 3:11pm
Tuxedo Mark: Melody's last name was Jones in the comics and Valentine in the movie. In the Josie manga (which came out after the movie), Josie's last name was Jones for the sole purpose of making a Bridget Jones reference. I forget what the New Riverdale comics used.

Aug 12 2022 3:09pm
Tuxedo Mark: Valerie's had the last name Smith in the comics, but I don't know when that started. Her last name in the movie was Brown. Josie's last name was James in the comics and McCoy in the movie and on Riverdale.

DeCarlo Rules: It's weird that sometimes they acknowledge that a character hasn't been seen in some time (I remember them doing that with Frankie Valdez, Evelyn Evernever, and Cheryl).

Aug 12 2022 10:53am
DeCarlo Rules: And Pepper did have a small appearance somewhere else in a classic story since Civil Chore, but I can't remember now. But the recent digest story is the first where she's actually the title character.

Aug 12 2022 10:50am
DeCarlo Rules: Valerie's had the last name Smith since... the 2001 movie? Unless Pepper's last name predates that , I can't see any excuse for using Smith again.

Aug 12 2022 10:47am
DeCarlo Rules: Stories have definitely been rescheduled from their original solicitations. Some digest solicits that promised two stories did not deliver when published..

Aug 10 2022 10:19am
Tuxedo Mark: I think we're meant to assume Pepper (like all of the rarely-used characters) have been in Riverdale this whole time (see, for example, Civil Chore, where she cameoed), but they don't warrant appearances.

Sabrina at Gravestone Heights

Sabrina at Gravestone Heights was first featured in Archie and Friends #2 and in almost every issue of the series through #14. Sabrina continued to be featured in Archie and Friends after this (though not at Gravestone Heights) until at least issue #20 before getting her own series, again, in 1997. She is featured on the cover of Archie & Friends #21 but not inside.

Here are the Gravestone Heights stories (12 total) I have found and their corresponding Archie and Friends issue number:

#2 Double Date (1st appearance)
#4 Mummy Dearest
#5 Aw, What the Hex
#6 Camp Cramps!
#7 Me, Myself, and Why?
#8 Our Spider, Have You Spied Her?
#9 Now You See Her Now You Don't
#10 Tuned Out!
#11 A Bone to Pick
#12 To Tell a Lie!
#13 For Your Eye Only!
#14 The Homecoming! (last Gravestone Heights story)

Has anyone found any others?

I know this is an old thread, but there is also Sabrina's Halloween Spooktacular #1.
https://www.comics.org/issue/277520/

I don't have that issue, but the stories "Trick or Trick" and "Who's Who in Gravestone Heights (one page)" are also in 50 Magical Stories, along with "My Spider, Have You Spied Her?"

Curiously, in Trick or Trick, Sabrina's boyfriend is a vampire named Milton, but in Who's Who, Milton is a mummy, and her boyfriend's name is Drac.
Edit: Oh, nevermind, I read another story where they explain it.

Would love to see all of these gathered into a collection, but for now, I'm just trying to track down the digital reprints, maybe make my own compilation.

Your timing is fortuitous. They just recently started reprinting the Sabrina at Gravestone Heights stories in Betty & Veronica Jumbo Comics Digest. #297 has the first two stories, "Double Date" and "Mummy Dearest" (although curiously printed in reverse order). S@GH had appeared before in the Sabrina section of B&VJCD in random issues (there is always a Sabrina section), so you could check backwards, but I suspect they will probably cycle through them all in upcoming issues.

Thanks. This is what I've found so far:

SABRINA AT GRAVESTONE HEIGHTS 91313

Pep Digital Vol. 026: Sabrina the Teenage Witch: 50 Magical Stories
  • pg. 36 - "Trick or Trick"
  • pg. 44 - "Who's Who in Gravestone Heights"
  • pg. 66 - "Our Spider, Have You Spied Her?"

Pep Digital Vol. 112: Sabrina's Monster Manual
  • pg. 82 - "Aw, What the Hex!"
  • pg. 105 - "Mummy Dearest"

Betty & Veronica Comics Double Digest (Halloween Annual) #237
  • pg. 41 - "Double Date"
  • pg. 47 - "Now You See Her, Now You Don't!"

The Pep Digital ones are nice because they're only a dollar or two, and most books have around 150 pages. But I couldn't find any sort of index anywhere, and they don't even have ToCs or anything (nor credits for most stories), so you're really getting a grab bag of stories.

A search for "sabrina gravestone heights" at Comics.org comes up with a good list of sources, but not every comic ever printed has been fully indexed yet: https://www.comics.org/searchNew/?q=sabrina%20gravestone%20heights

Betty and Veronica Double Digest Magazine #273 is the only other one listed available in digital (one story, "The Homecoming!"), but it's $5, so I've been putting it off. I might try to search more Pep Digitals, or see if there are any stories in any of the free "Dollar Digest" issues (but I suspect not).

It's shocking how random they are about some things at ArchieCo.  >:(

You'd think they'd have digitized all of the Archie & Friends issues by now... there were only 159 of them (and the last 3 issues were all-reprint), so it isn't like one of those series that ran for hundreds of issues. There were a lot of good stories in that run (and Sabrina and Josie & the Pussycats, too).

And yes... GCDb is also very very spotty about indexing Archie Comics.

So... checking this out, it appears that the Sabrina Halloween Spooktacular came out between A&F #6 and 7 (and if I'm not mistaken, those A&F issues may be the only appearances of the Carneys outside of the Spooktacular and their own one-shot comic).

The early team of Bill Golliher and Dan Parent came up with some off-the-wall concepts in the early 1990s. Jughead's Diner, Sabrina at Gravestone Heights, The Carneys and (I think) Archie 3000 were all from the brain (or brains) of one or both of them.

Yeah, I love that weird '50s do-wop monster movie theme that was kind of popular in the 80s/90s. Little Shop of Horrors, A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, the Beetlejuice cartoon, Pee-Wee's Playhouse, Pound Puppies: Legend of Big Paw, etc. etc. I grew up with a lot of that stuff.

Jughead's Time Machine was really good too, even though I usually disapprove of [spoiler]Jughead breaking character over a girl[/spoiler].

I really want to get Jughead's Diner, but I might just grab a Comixology free trial for now.

It wasn't just January McAndrews in Jughead's Time Police, though... it was a whole thing going on for Jughead in his regular title in the late '80s. He was also caught up in a love triangle between Debbie and Joani.

I don't like it :(

Glad he came back to his senses (until that TV show, at least).

DeCarlo Rules

The whole thing with Jughead romancing girls in the late '80s just strikes me as reactionary homophobia, like they were afraid at that time that the whole "woman-hater" angle made Jughead look gay. So it was just like when in the 1950s they introduced Batwoman and Batgirl into the comics, to sidetrack any insinuations of Batman & Robin being gay. I'd say the fact that it was happening for Archie Comics in the late 1980s had a lot to do with ACP trying to transition from a greatly-reduced newsstand-distribution market to the direct-market distribution of comic book shops.
