Tuxedo Mark: Weirder Mysteries #1 came out today. I just read the preview pages of "Betty Cooper: Alien Hunter". It's set in the Jughead: The Hunger continuity. For a "horror" story, it's actually pretty hilarious.

DeCarlo Rules

Quote from: Midge Klump on June 23, 2016, 12:44:37 PM
My girlfriend and my Mom are the main ones who compare me to Midge. My girlfriend because she sees my digests all over the house and sometimes glances through them. Yes I will get her to be a fan someday. :) My Mom because she saw me grow up with Archie comics. To be honest I don't see it other than I have short dark hair. I am extremely short and Midge is not.


The original idea was that Moose is this hulking giant of a guy, and Midge is supposed to be petite. It just makes it look funnier that they're a couple if they're such physical opposites. That sort of got lost over the years, but it's inherent in her name, "Midge" (as in "midget"). If you don't believe it, look at Moose's previous girlfriend from the early 1950s -- the character from whom Midge essentially evolved. Her name was Lottie Little.

Than I even have more in common with Midge than I thought even though it really never transformed to the comic pages that she was really short. I guess next to Moose she is petite though.

Here's a couple of covers where the artist of this "New Look" take on Midge and Moose got the original concept right.

Yes I read those. Up against Moose she is tiny. Only Midge could love a face like Moose.

;D  I actually have always imagined Moose to be attractive, maybe not really handsome but he's not that bad looking, I don't think...

I think he is cute, but in this version and maybe it is just the scowl he has on his face but that isn't attractive to me. Now Midge on the other hand looks good.

Oh yeah. In Breakup Blues, the artist did him no favors.



Yikes!
