Those were the highlights of the 21st Century ACP publishing efforts. No surprise to find that most of those involved either Dan Parent or Gisele. The lackadaisical response in sales terms to both LIFE WITH KEVIN and YOUR PAL ARCHIE probably means those will stand as the last gasps of experimentation in trying to stretch the boundaries of the classic Archie formula. It feels sad to see it all go by the wayside...  :(  Also notable were some of the fun 'Archie multiverse' stories which Fernando Ruiz worked on like The Man From R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. and Night at the Comic Shop.

In retrospect, ARCHIE #600-606 wasn't that great (certainly not representative of Stan Goldberg's finest work, that's for sure) -- it was more significant in hindsight for setting up the premise for spinning off LIFE WITH ARCHIE (which I'm surprised you didn't mention, along with the KEVIN KELLER series). Even some of the lesser experimental efforts like Andrew Pepoy's KATY KEENE reboot and the updated, more realistic version of JINX were fun. The new COSMO is something along those lines, but I hold little hope for its survival in the current marketplace.
