  • 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.
    Today at 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.

  • 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!

    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".

    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.

With half of Riverdale High School having committed the mortal sin of ditching a Mantle house party, Archie and Betty’s attempts at interfering in Reggie’s life, Midge actually pitying Reggie and a friendship request from someone very unexpected, Reggie and Vader are going to have to get a lot smarter about their schemes!

Everything coming out in January 2017 looks awesome. I preordered all 3 Archie #16. I love all those covers. I love Reggie & Me #2 the main issue & Chip Zdarsky cover. But for
RiverDale, I just pre-order Dan Parent & Thomas Pitilli issues. And of course Derek's Jughead issue of Jughead.

Dang, don't tell me they're going to force me to buy a copy of RIVERDALE #1 just to get this sweet Dan Parent cover. Er... who's the girl with Archie here?



It's a relief to see that all the January 2017 digests are now solicited with the line Brand new story!, as I wasn't sure whether new lead stories would last into the new year. Wait a minute, did I just say ALL the January 2017 digests? DAMN that Archie Comics! Sure, they wait until I cancel my subscription to the 75th Anniversary Celebration Jumbo Comics Digest, and the minute I do, then they put a NEW lead story in there!! GRRRR...!!  Leave  it up to ACP, no matter what I do, when I zig, they zag. Could it have been that disgruntled email I sent them when I cancelled?  Or is that even the right solicitation copy for this digest? It's a Jumbo Comics Digest, not a Double Digest, as the copy says, after all. :knuppel2:

She could be Valerie, or even Josie. Or maybe even Harper. Heck, if I didn't already know Reggie was going to be Hispanic in the show, I wouldn't put it past them to turn him into a black female character, either.

Ah, I think she's Josie. I recall she'll be Black ALONG with Valerie. Redundancy, anyone?  ::)

I just don't understand. ACP already has the diversity angle down pat. Why go and change the iconic look? I COULD understand if just about all the characters were White, but I don't recognize this show, save the characters just having the same names....  :tickedoff:

Reggie is going to be Asian, not Hispanic. But yeah, I get what you mean.

I think Harper's supposed to Indian. Because in thst issue where she signing her book that she wrote her mom was there & she was looked Indian. Harper's father must be Mr. Lodges brother because he looked like his brother Hiram.

No, she's not half-Indian. Her mother's African-American.

Chip Zdarsky is drawing REGGIE? Oh, he's not drawing the story, just the cover, you mean. Apart from hanging them on a wall or just putting them in plastic bags and admiring them, I don't make much of a connection between the cover and the comic (by which I mean the story written and drawn on the inside). They're pretty much interchangeable, so I consider the cover that was drawn by the interior artist to be the "real" cover.
