Refresh History
  • Vegan Jughead: Penny Peabody was the girlfriend of Fangs Fogarty, the bully in the Little Archie comics.  I know you don't love those and even if you did read a lot of them, she's barely in them.  Really obscure.  Real Ms Grundy is dead I think.  This one stole her identity if I remember correctly.

  • DeCarlo Rules: ...and if Ms. Grundy wasn't Ms. Grundy, then who was she, and where is the real Ms. Grundy?

  • DeCarlo Rules: Penny Peabody? ... original character created by the show's writers?

  • Vegan Jughead: Hey but who needs Moose and Midge when you can have such prominent characters as Penny Peabody and Toni Topaz on the show?
    October 22, 2017, 10:30:03 AM
  • 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.
    October 21, 2017, 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!

  • BettyReggie: Midtown Comics has the new January 2018 Comics. I preordered mine.

  • CAPalace: Seriously though why are Moose and Midge like one of the first people to die whenever they are in the horror stories line and now Riverdale lol
    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".

  • Vegan Jughead: Oh, wow, that sucks.
    October 20, 2017, 09:21:57 AM
  • JonInIowaCity: I'm not saying that they're dead, but they're not listed as appearing in any future episodes in IMBD, while other minor characters are.
    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.
    October 20, 2017, 07:43:40 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Or a short black actress with punky hair.  ;D

I would love to get Archie #18, the main cover looks the best. The Archies One Shot has 2 good covers, the main one & the red & white one. Reggie & Me #4 has 2 good covers the main one & one where he outside of the school.

Me too! It'll be a long time before the well runs dry for Dan Parent's modern updates of classic fairy tale stories.

Re: Sabrina the Teenage Witch #1 one-shot: In this reboot she never even attended high school, and starts college after previously being home-schooled by her aunts? With story and art by the team from IDW's My Little Pony comic? That seems to indicate to me that the story and art might actually be comical/cartoony, so maybe I'll give this one a look after all.

EDIT: I actually missed the interior page penciled and inked by Andy Price when I first scanned these solicits. Some interesting details in that drawing, including Sabrina's t-shirt that has the GROOVIE GOOLIES logo on it, a Chinese take-out box labeled "Lee Ho Fooks" (taken from a line in the song "Werewolves of London" by Warren Zevon; "I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand/Walking through the streets of Soho in the rain/He was looking for the place called Lee Ho Fooks/Gonna get a big dish of beef chow mein"), and a pendant (seen hanging from the bookcase) taken from a classic episode of Star Trek. This is definitely starting to look more promising to me. I only hope the story injects some humor into the proceedings.

Midtown Comics hasn't put them up yet on their site. This time all the digests look good. But I simply don't buy because I have plenty already. And I have a lot of those 1000 page books.

Just getting the main Archie book with the Hack cover.

Other covers I like

The Archies One- Shot - cover by David Mack

Jughead: The Hunger - cover by Robert Hack

B&V Friends Comics Annual #253 - cover by Dan Parent

Riverdale - cover by Peter Krause.

I think all three variant covers for Sabrina are nicer than the main one. Can't decide which is best. Why isn't the main cover by Andy Price? I know it's black and white but if the interior is as nice as that cover it's going to be a damn fine comic.
