Quote[/size]"The characters are also a romantic vision of another time, though not in the way you might think. Sure, there's a way in which the Riverdale gang harkens back to an invented, [/size]Pleasantville[/size]-esque period of American consensus and stability. But the time that we seek through Archie and his pals isn't a historical time, but rather a personal one: adolescence. When you're a child, you thumb through an Archie digest and, like the young Aguirre-Sacasa, dream of how great it'll be to be a teenager. When you pick up one of Goldwater's revamped Archie comics as an adult, you're dreaming of how great it was to be a teenager. Either way, you're pining for those axial days of high school.
