DeCarlo Rules: Plus the "Sixty Magical Stories" TP. About time they showed a little love for classic Sabrina, apart from Chilling Adventures...

Tuxedo Mark: I'm not impressed with the artwork. If they're going to revive Archie's Weird Mysteries, they should at least have the characters dress in their outfits from the show and make Archie's convertible red. Are those supposed to be Veronica and Jughead?

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.
