  • DeCarlo Rules: Thanks, VJ. I did not know of Penny Peabody. If they're going to reprint Little Archie, I wish they'd reprint the longer, better (pre-1965) ones by Bolling. It seems like the longer stories allowed Bolling to create something more interesting out of LA, but there seems like some taboo against reprinting them in the digests.

  • 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?

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Well folks, now that we have a new, sick, twisted, disturbing more-like-Twin Peaks-Than-Archie Riverdale TV show on the horizon, might as well compare it to 1990's To Riverdale and Back Again (AKA Return to Riverdale, the butchered home video version.)


Compare away!

YOU, sir, have insulted the honor of Twin Peaks!!  I demand a duel!  You may have your choice of weapons.

I'm actually looking forward to Riverdale. It seems like it's going to be totally insane. :)

I'd have to agree that it certainly sounds "totally insane", but maybe not in the same sense that you're meaning. More like in the sense that sanity is good, and INsanity is bad...

At least in the To Riverdale and Back Again movie, there's an explosion that Michael Bay would be proud of.

"To Riverdale and back again" was, quite frankly, the weirdest thing i've ever seen. People seem to hate Riverdale for being too dark and edgy, but TRABA was flat out depressing! Everyone was some combination of divorced, in an unhappy relationship, in an ABUSIVE relationship, or just generally miserable- either failed to make it in the big city or stuck in a small town. At least Riverdale looks entertaining, my friends and i stopped halfway through TRABA because it was so bleak!

I think Riverdale would be good if it was its own thing... but its not, its based on Archie Comics, and they just messed it up.
If your going to give beloved comic book characters their own show, the #1 thing you need to think about are the fans!


I like to use Sabrina the Teenage witch as an example. Shes one of my favorite characters, and the TV show was great! It payed amazing respect to the original source, but it was still able to branch out more... and it was a comedy! I don't think any Sabrina fan would be insulted by it.


It was a HORRIBLE idea to make Riverdale this awful drama... The comics are comedic! You think a comedy would be the obvious choice!



I haven't watched to Riverdale and back again in a while. But it was BAD.

Yeah,I agree with you lets hope it gets cancelled when it has mixed reviews or something especially hoping if it has 'low ratings' and hope that archie comics will be make a proper series instead but this time with either comedy (a sitcom) or a drama comedy like scrubs
