  • Vegan Jughead: Good point on the pricing.  The new Josie and the Pussycats trade is only $9.99 and I can't wait for it.  I can't imagine they're moving many digests at retail.  The hardcore geeks like us subscribe but I doubt our numbers are large.
    August 17, 2017, 10:01:49 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @Vegan - That investment capital helped pay for Adam Hughes, and printer's bill, plus they resurrected a few of their old cancelled solicits on trade paperbacks that the work had already been completed on.
    August 17, 2017, 09:45:09 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm going to take a wild guess and say that ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST must contain a new 20-page story. But why wouldn't they advertise that fact? It's baffling trying to guess what they're thinking.
    August 17, 2017, 09:37:32 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So Double Digests are 160 pages for $5.99, but ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST is 128 pages for $6.99? Yet somehow a 416-page trade paperback is priced at $9.99?? Or $12.99 for 104 pages of Adam Hughes reprints. I guess they must be using the old "dart-board pricing" method!
    August 17, 2017, 09:28:34 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: Archie November 2017 solicitations: Digests are up to $5.99!  Annuals are $6.99 so I guess Jumbos will be $7.99?  No one is paying that.  Subscribe or don't bother.  [link]

  • Vegan Jughead: DCR and Downloader, remember they also got that investment capital last year.  I think it was for a few hundred thousand dollars.  I don't know how long that will last, but I'm sure they're using that.
    August 17, 2017, 06:46:26 AM
  • BettyReggie: I saw the November 2017 Solicitations. Fiona Staples is doing a few covers. I can't wait to see what they look like though because they didn't show them yet.
    August 17, 2017, 06:06:23 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @The Downloader - What cash flow they have is coming not from the floppy titles, but from the digests and trade collections. They're just spewing out different one-shots and short-run series to see if they can find something that will last.
    August 17, 2017, 01:20:05 AM

My thoughts:

"Something wicked this way comes" turned out to be in reference to the battle between regular folks and the Serpents. I love the way that Betty says it, though, like she's mocking the whole idea.

Is FP reading "Chilling Adventures in Sorcery" in his jail cell?

I wish Betty, not Veronica, had taken Cheryl home, so they could do some familial bonding. (In general, neither girl seems to be reacting to the fact that they're related.) Cheryl's in a very bad emotional state right now. She needs to be given reasons to live. Betty and Polly are the best people to offer that to her.

Cheryl burns the mansion down. That's a bit of an...overreaction. I mean did she really burn all of her belongings and all of the photos of Jason? Or did she have those placed in storage elsewhere beforehand? Also, where's nana? And do the Blossoms have servants?

The rescue scene was epic. KJ Apa actually broke his hand during filming, so I'm guessing the cast that Archie's wearing in Pop's is genuine.

LOL at Archie looking at himself in the mirror and giving himself that "I totally got laid" look.

So Betty was gonna have sex too, but then she got snake-blocked.

Does Jughead have an ulterior motive for joining the Serpents?

Holy crap, who shot Fred?! There's a theory going around that it's the Black Hood. Jughead calls the incident "anything but random". Is Luke Perry signed for season 2?

Reading it, I haven't noticed really anything in terms of offensive content. There's the occasional "Omigod" or "hell", but that's it. Storywise, there seems to be no difference with Classic Archie (except for the stories being longer, but even Classic Archie was doing some of that in its last few years).

Great episode. I just want to add a few things to what everyone else has said:

My mom audibly gasped when Cheryl attacked Jughead. I can kinda understand it, though.

The Cheryl/Betty bathroom scene was kinda nice but too short. Betty's at a loss for words, so give the girl a hug or something!

Betty is a Blossom. Wow. I did not see that coming. That makes Betty and Cheryl third cousins, I believe. Same for Polly and Jason. Nowhere near scandalous. And, hey, last week, Cheryl was shown to have an interest in a Cooper lady, so...hint, hint.

Betty is the only one to think of Cheryl and what Clifford being the killer might mean for her. She immediately calls her to warn her, returning the solid that Cheryl did for Polly a few episodes back.

Betty has Cheryl's phone number in her contacts list. Just sayin'.

I was in suspense during Cheryl's slo-mo walk. I thought "Oh, man, are they gonna catch her?" Then she confronts her dad, doing the exact opposite of what Betty told her to (get out now). Cheryl has this quiet braveness to her when dealing with her parents (see also: warning Polly). She had no way of knowing how her dad would handle her knowing what he did. I guess she gambled he'd kill himself instead of her. That must have been what she was hoping for. (By the way, is deliberately revealing information to drive a person to suicide a prosecutable offense?)

I felt the wrap-up was rushed. I wouldn't have minded it being extended partly into the next episode. In particular, I would have liked to have seen Cheryl reveal she had the ring. We can assume she told Sheriff Kan'tdomyjob, because Clifford taking back the ring ends up in Jughead's summary, but I wanted to actually see Cheryl go "Surprise, bitches!" or something like that.

So next week's episode is setting up for season 2. Not sure what will happen. Maybe Sabrina will appear?

This makes me happy. And I know I am not the only one.

If you don't like the show, just stick to reading the old comics. Hoping for the show to fail contributes nothing positive to the world.

Here are my thoughts:

Tree-tapping ceremony. WTF?

Maple syrup empire. WTF?

Why does the board fear Cheryl being in charge? She seems capable of leading the company.

LOL at Cheryl's "Also, 4.0."

So Polly supposedly thinks the Blossoms had "something to do" with Jason's death, but they actually were responsible for sending Hiram to jail, so maybe Hiram put a hit out on Jason?

Veronica's apparent go-to solution after feeling she's wronged someone: flowers.

I'm surprised that Mrs. Muggs kept Veronica's flowers.

What will Cheryl do? Will it be as imminent as the repercussions from the sacked football players, which hasn't happened yet?

12
I enjoy "Riverdale". Yeah, it gets dark (more so than the comics), but there's also plenty of humor. I especially laugh at a lot of Cheryl's lines.

Also, the Blossoms made their fortune by building a maple syrup empire. A Maple. Syrup. Empire. And they have an annual tree-tapping ceremony (as YouTuber Andre calls it, "white-people $#|t"). The creators are clearly having fun with the concept and don't take it too seriously.

Also, anyone notice episode 11 is called "To Riverdale and Back Again"? Sounds like the perfect opportunity for some cameos!

I've been wondering what might have changed for Cheryl to go from telling Polly to avoid the Blossoms to inviting her to live with them. Did Cheryl and her parents have a little chat?

Then again, maybe nothing's changed, and Cheryl simply wants a big sister, so she won't be alone with her parents in that house. And maybe Cheryl's hoping Polly will divert some of her parents' attention away from her.

Some things that I noticed:

Penelope seemed surprised when Cheryl invited Polly to stay with them.

Cheryl's "She should be so lucky" line seems odd coming from her, considering what her home life is like.

Cheryl jokingly wants to be named the godmother (after Betty was already named the godmother). Then Granny predicts Polly will have twins. Looks like both girls will get the role.

What did Alice mean when she said "You should know by now what I'm capable of"?

So Hal got Alice to have her first child aborted. Is this a joking reference to Chic, who's barely acknowledged in the comics?

For all of Cheryl's excitement at wanting Polly to come and live with them, she's not there to greet Polly.
