  • 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!

  • 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: 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.

 "Toni Topaz is a character who was added on a little more recently in the comic books and she's always been very, very vivacious, exciting and a bit of a disrupter."

Yeah in all of two stories and the gazillion covers she was on that didn't include her in a single panel. :)

At least tell me they have casted a Midge.

Announcements / New: enhanced site security
« on: May 15, 2017, 12:33:05 AM »
Just a quick note for everyone. With the latest update to the forum software, I have switched the site over to use https (secure) URLs instead of plain http. You shouldn't notice much difference (though you'll now see a green lock and "Secure" next to the URL in Google Chrome and similar things in other browsers), but this will enhance security, especially where usernames and passwords are concerned. If you have any questions or run into any problems, let me know.

Telling ACP readers the truth? That's a novel concept. Maybe it will catch on. Or not.  :P

Archie Comics' PR department is pretty much North Korean state media at this point.

All About Archie / Re: Shipping characters in the Archie universe
« on: March 24, 2017, 12:07:35 AM »

Honestly, I can go with most of the ships that Archie comics throw at me. But some of the ones I don't like are:


- Archie and Cheryl. It makes sense why Archie would want her, but she won't tolerate him for long. And it is purely physical on Archie's part, so it's pointless.
- Chuck and Nancy with other people. They go well together.
- Little Archie shipping. No ten year olds "date" the way the Little Archie gang does.

I agree re: Little Archie. The book was cute and fun when they were acting like little kids and going on adventures but once it started dealing with romantic hijinks, what was even the point of having Little Archie stories if they were just going to end up like the main title?

Personally, I don't really hate any ships except for something awful like minor/adult. I'm not fond of Archie/Veronica or Reggie/Veronica because I don't find them particularly interesting.

My favorite canon couple is Archie/Valerie, pretty much the only relationship in Archie Comics with any depth.

Semi-canon, I like Reggie/Betty, the shippers on this forum really made me appreciate this pairing. They were fun together when they were scheming to keep Archie and Veronica apart.

Before the reboot I would have wanted to see Veronica paired up with one of the new kids, either Lonnie (Lonnie and Ronnie, how quaint) because he was a rich kid like her but a lot more down to earth, so I think he would have been good for her, or with Danny D'Angelo because I think he would be a good foil for Veronica.

Of course my main ship is Jughead/Veronica. They would make the WORST couple but it would be entertaining to behold.


Little Archie shipping. No ten year olds "date" the way the Little Archie gang does.


Have you been in the South?  ???

I don't think she means adults dating 10 year olds.   ;D

All About Archie / Re: Is It Worth Watching "Riverdale?"
« on: March 04, 2017, 09:58:12 PM »
It's shit.


    It's stupid comments like this that make using the Internet much less enjoyable than it should be.  No one gains anything from such a comment.   I think all of the changes from the comic books (there are many) are a mistake, but the show is still fairly interesting.  Veronica, in particular, is well acted.  I could not pass up the chance to see these characters on TV, in any case. I regret the overall serious tone.  I wish there were a lot more humor.   
    If nothing else, the actors make great photographs (screen caps). 

What's stupid about it?  I'm just stating facts as I see them.  Shit is shit, internet friend.  But if you are really upset about my opinion, here's a form you can fill out:

^ The sad thing is that the liberals do not care. In fact they were applauding what happened at Berkeley. Those terrorists- because that's what they are- destroyed property, burned things, beat people up all in the name of "free speech and love" and no one batted an eye. Even the police did nothing to stop the destruction. Unbelievable. This really should have been a wake up call for the left side, but nope, they are so blind with their hatred they don't want to see.

A wake up call for who? If the police did nothing, does that imply that they're all liberal terrorists too, at least passively? Or maybe they needed to follow orders from the Police Commissioner or something -- which I guess makes him a suspect as a pawn of the left wing. But possibly it was a tense situation where if the police took action, they risked touching off a powder keg of escalating violence. There have always been radical extremists, but they're not conscripts in some sort of Liberal Army that can be court-martialed. They're acting on their own, not following some sinister liberal conspiracy master plan. Maybe they'll become the new cliche comic book villains, replacing the 'crazy as a bag of cats' right-wing conservative nutcases. It could happen. I'm sure I've probably already read a dozen stories with radical eco-terrorists, so it probably will. And yes, you will have some people who would never act on it, but will cheer them on, just like there were people saying "Nuke Iraq!" after 9/11.

I guess it's probably just easier to divide all people into a Red Team and a Blue Team, and make sure they always wear their uniforms so we can all tell each other apart and know who's the enemy. And if someone refuses to wear the uniform and show team spirit, then they must be a player for the opposite team, so you know you can't trust them. That's just a mental exercise in visualization, but what really happens is that people latch onto a word for identifying the enemy, and then proceed to start rubber-stamping everyone with one name or the other (purely for the purposes of keeping the Bad Guys sorted out). If you're doing it, then you can guarantee someone else is doing it to you. We don't need no stinking badges. It is amazingly difficult to be a terrorist or even a radical without an ideology. Even an anarchist has an implied ideology, whether he'll admit to it or not. Just accept the fact that the minute you start sorting people into lists of USes and THEMs, you become part of the problem, not part of the solution. Is it any wonder I hate politics?

True story: The Pledge of Allegiance was changed in the 1950s to include the words "One nation, under God" in the hopes that it would help root out Communists in our midst. Because it's a well known fact that all Communists are Atheists, and thus it was assumed the reverse also applied. I'm not really sure if the intended effect was more along the lines of spontaneous human combustion or just a bad actor being dumbstruck in the middle of a performance.

Oh boy, a trademark DeCarlo Rules post that says so much yet absolutely nothing at the same time.  Thanks for following through when I criticized you for that kind of thing earlier in the thread.   ;D

It was already an exploded powder keg of escalating violence.  The police did nothing to protect those people and businesses that were attacked.  People like you are part of the problem honestly.  You're presented with evidence of wrong doing by your side and all you can do is deflect, deflect, deflect, and then fall back on some cliche about anyone complaining being a partisan.  What a joke.  I've witnessed the left completely destroy itself in about 5 years time, and yet no one wants to address the problem.  Kids have been brain washed to the point they think that it's okay to physically attack people over perceived social justice issues, and all the left can do is ignore the problem like nothing happened.  It's beyond absurd at this point.  You talk about teams, but if anyone on the right did anything even approaching this it would be like World War III in the media.  Yet, you don't perceive any bias.   ::)

Regardless of if you like President Trump or not, the fact of the matter is he is now the President for the next 4 (or maybe 8?) years. How about supporting him and the country? Because all the rioting and whining from the liberals is only hurting the country. All the hate that the liberals said was coming from Trump and his supporters, is actually coming from the left side. They have shown such tremendous hate and ignorance and stubbornness and all that is only dividing the country more than it already is. Let's come together as a country again, put on our big-boy pants and support America instead of crying and wearing safety pins and other nonsense. My two cents. I don't mean to be mean but it is annoying watching all the constant whining from the ones who lost. Anyway, let's get back to Kmart  :)

Absolutely.  Trump supporters can't even go to places like L.A. without being physically attacked, and when they were attacked, often times on video, the absurdly non-objective in the tank media decided not to cover it.  How is anyone supposed to respect the left when they act like that and have liars in the news protecting them?  Heck, the riot at the Chicago Trump rally was planned by Democratic operatives who admitted it on video.  The video was released to the media, and still jokers like CNN refused to cover it.  Then a few slime balls torture someone they say is a Trump supporter on video, and after CNN is forced to cover it because it went viral, Don Lemon says they aren't evil and suggests they are probably good kids.  XD

It's what happens when you feed stupid kids Marxist revolutionary rhetoric uniornically.  They start thinking violence that is politically motivated is acceptable.  The ends justify the means to them, and people that disagree are the enemy.  That's where we are with the left is right now. The sad thing is the politicians, the grass roots and even average card carrying Democrats, of which I used to be one (but never again), will never ever say anything against their own kind ever.  They can attack people, torture them, demean people, discriminate, act like adult babies throwing tantrums, and never will they ever be policed by their own people or held responsible for their actions.

As for Steve so upset I poked fun at California, the left and the Democrats didn't give a rat's ass about the Rust Belt for the past 30 years.  Their trade policies destroyed the place and never once did I hear any of them ever admit there was a problem or say anything in favor of the workers who lost their factories to globalization.  They probably care more about the Syrian refugees who took place in gang rape attacks in places like Cologne, Germany than they do about our own citizens who live outside their communities.  So yeah, good luck ever getting our votes back again.  The fact you don't care about us was made explicitly clear due to your reaction to the election results.

I guess I'm supposed to feel insulted, but that would be predicated on me actually caring what you think.

Ooooh... let's play Internet Fight Club!

Let's go over this again maybe.  Trump just won one of the most significant electoral landslides in history when all the know-it-alls said it was impossible, and you just said him getting re-elected was impossible because of reasons I guess.  Then I said you need to work on your critical thinking because that's an illogical conclusion, and you reply that's an insult, with no retort to my point at all.

If you want an insult.  Here's a good one.  Just because you routinely type walls of endless text here does not mean you're intelligent.  It's actually pretty annoying, and you barely if ever have a good point to make because you're a pretentious blowhard.   ;D

... Well, not exactly, but you could be fooled into thinking that, in this parody comic that appeared in the Sept. 1970 issue of the NATIONAL LAMPOON. Actually, the artwork here by penciller Joe Orlando and inker Henry Scarpelli looks like it's straight out of an issue of DC comics' BINKY'S BUDDIES, one of the many Archie Comics lookalike titles from the late 1960s/early 1970s era.
