  • DeCarlo Rules: Presumably with an ongoing B&V series, they'd want to keep it nominally in continuity with the ongoing ARCHIE title.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Oh, I hadn't noticed that the story is "Senior Year", so that explains it. It's a one-off story arc, just like "Freshman Year". They're not going to keep them as seniors permanently, or have them graduate and go on to college in an ongoing series.

Daren is referring to Coach Clayton, who seems to care more about the trophy than his son's safety.

Well, obviously he's a school coach so he's got to be concerned about doing his job, and the school ski team. But in the context of the story, I don't think enough time had passed that they were really wondering whether Chuck had gotten hurt or was hopelessly lost somewhere. He was just late for where he was supposed to be, so they started to become concerned and went looking for him. At the time they're first starting to look, time is running out for getting him where he's supposed to be, but obviously if they'd spent more time searching for him and not finding him, they'd have started to become more concerned about him and less about the school winning some ski trophy. It's just that you don't get any sense of context from looking at the cover all by itself. I'd have to find the story again to check, but it's kind of thing that would have been noticeable in the story itself, I think.




Actually it's a little known fact that upon hearing that comment Chuck became so embittered against his father that he renounced sports altogether to become a henpecked cartoonist.

All About Archie / Re: Reboot artwork quality (or lack thereof).....
« on: April 16, 2016, 08:29:06 am »


Can you remember back when DeCarlo was having his legal battles with ACP?  Were these things discussed among the younger generation of artists & writers, or was there ever any sense of foreboding about the 'handwriting on the wall', etc?  After all, this was even after such well-publicized battles of 'creator vs. company' as Siegel & Shuster vs DC and Kirby vs Marvel. Surely at ACP this must have seemed like a large and scary prospect.

When I first started back in '94, the main guy at Archie... and deservedly so... was Dan DeCarlo. Very closely behind him was Stan Goldberg. They were the giants of the company and there was a sense that they were the top priority (Again, deservedly so!) and that they would always be taken care of. (HA!)

There was already a sense of foreboding because even then the company was trimming the fat. Books like Archie's Christmas Stocking, Archie's Spring Break Special and Betty & Veronica Spectacular were getting peeled away and we were getting worried. Brother, we had NO idea back then!

It was definitely a shock when Dan and the Company first started having their trouble. The shock, however, was tempered by the fact that Dan kept right on working. The guy was invincible! He could shake the Company down and they needed him so badly that they still gave him work. He even gave some pretty searing and candid interviews at the time and he was still working. The highest crime in Archie's eyes has always been when one of their creator's goes public. They can club you over the head and if you say "ouch" out loud, then YOU'RE the jerk. I'm not sure what exactly was the final straw for Archie if it was the actual lawsuit, the heated interviews or what but at some point they had enough and they stopped giving Dan work. When that happened, we realized that no one was safe.  No one, however, was more traumatized by the overwhelmingly negative publicity than Archie itself. In many ways, this was a black eye on them that never completely went away.
