  • DeCarlo Rules: So let me see if I've got this right... The confusingly-titled Archie: The Married Life 10th Anniversary is NOT a sequel to any part of the 37-issue run of "The Married Life" in Life With Archie Magazine. But it IS a sequel (10 years on ) to ARCHIE #600 to 606, "Archie Marries".
    March 04, 2019, 02:00:25 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Ironically Dan Parent was not really involved with the LIFE WITH ARCHIE series at all although he did do ARCHIE #606, the epilogue to "Archie Marries". It's a little confusing now, since this new series is yet another parallel universe where Archie Andrews didn't die... or maybe two of them.
    March 03, 2019, 01:19:06 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: After Archie Meets Batman '66, I was wondering whether that was it for long-form classic Archie stories. So it's nice to see The Married Life again, even if it's only a 6-issue epilogue.

It'll be interesting to see what they do with it. I'm not too familiar with the source material but it's good to see them giving it a spotlight again. Hopefully it'll renew interest in the comics.

The future queen of pin-ups has arrived! Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars) has been cast as aspiring fashion designer Katy Keene in the upcoming Riverdale spin-off pilot in development at The CW!

"Katy Keene" follows the lives of four young people following their dreams in New York City and features Ashleigh Murray reprising her "Riverdale" role of Josie McCoy, along with Jonny Beauchamp (Penny Dreadful) as Ginger Lopez, Julia Chan (Saving Hope) as Pepper Smith, and Camille Hyde (American Vandal) and Lucien Laviscount (Snatch) as Alexandra and Alexander Cabot.

Bold, big-hearted and independent, Katy Keene is a twenty-something New Yorker who aspires to be a fashion designer. When she's not working as a personal shopper at a luxury department store, she's navigating friendship and dating in the big city.

Katy's comic origins date back to 1945 when she was introduced in the pages of Wilbur Comics #5 by Bill Woggon. The model, actress and singer was known for her impeccable taste in fashion. Katy's comic book series were well-liked for including fan-submitted fashion designs and fun reader activities.

Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Michael Grassi will script the pilot episode of the new musical dramedy, with Maggie Kiley as Director/Executive Producer.

"Katy Keene" will be produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. TV and Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Archie Comics CEO/Publisher Jon Goldwater serving as executive producers.

I saw something about that on Facebook but completely forgot about it. Thanks!

As far as the continuity stuff goes, we should all know by now that Archie doesn't seem to know what that is at times :P

Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on February 21, 2019, 12:21:40 pmHelp! POLICE! I've been robbed!! Somebody cleaned out my bank account! I used to be a multimillionaire, but now I'm Only A Poor Old Man. I lost all my karma, too. I'm flat busted. O, woe is me.
Easiest way to get all those credits back is to post and move as many credits as you can to the bank (click "Shop" in the menu above then click "Bank" in the menu above the shoutbox).

Karma doesn't exist anymore. It was completely removed from this version of the forum software.

An Archie Comics cult classic centuries in the making is returning to comic shops in June with the revival of JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE! The original '90s mini-series, a madcap sci-fi comedy in which Riverdale's champion layabout is tasked with saving all of human history, has long been one of Archie fandom's favorite storylines. In the revamped take, Jughead travels through time to right a food-related wrong that quickly leads to a battle for the timestream itself! Written by Sina Grace (Adventure Time, Iceman) with art by Eisner Award-winning artist Derek Charm (JUGHEAD, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl), colorist Matt Herms, and letterer Jack Morelli, the wild new mini-series will run for five issues starting June 12, and could continue beyond that if fan response demands it.

"JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE is a beloved concept that was screaming to be modernized, so once we read Sina's pitch, we knew we were in business," said Archie Comics Co-President Alex Segura. "He honors what came before but gives the idea a much-needed jolt. I can't think of a better artist to bring it to life than Derek, who had a stellar run on the main JUGHEAD title -- which kind of feels like a warmup for this!"

Just a brief topic to explain some of the new features that came with the upgrade...

You cannot see attachments on this board.

  • Improved notifications. The notifications feature has been completely overhauled. You can go to the Notifications section of your profile to configure things.
  • YouTube embed. You can now embed YouTube videos directly in your posts. Just click on the YouTube button and paste the ID of the video in the box.
  • Mentions. You can now mention users. Type "@" followed by the first few letters of their name until it pops up then hit enter or click on the name.
  • Improved attachments. There's a new interface and you can insert attachments directly in your post. After uploading the file just click in the post where you want the attachment to go and click "Insert". Attachments can now be uploaded prior to making the post.
  • Drafts. You can now save drafts of PMs and posts if you want to come back to them later. Drafts will be automatically saved every 30 seconds and are kept for up to 7 days. You can manage drafts from your profile.
  • Topic previews. When viewing the list of topics in a board, hover over the subject to see up to the first 256 characters of the last post in the topic.
  • Gravatar support. This makes it easy to use the same avatar on multiple sites among other things.

One more thing. You will need to go into your profile and fix your timezone. Click on your username in the top left corner then click "Look and Layout" and select the appropriate timezone from the list. The forum default is Eastern so if you're on Eastern time you can just select "(Forum Default)". Save the settings once you're done.

Site upgrade is complete. I'm still working on tweaking a few things but everything should be working as expected.

Note that Tapatalk is currently not supported. If/when they upgrade the plugin to support the new version of the forum software, I will add support for that back. However, the new version is mobile-friendly so you should be able to access it from your mobile browser just fine.

Also note that the links section is gone, as is the "Ultimate Profile" (profile comments, etc.) as neither of those addons support the new version. A customized theme will be returning at some point as well.
Announcements / Site Upgrade
February 16, 2019, 12:03:10 am
Just a heads up to everyone. I'm going to be upgrading the site tomorrow morning/afternoon. The upgrade will bring a new layout and quite a few new features, including native likes and notifications (the current systems are add-ons), improved attachment handling and more. It will also allow the site layout to work with mobile devices without having to use Tapatalk (though I will keep support for that as long as it works with the new version of the forum software).

Note that the upgrade will also result in us using the default theme for a while, but I will work on getting the current one updated as quickly as possible.

The site will be inaccessible for a while during the upgrade, but I don't anticipate this being for more than half an hour.
Feedback/Support / Re: Features
December 07, 2018, 11:49:38 pm
Based on the lack of feedback I'm going to assume that the shop and enhanced profiles aren't all that important...

I'm going to wait until after the holidays to upgrade the forum (and also to allow time for some of the bugs in the newer version to be worked out), but will keep everyone posted about the upcoming changes.
