  • DeCarlo Rules: I thought the ad money was only a piece of the webcomics big picture, with the other pieces being commission work and print collections of past webcomics, and word-of-mouth that leads to paying assignments from established publishers. It seems like Gisele just has too much talent to stay out of the game for long, and if nothing else, minus the expenses of hosting and time spent creating webcomics, she ought to be able to make a living just doing covers (which pay better than interior pages), if nothing else.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I hope they continue reprinting those Jughead stories from the early 2nd series issues (late 1980s) in World of Archie digest. Maybe not, because that was a special Time Police section, but I can always hope. Loverboy Jughead, Skatepunk Jughead, Snax Headjug. The weirder the better.
    November 06, 2017, 09:29:09 AM
  • Jabroniville: The next issue was a pretty great one- Jughead swears off girls by writing songs about how awful women are, which makes the girls at the shows fall in LOVE with him. Eventually, Betty & Ronnie refuse to play another sexist number, and he's finally consoled by ETHEL of all people (who really got the short end of the stick with the Debbie/Joani arc).
    November 06, 2017, 03:58:39 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: The way that I figure it is that January was a Time Marshall, and Jughead was a mere Deputy, so he probably didn't have the clearance level or Need To Know status for her to tell his about the multiverse. Although he could presumably have figured it out on his own, based on some of the Time Police missions he was involved in.

All About Archie / Riverdale, season 2, episodes 5-6
« on: November 16, 2017, 08:17:46 PM »
Here are some random thoughts on the episodes:

Pussycat beatdown was awesome!

Madelaine Petsch is the best actor on this series, and Cheryl Blossom is the best character ever!

Cheryl ends up doing Betty a solid, even though her "dear cousin" had originally come to her house under the pretext of concern for her well-being (which Cheryl saw through).

The scenes between Cheryl and her mom were very good. In particular, the first one was heartbreaking. Sad Cheryl makes me cry.

Yay for Cheryl in short shorts. More, please.

Cheryl being high on Jingle Jangle was pretty funny.

So Veronica saves Cheryl from being raped, and Cheryl helps Betty out with some snooping. I think these three ladies are gonna become besties.

they have to pay staff to do nothing for hours on weekends

Huh?! Explain this, please.
It's simple:

Malls enforce the hours that businesses have to stay open.

Certain times of the day are infamously slow in malls, such as weekends after 6pm or so, some holidays, early mornings, etc. When I worked in a mall, Saturday after six was just DEAD- you only get business during the day.

Therefore, a business that has to stay open from 9 to 9 every single day has to pay staff to fill those twelve hours, even if a bunch of those hours aren't busy at all- the employees are thus drawn really thin for the times when it IS busy, and the stores basically blow money, because they're paying someone $/hour to sit around while no sales are made. My mom still works in a mall, and says there are days when you could roll a bowling ball down the halls and hit nobody. Yet every place is open.

I mean, yay, it's more hours for people who might need it, but it's a waste. Many business owners I know refuse to move in to malls directly because of this practice- paying staff for times when nobody's shopping is dumb.

Maybe it's different in Canada. Here, at a mall around an hour from my house, the food court has a Chick-fil-A, which refuses to open on Sundays. Any time that my mom and I visit that mall on a Sunday, that restaurant is closed, but everything else is open. That leads me to believe individual businesses can set their own hours.

Heck, now that I think about it, the Kmart that I used to work at (which is now closed) went through hour changes at one point, and I've seen other businesses in the mall post hours of operation signs.

I forgot to mention it before, but chapter 12, "Happy Birthday, Cheryl" (occurring in August), is up. This one's definitely NSFW.

Update: Sears has shut down all of its stores in Canada. That was fast- they'd closed down "select stores" in Canada earlier in the year, and have just decided to close up shop right before Christmas! Every store is a madhouse, and it's proving to be a disaster for Canadian malls, because most of them had JUST figured out what they're doing with all their abandoned Target locations! One of the malls it town had just renovated their old Target to have different store-space (converting a department store into a hallways with stores in it), and the West Edmonton Mall store is only NOW about to be filled with a few different things.

People are thinking the malls are gonna have to allow gyms to move in in order to survive, now.

I think malls are just gonna die out, period. They're such an outdated concept. The mall in my county has seen all four of its anchor stores close (including, yes, Sears and the Kmart that I used to work at) and only one take its place. If it wasn't for the movie theater, it'd probably be in much worse shape. There was even mold in the old JC Penney location, and it had spread throughout the mall, because various employees had complained of illness.

Eddie Lampert, the billionare hedge fund manager that orchestrated the merger of Sears and Kmart over a decade ago and now serves as its CEO (because no one else wanted the job), loaned the company $200,000,000 from one of his other companies in order to get it through the holiday shopping season. That loan comes due in April. Aaaaaand...they've already burned through it:

Here's a new list of store closings:

Just some random thoughts:

Betty actually likes Nancy Drew? That's a bit of an eyeroll moment, but it totally fits the version of the character that they're going with. Really, the whole bland/vanilla appearance that they put on Betty in this series is a bit too on the nose. I mean...she literally drinks "old-fashioned vanilla" milkshakes.

How can Cheryl be in three scenes but not have any lines? That, like, breaks the rules of awesomeness.

Pay attention in the town hall scene. When Fred's speaking, Hiram and Hermione are literally the only two people not looking at him. Wonder if that means anything.

I loved the Cheryl moments. I didn't see this as getting back at Betty so much as stirring shit up. She actually did both Betty and Kevin a favor by getting this out in the open, even if that wasn't her intent. And it did take guts for Cheryl to go out with Betty into the woods.

All About Archie / Riverdale, season 2, episodes 1-2 (spoilers)
« on: October 18, 2017, 09:12:38 PM »
I figured I'd make a combined thread for both episodes, since there wasn't one for episode 1 last week.

RIP, Ms. Grundy, Moose, and Midge. :(

So Ms. Grundy's ex-husband isn't the Black Hood. Who is?

Betty kept a copy of the video of Clifford killing Jason. And she uses it to blackmail Cheryl, threatening to post it. Total bitch move. But Cheryl seems to have gained respect for Betty (in an odd sort of way).

Veronica's way of cheering up Archie: hawt, naked shower sex.

Still getting used to the new Reggie.

Cheryl lies on the witness stand about Clifford threatening F.P., even though, coincidentally, that's exactly what happened.

Hiram and Hermione can't be trusted.

Yay for Cheryl filling in as a Pussycat. That rooftop performance was cute.

Sweet Goddess, Cheryl is hot!

Way late, I know. Sorry. I decided to change things up and review the vampire trilogy of "Archie's Weird Mysteries" for the rest of the month to keep the Halloween theme going. First up is "Scarlet Night".

After Halloween, the reviews will alternate between TV and comic to give me more time to do other things.
