We all know that Jason Blossom is dead in "Riverdale." He disappeared on July 4th in an effort to escape his family with his pregnant girlfriend, Polly Cooper. He was found 2-3 months later in the lake with a bullet in his head.


I recently heard that there will be a second death in season one of "Riverdale." Here's your chance to speculate...


Who do you think will be the second murder victim and why?

All About Archie / First Appearance of Little Kevin?
April 08, 2017, 03:15:37 pm
I was just reading the LITTLE ARCHIE AND HIS PALS one-shot comic book and noticed Kevin Keller in it.


So was this the first appearance of Little Kevin in Archie Comics?

The big news today is that "at least one major Riverdale resident" is going to be killed off in Archie #20 and the identity of that character will be revealed in Archie #21.

Archie #20 will feature a drag race between Archie and Reggie on Dead Man's Curve. In #21, the people of Riverdale will learn that someone will die in that drag race!!

Will it be Archie Andrews? Maybe Kevin Keller wanders onto the street and Archie jumps out his own vehicle to save his friend from death!!

Will it be Reggie Mantle? Maybe Riverdale's resident bad-boy will swerve to avoid Hot Dog or Vader and hit a tree!!

Or maybe one of them will hit another Riverdale regular!! Moose... Midge... Dilton... Jason... Cheryl... Jellybean... Mr. Weatherbee... Ms. Grundy... Mr. or Mrs. Andrews...

Who do you think will die in this upcoming storyline?

Personally, I think it would be more of a game-changer in multiple ways if one of the boys lost a parent (or both) as a result of their drag race.

I was thinking about the "Sabrina" sitcom from the 90s last night and got to thinking about the need for a new sitcom. NOT a new teen drama or horror movie or even a cartoon. We need a new live-action, half-hour sitcom based off one of our favorite Archie Comics characters!

So I need you to vote! Which Archie Comics concept should be launched as a sitcom?

Share your thoughts below!

BTW, Sabrina is excluded from the competition(!!).

Here's something a little different that came to mind when I was reading the latest issue of "Scooby Apocalypse." Who's your favorite Scooby-Doo wingman? I'm not talking about the people. I'm all about the dogs here!

"The Advocate" announced today that "Life With Kevin" will premiere in June as a digital series. It will feature story and art by Dan Parent, with inks by J. Bone:
QuoteKevin Keller burst onto the comic book scene back in 2010 in Archie Comics' Veronica number 202. Since he was the first gay character in the storied history of Archie Comics, Kevin's first appearance made worldwide headlines, and his explosive popularity propelled him into his own mini-series followed by a long-running solo series. Though he's been featured as a supportive player in the recently rebooted Archie flagship comic title, Kevin will once again take center stage starring in his own comic book -- this time as a special digital series, Life With Kevin, debuting in June.
The Advocate sat down with Kevin's creator, writer-artist Dan Parent, to find out what's Kevin's been up to and where he's going.
The Advocate: How does it feel to have Kevin Keller back in his own solo book again?
Dan Parent: It feels great ... he's been missing for too long, but of course, I'm biased.
What can you tell us about Life With Kevin?
The new series explores Kevin's life after high school and college, as he enters the real world. And we can explore all the career and romantic challenges that he has an adult.
Will we see Kevin's husband from Life With Archie, which took place in an alternate reality?
Not yet, but who knows down the line?
It appears Kevin has a new supporting cast. What can you tell us about them?
We have a couple new potential boyfriends for Kevin, as you can see, plus we have Shrill, who has been seen in the regular pages of Archie before. And of course there's Veronica, the only major Archie character to appear in this series. As Kevin's BFF, she's a natural in this storyline.
Would you call this a more "mature" series than Kevin's previous comic book?
It's more mature since we can deal with more serious subject matter, but the book is a comedy book first, and I want humor to be the most important element.
As a straight writer-artist, Dan, does it help to have out inker J. Bone on the book? Does he offer any insights or points as needed?
Well, I consider myself more "fluid" than straight. J. Bone is so pivotal to the book, because he draws sexy characters so well -- both men and women -- and gets who Kevin is. And his art and inking have that whimsical style that is so much fun.

Why digital and not print?
Digital is more instant and easier to produce. And the digital art can easily be collected later to print. My goal is definitely a print collection at some point. I'm still old school and like to hold a book in my hand.
The comic takes place in New York. Can we expect lots of romance? Adventure?
As far as romance, there will be lots of that. Adventure? Well, living in NYC can be an adventure, so I'll say yes.

I'm excited. So if you like Dan Parent story and artwork, as well as classic Archie stories, this is the book to get!  :D

All About Archie / Cheryl Blossom
April 08, 2016, 09:26:11 am
I was thinking. Outside of Sabrina and the Pussycats, we haven't seen a relaunched version of Cheryl Blossom. I think most of the others have shown up by now -- even only in cameo.

What do you think a relaunched version of Cheryl Blossom would be like?
