This week, I'm reviewing a "Betty's Diary" story from 1988, "In Search of Change".

Also, I reorganized the Reviews page. They're now listed three different ways: by review publication date, by category (radio, a certain TV series, or comics), and by story publication order.

This week, I'm reviewing a comic book story, "A Date With a Dummy", from Archie Comics Digest Magazine, No. 102 (June, 1990).

This was my first Archie comic, and so this was my first Archie story.

Fan Fiction / Betty and Cheryl
September 30, 2016, 08:09:51 pm
I've decided to start writing Archie fanfic again. This isn't related to my previous Betty fanfics. I've decided to reimagine the characters for the modern era and follow them through high school, from the beginning of freshman year through graduation. The series should be 45 chapters long, and it will progress in "real time", meaning, at the end of each month, a new chapter covering that month will go up.

I'm focusing primarily on Betty, Cheryl, and Veronica (Cheryl moreso than Veronica as the series goes on). I have to warn you that it's a mature series with cursing, sex, and general political incorrectness. Enjoy!

Dilton wasn't on the show. As for whether Dilton and Eugene interacted in the comics or not, you'd have to track down the New Archies comics and read them. It wouldn't surprise me if they included Dilton. Alter all, Cheryl appeared in the Archie's Weird Mysteries comic, even though she never appeared on the show.

I just reviewed Cheryl's first two comic appearances. There's also now a handy Reviews page on the blog with links to all of the reviews.

There are a couple of affordable copies available at Mycomicshop.com - $3 in vg+ and $3.70 in fine- - in case you are interested.

Ooh, I'll look into that. Thanks! :)
Thanks. Comics.org doesn't have that issue indexed (and it calls it an October issue, despite the cover clearly saying November).
Story Help / Where was "Color Coded" originally printed?
September 20, 2016, 05:52:37 pm
The story, "Color Coded", was my first Cheryl story, but I read it as a reprint in my first Archie digest in 1990. The story was also reprinted in one of the later "Cheryl Blossom Special" issues (albeit in slightly censored form) as a flashback. But where did the story first appear?
