One of the rare times Archie grew a backbone against Ronica... :2funny:

Good story, PTF, but I noticed this:

"(Betty is leaning her head on a bashful Archie's shoulder as a fuming Veronica places Jughead back down as Jughead pats her on her head.)"

How can Jughead be placed down by Ronica while he's being patted on the head by himself? That's quite a trick! :)

Really nice story, PTF! Jughead did the right thing, and he'll still get what he wants out of it!  :2funny:

I like your post because I respect your principles, DR. I'll give the new ones a shot for awhile because of the curiosity factor. I DO find it interesting that you'd get a least a copy of the new B & V, and not either of the new Archie or Jughead titles. Is that an influence out of your love for DeCarlo's work, since he was the main B & V artist? :)


I think you misunderstood what I was saying, SAGG. I will not support any of the reboot titles in the financial sense by purchasing them. I expect I will borrow a copy of the rebooted B&V (which cover variant is irrelevant) only for the purpose of satisfying my curiosity, the same as I did with the rebooted ARCHIE and JUGHEAD, which I also borrowed to read. If I can't borrow it, I won't buy it. Buying any of them would be like voting with my wallet that ACP should continue making comics in that vein, and any dollar spent on the reboot is a vote against ACP spending the company's money to give work to the classic Archie artists instead.

It's futile to support the concept of an Archie reboot in principle, regardless of how it relates to the classic Archie artists getting work with the company, and here's why: the reboot is entirely dependent for its success on courting the comic shop audience - an audience that is notoriously fickle, and furthermore an audience that has demonstrated NO love for the Archie characters in the past. Any temporary sales that ACP can manage to glean from that audience are based strictly on the novelty of the concept of putting "big name creators" to work on the Archie characters, and ACP can't possibly keep the novelty fresh enough for that audience to stick with the company's product. Look at how DC Comics alienated its faithful longtime readers with a reboot of its universe in 2011. Five years later, that company is in worse shape than it was prior to the reboot, and it's time for yet another "DC Rebirth". Now they're looking to REincorporate some of the very things they trashed as worthless in the 2011 reboot, but now it's five years later, and most of the hardcore DC addicts that they lost have moved on to other things. Novelty value doesn't last, and when the "NEW" wears off, the audience dissipates like smoke.
Ah, now I see. I apologize for assuming something else, DR...

HILARIOUS!  :2funny: PTF, this is your best story yet! Too bad Mr. Lodge is too cheap to go out and dine, though. Now when I think about it, AC never really explored the Trula - Ethel rivalry, did they?   ???

I will eventually read it on digital, but I won't purchase a copy of any of them.


Just as I did with the rebooted ARCHIE and JUGHEAD, I will borrow a copy just to satisfy my curiosity. If that were not an option for me, I would just pass on it entirely, without a bit of remorse. I don't feel like the reboot is something I can cast a financial vote for, in principle. I expect it to fail, if not immediately, then eventually. I want it to fail, and as quickly as possible. If the reboot merely represented an attempt to diversify Archie as a product, I'd feel differently, but since it seems absolutely clear that it's not meant as a mere additional option, but as an intended replacement for traditional-style Archie, I'm forced to view this as an "us vs. them" situation. If the inevitable end result of that is no new stories, then I guess I'll have to settle for reprints (or possibly... back issues). On the other hand, any new material they're going to produce in the traditional style is something I will support and cast my financial vote for. I am putting my money where my mouth is, and sending ACP a clear message in the only way that's going to count, in the pocketbook.

Brutal honesty is my policy. The rebooted titles are not an acceptable substitute for the product that I REALLY want to buy from ACP; not even "better than nothing".

Not sure where they're coming from. Probably cached versions of things.

I'm still working on trying to get that data back too. I'm in the process of downloading the disk image from my old host (which, at 100GB in size, is taking a while), and a friend is going to look at it and see if he can fix it so we can get the data.

If by any chance I'm able to get the data back I'll see about merging it in with the new data as well (which is a royal pain but still possible).
Fingers crossed! :)
