  • Vegan Jughead: Ms. Grundy would have been a total surprise but it turned out she wasn't really Ms. Grundy so I can let that go.  Killing Moose after barely seeing him last year and Midge after she was in literally one episode (and barely in it, at that) seems ridiculous.

  • DeCarlo Rules: For a character franchise that's been running for 75+ years, ARCHIE really has a pretty small cast of regulars. Apart from the core 5 and the other 6 already mentioned, there's Cheryl & Jason and Kevin... and (filed under "extended supporting players") the teachers and parents. That's pretty much it. 14 teen characters and their parents & teachers. Sabrina and Josie and their supporting casts coexist in Riverdale, but they're really their own separate franchises. If your murder victims turn out to be Jinx Malloy and Cricket O'Dell, there's not much drama in it, beyond a shrug.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Why Moose and Midge? Good question... let me know if you can think of any other ongoing characters who are more expendable, but still well-known. I guess the other likely candidates would be Dilton and Ethel, or Chuck and Nancy. I guess you could come up with a short list of other names, but are they really that well-known? Ms. Grundy was a total surprise!

  • BettyReggie: Midtown Comics has the new January 2018 Comics. I preordered mine.
    October 20, 2017, 05:17:44 PM
  • CAPalace: Seriously though why are Moose and Midge like one of the first people to die whenever they are in the horror stories line and now Riverdale lol
    October 20, 2017, 12:36:49 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: I recently watched Geek House's reaction to the episode. They're very amateur. They often leave in false starts and farting around before the actual intro. Joey often struggles with the episode title, like he can't just look it up before they start recording. Joey has to announce that he's putting the video into full screen and then does a countdown. Cut all of that stuff out! In the new review, he and his wife didn't react at all to Moose and Midge being killed. It soon became apparent that they didn't even know it was Moose and Midge! Joey referred to them as the "drug addicts".

  • Vegan Jughead: Oh, wow, that sucks.
    October 20, 2017, 09:21:57 AM
  • JonInIowaCity: I'm not saying that they're dead, but they're not listed as appearing in any future episodes in IMBD, while other minor characters are.
    October 20, 2017, 08:53:10 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: I don't think Moose and Midge are dead.  I hope not.  It's one thing to kill Jason Blossom.  Killing two characters who have been around for 68 years is something else entirely.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Or a short black actress with punky hair.  ;D
    October 19, 2017, 12:21:11 PM
  • JonInIowaCity: Looks like each episode of season 2 will end with a murder.
    October 18, 2017, 09:55:30 PM

    October 17, 2017, 09:45:36 PM

Hello, Citizens of Riverdale!
« on: July 23, 2017, 02:07:47 PM »
Hi everyone! I'm an 18 year old guy from Dallas, TX! I've visited this website several times over the years (I'm 18), but finally decided to make an account. I first stumbled upon Archie around 7 years ago when my mom brought a box filled with them home that she found by the side of the road, and I've been hooked ever since! Yesterday I just finished Riverdale Season 1, which I enjoyed but had some problems with (still going to see season 2 though!)

General info:
My favorite comics are the Frank Doyle/Harry Lucey ones hands down, but Samm Schwartz isn't far behind.
I do read the "New Riverdale" comics, but feel that the reason Archie is so good is because of the comedy. Thus I think that dramatic events such as Over the Edge would have more of an impact if the new Archie was more lighthearted, rather than mostly serious.

Enjoyed Riverdale but thought the killer was disappointing. Also - I really believe that an "Archie's Weird Mysteries" version of Riverdale could work super well if they play their cards right and slowly made the series supernatural. They could introduce Sabrina, and then have some Weird Mysteries throwback episodes if they wanted to, which I would love!

That's about all for me! Can't wait to add to some of these threads!

Oh, and Jughead is the best character of course!

Well, he's the best male character. Hands down. Not even close. I think I'd rate the Boldman/Lindsey version as #1, with a tie for 2nd place between Samm Schwartz and Fernando Ruiz. All three versions are slightly different characters. Dan Parent's version would rate higher probably, if he'd done more Jughead solo stories, but I haven't seen all that many crop up. I don't know what I'm going to do now that JUGHEAD & ARCHIE digest is cancelled. Probably have to start buying more back issues, if I can find them.

What kind of monster tosses a box of Archie Comics on the side of the road?

It's crazy, I know! There were like 20-30 digests in the box, and they decided to just throw them all away!

I'm trying to visualize some sort of situation where they were bungee'd to some roof or trunk rack on a car (or maybe a motorcycle or scooter?), but even that seems pretty unlikely...

Yeah, my guess was that it was a "parents threw it out after the kids grew up" kind of situation, but who knows.

I guess when you said "found by the side of the road" I was visualizing something like... by the side of the road out in the middle of nowhere. I guess if the road was in front of a house, and the curb is where you'd put out garbage for pickup, then the "parents threw them out" theory makes the most sense.

Yeah it wasn't as strange as finding them abandoned in a field or something... Now that would be really weird!

Well, Texas is really big. So in my imagination, at least, that includes a lot of miles of roads that don't run past the front lawns of houses, where boxes could fall off the back of pickup trucks or something like that.

Point taken. I've never been to Dallas, and so I don't have much of a mental image of that city, particularly what a typical residential area looks like. Just what I tend to see on TV shows, which is like a helicopter flyover of the downtown area.

Haha yeah it's a fairly boring city, so by not visiting you're not missing out on much
