This article surprised me. Mostly because they're introducing a new character.
My money would have been on Jughead coming out of the closet. Although come to think of it, I probably wasn't the only kid out there hoping for Betty and Veronica to hook up.
Ah, simpler times. Have a great weekend, everyone!
Archie and the Gang kind of look like Zach and the Saved By the Bell Gang.......Gay character and all.ReplyDelete
I think it's the other way around!ReplyDelete
Poor Jughead. Now he'll have to fend off the advances of Kevin too.ReplyDelete
I'll bet readership would have skyrocketed if it was Betty or Veronica announced as gay.
oops. talk about a "slip of the tongue"...or was it?ReplyDelete
My money was always on Reggie coming out- he was always too pretty and worried about clothesReplyDelete
As if I even knew that gay people existed then.ReplyDelete
Wait, they still have Archie comics? Nice that they are making them up-to-date, if such a thing is possible. It's Archie comics!ReplyDelete
I didn't know they still made Archie comics either! I guess Veronica will have to come forward as being Hep C + to keep it really current.ReplyDelete
But Veronica just recently married Archie, much to Betty's dismay. Or did that all turn out to be a Dallas style dream season?ReplyDelete
graygrrrl, good point. I think you're right about Reggie. But jughead is the one wearing the "chick magnet" shirt, so my thought was he's overcompensating.ReplyDelete
Lickety, I didn't either...but we did find porn mags in the wood sometimes that showed girl/girl. We never put two and two together and realized it could also hold true for men.
Blissed, yeah I was surprised too.
Alli, I had the same thought. I figure it won't be long until someone's having an abortion or is addicted to meth.
Buck, you know much more about the current state of affairs in Riverdale than I do. I'm glad Archie ended up with Veronica. She was always the hotter one.
What's next, Veronica pole dancing at The Stag Club wearing a red wig?ReplyDelete
Why is it that only Jughead has a nose that looks like a weener. I ain't sayin nothin, but it strikes me as an odd anatomical feature.ReplyDelete
Love your blog, JV - even though it makes me feel very jealous and inadequate as a writer.
I like the idea of a gay comic book character in Archie, but think that they should go all out and have racist skinheads, crack whores, white slavers and Muslim terrorists.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I would buy that! LOL!
I like how they say Archie always tries to be "inclusive" but you never see fat girls that aren't joke-characters or disabled people that don't provide "aren't you lucky to not be disabled" lessons (other than the PSAs from the Cerebral Palsy Association).ReplyDelete
