    Wait, what’s the matter with catnip?

  2. This was an odd, but interesting story. I have a mailorder subscription to Archie and sometimes I wonder what the mail lady must think when she sees the covers. This is one of those times.

      Well the issue in question shouldn’t faze her at all since… you know, she’s a mail lady.

    Who would have thought that Archie would be the more forward-thinking publisher?

    Still deplorable how they treated Dan DeCarlo, but good for them with how they’ve been creating new characters with resonance. As opposed to the big two just going for shock value.

      We’re now at the third generation of the Archie ownership family, Jeremiah, and I wouldn’t hold the current Goldwater and Silberkleit kids to their elders’ sins. Given everybody’s situation and corporate nonsense and our pathetically antiquated copyright laws, I don’t know how you can squeeze that toothpaste back into the tube.

      These folks are trying hard, and they’re accomplishing a lot. Including EIC Vic Gorelick, who’s been guiding the ship of Archie through editorial waters since Reggie crawled out of the sea.

  4. As the father of a six year old girl, I’m rediscovering Archie and loving the way the stories have reflected our world. You put your finger on it — where they once who borrow skate boards or fade hairstyles to reflect the times, they are now taking steps to tell stories about all of us. Even when they jump on trends — Twilight, anyone? — they do it with zest and humor: Betty the Vampire Slayer vs. Vamperonica!

    Gotta go pick this one up! (And I love ARCHIE, as does my niece.)
