  • OrangeJuiceJones-Games reply My mom got me started on Archie, beginning with "Little Archie". I remember there was this made for TV movie about Archie that I was set to tape back in the day but forgot all about it. Now its on my list of older movies to find/buy. Also loved the "Life with Archie" series, and the rebooted version.
  • NerdSync reply Whoa, hey! Thanks for all the views and upvotes, everyone!
  • Roamancing reply Fascinating stuff. I grew up on the Archie comics and am now a fan of Riverdale. Love learning the backstory to Archie.
  • CryptoAndMarkets reply God I hope the Nancy Silverkleit rumours are true. I sense a documentary coming lol
  • Fighting_Zenith reply Glad that I, Mark Evanier, and John K aren't the only people who know that Archie comics started out as Pep Comics. By the way, It almost seems like a lot of Manga artists were influenced by Harry Lucey, who John K considers Archie's best draftsman. Dal McKennon, best known for voicing Gumby, also did Archie's original voice.

  • madel_schmadel reply The 1950s always seemed to be an important period in the saga of the comic, but that might just be my perception as a casual (child) observer reading these comics in the early 80s. 50s themes were certainly pretty heavily present, which was part of the charm. On another train of thought, I don't think the suggestion that earlier more innocent times were "manufactured" as much as our cynical society today tends to see malfeasance behind every bush (and of course it's politically useful for the far left to pretend everyone's as despotic and corrupt as they are).
  • [ – ] FancyTeeth reply PENIS!
  • ImpeccablyCurious reply In Riverdale, I think it's kinda weird that "Bughead" is the most popular ship, when to me, it seems absolutely forced
  • vanners reply Good to see you on Vid me Scott!
