Stay Warm with These Archie Comics Jughead Socks!

Hot Topic is now starting to carry Archie Comics merchandise in stores (after being online only for so long!), and I, for one, am over the moon. While I don't mind the aesthetics of the Riverdale merchandise, my one true love will always be the original comics. When I spotted these at a local store […]

Riverdale Revealed: The Archie Comics Panel At New York Comic Con 2017

The Archie panel at this year's New York Comic Con was nothing short of fun. An hour before the panel began, the line had spilled out into overflow. It's nice to see how popular Archie has become over the year, due largely in part with the Riverdale show. Panelists Frank Tieri, Dan Parent, Jamie Rotante, […]

Your Pal Archie #2 Review: What's Old Is New Again

Archie Comics seem to be going through a phase right now. The reboot comics seem to be going on hiatus, while the horror comics are (finally) picking up steam again. The digests are still going strong, and there's even a new "classic" series — Your Pal Archie by Ty Templeton and Dan Parent. Dan's updated classic […]

Archie Summer Annual #280 Review: Summertime Shenanigans!

"It's SUMMER FUN MONTH! with the new lead story "Beachwatch"! They're filming a new "Beachwatch" movie on the beach, and Archie is thrilled to have gotten a part in it! But will he become a star, or will something cause him to get burned?" Archie and summertime go hand in hand. Think about it: almost all […]

Archie's Coloring Book: How Would Betty Look As A Redhead?

Adult coloring books are all the rage. Companies are capitalizing on the trend by offering $10 coloring books that you could just as easily get for $1 at Target. Sure, the art is a little more detailed, but still. Admittedly, I do like the idea, and I can see how it would have a therapeutic […]

Archie's 75th Anniversary Digest #10 Review – Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?

Archie and Disney are my two favorite things in the whole world. So I am immediately enthralled by the Frozen spoof cover on Archie's 75th Anniversary Digest #10. The cover–by Dan Parent— reflects the interior, as the book is heavily dedicated to the Archie fairy tale spoofs. There's a little history to each classic fairy […]

A Busty, Beautiful Redhead! Die Kitty Die: Hollywood Or Bust! #1

Die Kitty Die, from former Archie artist/writer Fernando Ruiz and still-there Archie artist/writer Dan Parent, is brilliant. The story and characters parody various well-known characters and companies, and gives a fantastic tongue-in-cheek look at the state of the current comic industry. I enjoyed the first series immensely, and I'm glad Ruiz and Parent have released […]

More Classic Reprints: Betty And Veronica Comics Annual #252

Dan Parent does it again with another new classic Archie fairy tale story. This time it features Betty and Veronica in "Thumbelonica"! When Betty finds a miniature Veronica in her garden, Betty is initially elated. Unfortunately Veronica is well, herself, in any version (save for Riverdale) and Betty can't stand her. The story is cute […]

B&V Friends Comics Annual #253

  According to Dan Parent, Archie will be doing a number of fairly tale stories for the classic Archie line. In this issue of Betty and Veronica Friends: Comics Annual we have a re-telling of The Princess and the Pea called The Princess and the Pea-Brained. It's safe to assume Archie is the pea brain, as […]

Gothic Heroine: Riverdale Episode 5

  The more this show goes on, the more questions I have. And they all center around who the hell killed Jason Blossom. This episode takes his death as the focus again, showing that there's more than meets the eye with the Blossom family. For starters, there are some skeletons hidden deep in all of […]

Veronica Steals The Spotlight: Betty And Veronica Comics Double Digest 251

Veronica is many things. She's bossy, fun, a shopaholic, and she likes to make a grand entrance. In the opening story by Dan Parent called "Give My Regards to Brigitte", Brigitte is about to make her Broadway debut as Julie in Romeo and Juliet. All of her Riverdale friends are there to see her and […]
