As a gay guy in an interracial relationship, I'm getting a kick out of this.

I also have a hard time believing they can sell enough of these to make money. Maybe they made an incredible deal with the folks that print them. Another possibility is that (ala Louis CK), there is a crazy philanthropist bankrolling it for the lulz.

Nice. If Archie comics was going to have a homosexual character, it's only fair that Betty and Veronica get bi-curious.

I always suspected it was Jughead who was gay. Oh well, go figure.

Jughead got sexual satisfaction by consuming massive piles of cheeseburgers.

"A Gay Archie character? You see this is what's wrong with America today, Edith. They gotta ruin everything. Sure there was always a lot of cock slapping and ass grabbing going on in the Archie comic books but it was decent wholesome All-American heterosexual cock slapping and ass grabbing. This gay marriage stuff is for the birds, Edith."

But Melissa Joan Hart is two years older than me, right? And I grew up fapping to that show well before she or I was of age, right? So it's not wrong to still fap to that show since it'd be more like nostalgia than pedoish, right? right? I'm not wrong about this guys? Am I? Hello?

No, sorry, my bad. What I meant was that he needed to shut up because they meant this:

Is hotter than this:

Although, upon reflection, my Pedobear comment WAS out of place. I was thinking of another Archie Comics withc, whose name escapes me.

That's just because Reggie was always manipulating him into blowjobs.

Who WASN'T Reggie manipulating into blowjobs? He was more...omnisexual than anything else.

Archie Comics actually sell on newsstands, unlike the sad, cheeto-stained superhero comics.

So, Archie comics have a much wider possible audience than anything with a cape does.

"Riverdale, Archie and the gang are set in high school, and we ran a risk, unless we reflect what's going on with kids today in the real world, of becoming irrelevant," said Goldwater, the son of Archie creator John L. Goldwater.

Where's the issue with Jughead on meth?

Things like this take time. They're still ramping up to revealing that he's a total pot head. I mean really, who eats that damn much unless they're on pot? And you know it's a gateway drug, so after a while they'll move him on to more hardcore substances and have him swirl the drain a while until he reaches bottom and is shown blowing Weatherby for meth money.

Nope. Not us. Must be them Inuits.


Canadians accounted for 70-75% of the foreign market for Archie comics according to something I read some time ago. Most of them seem to be sold in supermarket checkout lanes.

Archie comics appeal to the kind of people who complain about sex and violence in television. In other words, the overseas target demographic seems to be Canadian Flanders and the boys. Well, maybe the girls. I expect that most of the readers are women and pre-teen girls--and gays.

A gay marriage in Archie may signal that Evangelical (as opposed to Fundamentalist) Christians are continuing to grow to accept gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgendered people and everything that was fashionable about 25 years ago.

When I was a kid Archie still drove a 1920s jalopy and dressed like a teenager in 1930s Iowa. But in the 1970s or thereabouts, he began slowly to catch up to the square middle western teenagers. Nowadays the Riverdale kids even have cellphones and know non-white gay guys.

In the local comic stores, the Archie comics are up front where the parents bringing in their children can get them without walking past all the underwear perverts and weird young adult stuff.
