When Archie Comics has embraced homosexuality, and had a gay wedding in its comics, it's time to find something new to be wrong about, fundies.

Oh, and this story is an alternate universe story, so they're not killing off the regular Archie.

There was a guy on the local news this morning trying to explain that to the anchors. "No no, Archie is fine, I mean regular Archie! This is Elseworlds Archie, if you will." The morning anchors did not pursue the subject.

Am I to understand there are actual adults who still read Archie? For fark's sake. No one cares, even a little bit. His gay friend should have taken the bullet. Martyr. Celebrations about bravery, etc.

So, so stupid.

Who's the gay friend?Jughead?

There Are at least 5 Archie universes... Regular Archie, Zombie Archie, Manga Archie, Archie marries Betty, Archie marries Veronica.

That's "Casper, Dead Son of a Soulless Plutocrat, Publicly Executed When the Revolution Came"

Didn't sell well, because that title was hard to make visible on the candy store's rotating wire rack.

Call me when they do a Sonic Universe crossover and Reggie knocks up Princess Sally.

Who shot Archie? Goldwater isn't spoiling the killer, only teasing it's a stalker who wanted to take Keller down.

It's Dilton.  He gives up on science and becomes a hardcore fundie.

The real question is, Veronica or Betty?

/Veronica!

Archie will always have a special place in my heart for giving me one of my favorite Simpsons moments-

Archie's been shot in the face by his gay friend so many times in the past, he never thought it would hurt when somebody else did.
 
2014-07-14 12:30:06 PM  
People still read Archie comics?

I had no idea that Archie was still around. I thought it went away about 25 years ago.
 
2014-07-14 12:49:09 PM  
I found Afterlife with Archie to be quite enjoyable.
 
2014-07-14 12:49:22 PM  
I would have pegged Dilton Doily for this sort of thing.

When they write these articles they REALLY need to clarify that this stuff is happening in the  Life With Archie  series, which is NOT the mainstream Archie series most people recognize, but a more 'adult' series in which there is continuity and all sorts of controversial stuff happening.

Regular "Archie" comics won't kill Archie. This is sort of like the Archie Comics' version of the Marvel Ultimate Universe.

And yes, I know you covered this is in the numero uno thread comment, but it still bugs me when the news media gets all "Ooh! Archie has a gay wedding!" in some lame attempt to upset older people who think of Archie as a 1950s Leave it to Beaver sort of wholesome good old comic.

It's time to find something new to be upset about.  Fundies just aren't cutting it anymore.  Oh, they're still wrong, and it's ok to be upset about them.  It's just played out.  We need a new group of idiots to do something offensively stupid that nobody's been offensively stupid about before.  Mix things up a bit.  I mean, sure we could watch Fox news all day and never go a minute without a face palm, but it's the same morons spewing the same racism, same climate change denial, same misogyny.  Whatever.  New idiots are born every day- why can't some of them get together and piss me off with something I've never been outraged about before?  I demand novelty in my irrational anger, damnit!

loki see loki do: Waitaminute...Jughead isn't gay?


Nope. Just cliche.

Agreed.  Farking Dilton.
