A man falls to his death while stealing Mayan artifacts and taking Veronica hostage, and it STILL ends with a Jughead food joke. Best 65 cents I ever spent.
We are really sorry to hear about Comics Alliance. Personally, it was my favorite comic related blog, and it deserved every Eisner that it won. Can’t wait to see where the talented staff will be writing next.
It was Chris Sims’ writings on Archie Comics that helped me realize the legitimacy of them, and that they have merits that deserve to be looked at by the “serious” comic fans. So, yeah, I feel for all of you over there.
And because this is an Archie blog, here are my favorite Archie articles from Comics Alliance:
Yes, these are panels from one of the craziest Archies I’ve ever read.
Footage of aliens from another dimension inspires a Pokemon-like show, card and video game series. The aliens see Archie and the gang playing Pokemon and believe they are mocking the aliens’ culture. They abduct our protagonists and make them compete against each other. This is a four issue story arc.
When people ask you why an adult would read Archie comics, just direct them to this.
"Just that it’s risky, for sure—we all know that—but everyone at Archie, from Jon Goldwater on down, is 100% committed to putting out a special, high-class, horror project. That is moody, and weird, and eerie, and scary. It will be fun, no doubt about that—the way early Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson movies are fun—for instance, the love-triangle will be very much in evidence, even across the grave—but things are about to be get serious in Riverdale, y’all."
