It'd Be Funny, If It Wasn't Sad
You know how, from time to time, I make mention of how comics fans hate change, even the illusion of it, even the most superficial of changes?
Comic fans, most of whom probably haven't even read an Archie comic since their age was in the single digits, go a bit weird about it.
IS NOTHING SACRED??
now the question is will they take the next step and have the gang in real teenage situations like teen pregnancy, drugs, divorced parents, etc. it doesnt have to be serious all the time, it could be funny in an OC kind of way
Now, that's the kind of reasoned discourse I expect from comic fans!
I have two daughters, one who will be reading soon (she already has a dozen superheroes down cold - Dad's been working O.T.!) They will NEVER see this atrocity. Good God, what goes through people's heads?
Yes, because God forbid your kids like something you don't...
Q: How do we know Big Moose is a virgin? A: If he wasn't, Midge would have a pair of bowed legs the likes of which haven't been seen since the Fleisher Brothers and Ub Iwerks were doing cartoons!
So...Moose is a comic fan?
Is it just me, or does Veronica look like a bull dyke on at the example page?
Y'know, I could have made a comment about the acceptance of casual homophobia amongst comic fans in response to this but, nah, too easy.
I almost thought That Archie comics would be the last place that I would find Changes like this, but now that it about to occur I'm scared. I always thought that Archie's comics were scaraed cows of comics, never changing the look of the characters but always kept with the current times. TO see the comics like this may be step forward into trying to gain new readers by looking like a current comic book series, but it also a mistake due to the loyal fans of the old Archie style. I'll give this a chance, althought it may seem a bit creepy at first but maybe it a sign that changes. Ones that may have to be made in order for a business to continue, but the scarfices made for the changes may live on forever in the minds of those responsible.
It's...it's just a change in art style, man! Suck it up!
