Or – “The Part Of Regina Mantle Will Be Played By Kim Kardashian.”
Archie Comics has been at the forefront of comic culture lately, and have probably been discussed more in the past 5 years than in the previous 20. Given that they’re keeping the Archie tradition while embracing diversity and political discourse, as well as guest-starring Gene Simmons, you have to appreciate what they’re up to. And when Sabrina’s involved, anything can happen, which is awesome in so many ways. In this issue, the genders of our cast get magically swapped and things get weird… Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Archie Comics sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Archie #636 that arrives in stores August 22, 2012.
A recent discussion with Adriana (of Critical Hit and Super Future Friends infamy) led to an in-depth analysis of character roles, and a comparison of the Critical Hit cast to the cartoon Archie Gang. (Ket=Reggie, Torq=Jughead, and Trelle=Betty, by the way.) Many people have compared the relative merits of young Ms. Cooper versus Veronica Lodge, but the recent X-Men revelations raised another question for me…
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “Reginald”) wants you to know that you are it’s candy girl, asking: Is it weird or it is perfect that Archie Comics did a same-sex wedding first?
Or – “This Cover Has The Makeup On All The Wrong People…”
Veronica should have the Demon makeup, as she is the one with the hair to carry it off. (Plus, I think many people will agree that she would be the most interesting one to carry off Gene Simmons’ trademark tongue thing.)
Jughead should be Ace Frehley, the ethereal Celestial spaceman who could clearly eat as many hamburgers as he wanted.
Betty should be the upbeat, front-and-center Starchild (albeit one with a slightly modified upper body leotard.)
And, finally, Archie should be the Catman, both much maligned figures with bad hair.
Next issue, Reggie, Moose, Dilton and Big Ethel should dress up as GWAR.
Archie Comics sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Life with Archie #17 that arrives in stores today.
Or – “I Like To Think This Crosses Over With The Old KISS Series…”
There’s something awesome and iconic about the world of Riverdale and Archie Comics. They’ve successfully persevered through nearly eight decades of progress, changing with the times while maintaining the core of their portrayals. I’m just worried that The Demon is going to steal BOTH Betty and ‘Ronnie from Arch.
(Hey, if anybody can do it, Gene Simmons can… Just ask Lois Griffin.)
Archie Comics sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Archie #627 that arrives in stores this week (November 30, 2011).
Archie and friends are about to step out to the Riverdale Comic-Con, and they’re all cosplaying their favorite characters.
It’s all part of a story by former DC publicity guru Alex Segura (now publicity guru at Archie Comics), that has the kids competing in a costume contest, checking out artist alley, and more.

The moment that will rock Riverdale.
When Jughead #200 arrives, it will not only feature a story by Tom Root, but will feature the company’s first ever variant cover.
â€œSomething Ventured, Something Gainedâ€ takes Riverdale Highâ€™s fabled teens on their wildest ride ever, as Jughead trades his bodyâ€™s metabolism to a witch in exchange for an irresistible mega cheeseburgerâ€¦ and everything goes bonkers from there with a chain reaction of cataclysmic proportions!
â€œThe Archie Comics characters are comedy icons,â€ said Root.Â â€œEach characterâ€™s personality has been so well-defined over the course of nearly 70 years that it was a lot of fun to shake them up and present them with new challenges.Â Mostly, though, I just wanted to write a funny issue.Â I hope Archie fans like it!â€
