Times they are a changin.
Oh good grief...this is just pitiful.
It is laughable that MagneticPoles reads Archie comics.
I thought that they were too lame to read even back when I was in grade school.
What is laughable is that yet again you make a foolish statement showing you have no logical thought process. Where did I say I read them? The story is from a mainstream newspaper. Do you have any comment on the social impact of the subject, or just more of your personal attacks? I think we all know the answer.
Also so laughable.
So, as expected, the answer is no, you have no commentary on the story in the OP. Thanks.
I don't read Archie comics so I will leave it to those who have greater expertise on the subject.
So again, you prove your lack of understanding, even after it is explained to you. You don't find the topic of the story an interesting commentary on American society?
Archie comics is "American society" to you?
It's a COMIC BOOK.
It is not real.
Ya think? However, it is a cultural icon and a reflection of our society. But I am through trying. You obviously are typing in your sleep. Try again when you wake up. Go have some coffee.
It is not at all surprising. Marvel Comics has been unable to keep their political views out of print lately:
Spider-Man and Barack Obama team up!
It's a Brand New Day for the United States of America and Spider-Man's along for the ride!
And recently Captain America battled “A bunch of angry white folk” carrying signs protesting high taxes and socialism. Gosh I wonder who that could be.
That can't be the tea partiers. The signs are neatly printed and feature proper spelling. :laugh:
Well they should have gotten the SEIU to print them up and hand them out for free. They always do nice neat work.
Archie comics a cultrual icon?
It's a good thing that I wasn't drinking coffee when I read that or I would have spewed it all over my laptop. :laugh:
Supeman comics - from the sixty's - was a cultural icon.
But Archie comics?
This gay angle is about trying to find someone - anyone to buy an issue of their dumb comic.
I would guess that their demographics skew towards the seven and eight year old range - if they actually have any distribution at all.
How would you like to be the CEO of that sinking ship? :laugh:
Archie comics actually do have a pretty good distribution (they are in every grocery store checkout in America). They appeal to a slightly older age than seven or eight.
Personally I find it pretty sad that they would do this. It's just another step towards indoctrination of our kids. I hope someone like Focus on the Family comes out and issues a press release calling for a boycott of these titles and it hits them in the pocketbook.
I was never a big Archie fan as a kid. I was more into a lesser known comic called "A Man Called Nova" and "Sgt. Rock".
Nowadays, I kind of like "Fables: Legends in Exile". And, in case you're wondering why a forty-something year old man is reading comic books, I have a good friend who owns a comic book store ("Best Episode...EVER!") and he's always bringing me boxes of comic books (I have no idea why).
What's comical is that MP and Targus spent the whole first page of this thread spatting over the comics. :laugh:
I don't read Archie Comics much, and I've only bought 3 or 4 in my entire adult life. But I have seen discussion groups where some think Jughead was queer all along, as he resists 'Big Ethel' or any other girl; that his passion for food instead is a coverup, or else his substitution for what he really digs. I never thought that was intended by the creators, though. But... if those who currently have creative control give that consideration and are planning on this new character getting together with Jughead-- they'll definitely hear from me as a former fan (I'll leave out 'sometime' fan).
Anyone else remember when the Archie comics went "Christian" back in the 1970s?
