If Archie's Not Sacred, What Is?
I remember reading Archie comics when I was knee high to a grasshopper. On preview, that's really short. That would make me about 3 mm tall. Let's just say, I remember reading Archie comics as a very young kid and they were always around the house when I was growing up. Archie, Jughead, Reggie, Betty, Veronica, Big Moose and Ethel were all a part of my childhood.
If this is correct, the Riverdale gang is getting a new look in the new year. They're modernizing the appearance of the characters, giving them a more contemporary style. In other words, they're ruining what works about Archie.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the allure of Archie the 1950s innocence of it all? They don't belong in 2006, they're cut from a different cloth and that's okay. They've looked a certain way for decades and there's no point in changing that now.
If Archie Andrews and his pals aren't sacred, what is?
