Did you read Archies comics when you were a kid?
I myself had a handful of 'em- along with MAD and other comic books like Spiderman and Hot Rod Cartoons/CarToons. I think they're still boxed-up in my mom's attic, and -alas- probably would be worth a few bucks if not for the sad condition so typical of things I first owned when I was a Cub Scout.
But the numerous variations on the comic series featuring "Archie Andrews" -which began in 1941- were pure teenage America, always fun and taken as whole delivered a positive message. After some honest and probing self-analysis, I'd even have to say that my youthful crush on Veronica could be the origin of a lifelong preference for brunettes (hey, she was hot!).
The traditional-style Archies comic book series is still published actually- and while I have no way of knowing what demographic they pull nowadays, I first read these things when I was about eight years old. Archies gay comic Therefore it's safe to assume that's the kind of little kids that will be soaking-up the radical gay agenda theme they're now peddling both in-print and online... and in one little corner of our (under siege) culture you might have thought to be safe from such ceaseless propaganda.
Recent issues feature The Archies' new openly gay character "Kevin Keller", who dubuted in 2010 as a new kid-in-town. Seems Veronica was hot for him from the day one, yet he oddly showed no interest in the raven-haired comic goddess.
Now a year later, they're marrying him off to his black boyfriend.
For some reason, the left-wing nuts that run the Archie empire are looking to have a whole different sort of effect on boys reading Archies comics today than learning to appreciate the ever-hot Betty and Veronica as we did in my time... is this really necessary?
And are these issues -which have to compete with comics/storylines that might actually interest children- selling any copies...? Hard to imagine, that: perhaps some hyper-liberal organization or individual is underwriting this guaranteed loser product so a handful of kooks in San Francisco and Massachusetts can ram it down their hapless kids'/students' throats... the storyline can't possibly be based on any sort of normal marketing considerations.
So be sure not miss the special #OWS double-issue boys-n-girls, now in kiddie book-store sections nationwide... maybe next week 'Jughead' can put together an after-school athiests' club, wouldn't that be neat...

OMG SICK SICK SICK!
The brainwashing of America’s kids continues.
What you say is true, yet these rags are there with the kids’ stuff in the grocery store magazine rack
I’m glad you warned me about this, RR, so that I can guide my kids away from it. I haven’t looked at a comic book in many, many, many years, but I remember really well how Betty and Veronica came alive! With just a few strokes of the pen, the comic artist(s) conveyed everything necessary to stir my pre-adolescent blood (etc.) to the sizzle-point.
Those girls were HOT
Kevin... not so much lol
Of course, since Betty & Veronica were cartoon images, the only real difference was their depicted hair color and that Veronica’s father was rich.
The MAD magazine lampoon of “Starchie Standrews”, his pal “Bottleneck”, his gals “Biddie & Salonica” and archrival “Wedgie van Smelt” remains a classic to this day. A little more realistic, too, about practices like selling school `passes’ to freshmen, zip guns (”all loaded with a linoleum square”), drug paraphernalia in the girls’ purses, their faces pockmarked with acne, the school principal Mr. Weathernot chasing the girls around his office (”I can’t help it I tell you! They’re drawn so gosh darned CUTE!!”).
Well.... Starchie’s custom 1954 Mercury sedan with the .50 cal machine gun on top and from which he and Bottleneck pushed Wedgie to his death may have exaggerated just a bit.
But all that’s mild joshing compared to today’s PC agenda driven gay friendly Archie comix. Mild indeed.
Yeahbut...my pre-adolescent hormones surged at they way Betty and Veronica filled out those sweaters—and all done with merely a few lines.
