    Some of us have a common interest in comics and animation, so I thought I'd start a thread. If there is already one, please forgive me and point me to it! :)

    I know @George Broderick Jr. and @XmasDreams may be interested. If you can think of anyone else, please invite them! Just a place for us to share news and tidbits or discuss favorites.

    I was always a fan of the Archie superheroes back in the Sixties... they were campy and "so bad they were good"!

    While we're on the topic of comics, here's a sneak peek at this year's Cool Yule Christmas Comic (a work in progress)...

    Good Lord willing and the creeks don't rise, first week of November. I'll be premiering it at the Akron Comicon.

    Thanks! This year, I'm looking at Scandinavian legends and putting as many into the story as will fit. Besides Julbock The Swedish Christmas Goat, Thor, Odin, Grendel and Krampus (who's really Germanic, but I needed a main villain), I'm featuring Icelandic folk legends, The Yule Lads... here's another sneak peek...

    BTW, the narrator Viking is named Warinov The Green...

    So, while we're on Archie Comics, any thoughts on the Riverdale TV series?

    Liked the start of the series but my biggest issue was since it is a CW show it has a specific formula that becomes more of a distraction. When the next season hits might check it out again and than decide if its worth keep watching.


    Just wish someone would get the rights to The New Archies from mid 80's. The show was one of those lost and forgotten shows, and all the other animated shows have made it out on DVD>

    My takeaway from the two or three episodes I watched is "Dawson's Archie"... teen angst at its finest...

    Pretty much. Would like to see a take on "Afterlife Archie"

    I haven't watched it. I wish they would have kept it a comedy. I know Archie has battled the supernatural and has had serious plots at times, but I love love light-hearted Archie hijinks.

    Is there any humor to it?
