    i used to read archie comics from the library when i was 8, and i'd buy tmnt adventures.
    good stuff (more the tmnt than actual jughead, etc. comics).

    Default Never really read more than a couple of Archie's

    but I respect the niche they've carved out for themselves. Successfully changing enough with the times to not be stagnant and to have prospered not only with the Archie characters in print, but the Sabrina the Teen-Age Witch sit-com, Josie and the Pussycats cartoon, etc.

    It's not what I gear to, but I understand the niche they're marketing to as well as the older relatives that want clean non-violent wholesome entertainment for them.

    One thing I've long admired about Archie is their successful continuation of the digest format. Too bad DC didn't continue with it. They were also smart mostly circumventing the direct market and getting most of their distribution through the newsstands.

    I'm more a fan of Archie's action/adventure titles like TMNT and Sonic The Hedgehog than the largely "anchored" and none-progressive Archie and Sabrina titles, but it's a testiment to the perseverance of old-school mentality behind the wheel that keeps that company vibrant

    You don't get a whole darn lot of people like Micheal these days, the industry is all the lonlier and a little more backwards for it. R.I.P.
