archie comics for sale

I am a serious archie comic book collecting whoreena. I have 2,000, dating all the way back to the beginning.

you wouldn't think that about me, wouldjya?

it's time we part ways and have closure, so who wants to buy my collection? do people read archies anymore? or have I just outed myself as a total fucking loser?!

ps: if I did, go me :)

If they had only shown Veronica's nips, I'd be interested.

I bet she was blowing Jughead after all. Why else would he always have that goofy look on his face?

I've been a big affionado of comic books all my life. I usually went in for the action comic books-- Iron Man, Spiderman, Sft. Rock, etc., but when I was 8 or 9, my best friend Richie found a huge trove of comic books in the basement of his apartment building. About half of them were Archie comics, and I developed a serious Archie habit. Loved the tv show, too.

I remember as a kid getting my mom to buy "Super Sugar Crisps" because the 45 of "Sugar, Sugar" was on the back of the box-- for real! You cut it out and threw it on the old turntable.

I used to read Archies, though just like tabloids, I never actually purchased one myself. I will readily admit to "reading" them, the way they drew Betty and Veronica...wooooo!

BFF, I love Betty & Veronica. I read Archies like mad as a kid. What gay kid wouldn't love Veronica's bitchiness while yearning to be as nice and wholesome as Betty? Of course, Midge was the only one getting any dick to brag about. I bet Moose was hung like, well, a Moose.

Oh, and what about Sabrina????

ps: Sell it on Craig's List! Or go to a comic book collector store - I know they have several in LA.

This from Wikipedia:

On April 4, 2003, Dad's Garage Theatre in Atlanta was scheduled to debut a new play, Archie's Weird Fantasy, which depicted Riverdale's most famous resident coming out of the closet and moving to New York. The day before the play was scheduled to open, Archie Comics issued a cease and desist order, threatening litigation if the play proceeded as written. Dad's Garage artistic director Sean Daniels said, "The play was to depict Archie and his pals from Riverdale growing up, coming out and facing censorship. Archie Comics thought if Archie was portrayed as being gay, that would dilute and tarnish his image."

Now THAT is a comic that would sell by the truckload in Frisco and Sydney!
