I can barely wait to call this meeting to order. It’s the eighth Riverdale Auxiliary, but the first (!) featuring guest selections! Adam Wilson joined us for this episode, and we had blast recording with him. Follow him on twitter: @theleanover. We will have him back on in the future, because so smart, so funny, so adorbz. And he’s a redhead, just like Archie.
Keep reading for snapshots of this week’s discush.
Our one-page gags
I, for one, think Jughead should be commended for not eating their profits. I’m not deleting this terrible caption.
The saddest comic in this issue, possibly of all time. BETTY YOU’LL MEET A NICE MAN BUT THAT MAN IS NOT ARCHIE ANDREWS — ARCHIE ANDREWS IS A SELF-INVOLVED, NARCISSISTIC JERK #jesuisbetty
Adam’s Heartwarming Trivia
Archie Corp did a good, progressive thing. <3
Betty & Veronica play mind games with Big Ethel. Miss Grundy is championship hungry and abuses her position of authority^^. Jughead is (not for the first time) mean to Big Ethel. Et cetera. The morality and ethics in this comic are complicated and problematic and crazy manipulative, but so bonkers over the top, we couldn’t not, you know?
We find out Reggie is a comedian, and Adam has an existential crisis. Also Evan thinks maybe Miss Grundy is a time lord.
