Proof of concept

So this is what the list of Companies & Brands in the Archie Universe that I talked about yesterday might look like.  If I were to do such a thing.  Which I probably wouldn't.  But you never know.

I found these all in one digest!  Note that I added Archie's patented barely-disguised celebrities too...

Hmmm... I saw Riverdale Record used as the name of the newspaper in Laugh Digest Magazine #156 too. Maybe they are consistent and always use it (but I had never noticed it before)...
