Again with the Archie Brands

Remember when I was doing this last year...why did I stop? Oh yeah, it was because I was going to find someplace else to do it besides here in my journal. Well, I still plan on doing that, but until then here are a couple more I just did today....

List of companies, brands, organizations, entertainments, fictional characters, celebrities, etc. in the Archie Universe(s)

Archie’s Pal, Jughead Comics #188 (May 2008)

Companies & Brands

Corn Dogs Plus – A fast food restaurant in Riverdale Mall. Jughead won a year’s supply of corn dogs there once.

Krusty Kreme Donuts – A donut shop in Riverdale whose donuts are best when they are fresh. A parody of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.

Riverdale Men’s Wear – A men’s wear store in Riverdale.

Samm’s Hometown Bakery – A bakery in Riverdale. I assume it is named after longtime Jughead artist Samm Schwartz.

Stuff ‘N’ Stuff – A “make your own stuffed animal” store in Riverdale Mall. Jughead and Jellybean attended the grand opening.

Betty #173 (June 200)

Companies & Brands

Gerard’s – A fine dine restaurant in Riverdale. Betty waitressed there for a while. Owned by Gerard (unknown if that is his first or last name). Another waitress is named Leslie.

Shoe World – See Laugh Digest Magazine # 153. In this issue, it appears only in Ethel’s daydream.

Again with the Archie Brands...

That reminds me: We were in line at the Wal-mart and Heather picked up an Archie Digest and thumbed to a random page. There was a panel making a current reference (downloading to an iPod or something) and I said... so do they actually make new Archie comics from scratch, or did they take an old one where they were say "buying a new Beatles LP" and just change the words.

Reading it is like some weird parallel universe where Archie and his pals have never aged but the entire world has changed around them.

Yes, they do (sometimes) update references in reprinted stories. But they also have 2 or 3 new stories in each digest, and some of the reprinted stories are only 7 or 8 years old, so there's quite a mix of references in a average digest...
