    Mr Goldwater added that people who might be offended by a gay storyline “aren’t the kind of people we want reading our comics anyway”.

    **** yes. Major respect to this guy. :D

    Ah, Archie comics… That takes me back…

    I couldn’t give a less of a God d*mn! It’s a comic book strip for Christ sakes! Who the hell cares?

    David in Indy: a little less abrasive please. Yes, it isn’t earth-shattering, but it’s no skin off your nose, and it’s just one more “bastion” falling..

    It’s not just an American thing, either. My mother grew up reading Archie in South America (and I think we get it here in Europe, too). It’s got a very large circulation, so hopefully it’ll reach plenty of youngsters in all sorts of nations.

  7. This looks sooooo dated. At least 30 years out of date.
