Archie Comics is on the CW and nobody told me...

So last night, after I get home from a Church Council meeting, Becky (my wife) and Zoe (teenage daughter) are watching something on the CW. I take one look at it and say, "Hey... Cole Sprouse is wearing a Jughead Hat. That's awesome!" (Yes, I saw every episode of "Suite Life." I've got kids. Shut up!)

Zoe: Who's Jughead?
Me: He's a character in Archie Comics.
Becky: Well, you know, this is based on Archie. It's called "Riverdale."
Me: WHAT!!!?

That's right. Archie Comics' chief creative officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has created a teen drama based on Archie Comics. It's got everyone from Archie to Josie and the Pussycats. They even wear the ears and it kinda' works. Except it's dark, sick, twisted and totally awesome.

There's no sign of Archie's jalopy yet, but a man can hope.

So yes, I'm going to be watching the new teen drama on the CW. (BTW - It's got Luke Perry too.)
