The Comic Mix gals ask the tough questions:
"Since Archie has been around more than 60 years, we asked, "Shouldn't they be old geezers asking for pills instead of going to college?” Mr. Silberkleit asked if anyone wanted to read those stories, and only a few people said, “Yes.”
We also asked, “Why do Betty and Veronica like Archie so much? He’s the nerdiest guy in the school. He drives a crappy car. He doesn’t have any money. He doesn’t look great and he has freckles and crosses on his head.” Dan Parent said all of this gave hope to him when he was a kid."
