    Redesign Archie? That's unpossible!

    http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=94511

    It's just... It's just so wrong. If they take away Jughead's stupid little hat, I'm gonna be very annoyed.

    EDIT: Phew, they aren't changing all the titles. It's a 4 issue experiment...

    Man, I thought they would never change the way they looked. Like ever. Crazy.

    My problem isn't so much with the fact that they've done it, but with the fact that they've done it so badly.

    From the comments on the Newsarama article:
    Direct quote from 8-year-old Sarah: "Why are they ruining Archie?!"

    That was one of the best quotes... guess it's just the way things are done these days. Anyone else feel that "More realistic" is becoming a euphemism for "less personality"? Seems to me they're changing an immediately recognizable icon into something that really gets lost in a crowd...
