Ripoffed By Archie
With all of the creative talent that exists in the world, you would think that someone would come up with a better idea than a dream sequence, or out of time sequence when the event was publicized beyond belief.
Yes, I am talking about Archie proposing to Veronica. This event was tallied as the biggest news story of the year. Archie was finally going to choose between Betty and Veronica, choosing the latter.
People were up in arms. One collector swore to sell off his entire collection! Archie Comics remained tight lipped as the blogoshpere went into a rumor frenzy.
My idea was that it would be a dream sequence. People laughed in scorned. “No way” they said. “This is real”, they said. I was wrong about the dream sequence, but Archie going for a walk and then having a Twilight Zone experience does not constitute reality. I should know as I have had plenty of those “Twilight Zone” experiences.
What have we learned from this debacle? Don’t trust the media machine. They lie.
