Riverdale Podcast: Jon Shares His Favorite Archie Comic Memory of 2015!!

You all know that I'm a longtime fan of "Riverdale Podcast," the official Archie Comics Podcast! Earlier this month, Jonathan put out the call for listeners to call or email with their favorite Archie Christmas tales and/or their favorite stories from 2015.

I called in a couple of weeks ago and my comments were aired this weekend on this week's episode:
Jonathan! It's Jon from Iowa City! I was just calling because you had put out a request for people to share their favorite Archie memories within the year 2015. And I was going through my collection and I have to say that I'm a fan of the new JUGHEAD series and everything that Chip and Erica are doing right now with it. But... the big thing that was the most exciting Archie story -- and it was probably the most unexpected Archie story of the year. It wasn't even done fully by Archie Comics. It was actually their joint project with Dark Horse Comics, which is ARCHIE VS. PREDATOR. I would have never thought in a million years that they would do it. Between the art and the story and the characterizations... It was close to perfect, especially the first couple issues of the story. But pretty much the whole thing. And to be honest, it ended up being more of a "Betty and Veronica" story instead of an "Archie" story. I think. So that was probably my all-time favorite story.

I just wanted to add in, I really liked that they had those one-page Archie/Dark Horse crossovers at the end of each story. So you had Sabrina and Hellboy doing a little adventure. Or Mind Mgmt and Jughead doing something together. I just really like those stories altogether.

I hope you're doing well and I hope you have a good Christmas! I will talk with you later. Bye!
It was fun hearing some of my online friends like BettyReggie and Murray on this episode of "Riverdale Podcast," as well as a few other friends to sent online messages with their ideas.
