Re: “On feminism and fun in the Archie Comics series

I often say that when Archie speaks people listen. Again and again I hear Archie has been part of one's childhood, without Archie one's childhood would not be complete.

How does the Archie / Betty / Veronica love triangle fit into your feelings on feminism? I could not let your article go without bringing a few thoughts to light.

Betty is an all around capable, get-things-done person. She is everyone's model regardless of sex. Here at Archie we know our fans ( children & adults), be they digital subscribers, hard copy subscribers, or retail. We are proud to say we are genderless. Archie has been a brand propelled by readers worldwide, regardless of gender, beliefs, or personal preferences. All are not just welcome to the conversation, they are essential to it.

As for Veronica, I do not over look her perceived shallowness and indulgences, but she has my back. I entered the business world just 5 years ago, and quite naturally I was looking for mentors - even if they were fictional. Veronica has what I call the CIA in her - Confidence, Intelligence and Allure. Under the tutelage of her high power business tycoon father Hiram Lodge she performs well in the boardroom as well as the classroom.

Veronica and Betty have truly been trail blazers - not just for women, but for us all. They have taught us life long values. Archie, Betty, Veronica, and the rest of the population of Riverdale have endured in the hearts and minds of children of all ages because they continue to reflect the best in us. Archie and his friends and their families continue to bring a smile and an occasional tear to generation after

generation. I'm so very glad you took they time to pay a visit to my exhibit. As an Archie collector it reflects my passion and I'm proud to have it exhibited in libraries throughout the United States Thank you.
