By , AIDS was decimating gay communities, and gay people would have been particularly attuned to Mr. Weatherbee's presentation. But Jughead's smirk indicates that I Dennis he does not see himself as much at risk as his fellow students, that is, as certainly not gay. It is a gesture that explains that thirty comic book years of not liking girls signified a ' healthy' shyness, certainly not same-sex desire. During the mid s, Archie Comics blatantly attempted to defuse any reading of Jughead's character as gay.

In "Genesis - the Beginning," Jughead is up late, when a beam of light emanates from his TV set and paralyzes him. He loses consciousness. The next morning he has received a facelift, and there is a curious masculine symbol affixed to his beanie.

I have a desire to talk to A girl! Reggie doesn ' t believe in Jughead 's transformation and intensifies his evaluation of"women-hating" from mere deviation to pathology: "That boy is one sickie!

Further stories in the mid s had Jughead, Archie, and Reggie recounting this experience over and over to practically everyone in Riverdale, and of course to every reader. In "Seeing is Unbelieving," Archie notes that Jughead had "either a close encounter or a mad nightmare, but it left him a self-confident, girl-loving, prowling wolf' 1.

The "woman-hating" of the past is dismissed as shyness though Jughead was never shy or lack of self-confidence though he was always the most self-confident of the group. In an open letter, managing editor John Goldwater noted that Jughead had "changed" but failed to give any details , and invited comments about whether readers liked the old or the new Jughead better Goldwater.

The consensus was overwhelming: readers preferred the old Jughead. Nevertheless, the girl-loving Jughead prevailed during the next decade: he was involved in several passionate affairs and tempestuous love-hate relationships, and many stories made casual reference to heterosexual dates.

Paradoxically, the girl-hating Jughead occasionally appeared; in "Bank Trouble," he saves an attractive female star from drowning, but refuses a kiss as a reward because he hates kissing girls. Minor characters were similarly recast in the mid s to avoid the implication of same-sex desire in same-sex dyads. Before , Veronica's mother appeared rarely; her father, Mr.

Lodge, was more Archie Comics I or less a single parent. Servants came and went, depending on the need of the story, but Smithers the butler remained constant.

His attachment to Mr. Lodge transcended the employer-employee relationship. Often the two were shown sitting side by side in easy chairs, cozily discussing Veronica's latest shopping spree or enjoying Archie's latest comeuppance as equals. From on, the role of Smithers decreased, and suddenly Mrs.

Lodge appeared in almost every story involving Veronica's home life. Archie Comics survived and even prospered through the strategic marketing of comic digests and the hiring of a cadre of new writers, including women and people of color, introduced by editors Nelson Ribeiro and Victor Gorelick Archie Comics Website.

They reinvented Archie Comics by experimenting with style and color, exploring odd corners of the Archie universe with such titles as "Ditton's Weird Science" and "Jughead 's Diner" , and softening the more stereotypic characters Moose became dyslexic, not stupid, and Big Ethel, shunned for decades as ugly, became simply plain, but nonetheless hip, fun, and popular.

They also moved away from the mania to make every character "boy-crazy" or "girl-crazy," positing a Riverdale where teenagers enjoy a wide variety of interests.

Some stories even dealt explicitly with the possibility of same-sex desire. In " Little Black Book" surely a reworking of "Tough Bluff' , Betty encounters an address book, assumes that it contains a boy's romantic prospects, and is surprised to find her name missing. A moment later, she concludes that it is Veronica 's "little black book," thus offering a heterosexual solution to the ' problem ' of romantic interest in boys. But this solution does not affirm the universality of heterosexual desire: previously, Betty took it for granted that the book belonged to a boy, that somewhere in Riverdale was a boy who dated or wished to date Tom Cameron and Ron Cook; her nonchalance suggests that same-sex desire is not so out of the ordinary after all.

Later, Jughead explains what happened by 'sweeping' Veronica off her feet. Principal Weatherbee expresses outrage over this "carrying on" an Archie universe expression for heterosexual practice , and threatens detention for the next culprit. At that moment, Moose appears with Ditton in his arms 5. The sight of a boy 'sweeping' another boy off his feet so shocks Mr. Weatherbee that hi s glasses and toupee pop off, and question marks and exclamation marks appear above the students' heads.

Moose explains that he is merely carrying Ditton to the infirmary after a sports injury, thereby offering a homosocial solution to the ' problem. In "You've Got to Give Her Credit," written by Hal Smith, Veronica is delighted to receive some credit cards in the mail and asks Smithers the butler to "give the mailman a big kiss for me!

In the next sequence, Mr. Lodge, dining with a male companion at the Riverdale Country Club, exclaims "It's like they're multiplying" 3. In the foreground, a young man with black hair and a mustache grins as he wraps his arm around the shoulders of a muscular red-haired man, who is turned toward him with a dreamy expression.

Although both are wearing suits, implying a business deal , they look precisely as if they are in the midst of a romantic evening. Lodge is obviously referring to Veronica's multiplying credit cards, but as our eyes are drawn to an overt same-sex couple, we cannot help but speculate on his response to the increasing visibility of gay men in North American society.

In a self-reflective postmodem twist in "Verse Than Ever," also written by Hal Smith, Veronica is aware that she is a character in a comic book, and objects to its title, Betty and Veronica. She wants to be first.

She argues that Betty would be better in last place, because so many words rhyme with Betty that they could therefore create poems. As an example, she recites "Break out the confetti!

Veronica Archie Comics I and Betty are going steady! Betty wheezes "Whew! The thought that they might be considered lovers has had a profound impact on her.

While Veronica is unfazed and may even have intended the implication, Betty reacts with a veritable panic.

What are we to make of this sequence? Not entirely cognizant of the definitional boundaries of adult romantic relationships and friendships, children often confuse the two, ascribing romance to relationships that surely would not involve explicit erotic desire.

If this sort of slippage is intended, Betty's reaction makes no sense. Instead, she must be aware that girls sometimes date girls, that she and Veronica could indeed "go steady. An explanation may be found in Betty's longstanding characterization as an athletic type and a tomboy, at ease in the auto garages and workshops where she is gender-polarized as male; she is frequently advised that her heterosexual loves are stymied because she is too much like 'one of the guys.

Indeed, she often demonstrates rather explicit same-sex interests. At the beach with Archie, she continuously points out attractive women: "Isn't that a pretty girl? Doesn't she have a gorgeous body? Perhaps the 'joke' in "Verse Than Ever" rang too true, highlighting a subtext in her relationship with Veronica that neither she nor the author could comfortably address.

He immediately brings Archie on stage, and the story switches to slapstick. Conclusion During the last sixty years, thousands of Archie comics stories have introduced millions of children, as well as teenagers and adults, to a Riverdale where heterosexual desire supposedly informs every I Dennis action , every thought, every plan.

But every text is open, every reading is fragmentary, every hegemony is ultimately incoherent. Even the most heteronormative boy-tom-between-girls text will see same-sex desire intrude in the form of a boy who walks off with his arm around another boy, or a girl who makes a 'joke' about going steady with her best friend.

We can never conclude definitively that Jughead is in love with Archie, or that he is not, or that Veronica is in love with Betty, or that she is not.

The characters exist only as lines and squiggles on a page; their thoughts, their goals, their desires must be articulated through generic conventions and intertextual references. And it is in that articulation that we can find queer spaces even at Riverdale High. Archie Comics Website. Barrier, Michael, and Martin Williams. New York: Abrams, Barthes, Roland.

The other boys laud him as a hero. The absence of heterosexual practice - and a boy becoming the best source of girl-advice on boys - creates a queer space that challenges the presumption of universal heterosexual desire.

Archie Strikes Out. Cliff invites Veronica for a ride and, oblivious to the danger, she accepts.
