I don't think it should matter about holiday decorations in schools as long as you showcase each holiday celebrated by different people.

Still while Archie is still fun, I still prefer the married life. Im surprised there was no showcase about Clay getting shot.

While it sounds stupid to argue about an Archie comic, public schools are are just that, public schools. They are for everyone. They should remain neutral regarding religious matters, including Christmas. I think it would be best for them to avoid displaying any religious symbols during the holiday season, except for secular ones. If they insist on showing displaying religious ones, then they should include symbols for all religions who wish to be displayed.

Are Archie books on the up swing sales wise?

why does it matter sales wise? They are just fun to read. but for more mature I would recommend reading Life With Archie : Married life ongoing series. its good except with that whole multiverse story they did.

There are no atheists in Riverdale.

Absolutely wonderful title and I'm loving the preview. Amazing too because it seems all the more appealing while listening to "Monochrome Effect" by Perfume...
