I agree with the comments that Archie doesn't need realism in it. Archie has always been an escape from the mayhem, the sad, the pains. I like the fact that Archie's world is the "perfect" place. Where all is good, well except for Reggy. It's nice to escape to that place and just know things are all happy and nice. Not the place I want to see tragedy... my escape to a nirvana type world has been marred.

I few people know I read comics, but I guess I don't shout from the mountain tops. If it comes up in conversation, I talk about it.
racist or not, the guy was being a jackass and doesn't deserve your business. Find someplace else to spend your money. Of course, word of mouth is the best "payback" you can give him. Make sure everybody you know gets to hear how he treated you and put a cramp in his business if you can.
Especially since you explained to him that you were waiting for a ride and making purchases... hell, he lost business... not a good move in my book.
Reminds me of this... My son has gotten into reading the Hardy Boys' mysteries. There are a lot of phrases and terms used in those books that we need to explain to him. Mostly because they are really dated. Usually gives me a chuckle though.
When I travel for work, I like to pop into the local comic book store and check things out. I frequent my local shop and they take pretty good care of me. Can't complain on that front. They do their best to find comics I need.
I realize that G-man liked the art in this issue... I'm sorry to say I did not. I think it dropped off.
The story was good, that much is true. Should be interesting to see where this goes from here.
