"Realism, drama, and wit", huh?

I can't speak for anyone else, but in my opinion, if it goes in the direction I think you're alluding to, it won't really "work" in the long run. Archie has always been a family franchise, and personally, the last thing I want to see, original comics or not, is for this classic franchise to be turned into another generic "teen soap opera" that focuses more on the characters' personal problems/demons, and basically gives a weekly sermon about how supposedly "unfair" life is, and how our way of thinking is supposedly "wrong" because it's either not the supposedly "popular" way of thinking, or because it's not how the world supposedly "works". Besides which, people have already seen Gossip Girl, not to mention the newer "90210" series. People want Archie, not any of those shows. Just saying.
