    Yesterday at 02:08:19 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I know once and a while the discount code gets as high as 30%, (in addition to whatever items they might have discounted otherwise), but the standard digest subscription price is already something like 40-45% off the cover price. I debated how long I should wait, and then just took the plunge with a 20% off code... naturally, the very next week the discount code went up to 25%. When it gets to 30% or 40%, I may extend my subs by another 2 years or so.

  • spazaru: Yes they do, PixyJunket!  You can get some smokin' prices on digests that way.
    May 28, 2015, 07:31:25 PM
  • PixyJunket: Do the general coupon codes for ArchieComics.com work for Digest subscriptions?
    May 28, 2015, 07:20:23 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: No, you're right... if you DON'T own those "Best of" collections, those two Jumbo digests are must-haves... great stories, but fair warning for those that did buy TBoAC... but my point is, something happened there to cause those hastily-thrown together REreprints that don't match the solicitation descriptions for those issues.
    May 28, 2015, 06:09:59 PM
  • PixyJunket: There's also the "trigger warning" at the front of the book, so I guess that means everything is unaltered too. Combine that with the source information and you have a wonderful format for Digests to compliment the New Riverdale stuff.
    May 28, 2015, 12:16:39 PM
  • BettyReggie: Later Pals & Gals
    May 28, 2015, 08:48:34 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @PixyJunket -- I wonder what's going on with these recent Jumbo digests. In the case of both Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #260 and B&V Jumbo Comics Digest #233, ALL of the contents are drawn from the BEST OF ARCHIE COMICS series paperback collections. No other content outside of that, and neither of those match the contents as originally solicited in advance.

Characters' birthdays?
« on: April 16, 2007, 02:06:34 PM »
Has anyone ever seen firm dates for the characters' birthdays? I bought a book yesterday that made me wonder....

archies_tv_laugh_out_51

Its a Zodiac themed party, but the signs the characters picked to be is intriguing:

Archie is a Pisces
Veronica is an Aquarius
Reggie is an Aries
Jughead is a Cancer
Moose is a Taurus
Betty is a Libra

Of course, there's nothing inthe book that follows up in this... ::)

I know next to nothing about Astrology, signs, personalities and such. Anyone out there that can shed some light on these choices? Do the characters' personalities follow the signs?

Hmmm..... :)

Ugh, who is the artist for the character profile on that link? Is it Jeff Schultz? I'd think Archie comics would want to get artwork from a higher profile artist, like Stan Goldberg.

I notice Jellybean got put on the same page as Hot Dog. Same as Midge and Nancy. What a weird setup. The website could use a revamping.

I forgot about that website.

Funny that they spelled Midge's last name wrong too... lol...

That's not the only typo on the site. On the front page, it says "Flutesnoot" instead of "Flootsnoot". I meant to tell them about that but got busy and forgot :)

I do agree that the website could use an overhaul - especially because there's no real alternative for those who don't have Flash (the menu does work without Flash, but most of the site requires it).

But the correct spelling IS "Flutesnoot"!

Ah, Dan Parent, eh? Makes sense then! I'm glad I didn't have to put Schultz on my list on artists I don't like! Jughead's profile picture makes him look short. It's almost like halfway through, Parent realized he would run out of space and had to shorten his legs to get him to fit into the picture.

See, in a story in Archie's Story and Game #27, called Reggie's Secret, Reggie's birthday is listed as April 1...April Fools Day.

You're right. It's still spelled wrong on the front page though. I was just getting them mixed up.

Cool Ginny, that's exactly what I was wondering. A lot of the traits seem to fit the characters, don't they?
