  • DeCarlo Rules: That's pretty much the whole point of having an internet -- it connects you to entertainment, information, and people who would otherwise be too far away from you physically, or would involve much greater effort on your part to connect with. And although there are some advantages for comic book collectors inherent in the direct-market dedicated comic book shop system, the major BIG (obvious) DISadvantage is that only a few thousand of those shops exist, compared to the huge number of retailers who used to carry comic books along with their other products back in the days of the "newsstand distribution system".

  • Tuxedo Mark: The only "local" comic shop within "reasonable" distance of my house is 18 miles away, in the next county. Yeah, no, I'll continue getting my comics digitally.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @Archiecomicxfan215 - FCBD comic books may be free to you, but the retailer has to PAY for those comic books he gives away for free. The publishers of the FCBD comics make no profit off them, and they're distributed to retailers by Diamond Comics for free, but they have to charge comic shop owners money for them, because paper and printing costs money. Your local comic shop owner loses a small amount of money with every FCBD comic book he gives away. Of course the whole idea behind FCBD is that sampling those free comic books will create interest in customers actually BUYing the retail versions of those FCBD comic books later on.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Don't forget to pick up the FCBD issue of DIE KITTY DIE: I Love You to Death! by Dan & Fernando from Chapterhouse Comics! Oh, and I guess if you care about that RIVERDALE thing, you could pick up the FCBD issue where Pop Tate eavesdrops on all the conversations of his teenage customers (makes him sound a little creepy, if you ask me...) Doesn't an adult business proprietor have more important things to worry about???

Just received World of Archie Jumbo Comics #60 and they are featuring a reprint of part 1 of a 2 parter Man from Riverdale from the amazing Fernando Ruiz. Part 2 will be in World of Archie #61 coming in August!

Hmm... That was a four part series. I guess they're consolidating that into two REALLY big parts. Part 2 isn't out until August? Ugh!


I guess they're at the point where they're starting to put all of those twenty-page stories we did in the 32-page books about five years ago into the digests now. Those stories are going to eat up a lot of real estate in those books. I remember being told five years ago "The five page story is dead." I thought that was crazy! The five-page story is Archie's bread and butter! With these twenty-page stories you're looking at getting about five stories per issue!




I was wrong as I was assuming that it was a 2 part story but it is indeed a 4 part story. So the next three parts will be in the next three World of Archie Comics Digests #61, #62, #63

I actually don't mind the page count these stories take as their awesome multi part stories from the past. Usually they limit the 20 page stories like Man from Riverdale to one per digest as the rest are the regular smaller stories.

Fernando is an icon not only in Archie comics, but in comics in general. It is a damn shame that they showed him the door. I have the digest that is shown on the 1st post with the story and as usual Fernando did great work.

Wow, you're on here and you are thanking me. Wow, I am acting like an 11 year old. :) I should be thanking you more for the countless smiles and laughs you gave me during my youth.

My all-time favorite Ruiz cover:


http://www.archiefans.com/index.php?media/item/b-vdd213.1409/


I love the little nuances like the girls simply taking in the sun at the beach, with the subtle light and shadows on them. The two beauties radiate sexuality, in fact, it could easily rival a DeCarlo cover in this regard (no offense DR). Ronica differentiates from Betty as she listens to her music while Betty simply lies there, possibly listening to the sea and feeling the breeze. Both girls are content. Nothing needs to be said. Excellent work...

I don't know if DeCarlo ever drew the boobs that big. This cover was pushing the boundaries for ACP and a preview for what was to come with Die Kitty Die.

Yeah, my first though is DeCarlo always went first with impossibly tiny waists and alluring outfits and poses for the girls. 
Comics!

I guess it's a matter of preference. DeCarlo played loose, too, given his past work before Archie. And Cheryl Blossom really pushed that boundary, lest we forget....

Me too.

I think I saw FR had a print made of that cover illustration to sell, and it doesn't surprise me that would be one of his most popular covers and prints. It seems to be pretty well-recognized among Archie fans.

So the sad day is finally here. Another reminder that everything I like has to go away. Well, except for The Simpsons.

And if I had to say Ruiz' best art it's either Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. (Also my all-time favorite Archie story) or Cyrano Jones.

I certainly did, DecarloRules.


Not only is it a popular print, but it also stops a lot of traffic at conventions!


By the way, everyone can check out my prints over at my website:


http://fernandoruizeverybody.com/comic-prints-for-sale-purchase/




That's the place to go to find out about my latest projects and appearances. I will even talk about Archie still whenever it comes up over there.

That is very generous, Mr.Lodge. Thank you.
