  • DeCarlo Rules: Not committing to any definite longevity also saves the publisher from the perception of cancellation-shaming if they can claim it was never intended to be anything but a limited series.  ;)

  • DeCarlo Rules: Other publishers like Dynamite Entertainment are known to be cagey about announcing a definite status or 'ongoing series' or 'miniseries' when soliciting or announcing a new title, taking a wait-and-see approach based on how the initial issues sell.
    April 22, 2017, 10:06:02 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: The 5-issue trial miniseries fits with what I know of ACP's general cautious approach to things like Life With Kevin, and with prior decisions like the quickly-reconsidered ongoing status of Reggie and Me after preorder numbers for the issue #1 solicitation became known to ACP.

  • DeCarlo Rules: This fits with ACP

  • Vegan Jughead: Dan Parent told me on Twitter that it's a 5 issue series, ACC.  He said he hopes for it to be extended or another series in the same vein to follow it if this is successful.

  • Archie Comics Collector(Kalell): Your Pal Archie looks very interesting and as far as I can tell will be a monthly series. The 5 issues only mentioned by another forum member is due to the first 5 issues having a variant cover that will form a huge image of Pop's Chocklit shop. But nowhere did I see that it was being limited to 5 issues, possibly only if sales are not there but as of now should be longer than 5 issues.

  • JonInIowaCity: I'm starting to wonder if someone is actually going to die. What if Reggie just gets badly injured/permannetly disabled? Relooking at the promo info and Waid's interview, I'm starting to wonder if we're asusming that they're building towards a death, but they're not.

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.

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.
