  • mitsuhoney: So let me get this straight, in order to do a pull list for Midtown Comics, I need 10 subscriptions?! That is so ridiculous. :(

  • spazaru: I doubt it, chancebond.  The market will determine what Archie or anyone can charge.  No way anyone will pay that much.  Or at least I hope they wouldn't.

  • chancebond: in a coupla years or so... with seattle's minimum wage being at $15 bucks an hour... and other cities raising theirs... archie comics will probably be 10-15 bucks a pop... imagine paying that times 6 for every title of comics digests.  even more for annual, and jumbo comics

I don't collect the digests, but I was never crazy about the Story & Game covers when the cover itself was a game.



I count 13 things wrong, how about you?  :)

If we're going to see a cover with an extreme close-up of Betty and Veronica gossiping about Archie, we could at least get a spoken or visual gag behind it!

Of course, what's more unforgivable is having a spelling mistake in the cover gag itself.

Yeah, in a story, I can see how it can be missed.  A cover gag, though...I dunno...  ;)

Who's to say they aren't blue? We usually see nothing of the girls' eyes except the typical black dots.




Betty Cooper + Cheryl Blossom. It's inevitable.

I think they kept the black dot eyes all those years to make Cheryl's green eyes stand out more.

This cover kind of stinks.

a) It's joke-free.

b) Archie is impressed by some really mediocre-looking cheerleading.  He should watch the competitions on ESPN sometime.  (Actually, knowing Archie, he probably does.)

I can see why. What a lame routine. No way are they winning the national title! :)

The supernova destroyed Archie's version of Earth-2, where the covers have no jokes and the cheerleaders are merely adequate.  :)

The obvious joke is Archie's hideous flannel shirt.  Is he going to be giving out paper towels?

And is the asian-esque girl under Betty an actual character or just one of those phantom teenagers that roam the halls of Riverdale High like ghosts to be seen once and never again?

I always thought it was Tomoko.  The cover's too old for it to be Kumi.  :D
