  • PixyJunket: I decided against it, would be $110 (ticket+commision) and almost two hours of driving. Commsion cost I am okay with, I'm not paying $50 to get in since I don't care about anything else there. I might drop off a few CB singles to my friend going to get signed, at least.

  • PixyJunket: I just saw the coupon myself, I think I'll grab World of Archie and B&V Friends subs.
    Today 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.
    Yesterday at 07:31:25 PM
  • PixyJunket: Do the general coupon codes for ArchieComics.com work for Digest subscriptions?
    Yesterday at 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.
    Yesterday at 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.

  • BettyReggie: Later Pals & Gals
    Yesterday at 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.
    Yesterday at 07:30:56 AM
  • BettyReggie: I just got some new podcasts with Fiona Staples and Brian the guy who wrote Saga & The writer of Archie Vs. Predator. I will listen while I'm in bed.

  • Archie Comics Collector: Yes! New Jughead #1 coming in October and very close to my birthday! I can't wait!

  • BettyReggie: I'll see you all tomorrow
    May 27, 2015, 08:32:23 PM
  • BettyReggie: I guess since we able to see the reboot of Jughead maybe we see the new Betty & Veronica soon.

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! :)

Well, that and the sun appears to be going super nova. :)

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
