  • Steveinthecity: Sounds like a cool selection of stories in that digest. I'll have to grab that one. Although smaller, Funhouse #12 had a pretty good mix, though it was all Archie related, one Josie story(20+ pages).

  • DeCarlo Rules: I don't know why, but they really took the time to make this one special. It's sort of a Jumbo mini-crash course in Archie Comics history.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Did I mention that Archie's in it too? With all that other stuff, I'm almost surprised they found the room.

  • Archie Comics Collector: I hope they will do more Jumbo Comics like this in the future.

  • DeCarlo Rules: OK, I guess they missed Super Duck, Suzie, Ginger, and Pat the Brat this time around, too. But it's the most well-rounded anthology I think I've ever seen.

  • DeCarlo Rules: About the only thing they didn't manage to cram in there was a story with the Mighty Crusaders.
    Yesterday at 11:23:09 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: And of course, a few by Harry Lucey, Dan DeCarlo, Stan Goldberg, Bob Bolling, Bob White, Bob Montana, Dan Parent, Fernando Ruiz, Henry Scarpelli, Bill Golliher...
    Yesterday at 11:21:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: They even managed to squeeze a story by Mark Waid in there.
    Yesterday at 11:18:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: There is a little bit of "Everything Archie" in this digest... Superteen, Wilbur, Sabrina (from 3 different eras), Betty & Veronica, the Madhouse Glads, Josie, That Wilkin Boy, Cosmo the Merry Martian, Little Pureheart, Li'l Jinx, Life With Archie (both versions, from the 1960s and the 2010s), even a section of Bob Montana's daily newspaper strips from 1946!

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
