  • Archie Comics Collector: @I meant to say that there are no longer any logos on the cover from that B&V Friends 240 and on mentioning 320 pages and Giant Sized and that this issues descriptions just show 288 pages as you mentioned.

  • Archie Comics Collector: @spazaru- Good eye, but that is not the only jumbo issue that seems to have 288 pages. Starting with the August solicitations with Betty and Veronica Friends 240 Jumbo comics, all Jumbo comics shown in the solicits from then on to the current solicits no longer have the logo Giant Sized and 320 Pages but 288 pages. Jughead with Archie Jumbo comics #5 is the last one coming in a few weeks that still shows 320 pages and Giant Sized. I will call Archie tommorrow and see if this changing as shown in the solicits.

  • spazaru: I noticed in the October solicits on Archiecomics.com, the Betty and Veronica Jumbo Comics is only 288 pages instead of 320.  If that's true, that's kind of a rip since they just raised the price.  Hopefully it's not a trend, but just that issue.

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.)

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
