  • Magic Necromancer: true it's not much compared to some big time comic lists but i try to reduce the cost so my dad doesn't lecture me about spending too much dough on comics

  • DeCarlo Rules: $46 is not that much.  I work a part-time job 18-20 hours/week, JUST to pay for my comics... of course that includes some high-priced hardcovers almost every week.

  • 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.
    March 30, 2015, 11:35:50 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Did I mention that Archie's in it too? With all that other stuff, I'm almost surprised they found the room.
    March 30, 2015, 11:33:54 PM
  • Archie Comics Collector: I hope they will do more Jumbo Comics like this in the future.
    March 30, 2015, 11:31:34 PM
  • 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.
    March 30, 2015, 11:25:26 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: About the only thing they didn't manage to cram in there was a story with the Mighty Crusaders.
    March 30, 2015, 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...
    March 30, 2015, 11:21:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: They even managed to squeeze a story by Mark Waid in there.
    March 30, 2015, 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!

Archie's Sunday Best
« on: December 30, 2011, 01:49:04 PM »
Coming in March from IDW Publishing...



Bob Montana (w & a & c)
Continuing the Eisner Award-winning series of the rare Archie newspaper strips by Bob Montana, we turn our attention to his remarkable full-color Sunday pages. Archie's Sunday Best is the first-ever collection of the late 1940s and early 1950s color Sunday strips. Montana is approaching the peak of his creative of his juices in these pages, which feature classic Archie themes and characters.
HC  FC  $49.99  160 pages  9.25" x 12" ISBN 978-1-61377-152-5

Bullet points:   
Edited by Eisner Award-winner Dean Mullaney.

A tad bit on the pricey side, but I'm sure it will be well worth the price, just as all of their other Archie collections have been.

You can pre-order this at Amazon.com for $31.49. It's a beautiful, large format hardcover book. That's the same price as 8 poor quality double digests.  Really not a bad deal, especially considering the quality and love that has been put into previous IDW published Archie books.

When will IDW reprint the Archie 1960's and early 1970's Bob Montana comic strips, mostly the Sundays?

I'm not sure dth. Probably sometime in the coming years. They have a lot of ground to cover in that area.
