  • irishmoxie: I'm thinking of creating a pull list (especially since archiecomics.com is over a week late with Archie #2, which I bought digitally anyway. Gotta support!) but there's still no guarantee I'll get it on release day. Anyone else have problems with getting stuff from archiecomics.com way late??

  • terrence12: PTF Really what i said is i am sorry,I understand now and  i was just saying if archie would meet and rescue archie (the 40s and 50s one) during the climax and would also  meet the reboot one near the end of this fan fiction thats all.

  • queenhenny: HI, I was just wondering if anyone recalls Holly G! Sabrina stories being reprinted in digests or double digests over the years. Does anyone know which titles her Sabrina stories appeared in, if any? Thank you!

  • terrence12: Hey PTF you didn't reply my answer in this thread:http://www.archiefans.com/fan-fiction/archie-in-universes-at-peril/msg86347/?topicseen;PHPSESSID=3617c1d4a5c280b1cad43e5574d97a52#new  So this fanfiction is about archie teaming up with alternate versions of himself saving and restoring their worlds and universe  from a powerful threat which is an affectionate parody of comic crossover events like DC crisis on infinite earths and marvel's secret wars am i right?If it does then do you think the current archie will meet the original archie from the 40s and 50's which might be the prime universe so that  the big bad of this fanfiction will set to destroy it and end the various counterparts of archie along with every universe?  And do you think near the end of your fan fiction tale you made there will be a part with  archie before  going back to his restored universe he will then  meet the reboot counterpart of himself in his universe ? Its something like a passing of the torch moment.

  • BettyReggie: I tweeted this question to archie comics-@ArchieComics So is every issue of the Archie reboot going have a different artist?

THE ART OF ARCHIE: THE COVERS
« on: February 26, 2013, 12:01:32 PM »
CALLING ALL ARCHIE FANS!

We here at Archie Comics are turning to our fans for some help putting together our next big project! As you know, Archie’s Editor-in-Chief/Co-President Victor Gorelick collaborated with famed comic book historian Craig Yoe in putting together The Art of Betty & Veronica, Archie’s first-ever hardcover art book. If you haven’t picked it up yet, it highlights some of the most iconic images of the legendary characters, as well as the artists behind them.

This time around, Victor and Craig are re-teaming and setting their sights on the most iconic covers in Archie history. In addition to their favorite covers, we want to know yours, too!

Check out the blog post on the main Archie Comics site to read Victor’s appeal and get the story behind this upcoming art book as well as catch a glimpse of some of his own personal favorite covers! http://www.archiecomics.com/Blogs/tabid/97/EntryId/1241/THE-ART-OF-ARCHIE-THE-COVERS-FAN-SUBMISSIONS.aspx

Let us know what you’d like to see featured in The Art of Archie: The Covers. Post here on this thread either with an image or the title and issue number for consideration and possible inclusion in the final compilation.
We can’t wait to see what you guys like so make your voice heard!

-TEAM ARCHIE

I love the early covers - They have big, clean images with uncluttered backgrounds and punchy, snarky gags.  They have a lot of Newstand 'POP'.

I find that later covers can be really cluttered with too much detail, especially the tiny figures tucked along the titles. For my tastes, they're too BUSY.

Another thing: Betty & Veronica had the unbeatable combo of beautifully drawn shapely pin-up figures topped by very 'cartoony' expressive faces. Thats why I love the early years - the B&V of the '40s and '50s are adorable, but they aren't as blandly 'pretty' as today's versions.
