  • Archie Comics Collector: @spazaru- I would think they would keep that vault section as it is so unique to the annuals and jumbo comics. We will find out next month when the first jumbo 288 pager releases. As for good old Stan Goldberg, I am a #1 fan, of early and late Stan Goldberg. Obviously his art in later years was not at the same level as his early years, his art just says Archie to me and his work on the original Archie Marries storyline got me back into Archie comics and I have not looked back since so I credit him for that. @John, looking forward to the new stories in the upcoming digests.

  • SaveFearow: which do you think is a better value, the Jumbos or the 1000 pagers?
    Yesterday at 02:02:16 PM
  • spazaru: I saw that Jon.  Hopefully they'll keep that up!
    Yesterday at 01:43:42 PM
  • JonInIowaCity: The positive side about the jumbos is that they are now including new material and not just reprints.
    Yesterday at 01:10:02 PM
  • spazaru: I agree ACC.  The Jumbo Comics are the best.  I just hope the page decrease doesn't come out of the Classic Vault section.  They can take it out of the latter period Stan Goldberg and I wouldn't miss it! Ha ha.

  • spazaru: Thanks for calling ACC.  That sucks, especially with the latest price increase.
    Yesterday at 10:41:27 AM
  • Archie Comics Collector: Just called Archie, Jumbo comics digests are going to be decreased to 288 pages starting with Betty and Veronica Friends #240 appearing later next month. The last jumbo comics at 320 pages seems to be Jughead and Archie #5 being released in the next few weeks.
    Yesterday at 09:51:16 AM

  • SaveFearow: nice blog Jon. I'll miss LWA too but it had a good run and a very sweet epilogue.
    Yesterday at 12:53:38 AM
  • spazaru: sorry, got cut off.  You're right, they are 288 pages.  Let us know what you find out after you call Archie.

Is it still such a pain to subscribe with Archie Comicsw and get the full, promised number of issues?

21
Archie and Betty--blue. Very common, in blondes & gingers.

Veronica--black/dark eyes. For those hot, sultry looks, shot across a room. Or volcanic rages, whatever.

Reggie, blue or brown, your pick.

Midge--blue or brown. Ditto Moose.

Jughead...gray. On the rare occasions they are open.

Sabrina--Cat/Emerald Green, darn it!   :tickedoff:Never blue! Looks more "witchy" that way.

Those Archie do-it-yourself comics from the 50s would look good on my shelf.

General Comics / Re: What do you think of the newspaper funnies now?
« on: April 27, 2014, 06:29:02 AM »
The newspaper comic is a dying art, no longer interesting to read in your kitchen table in the morning before you head out to work or school. The papers are shrinking the size of most of them and other papers abandoned them, save the political themed cartoons. Would be nice to see the dailies in color not just the sundays. I put the blame on internet comics releases, some Dilbert fans for example can load the comics and read them on the screen, and not buy an ink-and-paint newspaper.


...FWIW the San Francisco Chronicle here runs all it dalies in color now .

The Internet has been around since the 80s, the newspaper business model for more than 200 years.
Guess which one is run by people too rigid to change?

Here some new Archie books that coming out this year and but sadly none of them have picture to go along with it. So we guess all be surprised.

it seems to me amazon has pushed the dates for some titles

Betty & Veronica: Love at First Bite :  (September 26, 2017)


The Complete Sabrina the Teenage Witch: 1962-1971 (Sabrina's Spellbook) : (December 27, 2016)

is this true???  >:(

Not automatically.
I've seen Amazon give screwy dates, whenever they can't get good info.

25
The TPB The Best of Archie Comics: Betty and Veronica includes a checklist of collected editions on the inside covers.  The Sabrina book is listed for a June release.  It was originally solicited for May via Amazon, then moved to "unavailable".  Now it's 2 1/2 years from now?  Weird.


Amazon sometimes boosts the date back by years, if an exact date aint available.

Seen it before.

Historical Archie.

Riverdale & all it's inhabitants, but set in different historical periods.
The Old West, Victorian England, Elizabethan England, etc.
Spend a year doing stories set in one era, then a year set in another.

« on: April 24, 2014, 07:21:22 AM »
Elizabeth
Hebrew/Greek/English: My God is a vow
English, Biblical: From Ελισαβετ (Elisabet), the Greek form of the Hebrew name אֱלִישֶׁבַע ('Elisheva') meaning "my God is an oath" or perhaps "my God is abundance". In the Old Testament Elisheba is the wife of Aaron. In the New Testament Elizabeth is the mother of John the Baptist. It was also borne by the 12th-century Saint Elizabeth, a daughter of King Andrew II of Hungary who became a Franciscan nun and lived in poverty. This was also the name of a ruling queen of England and an empress of Russia. Famous modern bearers include the British queen Elizabeth II and actress Elizabeth Taylor.
Rating: 2/5


Veronica
Greek: Victory bringer
English, Italian, Romanian: Latin form of BERENICE (see below), the spelling influenced by the ecclesiastical Latin phrase vera icon meaning "true image". This was the name of a legendary saint who wiped Jesus's face with a towel and then found his image imprinted upon it.
Rating: 3/5

Bernenice
English, Italian
Macedonian form of the Greek name Φερενικη (Pherenike), which meant "bringing victory" from φερω (phero) "to bring" and νικη (nike) "victory". This name was common among the Ptolemy ruling family of Egypt.



If we go by names, this means that:

  • Veronica really is the Cleopatra of Riverdale High
  • Veronica will win--i.e. marry Archie, defeating Betty
  • After losing to Veronica, Betty will take Holy Vows, and become a Nun.
