  • DeCarlo Rules: No, you're right... if you DON'T own those "Best of" collections, those two Jumbo digests are must-haves... great stories, but fair warning for those that did buy TBoAC... but my point is, something happened there to cause those hastily-thrown together REreprints that don't match the solicitation descriptions for those issues.

  • PixyJunket: There's also the "trigger warning" at the front of the book, so I guess that means everything is unaltered too. Combine that with the source information and you have a wonderful format for Digests to compliment the New Riverdale stuff.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @PixyJunket -- I wonder what's going on with these recent Jumbo digests. In the case of both Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #260 and B&V Jumbo Comics Digest #233, ALL of the contents are drawn from the BEST OF ARCHIE COMICS series paperback collections. No other content outside of that, and neither of those match the contents as originally solicited in advance.

Damn, it seems like I have to get some Harry Lucey issues. Do they actually have a compilation book of stories done by Lucey? I really think most of the material I have read has come from the 90's to today era and I have liked the majority of that stuff. Artists that I especially enjoy there work is Gisele Lagace, Fiona Staples, and I have also loved the cover of Betty and Veronica variant #275 by Adam Hughes. So I am extremely excited to hear that the new Betty and Veronica Rebooted series that I hope will be out at sometime will be done by Adam Hughes.

Does this help?

I tend to buy various digests- whichever is drawn by Dan Decarlo. The comics I buy have to have them styled in a 50s-60s manner in at least 1 strip :p
I tend to be a bit more picky as I am heavy on absorbing the fashion.

Do you have the Best of Dan DeCarlo books by IDW?

I'm a 45 year old male, and I have interests in more things than Archie that certain people would shake their heads in disapproval at. I really don't care, and most people don't care either. My favourite band since grade 7 has been Rush. How many times have I been told that Rush sucks? Well, if they do suck, it didn't hold them back from being successful at something they love doing. You know, I could take time to explain that the Powerpuff Girls, for instance, really isn't a little girls' cartoon at all. The bottom line is that if you like something and it isn't hurting anyone, then you shouldn't have to justify liking it. It's no one's business. No matter what you do in life, there will always be people judging you. That's their problem- not yours, because ultimately they're not happy and just trying to compensate for something they're lacking.

That is all  ;)

Not only do my Wal-Marts carry all the digests, but you can buy any 3 for $10. That includes the jumbos!

What are the 12 digests you're missing?

It's nice to see my old friends B-ko and the Ziggster back. You've been missed!

Wish I could read the article! My phone isn't letting me view it!

From what you said it sounds very interesting!

Check your messages  :)

How about if I can check mine as well? (Hint, hint)  :D

I think you should...

That's a disturbing amount of variant covers for Archie #1. With that many, you think they'd at least have one by each of the current artists. Fernando Ruiz posted a sketch in the new style a while back that was way better than many of these variants, if you ask me!

That last pic (from the comic cover with Betty and Veronica listening to the Beatles) is one of my favourite renditions of the girls EVER  :smitten:

... and my Treasury Edition comment was a throwback to the DC and Marvel oversized comics of the 70's and 80's. How cool would it be to see Archie on oversized pages?

I wish they'd put out a digital exclusive collection of what are probably my all-time favorite Archie stories, which I call "the Archie primers". I'm pretty sure just about all of these were written by Frank Doyle and drawn by Harry Lucey or Dan DeCarlo. What they are is shorts frequently told in rhyme, and sometimes without dialogue. When there is dialogue, sometimes it's of the "breaking the fourth wall" type where Archie (usually it's Archie) looks out of panel (often while other characters go about whatever they're doing, paying him no attention), and addresses his remarks to the readers directly. The situations depicted are usually typical situations seen in Archie stories, but the stories have a bare-bones honesty about them that explains the characters and their motivations, telling you point blank things that are usually only inferred about the characters. Typically, Archie, Betty, and Veronica are the only characters, although there could be others. I don't know how many of these actually exist, but they are little gems. I've only actually seen about 4 of these so far, but presumably others exist.

Forget about digital exclusive for this one - I'd buy that in an oversized deluxe treasury edition!

I assume that Archie Comics basically doesn't want to spend a penny or expend any time or effort. I'd always rather have anything I'm asking for in the best-quality presentation possible... preferably some sort of Archives/Masterworks-style deluxe hardcover, after that a trade paperback, or even a digest, over a non-physical digital collection. That's only the last resort, but at least it's one that seems to have a faint glimmer of hope. So if they already have the stories they've scanned for digital versions of the digests or TPB collections, then there's at least a reasonable possibility it could happen since all they have to do is shuffle a few existing digital images together and come up with a cover image.

Oh, I'm not expecting to ever see something like that in print. It's just wishful thinking. I am very grateful to have a nice collection of IDW Best Of books, though..
