  • DeCarlo Rules: What I don't understand is why they're trying to discourage subscriptions to B&V FRIENDS Jumbo digest. It's been published at 10 times per year frequency for the last 3 years -- just like the other B&V jumbo digest. So if they're both published just as often, why do they offer a choice of 10 issue or 20 issue subscriptions for BETTY & VERONICA, but only a 6 issue subscription for B&V FRIENDS? You can get a 12-issue subscription to B&V FRIENDS on the website, but if I remember correctly, the printed ad for subs only offers the 6-issue sub option. Why isn't it the same option as the other digests (10 issues or 20 issues), if they're all published 10 times a year? And they ARE.

  • Tuxedo Mark: Just looked at Archie Comics' subsciption page. Archie Meets Batman '66 is a six-issue miniseries. Archie 1941 is a five-issue miniseries. There's a six-issue subscription for Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever and Vixens (surprisingly; might get transferred to the new B&V title) and a twelve-issue subscription for Riverdale. Riverdale Digest isn't listed, so it looks like it's been cancelled.

  • CAPalace: I'm a woman btw and I'm just so sick of the blatant anti-men thing going on in comics these days. It's not doing women any favors either. :/

  • CAPalace: They're banking on Archie 700 to sell a lot because "lol a new number wow lol" and it will for the first issue but it'll just go back to the average/poor numbers it had before. And YOU KNOW with that writer on B+V it's going to turn into an anti-men, oooh girl power lol violence against men and demeaning men is feminism and fun lol lol Good luck. I'll stick to Ebay to find the DeCarlo stuff thanks.

  • Tuxedo Mark: I'm looking forward to the new B&V series. Personally, I think that previous B&V series by what's-his-name was way worse than anything that Rotante wrote on Vixens.
    July 09, 2018, 08:43:47 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So, so predictable... they love to exploit NUMBERS, whether it's a single digit (1 or 0) or a triple-digit ending in 00. Good lord, I can't believe they're actually giving Jamie Rotante ANOTHER B&V series to write ruin! She is the worst I've read -- although it's a tough call, Marguerite Bennett was pretty horrible as well. Nick Spencer can actually be quite good as a writer... or pretty bad, depending on the character and the direction. He was great on ANT-MAN and SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN (both books that had a strong humorous subtext), and not so hot on CAPTAIN AMERICA and THE AVENGERS. And he's he new writer on (yet another) first issue of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, so I wouldn't guess the ARCHIE gig will last. ACP could probably only afford to hire him for that ONE issue, #700.

  • Vegan Jughead: ARCHIE isn't on hiatus officially. The last official word from Archie Comics is that there is "big news about the flagship ARCHIE title" coming up after the "1941" miniseries. We'll see. RIVERDALE is supposed to come back early '19 after the TV show returns.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I guess there's still THE HUNGER and VAMPIRONICA, but they're still so new that it's hard to think of them as "ongoing".
    July 05, 2018, 12:14:16 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So both ARCHIE and RIVERDALE are "on hiatus"? That means ACP has no ongoing floppy comic titles. Not a good sign. Good thing they still have the digests going (knock on wood).

I'm tempted, but I haven't heard great things about subscribing with them. (Even when I was a kid subscribed to the Betty and Veronica digests, I remember them not showing up and my dad having to call lol.)

Anyone totally disagree with that? Because, like I said, I'm pretty tempted if there's still under 100 people subscribing.

Three years ago I renewed my subscriptions to the digests for 2 years. Got a great deal at that time. Of course, some books went from 10/11 times a year to 6, so the subscriptions for some books turned into 3 years. Last summer when Archie closed their offices for 2 weeks, laid off staff, and changed their distribution center - trouble started. While they were closed for 2 weeks I missed 3 books. I emailed them about it & they said the books were 'sold out'. To be fair they did extend my subscriptions, but since then I've emailed them about every 2 months for missed issues. My subscriptions run out next month & I'm not renewing. OK, now here's the good news. In Canada you can go into any WalMart & get 3 digests (you have to buy 3), regardless of the cover price, for $10.00 Canadian + tax. Most of the digests in Canada are $5.99 and $6.99. You can do the math. If I subscribe I have to pay in U$ Dollar$. I just check as each digest comes out, wander over to the WalMart Supercenter & pick them up. Every now & then I have to take a 'Sonic' book to make up 3 because of the lag in books coming out. Trust me, I'm still ahead. Do I still buy Archie books? Sure, but I won't subscribe again.

The 100 is to just get people to buy subscriptions before they "run out." I'm pretty sure they'll extend the special pricing to more than 100 people.


When people were reporting they were getting their subscriptions up to a week early I was tempted to subscribe again. But it is so variable even within a title. i.e. the Jughead digest doesn't always come early and sometimes it's even late!


The whole point of a subscription is to make things easier and cheaper for the consumer. The digests are supposed to come automatically in the mail on time so you don't have to worry about going out to buy them from a store or even online. I much prefer reading them digitally now on the day they're released. The price of wasting my time having to call or email them to get my copy isn't worth the money I'd be saving through a subscription. I still buy some things physically but usually just variant covers or things that aren't available digitally.

100% right. For example I haven't gotten 'Betty & Veronica Friends' digest #250. It's been out at the grocery stores for about 3 - 4 weeks. So - once again - tomorrow I'll have to send them off an email. They give you up to 90 days to report a missing book, but it's a question of yes/no they'll send you a replacement book. My subscription ends at #251 & then I'll go back to buying it (at a discount) in store. On a more positive note, B&V friends #249 was a good digest. Good assortment of artists from past years & good stories.

Okay, already. Quit with the griping. I just thought there might be somebody interested.

When you get right down to it, most of these comics aren't worth buying anyway. Better to just download them off torrents or something.
