  • 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. :/
    July 09, 2018, 09:05:40 PM
  • 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.

    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).

Archie 1
« on: April 17, 2016, 04:33:59 PM »
Archie 1 reprints have been running in the back of WORLD OF ARCHIE since the beginning of the year (that's reprints of the prehistoric first Archie & friends, not reprints from ARCHIE #1), replacing the usual Little Archie section. SAGG prefers Archie in his own time period, rather than in the future or past. I prefer Archie in his own time period too, but to me, his 'time period' is "teenager" (which is why I have no interest in "Little" versions of any of the characters). So as long as Archie and the gang are teenagers, it doesn't matter to me whether their stories are in the historical (or prehistorical) past or the future - it makes a nice change from the usual present-day shenanigans once in a while. So far, here's what we've got:

WORLD OF ARCHIE (JUMBO) 55
Cave Man Casanova (6 pages)
Ruff and Ready (5 pages)

WORLD OF ARCHIE (ANNUAL) 56
The Beast (5 pages)
Handyman's Special (6 pages)

WORLD OF ARCHIE 57
Dino-Mite (5 pages)
Lullabye of Birdland (5 pages)
The Most Important Invention (1 page)

WORLD OF ARCHIE 58
Bag of Tricks (6 pages)
The Thing Maker (5 pages)

But actually, I only post this as a preface to a question that just occurred to me about the Archie 1 stories...

We've seen Archie 1, Jughead 1, Reggie 1, Betty 1, and Veronica 1. They all appear in most of the stories. In a few stories, I can even recall a Hiram 1, Weatherbee 1, and I think in at least one story I saw a Grundy 1, Flutesnoot 1, and Kleats 1, possibly even a Smithers 1. None of these are actually usually referred to in the stories by those names, by the way, not even Archie 1. Names of any of the characters are seldom if ever mentioned, except in quite a few stories there is "Big One" (who is actually Big Moose, but presumably mooses haven't evolved thus far, since dinosaurs, pterosaurs, mastodons and smilodons seem to be the predominant fauna observed - so no "Moose 1"). But this brings up the question -- has there ever been a Fred 1 or Mary 1, Hal 1, Alice 1, or Hermione 1? What about a Midge 1, Dilton 1, Chuck 1, Nancy 1 or Ethel 1? I wouldn't expect to see a Cheryl 1, since all of these stories predate her reappearance at the end of "Love Showdown" in the 1990s (but who knows, since some of those stories were concurrent with Cheryl's 1980s appearances).

At THIS LINK you will find some info about the Archie 1 series, just click through each title. I saw on a few Dilton, Midge, Weatherbee & Grundy for instance.

Eh. I just prefer Archie in the modern world, no matter what his age is. :) To me, he just looks out of place anywhere else, be it with dinosaurs, flying cars, or dragons. Whatever floats your boat...

It's Little Archie that's out of place. It's a different genre, a different tone, and a different style. Little Archie is about as much like Archie as Archie is like Adventures of The Fly.


The stories where he appears in different times were later attributed to "The Mighty Archie Art Players" in an attempt to justify them as fiction from the perspective of the standard Archie stories, but they really existed just to break up the routine of things. You could think of them as "what if" stories, but really it's just a cartoon. Nobody demanded an explanation for why the Three Stooges might turn up in medieval times or the old west in one short or another. The costumes were available from the costuming department, and it gives a little variety to the scripts. They're still the Stooges regardless.
