  • DeCarlo Rules: It's crazy that ACP hasn't reprinted those 2 issues as a double-size one-shot. Or the lead story in a TP collection of vampire stories (including "Twilite" and others).

  • irishmoxie: That's crazy about those Betty and Veronica issues being worth so much. They're only about 6 years old. I'm pretty sure I have copies of them.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On a relatated note, the real FIRST Vampironica appeared in Larry Welz' underground comic Cherry Poptart #1 [link]. That can be had right now, CGCed at 9.4, at the Buy-It-Now price of $280 on ebay. Although the book had several subsequent printings, only the first printing ($2 cover price) contains the Vampironica story. Much, much scarcer than B&V #261 & 262, but then far fewer people seem to be aware of its existence. It may not be the same Vampironica as the one that appears in her own comic book from ACP, but then you can easily make the argument that neither is the Vampironica from B&V 261-262.

  • rusty: Crazy.  I obviously missed that back then.
    November 03, 2018, 10:06:11 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yes, I mentioned this a while back somewhere around the time Vampironica #1 was first solicted or shipped. I even mentioned it to Dan Parent and told him if he still had copies he should get them CGC'ed.
    November 03, 2018, 04:33:03 pm
  • rusty: Apparently Betty and Veronica #261 and 262 (1987 series) are popular now due to Vampironica.  Somebody actually purchased a copy of #261 for $299 on ebay recently.

Archie 75th Anniversary Digest-Available early September
« on: July 26, 2016, 12:27:33 pm »
Has anyone ordered a subscription to the new Archie 75th Anniversary Digests. Below is the info from the email I received promoting a special $29.99 price for 12 issues.







-Did you know Archie is launching the Archie 75th Anniversary Digest in September?

-There will only be 12 issues and each one is 224 pages. The cover price is $6.99 U.S. and $8.99 Canada. If you bought each digest individually it would cost you $83.88 in the U.S. and $107.88 in Canada.
 
-Because you are a loyal Archie email subscriber, for a limited time, you get this exclusive offer for ALL 12 issues for as little as $29.99!!

Has anyone bought a subscription? I have since I subscribe to all the Digests. I just hope that this project is done well and is not just copy and paste of other collections already out there but unique.

I have also added a poll to this thread for you all to vote in.

DeCarlo Rules

Haven't done it yet, but I plan to. $2.50 per issue for 12 Jumbo digests (well, 32 pages less than the standard Jumbo Comics digests -- and 32 pages more than a Comics Annual, but still) is too good a deal to pass up. Hopefully we can expect a much higher percentage of older stories (in line with the 75th Anniversary Celebration theme) in these than is the case for a typical digest, as well. Not that there's anything wrong with the more recent stories from the last three decades that usually make up the bulk of the typical digest reprints, but this is a one-time deal, for 12 issues only, so they have to be pulling some hidden gems out of the vault for this. I would bet that the stories selected for inclusion in these digests will run the breadth of most of the teen humor titles published by ACP over the past 75 years, too, not just stories of the Gang of Five. I hope they reprint some stories from Seymour, My Son and More Seymour -- I've always wanted to read those.

My biggest fear would be that they just took the same stories that were in The Best of Archie Comics, and Archie's Favorite Stories and mixed them up a little, then divided them into 12 equal piles of 224 pages each. Let's hope not. Last year there were four Jumbo Comics digests ("We interrupt your regularly-scheduled digest for A Very Special Jumbo Comics Digest presentation...") that did exactly that, but I hope we've seen the end of that sort of recycling.

The Downloader

I plan to.  My grandfather is the one that buys me the subs.  I'm currently only subbed to three (maybe two) digests (was subbed to all, but it ran out).  Ill try this sub, and if it is delivered properly, not out of package, and not obviously read by the mail people, then I will resub to all the digest for 1 more year.  I don't sub to two years, because that is to far into the future to tell if that digest will still be produced or not.

Yeah, but for subscribing to them for two years, you get a lower rate per issue (and if one of those titles were to be cancelled, you could just transfer the remainder of your subscription issues to another title). Plus by subscribing for two years, you're actually helping to insure that a particular title continues to be published. No guarantees, of course, but the less people who subscribe to that particular digest, the more likely it is to be cancelled. The reason the subscriptions are so cheap is because even with additional cost of bulk mailing, and the deep discount to the consumer off the cover price, Archie Comic Publications is keeping a far larger percentage of that cover price for themselves than is the case where they have to share that cover price with a distributor and a retailer.

I thought about subscribing but I'm gonna wait and see. While I enjoyed the 75 years, 75 stories book I like reading back issues of Josie and Sabrina better. I am interested in that magic, music, and mayhem book minus the little Archie part. I wish that was a digest line.

It's more like the Giant Comics Digest (which they don't offer subscriptions to, either). It does say "Vol. 1", so presumably if enough people buy it, they'd make more (although not every volume would necessarily spotlight the same characters). Yeah, I could do without the Little Archie as well. They just don't want to do any single-character collections except for Archie or B&V, though. That's "Magic (Sabrina), Music (Josie), and Mischief" (Little Archie). If it were Mayhem, then it would probably be Sabrina, Josie and Afterlife With Archie;D

Moepyro

Oh man, this is neat. I really wish they would try harder for the cover art of this new digest. 75th anniversary... really generic Archie head, thats it? You think they'd wanna tie this in with the TV show coming out to garner more interest. Like... the actors as their characters in Archie style? ???
