  • 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 and Varsity Jackets
« on: April 07, 2017, 03:38:54 pm »
Richie Cunningham often wore a varsity jacket on Happy Days.  However, I do not think Archie ever wore a varsity jacket in the 1950s, although they certainly existed at that time.  When was the first time Archie wore a varsity jacket.  I am thinking it is not until at least the 1970s, maybe even the 1980s.

They used to be "Varsity Sweaters.

Jackets came later.

Archie was still wearing the sweater with the R on it well into the 1980s.  I did find what looks like it may be a letter jacket on the cover of Archie at Riverdale High #70 from 1980.  It's got the R on it at least.  There may very well have been earlier appearances, but I just did a cursory glance at the covers of a few titles.

He's had it (jacket or sweater, doesn't matter) sometime in the 2000s, or even the 2010s, hasn't he?  I could have sworn, somewhere. Of course it's not consistent or anything, it's just a whenever-type thing, right?

The Varsity sweater has been a mainstay on covers since Archie #1.  I can't think of many instances of his wearing a Varsity jacket.  Glad Rusty found one example.

Here's another example from Archie Giant Series #601 - October 1989

Wasn't that sweater/vest thing he wore in the 50s considered a varsity sweater?

  I was only referring to varsity jackets.  I knew about the varsity sweater.
