  • DeCarlo Rules: That's pretty much the whole point of having an internet -- it connects you to entertainment, information, and people who would otherwise be too far away from you physically, or would involve much greater effort on your part to connect with. And although there are some advantages for comic book collectors inherent in the direct-market dedicated comic book shop system, the major BIG (obvious) DISadvantage is that only a few thousand of those shops exist, compared to the huge number of retailers who used to carry comic books along with their other products back in the days of the "newsstand distribution system".

  • DeCarlo Rules: @Archiecomicxfan215 - FCBD comic books may be free to you, but the retailer has to PAY for those comic books he gives away for free. The publishers of the FCBD comics make no profit off them, and they're distributed to retailers by Diamond Comics for free, but they have to charge comic shop owners money for them, because paper and printing costs money. Your local comic shop owner loses a small amount of money with every FCBD comic book he gives away. Of course the whole idea behind FCBD is that sampling those free comic books will create interest in customers actually BUYing the retail versions of those FCBD comic books later on.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Don't forget to pick up the FCBD issue of DIE KITTY DIE: I Love You to Death! by Dan & Fernando from Chapterhouse Comics! Oh, and I guess if you care about that RIVERDALE thing, you could pick up the FCBD issue where Pop Tate eavesdrops on all the conversations of his teenage customers (makes him sound a little creepy, if you ask me...) Doesn't an adult business proprietor have more important things to worry about???

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.
