Just click on the link to the site in the first post of the thread (or in my signature in any of my posts), and the new review will be at the top of the front page of my blog. :)

  • DeCarlo Rules: You won't have to wait longer than next Wednesday, Vegan. The Best of Josie is on Diamond's confirmed shipping list for next week.
    August 17, 2017, 02:42:59 PM
  • Vegan Jughead: Good point on the pricing.  The new Josie and the Pussycats trade is only $9.99 and I can't wait for it.  I can't imagine they're moving many digests at retail.  The hardcore geeks like us subscribe but I doubt our numbers are large.
    August 17, 2017, 10:01:49 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @Vegan - That investment capital helped pay for Adam Hughes, and printer's bill, plus they resurrected a few of their old cancelled solicits on trade paperbacks that the work had already been completed on.
    August 17, 2017, 09:45:09 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm going to take a wild guess and say that ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST must contain a new 20-page story. But why wouldn't they advertise that fact? It's baffling trying to guess what they're thinking.
    August 17, 2017, 09:37:32 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So Double Digests are 160 pages for $5.99, but ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST is 128 pages for $6.99? Yet somehow a 416-page trade paperback is priced at $9.99?? Or $12.99 for 104 pages of Adam Hughes reprints. I guess they must be using the old "dart-board pricing" method!
    August 17, 2017, 09:28:34 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: Archie November 2017 solicitations: Digests are up to $5.99!  Annuals are $6.99 so I guess Jumbos will be $7.99?  No one is paying that.  Subscribe or don't bother.  [link]
    August 17, 2017, 08:32:09 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: DCR and Downloader, remember they also got that investment capital last year.  I think it was for a few hundred thousand dollars.  I don't know how long that will last, but I'm sure they're using that.
    August 17, 2017, 06:46:26 AM
  • BettyReggie: I saw the November 2017 Solicitations. Fiona Staples is doing a few covers. I can't wait to see what they look like though because they didn't show them yet.

This is WAY advance notice, since this publication isn't due to come out until sometime this summer, but I'm just incredibly stoked that some comic fan publication is finally giving some recognition to Archie Comics. Here's a preview of the cover:



And the solicitation copy for this issue:

Quote
Summer 2017 - 84 FULL-COLOR pages

COMIC BOOK CREATOR #16 visits Riverdale High, U.S.A., to celebrate America's Typical Teenager Archie and his pals 'n gals—as well as the mighty MLJ heroes of yesteryear and those of today's "Dark Circle"—with a look at the 75-year-old comics line's wildest characters and titles. Plus we conduct career-spanning conversations with two of the imprint's hottest creators: Brooklyn's own DEAN HASPIEL (the Emmy-winning alternative-slash-mainstream artist who collaborated with HARVEY PEKAR) and DAN PARENT (GLADD award-winning cartoonist and creator of the Archie universe's ground-breaking gay character, Kevin Keller), who both jam on our great exclusive cover depicting a face-off between humor and heroes. Rounding out the ish are our usual features to fascinate and enlighten, including the hilarious Fred Hembeck. Edited by Jon B. Cooke.

Dean Haspiel previously collaborated with Mark Waid on THE FOX miniseries for Red Circle, the only title to carry over into a second miniseries for Dark Circle.

In addition to having the print version of the magazine distributed through Diamond Comics, TwoMorrows will offer the digital version for sale on its website here:
http://twomorrows.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=98_132&products_id=1272
If you order the print version of the magazine direct from TwoMorrows, you can also get the digital version as a free bonus.

This looks fantastic.  Thanks for sharing!

 I really enjoyed the Fox mini series it was loads of fun! Thanks for sharing that...

DeCarlo Rules

I should mention that this isn't the first issue of a TwoMorrows fan magazine to focus on the MLJ/Mighty Comics/Red Circle heroes.

Previous cover-featured issues in which the focus was on those characters appeared in:

ALTER EGO #82:

A free 25-page digital preview of that issue is located here:
http://twomorrows.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=98_55&products_id=738

ALTER EGO #96:

A free 25-page digital preview of that issue is located here:
http://twomorrows.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=98_55&products_id=878

... and of course, the major trade paperback retrospective, THE MLJ COMPANION:

A free 25-page digital preview of that issue is located here:
http://twomorrows.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=95_71&products_id=1251


The most recent publication from TwoMorrows to feature an article on an ACP character was BACK ISSUE #91 (Sept. 2016), the "All Jerks Issue!"...


... which contained a 5-page article by Steven Thompson, "Archie's Antagonist, Reggie Mantle":


The traditional Archie humor characters (and artists) aren't featured in articles very often, which makes the above article somewhat of a rarity for the TwoMorrows group of fan magazines. That's why I was delighted to see COMIC BOOK CREATOR, which focuses its articles and interviews pretty much exclusively on artists and writers, rather than characters, having a major long career-spanning retrospective interview with Dan Parent. In past fanzines, I can recall a few articles and/or interviews with Dan DeCarlo, but this is the first spotlighting an ACP artist from the modern era (1987- ). He's long overdue for the recognition.

Super-Awesome
