  • Vegan Jughead: I'm gonna get it but I'm waiting for it to be at Barnes and Noble which I think will be July 10th or so. They released it to the direct market (comic shops) first.

  • DeCarlo Rules: @irishmoxie -- It's definitely complete. All six of the 1958-59 Sy Reit/Bob White original issues, plus the feature-length "Good Guys of the Galaxy" by Tom DeFalco & Fernando Ruiz from ARCHIE #655, and three 5-page digest shorts that guest-starred Cosmo -- and the complete first issue of the Ian Flynn/Tracy Yarley COSMO (2017) thrown in for good measure. It follows the same layout/format as the previous JUGHEAD'S TIME POLICE, even though that didn't carry the "Archie Comics Presents..." trade dress. Not a bad buy for $11.

  • DeCarlo Rules: ...Marvel's earlier JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS in there, so the DE Tarzan comics need to go in a different box, and SHEENA (also a recent DE title) and DC's RIMA THE JUNGLE GIRL will help fill up that box.
    June 11, 2018, 07:40:48 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Recently. DE's unauthorized LORD OF THE JUNGLE Tarzan adaptations (and its authorized THE GREATEST ADVENTURE) won't fit into my existing box of previous Tarzan comics from Gold Key, DC, and Dark Horse, so I have to start a new box. Logically these get filed with DE's unauthorized WARLORD OF MARS comics (including DEJAH THORIS) and their authorized JOHN CARTER, WARLORD OF MARS. But I also want to squeeze Marve;

  • DeCarlo Rules: Interesting. I tend not to group titles by publisher at all, if the characters were not created as work-for-hire (meaning the publisher is legally considered the 'author' of the character). Do they belong to that publisher's "universe" (assuming it has one)? There are some publishers like Dynamite Entertainment where the vast majority of the titles they publish are licensed, and thus were "inherited" from other publishers. Therefore it makes more sense to me to group them together in boxes with similar characters. Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake comics (regardless of who the actual publisher was) go together in the same box because they're all classic adventure heroes licensed from Hearst Entertainment (formerly King Features Syndicate). Pulp fiction heroes like The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Spider (regardless of the fact that the latter did not originate with the same publisher as the first two) also get grouped together. Space considerations allowing, Tarzan (and other Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations) might share the same box with Sheena and Rima, but NOT with Ka-Zar, because he's a Marvel Universe character.

  • rusty: I do keep all Star Trek series together in their own section and all Star Wars books together.  I also keep all 2000AD titles together and manga books get their own section.  For titles that have switched publishers, I usually keep them all with the publisher that I identify them with the most.  Tarzan has been published by a variety of publishers, but I keep them with Dell/Gold Key.  Conan is starting to get a bit close with all the success Dark Horse has had, but I still identify Conan more with Marvel.
    June 11, 2018, 06:27:26 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Believe it or not, I even have a box labeled "Pseudo-manga" that contains comics published by American companies and created by American creators like Astro Boy & Racer X (Now Comics), Battle of the Planets (Gold Key & Top Cow/Image), Captain Harlock (Malibu), Godzilla (Dark Horse) and Ultraman. I just want to keep those separate from the boxes of real translated manga in floppy comic format.
    June 11, 2018, 03:34:17 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: Well. the problem is when you get titles with licensed characters that aren't owned by the publisher. So if you collect Star Trek comics, you'd have different series published by Gold Key, Marvel, DC, and IDW (and I probably missed one in there). It doesn't make sense to me to put them in different boxes by publisher, but to each his own. Disney comics would be another example. There are even some instances where if I like a certain artist enough, I will put all his work regardless of publisher or characters into one box, like Paul Gulacy, Steve Rude, or Mike Allred (and file them chronologically from older to newer, rather than alphabetically). Those are examples where my interest in the creator far exceeds my relative interest in whatever characters are involved.
    June 11, 2018, 03:14:29 PM
  • rusty: That makes sense.  There are many ways that people can file books.  What I do is file by company or category and then alphabetically within each section.  My first category is Richie Rich then Archie, then other Harvey titles, then Disney, then other humor/kids books, then by company (unless it is a company where I don't have very many books from them.  Star Trek and Star Wars each get their own section as well.  I will probably revamp a bit when I do my next major sort/merge.  The biggest section by far for me is DC.
    June 11, 2018, 09:28:59 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I don't even file my comics alphabetically. I file them according to how closely they're related to other titles, but it's all dependent on the number of issues I have of any given title, and what will fit into a single box. Fpr ACP comics I just put all the short-run series (whether an actual miniseries or just a not particularly successful title) into one box. Even though some of those short run series star Jughead, and I could as easily file those together with the main JUGHEAD title in another box. For longer running ACP titles, "girl" titles are sorted into different boxes than "boy" titles. Eventually when I have enough issues of BETTY (and BETTY AND ME and BETTY'S DIARY) they'll get their own box, and VERONICA will get her own box.
    June 10, 2018, 09:49:06 AM
  • rusty: I file Jughead under J and Reggie under R in all of their incarnations, though I do file the original Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen books under S since that keeps them with the Superman books and also because they kept that title throughout their entire run.  If anyone wants to look up Jughead or Reggie in Overstreet, though, they will have to look under A for the early issues.

  • BettyReggie: I can't wait to get that Reggie book. It's coming out the day after my 39th Birthday.

Author Topic: COMIC BOOK CREATOR #16 will feature interviews with Dan Parent, Dean Haspiel  (Read 1816 times)

DeCarlo Rules

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
