  • DeCarlo Rules: On the plus side, of those 5 issues of B&V Friends in 2017, 2 of them are Jumbo issues and the other three are Annuals.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Definitely. I was a little worried when there was no B&V Friends solicitation for November... that means only 5 issues came out this year, instead of 6 -- but since you got a renewal notice, and there's an issue solicited for December, it looks like it will continue!  :)

  • DeCarlo Rules: I just got email confirmation from the ACP subscription department... not only is JUGHEAD AND ARCHIE digest ending, but ARCHIE'S FUNHOUSE digest is ending as well. Both subscriptions are automatically switched to the new ARCHIE AND ME digest, unless a subscriber requests a different digest title. No word on B&V FRIENDS digest so far; here's hoping "no news is good news" in this case.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Only one Josie comic. About a dozen issues of Sabrina, a dozen issues of Veronica, a dozen Archie Giant Series issues, half-a-dozen B&V Spectaculars, 9 FCBD and HCF issues I was missing. A bunch of different #100, 200, 300 & 400 issues, and a bunch of miscellaneous stuff.

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
